You are correct on the Jim White observation.
My ex-manager of the same name wouldn’t have recognised the genius of Mr Laudrop.
On the other point, I assume you mean the mention Dougie received on Growing Up Too Fast?
This was to do with the song “Burning Down” which closes the album and was written about the Jacobite rebellion of 1745.
I wanted the track to fade out to the sound of a live crowd singing “Flower of Scotland” and Dougie Donnelly obliged by sending us the tape of Jim Watt’s World Championship fight at Ibrox, 1980.
I think you’ll agree he did a Sterling job.
(Ach, look what you made me say!)
