Album Review

This is yet another Harry Chapin anthology, which, like the others, is a fine representation of his career. All the hits are here, "Taxi," "Cat's in the Cradle," "W.O.L.D.," "Mr. Tanner," and the like, which are detailed well in the liner notes. This set may be a better choice for the casual fan as opposed to Story of a Life: The Harry Chapin Box Set, as it is more concise. There are also some interesting snipets taken from various interviews and events, which offer a window into Chapin's strong ideals and also his sense of humor.

Harry Chapin, The Gold Medal Collection

It's not too often that you can put together a collection of song & speech from a master story teller.

I was lucky enough to shake hands with Mr. Chapin at a concert in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the late 1970's.
Also bought his "Cheap Seats" T-shirt.
Wish it still fit!
This collection will for a long time.


Born: December 7, 1942 in New York, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s

Harry Chapin's career as a popular singer/songwriter was cut short by an auto accident in 1981, yet he left behind a series of recordings that his fans continue to treasure decades after his death.

Critics accused him of over-sentimentalizing his subjects and attaching heavy-handed morals to his socially aware story-songs; the heavily orchestrated arrangements that accompanied many of his songs didn't help his case with the critics, either....
