statement ring review Very Best Stan Rogers
From my perspective, the only way to get the best of Stan Rogers is to start with his first album and keep buying until you own them all. There are many gems that you won't hear on this single CD.
But if you're not that familiar with Stan's music and want to get an idea of what you've missed, this CD has a great selection. If I were to put together a list of my favorite Stan Rogers songs, it would look very similar to the track listing for this CD. You can't go wrong here.
And after you've fallen in love with the songs on this CD and want to know where to go next, start with his live stuff: "Between the Breaks" and "Home in Halifax". Both give you a feel for how much fun he was in person.
I was fortunate to have seen Stan in concert in a small venue three times before his untimely death. Since then, his brother, friend, and band mate Garnet has entered into a solo career. After you've listened to all of Stan's music and want something more, pick up some of Garnet's CD's - especially the early ones.
These are two of my favorite songwriters, singers, musicians - ever.
