I first heard of Stan Rogers whilst watching the last episode of Due South. The song playing was "Northwest Passage". However, the song wasn't on either of the Due South soundtracks, so I ended up getting the "Northwest Passage" album. And boy was it worth it.
In my opinion, the best song on the album is Northwest Passage - a sweeping ode to the explorers who traversed the oceans.
This is closely follwed by "Canol Road" - a song with immensely cool lyrics, and a funky little guitar riff. Basically it's a glimpse into the life of one man as he travels up to the Yukon.
The rest of the songs are pretty good too, but it's the lyrics more than anything that make the album so incredible.

I can't speak more highly of this album then to say that it touched the very depths of my soul. Just thinking about some of the lyrics brings a tear to my eye. Rogers brings the lives of ordinary Canadians to life with his vivid words and haunting tunes. His voice is like none I've heard before and never will hear again. If you've not heard this album I urge you to buy it. You won't regret it.

I came across the track Northwest Passage on BBC radio 4's Something Understood programme late one Sunday night and was immediately struck by the simple power of it. This album contains a number of similarly powerful tracks although by no means all of them measure up to that standard (IMHO). Still one well worth having in the collection - another genuine talent taken too soon.

This is one of the great folk assemblages for me, mixing all the required elements of warmth, humour, pain, history, striking accompaniment and Stan Rogers rich voice.

Stan Roger is described as a folk singer song writer. The only real folk song on the CD is Northwest Passage. The rest vary from country to middle of the road. Most are not up to much. Apart from "Northwest Passage", which is great, the only other two I would bother listening to again are "The Field behind the Plow" and "Lies". Fairly usual for a lot of singer song writers, one good song plus load of duds. Northwest Passage is the only a cappella song on the CD and is slightly marred by one of the chorus singers, who does a very passable impression of the late Peter Bellamy of Young Tradition fame. A very distinctive voice which grates against Stan Roger's rich smooth tones. Stan Rogers has a great voice which is rather wasted on a lot of these songs. If you want to hear him at his best listen to him singing Dark Eyed Molly by Archie Fisher available on one of his other cds.
