GUEST,Jim McLean Glasgow Eskimos (35) RE: Glasgow Eskimos 25 Jul 02


I've just posted a lot of information for Susanne on the Ding Dong Dollar thread. Let me assure you that Matt McGinn was never involved until much later neither was Jimmy Ross. The picture was taken aboard the ferry going to Dunoon from Glasgow for a demo. George McIntyre was an old friend of mine who actually took me to the folk club at the Trongate in 1959 and bears the resposibility (blame) of me writing folk songs. Anybody got an address for him as I've lost touch. Gordon McCulloch who, I believe, was responsible for the Glesga Eskimo show/video? was also not involved at the beginning. We (Josh MacRae, Nigel Denver, Jack O'Connor)all used to meet in Morris Blythman's house, as Ewan McVicar quite rightly knows, and write and play and drink GlenGrant malt whisky! Archie and Rae Fisher (great singers) would be there sometimes but were never involved in polital songs. Jim Mclean
