This review is from: Fuzz to Folk: Trax of My Life (Paperback)
What a lucky find this book was. It dredged up a load of memories.

I worked for this guy's dad at Craiglockhart in the 1970s and he was a real character. He spoke a strong northern lingo and being a city boy it took a while before I figured out what he was instructing me to do. This led to several farcical misunderstandings! He was missing a thumb. I forget which hand.

Ian's writing style is straight from the hip and he doesn't hold back - as I imagine he was as a copper. We could do with more of them around now. Great stories of flying about the streets on bicycles, on foot and in dodgy panda cars after the "neds"!

Some of his narrative is very personal stuff which makes for uncomfortable reading at times.

What I liked was his obvious pride in his achievements along with a ready acknowledgement of his faults. I was sorry that the one type of music Ian doesn't dig is Jazz. I'm sure he'll master it eventually!
