This thread kinda breaks my heart. If there was one experience that turned me on to folk music, folk clubs, and the whole damn folk ethos, it was seeing Colin Scot at Bridport Folk Festival and later several times at Bishops Stortford Folk Club in the early 70s. Don't ask me for a year: I can't remember. What I do remember is a larger than life performer who had that folk club knack of combining vast reserves of humour with genuine compassionate heart-rending soul. After one gig, he took the time to teach me Analine - can anyone give me further info on that song? I've seen a million 'folk' performers since - many of them brilliant - but it was Scot who gave me the heart to keep playing, and I can't pay him a greater compliment than that. I wish he was still with us.

Scot and Leslie were good friends of my father.
The first time he came to stay we met in a pub.
On meeting he threw his arms around me and whispered "which beer is the strongest?"I soon got the measure of the man.
That weekend I had a gig with my then duo.Come the scond half,my partner was to drunk to continue.Scot stepped up and played a blinder,it was great to sing "Davey" with him.
He is sadly missed.

I was working the day bar in a restaurant in San Luis Obispo on the Central Coast of California in the late 1970's when he came in one afternoon with his parents for lunch and to shoot a little pool. He told me he was here for a vacation to visit his folks(very sweet people) who were living in Atascadero, and he was also planning to play a benefit concert at the State Hospital there. We chatted throughout the afternoon and I found him to be an incredibly friendly and likable person. He spoke briefly and humbly regarding his musical career, and it was only later on a follow up visit by him when he brought me a copy of his album and kindly gave me an autograph which I still have, did I learn of his important place and influence on the world music stage. I too am sad at his passing, but happy to hear such wonderful remembrances, as I wholly believe he deserves all these kind words and more. I was someday hoping to spend an evening listening to him sing and play. Sweet dreams, Scotty

I first met Scotty at The Village Pump Folk Festival in 1974, kept in touch with him pretty much up until a couple of years before he died. I recorded him live, on an old Tascam 4 track, at a gig he did at Pewee's in Trowbridge about 1992 which I've just been remastering in my studio, it's a bit tatty round the edges but very 'Scotty'. He was a good mate of Peewe & myself and we spent time with him in Amsterdam as well as at Trowbridge festival & Pewwee's bar in Trowbridge, had some great sessions with him & Leslie his good lady. I've also got a copy of his last album on tape( I think ) called Lesley Lady Love which I've just remastered onto CD. Been quite a memorable journey listening to it, I still recall the time he stayed with me and left 14 empty smirnoff bottles under the bed as well as polishing off all my whisky! What a week that was! Got some lovely pic's of him at various gigs over the years, seems to be very little available about him on the web, must be time for someone to do a tribute to him maybe. Anyone interested in sharing any memories of Scotty can get hold of me through www.trowbridgefestival.co.uk. Johnny M

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.

Thank you so much for your detailed posting about Colin Scot ! I can't find any youtube video of his music, I'll try harder . I have his first solo album(could it be worth more than $50?!), it is SUPERB!! Brilliant songs, and I play it over and over to try to catch where Peter Hammill,Peter Gabriel,Nic Potter,Phil Collins,Rick Wakeman and Robert Fripp are on what songs ! It seems that they are either on just one; with Robert Fripp(BOB) on maybe two or three ! Thanks again, God bless, snshobbies, steve .

Hi There,
Your work is fantastic!
I am a musician, and Scot and I played at Coke Corner, Disneyland, Anaheim, California for many years in the 1960's.
Scot on banjo and 6 and 12 string guitars, and me on ragtime piano.
While theoretically we were supposed to be there to play the old ragtime tunes from that era,
We adapted all the modern songs of the day – from Dylan to rock, and mixed it in with the jazz. Plus Scot would write songs and we'd do them!
Most days, by the end of the day, we had standing room only for the last show as people were leaving the park and had seen us on the way in.
Coke Corner is on main street, left side at the end so great position.
I have to look and see if I have any recordings put away of our shows. Think there might be some reel to reel recordings somewhere.
I was very sad to learn of Scot's passing, but so happy that his followers are giving him the recognition he deserves.
Kind regards,
Bud Hedrick

I saw Scotty at the folk club at Bottallack in Cornwall run by Brenda wOOtton and John the Fish, he gave me a lift back to London after the gig. We used to see each other at clubs and he came to Malta with me for a week. That was the last time I saw him except once in Amsterdam when I just went and watched him play. Totally amazing man!!

