The archived Stan Rogers interview was facinating, especially his comments about crossing the border as a Canadian performer and the difficulties therein...almost 30 years ago. Sad to reflect that it is so much harder to do the same today.

Some of the accompanying tracks were live. Did you record them at the Sounding Board concert that evening?

Hi, sorry not to check in before now. No, the live tracks were from the LP "Live -- Between the Breaks." I assume it's still available, now on CD.

And yes, it IS harder for foreign performers to bring us their gifts -- many of the rules seem to be Catch-22s, designed to discourage them or keep them from playing here.
