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.

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.

Reading the previous reviewer's comments, I was glad to see Stan Rogers' "Mary Ellen Carter" means as much to someone else as it does to my son, Bill, and me. We sung it together at the top of our lungs while hiking the mountains outside Tuscon AZ, when Bill was 12. I went into the house and played it and the rest of Stan's music--weeping bitterly--after learning of his death a year or so later. I put the initials "MEC" on my business cards and letterhead under the drawing of a ship when I was downsized by ITT in 1985, and started my own business. I listened to it through headphones while taking dialysis treatments for 8 months before a kidney transplant in 1992. And Bill played it just before he left for Parris Island to become a Marine in 1997.
We both still listen to it. Somehow Bill's mother--my wife of 33 years--has never really grasped the significance of that song to us. Guess it's a guy thing!
Thank you, Stan. Rest in peace. Semper Fi!

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.

you will love Stan Rogers. His music runs along the lines of 'The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald'. Beautiful and haunting folk songs mostly about the hard life of sailors (The Flowers of Bermuda and Rolling Down to Old Maui). This CD has a unigue track on it - "The White Collar Hollar" - which is a modern 'blues' rant by computer programmers from the time of punch cards. I love it. Also, Harris and the Mare is a great tragic song about a peaceful man who's wife is attacked in a bar and none of his friends came to his aid when the attacker pulled a knife on him. I can't come up with the words to express it's eloquence.

No one who saw Stan Rogers perform will forget the sight of this huge man from the great north singing songs of the sea and of Canada. I saw him several times, including one enchanted summer eve in 1982 at Penn's Landing in Philly, singing "Mary Ellen Carter" while tall ships glided silently up and down the Delaware, showing only their running lights. At the time, not having heard him before, I was astounded that so many in the capacity crowd not only knew the songs but sang along with the chorus. Hear this album and learn why. I never met the man personally, but I was pained when he and many others died in an Air Canada fire (there's a reason why smoking is forbidden in airplane lavatories). IMHO, one of the best live albums, of any genre, ever recorded.

In a welcome break from the sometimes-over-produced studio albums, Stan and his buddies (brother Garnet, David Alan Eadie, Grit Laskin, and Curly Boy Stubbs) crank out simple renditions of Stan's more famous tunes. There are better versions of some of the tracks elsewhere (for example, "Barrett's Privateers" and "The Mary Ellen Carter" are better on the "Home in Halifax" album).
Standouts are the heartbreaking "First Christmas," the dated but still hilarious "White Collar Holler" (seen in filksinging collections and tossed around on Internet humor mailing lists), and the definitive version of "Harris and the Mare."
Stan calls "Delivery Delayed" ". . . in many ways, one of the best songs I've ever written." Sorry, I don't think so. It's a good thing the rest of the album is better.
After years of listening to crappy tape recordings from a friend's LPs, I'm delighted to have found the real deal on CD. Worth every penny.