I wrote the liner notes for the re-issue of Scot's first album (which I bought on its original release.) I was delighted that so many of the people featured on it were prepared to contribute. Sadly, I suspect its comparative lack of success financially suggests we won't be seeing the other two re-released. BUT...they'd sell well, I think. I knew him pretty well as a result of his many visits to Scarborough's Penthouse (original and best, accept no substitute) and I note contributions here from Harvey Andrews and Dr. Allan Taylor. Derek Brimstone in his memoir speaks extensively of his exploits with Scot...worth checking out as Derek writes wonderfully and was a good mate. I never did manage to contact Leslie and would also dearly love to locate Hans and Paddy, who ran the Melkweg in Amsterdam in the early 1970s and who also knew him well. It's wonderful to find this site and I'd be happy to hear from anyone with memories of this special geezer. Because Scotty was a "geezer" in the best sense, not as some spiv but as a bloke with a (sadly, fatal) zest for life and its excesses. I still believe he would have found gretaer fame had he lived, tough this is academic. You can contact me via myspace (penthouse) or facebook (matt watkinson) and even as plinthcharles@live.com Don't delay! And thank you all for giving me such wonderful memories to read and re-read. Best wishes, Matt Watkinson

How could anyone who ever knew Scotty, do anything other than remember him.
My big brother JABP and Scotty were mates. Soul mates and drinking buddies.
My sister and I were both young and smitten, as were just about all the ladies he met.
He was very gifted, funny, attractive, naughty and sexy. He was louder than life and just brilliant star.

We lost our big brother in 2001 and I tried to find Scotty to let him know and
ask him to the funeral, but now I know he was already waiting for him.

Two naughty beautiful people. Lost, missed,... but never forgotten.
So 'Cheers' boys. Here's hoping there are guitars wherever you are. x

I stumbled across the following recordings of Colin Scot today, and was trying to find out more about a favourite performer whom I'd forgotten about when I saw your thread as well.

The tracks on....

http://web.mac.com/heekesen/Fritzzel/Downloads/Artikelen/2008/5/5_Colin_Scot%2C_Dordrecht_1977.html

....were recorded in Dordrecht (Neths) at about the same time I used to go watch him at Folk Fairport in A'dam in the mid-70s. All the songs are there that I remember so fondly: Ce Soir (including the calypso riffs in the second half of the track that began my love affair with that genre), Cash and Dylan, Nonsense, Candy Man etc. Must have seen him a dozen times or so, always a good night out with friends. He was a born entertainer, a bloody good musician, and a very warm person (he would come and chat with the guests during the breaks).

I'm very sad to hear he's passed away, though not entirely surprised about the circumstances. The world is definitely a better place for his contributions.

Scot was a close friend of mine, we meet in college at Cal State Long Beach in 1962. When he left the states he moved to UK. I would visit with him in the winter time and go to his Gigs. It was some of the best times we had together.
When he would visit the US we would get together.
Its nice to see so many people remember him.

Scot Thislethwaite was close friend in College and Disneyland.
Scot along with myself and Serge Orgranovich open Bar called Kahuna's Cave (formerly Bar Solarium) in Cala Mayor, Palma de Majorca (1965-67). Ray Boyd, VP of American Standard Europe funded our new venture or adventure. What a trip it was- I roomed with Scot at Villa Ballestor in Palm Nova. Scot was also with Disney Group "The Yachtsman" (1964). Names from the Majorca days included: Charles (Trinidad), Alexandria (Sweden, opened Club in Stockholm), Archie Petrosian, Nigel Woole, John Kennedy, Michael Caine (London), Sal Mineo, Anthony Quinn, Sloppy John, Derek, Jackie Lawrence (Villa del Sol) and Stuart (Indian bloke from London that monthly made us the best lamb and chicken curry in the world). We were on top of the world. I visited him twice in Amsterdam and paid him each time to return to USA! Much more wish more Majorca friends would respond- Lost track of most! What memories!

I first met Colin Scot at an 18 to 30 holiday in Morocco. Scot was the entertainer for the first week I was there. I think it was 1971.
I saw him perform in various folk clubs around the London area over the next couple of years. A friend of mine, Geoff Gilbertson booked him to be be the first act in a folk club he was starting in Codicote. Probably 1972. We also went to visit Martin [can't recall his last name] who wrote some of Scot's songs, including "You're Bound To Leave Me Now".
Colin Scot was a great entertainer in acoustic folk clubs.
I have his LP, the one with Hey Sandy.

