Subject: Anyone else remember Colin Scot?
From: Lanfranc
Date: 14 Jul 00 - 06:16 PM

I discovered today from Derek Brimstone that Colin Scot died in Amsterdam some months ago. I don't think Colin had been back to the UK for a number of years, but I, for one, have fond memories of him back in the 60's and early 70's.

In recent years his reputation and notoriety were assured by Allan Taylor's song "Crazy Amsterdam" which describes visiting Scotty.

"Scotty, you're a terrible man, a rambling shambling Desperate Dan... "

Another for the Old Folkies Valhalla.

Real sad to hear of Scotty's death.
I sadly hadn't seen or heard of him since the end of the sixties.
I am racking the old brain cells to think of the title of song he did that I really liked .... got it 'Continental Trailways Bus'.
Colin had a great voice and a driving guitar style. I will be in touch with Mike Chapman later and I'll pass on the sad news, he Brimstone and Colin were good mates.

I really thought that every one who remembered him had heard about Scotty dying. It's so sad to hear at the news at a later date. Years ago I had some hard nights with Scotty(60's). The last was with Hamish Imlach at Mulligans Irish Pub in Amsterdam,that must have been around 93/94. Hamish was booked to do a Folk Workshop,instead it ended up as a riotious Drinkin' bout with music and song thrown in for good measure.Oh,yes I remember him well.Many of the real characters on the folk scene have moved on to the "Session Upstairs", Alex Campbell,Derroll Adams,Danny Kyle,Hamish Imlach and Scotty.God,I'd like to be fly on the wall with that lot together.Let's keep their memory fresh in our minds.......

I was playing old records the other day when I found a couple by Colin Scot (Thistlewaite) who, I understand, has gone to big Folk Club in the sky.
Colin burst into my life in the mid 70s and of a year or so arrived and departed, sleeping on floors etc. until he got his 'break'. I last saw him backstage at the Bournemouth Winter Gardens, where he was support to the Strawbs, in a cloud of aromatic smoke! Then he was gone. I later heard he had walked out on his contract and gone abroad.
I wonder if anyone can fill me in with any details.
Quite a character was Scotty!

There are a couple of people here who knew him, so keep this thread up. I think Pat Cooksey may have been one of them, although I am not sure about that. I saw him gigging at The Last Waterhole in Amsterdam in the early eighties. He looked as though he had some rough living behind him. He was forceful on stage though.

Scotty died over here in Amsterdam quite a few years back now. Knew him Londen years ago and last met him in Amsterdam around '93 or 4. When Big Hamish did a Gig in Mulligan's Bar. Grand night!!! Terrible man for the "Gargle." he was but a great performer. Oh, that night.... I was the last to leave... Nuff said.

Fond memories of 'Scotty', he could get an audience joining in, like nobody else I ever met.
His repertoire was eclectic, and a lot of what he sang wasn't exactly what you might call folk music. He was a force of nature, and a great entertainer.
I'm sorry he's shuffled off this mortal coil, but in a way, not surprised. he lived life hard, and to the full.
Alan Taylor's song 'Scotty', calls him "A sort of rambling gambling Desperate Dan" That says it all for me.

So please if we sing a song
ask you to sing along
Don't be afraid to try
There's joy and there's sorrow
There's hope for tomorrow

I did post a thread on here the other day, don't see it but I'm capable of goofing up anything like this so here goes again.

I first met Colin in the late 50's when he moved to Canada from UK. He hated the nickname "limey" so I called him Sotty. Seems like it stuck. We were best buds in high school (Sir Adam Beck in London, Ontario, Canada) and pretty much were linked at the hips. At that time he was into "Skiffle" or "Skiddle" music and had a wash tub with strings and a wash board that he would play with thimbles. Even then he made quite a scene when he entered a room.

I lost track in the late 50s and early 60s when I moved to California, US. Didn 't catch up until the other day when a former class made turned me on to his Amsterdam time.

Not surprised that he was a scene, also not surprised that he took the walk before the rest of us. Never one to play second fiddle, he wanted to be first at everything.

Anyone that wants to drop me a line please do. I've lots of good memories of his teen tears and will share.

During my student years (around 1975) I saw Scotty perform a lot in the Amsterdam club Folk Fairport. He always played there on Thursday nights. Wonderful songs, great fun, lots of candle light atmosphere. He made us laugh a lot with his jokes and imitations (Dylan/Cash!). A great composer, entertainer and singer.

