Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
Hi there, just found this site, I remember Colin Scot very well, I used to visit "the Folk Fairport" in Amsterdam in the early seventies at a very high rate and he played there very often.
I did thoroughly enjoy his "act" and the duettes with Mike Silver.
Actually I had the two for dinner a couple of times at my parental home in Amsterdam.
I have got some private recordings somewhere on cassette, one of a party at my house and 1 of a part radio concert in about 1974 (VPRO, I think) Furthermore I got some scraps from news papers.
As far as I can hear...it sounds very much like him... he also did an "explanatory" and "final" note on a -dance- mix CD of '96 by Mecado, it was called "mix '96" and of course the profile tyre centre advert.
That party was very special, I had another "folk" band play there -Luke Warmwater- and even some guys from CBS made a call to listen to Colin.
The last time I saw him was in the late eighties/early nineties in Hoorn a pub called Jajum, and after that I had to read in the paper that he died...suc
hg a shame, got a couple of his records on vinyl.