Hi Betsy,

I've remembered the name, it was Martin Hall.
The place in Morocco was called Safari Village[I think!]
They had a different folk singer or group from the UK every week.
Jo Partridge was there too playing a lead guitar for CS. He was later to appear on the War Of The Worlds album.
I also have[somewhere hidden in the garage!] a couple of CS's later LPs, which I found disappointing.
He really was more of a "live" entertainer I think.
i remember he used to sing "You made me love you, I didn't want to do it, you woke me up to do it".

The Donald Duck impersonation at Disneyland was not alleged...it was real, I heard him do it many times. For some reason, I started a google search on "Bud and Scotty at Disneyland," and have found the info about Colin, of Bud and Scotty. I lived in San Diego and used to go to Disneyland once a month when I was a teenager with my friends from school -- during the 60's. And once we got through the front gates of the park, we'd race up Main Street to the Coke Corner to see Bud and Scotty...and to flirt and bat eyes with Scotty. I've always remembered him from those early years of mine, I had such a huge crush on him. When I found a blog saying that a Colin Scot had died, I wasn't sure if was him, but then I saw a comment from a Bud Hedrick who said he'd played with him at Disneyland as Bud and Scotty. I am so sorry -- and I had no idea that he'd had such a career after his time of working at Disneyland. He was a cutie...breaking hearts like hickory nuts, I'm sure. I am sorry to hear of his death and what sounds like a difficult life.

I had the pleasure of picking Scotty up from the airport when he came to Peewees for Christmas.On this occasion my girlfriend came with me, she was eight months pregnant, on the way back the baby started kicking, well Scotty had to feel and my daughter promptly kicked him. So he tickled the baby all the way back to Trowbridge! Being the gentleman that he was before he returned to Amsterdam he recorded several songs on a tape for the baby. My daughter became a mother herself a while back. We've dug the tape out for her daughter now.

Stumbled across this blog and was saddened to see that Scotty has passed on. I was in Palma in '67 and, and, like many others, stopped to spend some quality time with Scotty and friends. I remember well the curry dinners, Serge and others. It was an enchanting time made special by a supremely talented young man named Scotty Thiselethwaite. I have a few pictures and a recording, made in France, by a group called The What's New." What a voice! What a personality! And that 12-string guitar!I hope my friend lived life to the fullest!

I'm sorry to say that I never knew Colin Scott,'though I've read most of the Posts and by all accounts he was a greatly admired character.
I was searching for anyone who was staying at Safari Village, Club 18 - 30, near Asilah, Morocco during the last two weeks of June 1971.

Bye and Bye, I would appreciate any links to hear some of Colins' music.

Good wishes to all you Friends of Colin.

Hi Bob,

I was on holiday there for two weeks. Colin Scot was there the first week I was there.[with Jo Partridge]
When I got back to England I saw him in a few folk clubs around the London area. Never again with Jo Partridge.
I had my guitar there, but was not accomplished enough to sing in the bar area!
There was some guy there who could make up a little ditty on the spot around someone's name.
I also remember someone broke a leg or something on a trampoline, and had to go home early.
I think something in the water or food got me, and I was ill for a couple of weeks after I got home!
But it was great meeting Scot [as everyone called him]. Will never forget it.

I do have some links to his CDs.

Andrew

Hi again Andrew and thanks for your reply.

I remember the incident now you mention it. Also I believe a couple of folk got some extra Sun and they asked for volunteers to give up their seats in return for an extra weeks holiday.
Talking of being ill, I recall several had the runs after eating traditional snap, with their hands, at Tarzis' nightclub in Tangier.

A tune frequently played at the Disco became a favorite and I got a copy of it when I returned to the UK.
It was an instrumental, "Flash" by the Duke of Burlington.

Up until a couple of years ago I still had my address book into which several I met entered their details. I cannot find it now, though I don't s'pose it matters too much.

I think I'll put some material up on my blog and see if it attracts any interest. I guess as the years roll on I'd just be interested to hear how its gone for the others.

Talking again of Scot, if I could see some photos its possible I may remember him. almost 40 years ago - Lordy Lordy!
I'd be obliged for the links to his CDs if you'd be so kind.

All the best,

Bob

I did some research on Colin's recordings.
So here's a discography(?) of his (solo)work:

Albums:
1971         Colin Scot - United Artists LP         (reissued on CD)
1973         Just Another Clown - WarnerBros LP         
1974         Out of the Blue - WarnerBros LP

45's:        
1971         Hey! Sandy! / Nite People - United Artists 7"
1977         Mandolin Man / Boris - RCA 7" (this got close to being a radio hit in The Netherlands)

(Source: www.RateYourMusic.com
The site lists the songs as well)

ALSO: don't forget to get the live recording posted earlier on http://www.heekesen.nl/ > downloads.


