The Bottom Line Encore Collection: Harry Chapin

TnTTaylor1955

For those of you that didn't know. This concert was recorded just 2 weeks before he died in the accident. So this is actually his last live recording so enjoy. People always complain about live recordings of all types. I've learned to sit back and listen to the artist.

I Hate Live Recordings

JHossom

I love Harry's music, but in this album he's playing to the audience and not to the music. I just want to hear the music.

Great stuff

billymaci

I'd never heard of Harry Chapin until his name was mentioned in a documentary of Elektra records. I'm really impressed by this album, so much so that I bought a couple of his studio albums as well. They're good but this is better. Sounds like he was a great guy as well.

A Better Place

tpot55

This song is so poignant that it still brings tears to my eyes--even after all these years. Most of us only hope to leave that kind of lasting legacy.

An OK Live Recording

YojoaDon

This isn't near as good as his Greatest Stories Live album (1976?), which was my introduction to his music. The production quality in this one just isn't the best. Still, these are some of his best songs and there is the real sense of one of his live shows (which I was fortunate enough to see way back when).

Harry Chapin, God's gift

imwhitewolf

I saw Harry twice in concert. No big deal right? Ha God doesn't put people like Harry Chapin on this earth much. Harry, I stillove. Thanks for what you gave to mankind. I just wish there were more like you.

I remember when....

thatjimguy

I was fortunate enough to see Harry 5 times in concert. He wasn't just a great songwriter and artist, he was a great humanitarian. I remember bringing cans of food for the poor to most of the concerts. I remember the day he died. I was painting a double garage door in 110F heat, not 50 miles from Boston. I heard the tragic news, fittingly, in a sad kind of way, on the radio. I cried and went home. This compilation is great for many reasons, but two come to mind: (1) These are some of his greatest songs and (2) they are live versions which did not come from the Harry Chapin Live album. I miss you, Harry. Rest in peace.

hary lives

harpyrec

his music lives.theories about how or why he died are just that.like they found buddy hollys gun at the crash and naturally he was to have shot his pilot? i think harrys music can be misread..theres nothing tooo ofensive about him. he wasa just singing what most folksingers were singing about then.stop the wars and nonsense.its true. and he died sadly..on oine of the worst roads i have ever been on. thanks.live and love harry!

Miss Harry

JackKnows

"it sure musta been something...imagine 30,000 lbs.....of...mashed bananas" Oh how Harry's music made life good. I had tickets to his last show, the night of the morning he was killed. It would have been one of his best at the casino in Hampton beach, NH. I am one of those guys who fits into most of his music. I am glad there are others who know how much he did for all of us. I still believe the conspiracy theory on his death, he was getting too loud for the government about hunger.

One out of many

Harry was one of 4, maybe 5, singer song writers that have earned the Gold Congressional Medal of Honor for their music. Harry earned it for the best depiction of American Life. His music and charity that he established, World Hunger Year (WHY) lives on. I miss what his wonderful mind would create.
