a tribute, not Stan singing
I haven't purchased this, although I may some day. I was introduced to the music of Stan Rogers during a Maritimes vacation in 2006. What a talented writer, singer and Canadian! I became obsessed with his music, purchased Home in Halifax, and downloaded everything else that I could find. Nothing of his was available on iTunes in 2006. I am excited to see that his music is now available through iTunes. I have listened to these samples and they are NOT sung by Stan. But these are great songs and the samples sound good. I wonder what's the story behind this collection?
Nice to have a different interpretation, but...
I have been a Stan Rogers fan for over twenty-five years. A new iPod Classic got me to explore the iTunes store. I was delighted to find all my Stan Rogers favorites available, even though I have them on CD. This album, however, was new to me. I've downloaded it and will continue to play it. That said, it just isn't *Stan Rogers*. :( There is simply nothing like his husky baritone with acoustic accompaniment to convey the emotions of the common man and woman.
It pleases me that his music inspired a musical review and I hope others will also continue to receive inspiration from him, but there really is nothing like the original master.
I won't say "Don't buy this album.", but don't expect the same emotional rush and catharsis that a Stan Rogers recording will provide.
Do not make the mistake I did...listen to the preview
As someone who enjoys Stan Roger's music I find this tribute album overwrought and grating to my ear.
