5.0 out of 5 stars If you missed him, catch him now! 9 Aug 2010
By Gandalf
Verified Purchase
I knew a few of the tracks even though Chapin only ever had 1 UK hit - W.O.L.D.in 1974 - a favourite at the time of DJ's who may have seen something of their own lifestyle in the song. Why 'Taxi' + 'I Wanna Learn A Love Song' + 'Cats In The Cradle' didn't chart I'll never know, and until I checked would've bet money they had, but they're just a few of the wonderful songs found on these albums.
I obviously missed a great talent and am very pleased to have caught up with this collection. I play these albums a great deal now.
Chapin died aged 38 in 1981 in an horrific car crash after a possible heart attack on the way to a concert, and in the UK never seemed to be granted 'legend' status - a great injustice.
If you like clever lyrics, catchy tunes, unusual themes, you really should invest in this set. You won't be disappointed.

Very very few artists produce original albums with 13 #1 hits on it Harry is no different. There are one or two duds that won't make my mp3 player - but there are lots of diamonds in here too. Possibly the greatest act most people never heard about. Treat yourself

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Album Series Harry Chapin 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Harry Chapin was my favourite artist when I was at University in the early 1970's. His songs were unique in the way that they told a story worth hearing and the production was unusual in having a cello as part of a simple folk group. I bought 3 of these albums as vinyl when originally released and, over the years, have been able to get some of the albums as CD and also the excellent double CD "Gold Medal Collection" I decided to buy this collection because it included the CD "Short Stories" which I had never been able to purchase on CD. This was my favourite of his vinyl albums that I possess and some of the tracks had never been on his compilation albums. This series is at an excellent price and gives the opportunity of being able to revisit the old vinyl collection which you never play now. At this price, I cannot give this collection anything less than 5 stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Chapin 19 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
This collection brings together five of the best studio albums recorded by Chapin. Listening to the quality of the music, we are reminded what a sad loss his death was at such a young age. Many of the tracks tell a story with the words an music linked in a way that brings out the full emotion of the lyrics. As with most albums of that era there are a few tracks of lesser quality seeded among some excellent recordings. Overall, well worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must. 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
If you are like me and have Albums of this great Singer Song Writer on LP's, then it's time to listen to all your old favorites right here on CD, in this amazing original 5 CD set. And if, like me, you have always been a fan of His, then there is no need to go into detail, because you already know just how great this Man was, and how sadly missed He is.

Chapin is not really widely known in the UK. Despite being INTO US singer-songwriters in the early 70s the only track of his I know at all is W.O.L.D. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry at his best
Harry Chapin is undoubtedly the greatest story teller of all pop-lyricists, and his premature death was a great loss to the song writers fraternity.
