CD Reviews

Stan was a Hero twice
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1983 my cheif officer on the S/S Marine Electric survived for hours in the water, after the ship sank, durning a blizzard waiting rescue. He kept himself awake by singing Stan's Mary Ellen Carter. The cheif, Bob Cusick, got me hooked on the songs. I thank Stan for saving Bob. When I stand on the bridgewing of my ship and the wind is so high that no one can hear me, I sing Stan's songs. I would never think of going to sea without him. His maritime songs are so true to the sprit of the mariner."
Still the Best Introduction to Rogers' Music
Mark K. Mcdonough | Reston, VA USA | 07/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the Stan Rogers album I heard first, back before his death, and all things considered, I think this incredibly spirited live set is still the best introduction to Rogers' music. Included are the definitive versions of "Barrett's Privateers" and "Mary Ellen Carter," the haunting "First Christmas" (ever a contender as the saddest song ever written), and the thought-provoking lament "Harris and the Mare." And that's not all... The songs on this album represent Rogers' songwriting talent at full flower and the band is snapping with energy. My only complaint -- gee I wish they'd used a better vocal mic. It's not awful, but fairly typical of the late 70s."
Stan Rogers Own Living Memorial
Mark K. Mcdonough | 07/03/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I drove my wife crazy playing The Mary Ellen Carter over and over again back in the '80s. I'm so pleased that Rogers' albums found their way to CD and can be enjoyed by future generations. His big sweet voice is unique as is the musicianship on this album. Listen to the riffs between the verses. One of the guitarists is Grit Laskin whose career is resurfacing and none to soon. This album should be in the nucleus of anyone's folk music collection along with Joan Baez's early recordings, the original Guthrie Folksay (not Folkways), early Josh White, Cisco Huston, and Logan English's interpretations of Guthrie. This one is deservedly a classic."
