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.
