Album Review

This generous collection of concert performances has been eagerly awaited by Stan Rogers' devoted cult following, and it will be especially welcomed by those who never got to see the legendary Canadian folk singer in person before his untimely death in 1983. The majority of the songs are originals, most of them dealing with themes of family, friendship, and life in the Maritime provinces of Canada; the seafaring plaint "Take It from Day to Day" and the aching "Love Letter" are typical, both in their tone and in the sophisticated simplicity of the writing. There are a few traditional numbers as well, most notably a superb and moving rendition of "Leave Her, Johnny, Leave Her" recorded at a benefit concert in Chicago, on which all of the other performers contribute harmonies on the chorus. Other performances feature Rogers alone with his own guitar, or, more frequently, accompanied by his brother Garnet and two or three other musicians. The sound quality is generally quite good, but even where the source tapes are in less than ideal condition, the musical quality more than makes up for the subpar sound.

Listening to Stan Roger's easy, clear, rich voice is so bittersweet: a blessing that we have the body of work he left us with; the sad reality that this remarkable voice was stilled before his promise would be fulfilled.

Biography

Born: 1949 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Years Active: '70s, '80s

With his rich voice, he used his music to call to life all of the wonder and mysticism of his native Canada. His singing was occasionally mistaken for that of Gordon Lightfoot, but it was huskier and earthier than Lightfoot's, and his repertoire -- made up of song cycles drawn from throughout Canada -- was also more tradition-oriented...
