Stan Rogers' music is a wonderful find for anyone who enjoys traditional folk. His music is lovely to listen to, acoustic & thoughtful and lots of sea ballads. You can't go wrong with any of his albums. On this album I especially enjoy Cape St. Mary's, Three Fishers, and Cliffs of Baccalieu. His voice is deep and resonant and any of his albums make a lovely listen. Stan was a treasure among Canadian folk singers and the world is the less for his absence since his untimely death.

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.
