I was at that concert hosted by Patrick Watson. I think the introduction included the info that Stan and his crew had made a hole in their American tour. I also clearly remember Stan asking for another chance after he'd muffed the lyrics again… I believe by that time he'd won the sympathy of the audience, and as an already-convinced fan I was doing my best to stir up applause for his efforts. Years later when I noticed that concert was to be rebroadcast, I was ready with the videotape to capture it. The song by Stan et al. was more blurred and fuzzy, as if people had been re-playing the video, perhaps to dub it.

Also during that Christmas concert Stan was singing the baritone part in a group performance of Good King Wenceslas. Unfortunately the soprano missed a note, and probably for that reason this excellent vocal track by Stan didn't make it to air. I was wishing that the CBC would get the soprano to reprise her role and insert the correct note, as would have been done by old-fashioned splicing of magnetic tape (remember those days? X-acto and magic tape on the back side). But it was not to be. I hope that somewhere this lovely version of the traditional carol featuring Stan might exist. Hope it was not just discarded 'on the cutting-room floor'...

For some reason "Logging Camp Christmas" is playing in my head… any chance this song might turn up again on CKCU? (Not sure whose song that is -- Alex Sinclair's?
