More than any other popular songwriter in recent memory, Harry Chapin was a storyteller. He celebrated the extraordinary lives of ordinary folk, and whether through comedy or pathos, reminded us of a shared emotional heritage. Here, the most inherently theatrical of Chapin's narrative pieces have been assembled, allowing the stories within them to dictate their own dramatic shape.
