Halos was the name of his first band in the early/mid 60's - while still at school. In the 70's he was in a band called Dog Eat Dog for a couple of years, then spent a bit of time in Shug Barr's Allstars, and he has even worked with locals, Mafia. He is though probably best known for his involvement with the Electric Ceilidh Band who started up around 1980 and went on to become well established recording artists.
Re-winding back to the 70's, however, Jim Wilkie actually recorded an album under his own name called "The Waxer", featuring a large bunch of Scottish musicians, including members of 70's pop outfit Cado Belle.
The LP was released in 1979
