Thread Name: In Memory: Stan Rogers (1949-1983)
Subject: RE: In Memory: Stan Rogers
I heard the announcement at the Clearwater Festival, the best place and the worst place to hear it. Stan had played Clearwater a year or two before, and then we'd heard him close up and personal at Spencertown, NY (a few miles from my house) and bought all four albums (that's all there were then, LPs) on the spot. Still have 'em.

I never saw him in person again after that, but bought all the albums religiously, since upgraded to CDs. I sing his songs to myself and my family a lot.