Does anyone have additional details?
I'm particularly interested in live shows and Colin's recordings with others. (Mailto: Sporenboog@gmail.com)

Cheers,
Wim

I saw Colin Scot at the Roundhouse in about 1971 and never knew who he was until the other day when I was in touch with Harvey Andrews. His songs Hey Sandy and Nite People have been buzzing round my brain for all these years, but now I have downloaded the first album from I tunes and it has brought memories flooding back. He really had a great voice, and half the audience were singing along with him. My brother also thinks we saw him at Cecil Sharp House but I don't remember that.

Thanks for all these memories - A friend from California facebooked a Q asking do you remember .... So I googled and got this - We have fantastic memories of Scotty from the late 60's - Cambridge Folk Fest; Black Anna's jolly Butchers in Norwich, drinking gin & tonic with the University of East Anglia Vice Chancellor on a sunday afternoon - we found out the Thistlethwaite connection and just rang and invited ourselves - must e-mail all from the past to get them to contribute!!

Saw Colin many many times in many folk clubs and gigs around the Midlands, including one in Wolverhampton when about half a dozen turned up - he still payed a brilliant set.

Pretty sure more than once he made it clear E&C were his children

My enduring memory of Scotty was picking up the bar bill for his drinks consumption when I ran Exeter Uni Folk Club 1970-1973.He was the only guy I ever met who drank Gin and ( a little ) Tonic in pint glasses. He was always booked as the first act after Freshers Week and never failed to fill the Long Lounge to full capacity - circa 250. Buddy Holly medlies, Do the Dance Now Davey ( which I still sing regularly ), Analine , Hey Sandy, Mr Blue, Sans Chemise Sans Pantalon and so much else to remember him. We all know what we have gained and lost by his parting.

Paul Brazier of Brighton started a tribute website a few years back which has been stagnat for a long time - anyone know about Paul and whether he is OK ?

Also Martin Hall - poet from Birmingham who wrote Davey - anyone know his whereabouts ?? Happy to be contacted on joe2you2joe@hotmail.com

I met Martin Hall in London sometime in 1971 I think. A friend of mine chased him up after hearing Scot sing "Do The Dance Now Davey" and "You're Bound To Leave Me Now".
I had a tape of Colin Scot singing these[a home recording] and also "Mrs. Willis" and "She's So Pitiful".
No idea where the tape is now.
I mentioned earlier that I met Colin Scot first in Morocco in 1971.

I've no idea where Martin Hall is now.

I remember Colin from the Folk Fairport in Ansterdam, probably around 1974. Sad to hear he has passed on.
I remember Derek Brimstone from the UK in the 60s, but then, Nobody's as old as Derek Brimstone. Except perhaps me?

Yeah, I remember Colin Scott. Scotty and I were very good friends. I don't remember when or where we met but we were both living in London. I don't remember a lot of thinks trying to keep up with him.   At the time I had a 1961 Volvo and he and I traveled everywhere from Scotland to Italy at breakneck speed with the occasional case of Newky Brown(Newcastle) on the back seat and hash wafting through the car. Gig after gig he delivered a powerful infectious set. I loved to watch him lift audiences. His music and his tales made him a great entertain. I don't remember a bad gig. I miss him.
I also lived him and his lady for about a year in Amsterdam, Christine and her dog Boris the tekelhund - dachshund. The adventures continued there.

Martin Hall was a co-writer and good friend of his. He wrote a disparaging poem lambasting me for selling out to the world by accepting a gig (Polydor International in Hamburg) out of fear. And then honored by asking me to be godfather for his daughter, Alice. Love to hear from or about Martin and Jo Johns his enduring lady in London and a wonderful person.

Scotty and I just lost touch.

Patrick Small I remember Scottie from the 70s. He was a regular visitor to the Arts Centre Folk Club in Bristol. It was very sucessfully run by Pam Tobin and it featured a one man two girl trio known as White on Black as its resident entertainers. Whenever Scottie was booked you new you were in for a rare treat, and I can still see him on stage belting out 'Sandy' . I think his encores probably lasted longer than the set . The last memory I have of Scottie is picking him up in my battered ford 'pop' and transporting your man to the railway station . As his train began to move Scottie leaned out of the window and gave me a five pound note . For the petrol, he said . I told him I did'nt want it and gave it back 'Jesus Christ man said Scottie,take it and as the the train gathered speed he threw the note back again. That was my last memory of Scottie he and I throwing this fiver back and forth as the train gathered speed . Safe journey Scottie.
