Originally released on United Artists in 1971, "Colin Scot" has never before been available on CD. The Eclectic Discs re-mastered reissue includes 4 previously unreleased bonus tracks.
On this forgotten gem, Colin Scot was joined by an unbelievable array of talented friends including Robert Fripp, Peter Gabriel, Rick Wakeman, Peter Hammill, Jon Anderson, Phil Collins and Davey Johnstone.
Some on the UK folk scene felt that the presence of such musical heavyweights on the album clouded the essential beauty and simplicity of the songs, but others disagreed, marvelling at the sheer weight of talent lining up to help out, with financial reward low on their list of priorities.
As Rick Wakeman says: He was a great songwriter and allowed the musicians freedom to add colour to his work, something I know all of us who had the pleasure of working with him enjoyed.
One of U.K.´s talented singer/songwriters
