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.
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!
P.S. "The Witch of the Westmareland" led me to Archie Fisher who I stupidly didn't realize at first was one of the Fisher Family. I have a CD version of an LP that the Fisher Family recorded in the 1960s. My favorite song on that album was "Joy of My Heart." Finding Archie's solo recordings through this Stan Rogers album brought me Archie's own version of "Joy of My Heart." Yay!
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.
