Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
I was talking about Scotty only this week so it's great to find this thread. I first heard him on Noel Edmunds Sunday morning show and subsequently bought the album in a local record store in West Wales - much reduced! I moved to Trowbridge and went to Peewee's (mentioned earlier by Johnny Morris). Scotty was playing there the next week. Peewee and Alan Briars (Village Pump) were amazed I had two albums but did not know him. I met him the next week and have fond memories of a warm man and a fantastic performer. He did several gigs in the small room, some songs in complete darkness - it hid the tears. I saw him at the VP festival, late 80s I guess, and he captivated the large audience but got slated in a Folk Roots review for being way past his best. If that's true, I wish I'd seen him at his best.
