He also links to his first review of "Fogarty's Cove" from 1977.

Paul Mills and I were working in his studio on my band's latest CD (Conklin Ceili Band, The Cannonsburg Sessions) when we took a break from the mix down process for lunch. Paul indicated that he was working on remastering these old recordings and would I like to hear the results. Not being unfamiliar with this process and my friend Paul's work, I knew I would hear a much clearer recording. Well, file that statement in the "ultimate example of understatement" file. As a musician I was knocked out by how I could hear and understand the interplay between these incredibly talented artists. I am such a huge (literally and figuratively) admirer of Canadian music, and especially Stan's work that I did not expect I could be as surprised as I was. I'm telling you, if you haven't heard these remastered recordings, you haven't heard these marvelous artists at their best. Paul Mills is a wizard applying his immense skills to works that he originally recorded for a man he loved like a brother. The results make these must-have recordings.

Couple of more points. Mike Regenstrief is universally respected in the folk community for his knowledge of our folk music. It pleases me no end to hear his view that Stan was and is Canada's greatest folk musician. I concur completely, with all due respect to Gord and the many wonderful artists I have met and been influenced by over the years. But Stan got it when it came to my Canadian cousins. He understood and embodied their tie to the sod they stand upon, and the historic struggles they faced to create that wonderful society. He didn't gloss over the problems and I have often wondered what his musical take would have been on some of the shenanigans since his death. But he was Canadian through and through.

I was also so pleased to hear Mike mention two of my absolute favorite songs. It surprising to Paul to hear that Fishermens Wharf is my favorite Stan song. But The Rawdon Hills ranks right up there as well.

Great review, Mike. Wonderful work, Paul.

All the best,

Mick

I'm with you and Mike on Stan being the greatest. But someone took issue with that on the blog

Stan was good, no doubt. Nice to see his music being "continued".

I was looking for Stan Rogers lyrics a few weeks ago, and I couldn't find the Website. It had been operated by the Rogers family. It's back up now - http://stanrogers.net/

Five of Stan's albums have been remastered, produced by Paul Mills of Borealis Records:
  • Fogarty's Cove: Stan's debut album of songs inspired by Nova Scotia, includes classics like 45 Years, Giant, and Make & Break Harbour.
  • Turnaround: A mix of roots & contemporary styles, including tracks Jeannie C., So Blue, Song of the Candle, and cover of Archie Fisher's classic Dark-Eyed Molly.
  • Between the Breaks... Live!: Includes high-energy songs like Barrett's Privateers and Mary Ellen Carter as well as poignant ballads like Harris & the Mare and First Christmas.
  • Northwest Passage: The prairies and north are represented here with Field Behind the Plough, Canol Road, and the title track, which is regarded by many as Canada's "other" national anthem.
  • From Fresh Water: Stan explores the area and history of Ontario and the Great Lakes region with songs like White Squall, Macdonnel on the Heights, and the powerful Lockkeeper.
There's also a 2010 "Greatest Hits" compilation: The Very Best of Stan Rogers

The Website has some other recordings available, apparently through Stan's Fogarty's Cove Music:
  • Home in Halifax
  • Poetic Justice
  • From Coffeehouse To Concert Hall
  • A Matter of Heart (cast recording)

The lyrics to Stan's songs are a bit hard to find, they they're on the Website - go the "The Music/Song Archive

It's good to see this Website back, and the albums reissued.

A couple of months ago at a local Rotary Club fundraising book sale I was lucky enough to find the Stan Rogers songbook. The sum total for all the books I bought was $10 and I bought more than ten books, so it was a very good price.

I wonder why "For the Family" isn't listed on the website.
