Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
I went to see Colin Scot a couple of times at his Thursday night spot
at the Folk Fairport in Amsterdam. (Must have been late '75 / early '76)
He did his 'entertainer' act all night long, playing "Johnny Cash meets Bob Dylan" type stuff as well as his own, more delicate songs.
They were great nights with lots of laughs and good music.
A year or two later Colin's single Mandolin Man got some airplay on Dutch radio.
He then also did some radio-appearances (and I think TV as well).
It didn't hit any chart, but most people on the Dutch club circuit became familiar with his name.
A few years later I got hold of his first album, also because of the Brinsley Schwarz connection.
I always liked this 'Colin Scot' LP a lot. It has some great songs and great arrangements too. The two later albums were not as strong though.

Very sad that he passed away so early.

Cheers, W.
