I knew Jim from way back, His heart was as big as his frame, it saddens me that it has given out on him, and yet another light has been dimmed in this Folk World of ours.
We all remember the Lochabie Disaster, Jim performed at that mammoth
event, Scottish Television put out a short recording of it late one night, and there of course was the lad, and he sang what i know as "St. Pauls Song" it was highly evocative, emotional and a very very moving tribute to the victims, and their bereaved. I hope someone can do the same for him.
farewell my friend untill we meet again, keep a seat warm for me,
your buddy Scowie.
