Trixie's Recap, and Stan Rogers on YouTube

Mike Dorn's show on Friday was a nice trip down memory lane (which is not to discount his newer songs). There were so many people there I knew, much more than usually turn out for any one show, and I had a hard time figuring out which group to sit with. At the very end, he asked me and jjfmi to come up and sing harmonies on "Suburban Man" with him, which capped the night very nicely.

Mike Anton's show on Saturday was a little lower key except for the part where I played a whole set between his two sets. My set turned out well; I was real happy about it—no major goofs and I seemed to be connecting with the audience, which was mostly people I didn't know. Mike's sets were fine, too; I enjoyed them a lot.

The Ott Lake Rambler has sent me a couple of great videos on YouTube lately. One is a clip from a documentary on Stan Rogers that aired in Canada some time ago called One Warm Line. The clip the Rambler sent was a different version of "The Mary Ellen Carter" than what appeared on the Home in Halifax CD (Garnet doesn't play fiddle on this one, which I kind of missed). Now, what's been going through my head is another clip from the film, which is what actually supplied the title for it, "Northwest Passage." It's just the chorus, but wow. Now I have another DVD to add to my want list.

I bought "Northwest Passage" on cassette quite a number of years ago. Just a fantastic album. One of my favorites for sure.

I have that on casette too... unfortunately I hardly ever play cassettes, but I can and should. I'll go dig that one up tonight to play it. I'm getting a few of those songs going through my head today.
