Product Description:

Recorded in 1982.
Recording information: Grant Avenue Studio, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (11/1982).
Arrangers: Garnet Rogers; Stan Rogers.
This album was originally released on the Folk Tradition label in 1983, shortly before Rogers' tragic death in an airplane crash; it was reissued on CD by the small but very cool Gadfly label in 1996. Rogers had a deep, rich singing voice and an amazing melodic talent; his original songs are of legendary quality. But this album consists of songs by other writers and a few traditional numbers from his native Canada, many of them remembered from his childhood. Accompanied by his brother Garnet on fiddle and bassist Jim Morison, Rogers performs several tunes by his uncle Lee Bushell, including the amusing "Strings and Dory Plug," a Calgary cowboy song "Two-Bit Cayuse," and, most affectingly of all, the aching "Cape St. Mary's" and the 19th century Scots song "Scarborough Settler's Lament." ~ Rick Anderson
