In 1969, he turned professional and, the following year, released two singles (‘Here’s To You, Santa Claus’, ‘The Fat Girl Rag’) for RCA Records. Rogers released his self-titled debut album in 1971 before signing an abortive recording contract with Vanguard Records. Three further singles for PolyGram Records between 1973 and 1974 preceded a period of playing the coffee house circuit with his brother Garnet Rogers (violin/flute/vocals/guitar). His first independent album, Fogarty’s Cove, was released in 1976 on the short-lived Barn Swallow Records label. The follow-up was financed by Rogers’ mother and released on the singer’s own Fogarty’s Cove...