Once he joined us at our table and talked about his years of 'fame'. He escaped from it to go and do it in his own way.

He was really a great person!

I first booked Scotty sometime around 1966 when I was a resident at a Folk Club in Clacton, Essex. When I moved up to London in 1968, he was a fixture on the Troubadour/Les Cousins circuit and I got to know him quite well. We shared several songs in our repertoires, and he once embargoed me (in a friendly way) from singing Harvey's "Hey Sandy" until his album came out, although I recall that I had learned it first! This probably arose because at that first gig in Clacton, I sang my usual three-song intro set including "Four Strong Winds" and a Dylan song. While the next singer was performing, I was buttonholed by David Bilk, Scotty's agent who was with him at the gig, and chastised for singing half of Scotty's first set! I had never heard Scotty at that stage, and told him so, but I don't think he believed me.

Anyway, as neither of us wrote much, if anything, in the way of our own songs, we continued to mine the same sources for material. When we played at the same gigs, I would often check to ensure that there wouldn't be any sources of embarrassment. Perhaps that's why people took to writing their own songs!

When he left the UK (pursued, I understood, by the Inland Revenue), he kept in touch with a number of his old friends, including Allan Taylor and Derek Brimstone, who would visit him in Amsterdam.

I have fond memories of him, and I know several ladies of a certain age who have even fonder recollections! He was a good singer and a better entertainer, and I remember his Donald Duck impression (allegedly from his time working in Disneyland) and the "Secret Love" parody alluded to above:

"Once I had a secret love
She wore a nylon negligee.
When our night of love was through
She said I wouldn't have to pay.
When I asked her why this should be,
She said 'Sealy bedding sponsors me,
Last night we were on channel three'
And my secret love's no secret any more!"

Which I still use from time to time, substituting "Dunlopillo" for "Sealy bedding", but attributing it to Scotty.

For further information, just Google "Colin Scot", there's a surprising amount there, including the reissue of his first album on CD for around £40! I have the original vinyl in good condition - I wonder how much that would be worth? The next time "antiques Roadshow" are passing, perhaps .....?

Happy days!

I knew Scotty very well in the 70's and his then other half Jo, mother of Edward and Charlie. They were all living in Kensington then. Scotty was a great singer and played some of the best 12-striong guitar anyone would ever have heard. I think Amersterdam was his undoing......I left the UK in the early 70's and when I came back around 76 I went to see Scottie who was getting very heavily into certain substances. Very sad. A talent never really fulfilled.

I met Scotty a couple of times in 1970, when he was living in Kensington with Jo & children. I was palling around with Davy Johnstone & Noel Murphy (Murph & Shaggis/Draught Porridge) & they were all in the same circle.

He was a sweet man & they were a lovely family; I am very sad to hear that he's died.

Ah, Scottie. Funnily enough I was just putting together a show featuring "Lovers Carousel" by him & "Crazy Amsterdam" from Alan Taylor, partly inspired by the death of John Martyn, another lover of the cup that cheers. Scottie never wrote much, but some of it was great & I parody his "Missing Mr. Marley" sometimes.

We knew him & Leslie well in the seventies & eighties before we moved to the states in '86. I'd book him when he toured & they'd stay for a few days of fun and amnesia. He always filled the place, everyone left happily, but then it would all begin again....

Somehow he managed to exude love and good will more than anyone I've known, and in Leslie he had the perfect soul mate. I'm pleased they found each other, we stayed with them in Amsterdam a few times and he seemed to have found a great life there with the respect that he deserved. I don't know why he never really made it, I suspect because he had an in-built BS meter and didn't handle being told what to do well.

I'll always miss him and the big hugs, stories of Disneyland, "just one drink more" and love, rarely heard him say bad of anyone.

Thanks for thinking of him

Yes I do fondly remember Colin Scott for two reasons.

1. My brother took me to see Colin perform in Derby or Lichfield (not sure now) back in the mid 80's when I was about 16 years old. Was a fantastic performance. From then on repeatdly played some taped recordings for years until the re release of one of his albums onto CD - playing this right now.

2. My late cousin was very much a fan of Scotty and very sadly passed away following a long term illness. The song 'Edward Charley and me' was played at my cousin's funeral. It still stirs the emotions whenever I hear that track.

Would love to see Scotty's other albums released on CD. Anyone any idea if that's likely to happen?

RIP dear David, RIP Scotty

not much to add, just that I remember Scotty from the Troubadour; he was a great entertainer and instantly likeable, sorry to hear he is gone.
