Info for Fogarty's Cove (Remastered)

Stan Rogers starb 1983, er wurde Opfer eines tragischen Flugzeugbrandes in Cincinnati, Ohio. Er hinterließ uns ein unglaubliches Erbe im Songformat. "Fogarty's Cove" war sein erstes Album in voller Länge, dass auch von ihm selbst aufgenommen wurde. Inspiriert und genährt wurde das Album von seinen Wurzeln, die in Atlantic Canada lagen. Obwohl er in Ontario aufgewachsen ist, blieb er seinen Wurzeln, die in der Ostküste lagen, immer treu. Man spürt die starke Verbindung zwischen ihm und der Ostküste an der Namensgebung der Orte wieder: 'till I come to Wild Rose Chance again down' in Fogarty's Cove oder an seiner Missachtung gegenüber Ontario: 'your scummy lakes and city of Toronto don't do a damn thing for me I'd rather live by the sea.'

Forgarty's Cove ist das erste von fünf Stan Rogers Alben die vom Produzenten Paul Mills re-mastered wurden; Mills war auch der Produzent der ursprünglichen Alben. Die Ergebnisse sprechen für sich! Und Kollegen äußerten sich wie folgt über Stan Rogers:

"One of the most talented singers and songwriters in North America." (Pete Seeger)

"Stan Rogers was to Canada what Woody Guthrie was to the United States." (Tom Paxton)

"An extraordinary talent." (Peter Yarrow)

"A dozen songs of and about Nova Scotia, mostly about the sea and all but one written by Rogers. They successfully capture not only a people but their sense of time and beauty, with the Rogers baritone tastefully and effectively moving through the spaces and ages of his subject, and with traditional acoustic backing (guitar, violin, flute, etc.)" (Bruce Eder, AMG)

Stan Rogers
A child of Maritime stock on both sides of his family, Stan Rogers was born in Hamilton, Ont. on November 29, 1949. He grew to be a big man-six feet four-built like a fire truck, and possessed of a voice that rumbled from his toes. He could bluff and bellow yet was at heart a poet and intellect who would, often as not, sneak away from a gathering to curl up with a book. He made friends and enemies easily, gaining the former for life and often, in time, converting the latter.

He became a songwriter too, working as a rock bassist while still a teenager and later embracing the folk idiom. After a few years as a more-or-less conventional folkie songwriter, he discovered his real gift. After some persuasion by his Aunt June in Canso Nova Scotia, he began to write songs about his familial home…his roots. Those early songs found their way on to Stan’s first album, Fogarty’s Cove, and he was on his way. From that point forward, Stan’s best writing was about the Canadian experience. His songs gave a new voice to ordinary folks who worked the fisheries, mines and farms of this vast country.

Stan was a passionate Canadian partisan, and much of his short creative life was taken up with song cycles that chronicled the East, the Plains, the West and finally the Great Lakes and Ontario. It was a natural progression for a wanderer…to scan a continent and finally return to write of the wonders of home. He was always on the road pursuing his dream of establishing a national identity for Canadian songwriting. It was a dream fulfilled; through his constant soaring, dynamic performances, and brilliant songs, he was known throughout most of the English-speaking folk music world.

Stan died in a fire on Air Canada flight 797 at Cincinnati, Ohio airport on June 2nd, 1983. He was returning from a folk festival in Kerrville, Texas. Memorials and honours were numerous in the months that followed and in May, 1984 he was posthumously awarded the Diplôme d’Honneur by the Canadian Conference of the Arts.

His music continues to amaze, amuse and inspire people from all walks of life. It has appeared in several poetry anthologies, been used in films, plays and musicals, and has been referred to as “one of the touchstones of modern Canadian history.” (Emily Friedman)
