Stan Rogers ~ For the Family

his album (Rogers' last studio recordings) was originally released on the Folk Tradition label in 1983, shortly before Rogers' tragic death in an airplane crash. 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. The result is this classic release. Accompanied by his brother Garnet on fiddle and bassist Jim Morison, Rogers performs several tunes by his uncle Lee Bushell, including the amusing iStrings and Dory Plugi, a Calgary cowboy song iTwo-Bit Cayusei, and, most affectingly of all, the aching iCape St. Mary'si and the 19th century Scots song iScarborough Settler's Lamenti. The CD includes lyrics and extensive liner notes, including some from Garnet Rogers.
