"A Portrait Gallery," declares the back cover of this 1975 Harry Chapin album, "should be filled with those we know, those we would like to know, and those we should not ignore." This last clause explains "Bummer," a song about a Vietnam vet that is quite reminiscent of Chapin's "Sniper" from early in his career. In many regards this is a most usual Chapin album: the strident string section on "The Rock," the children's choir in "Someone Keeps Calling My Name," and the tongue-in-check self-criticism of "Stop Singing These Sad Song." Overall there is more orchestration on this album than you usually find with Chapin, probably the influence of producer Paul Leka. This was a period when he sung as much about the trials and tribulations of married couples ("Dreams Go By," "Tangled Up Puppet," and "Dirt Gets Under the Fingernails") as well as fantasies about past encounters ("Babysitter"). There is also a lovely song about his wife "Sandy," and one of his better songs about being a troubadour ("Star Tripper"). As I listen to this album again I would say that none of the tracks qualify as really great Harry Chapin songs, but by the same token I would not consider any of them to be below average efforts. After listening to this one you might give Chapin's 1978 "Living Room Suite" a try, since they tackle such similar themes.

I LOVE THEM ALL & THIS IS MY FAVORITE! 22 Dec. 1999
By yah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THIS IS MY FAVORITE Harry Chapin Album. Way back when, I had all of his LP's and I wore them all out. ~ I know all the stories by heart. ~ At first glance, I thought I would choose the boxed set, but, alas, it did not include "Sandy," his shameless love song written to his beautiful wife, Sandy Chapin. ~ Along with "Tangled Up Puppet" and "Dreams Go By," this album illustrates to me Harry the Family Man, the REAL Harry. ~ Harry was my Hero and "my first" Sensitve Man. I was blessed to see Harry twice in concert. I waited in line afterward both times while he signed endless autographs, and promoted his passion to "End World Hunger." ~ Many years later, I now have my own Sensitive Man and our two beautiful children who inspire me, along with Harry, to strive to make THIS world "A Better Place to Be."

Wow! What a collection 14 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What an incredible, varied mix of wonderful story-songs from the master. 'Sandy' and 'Stop Singing Those Sad Songs' are fairly weak and unmemorable, but those aside, this album is art. 'Bummer' is the portrait of an abused infant who focuses his rage to become an unwilling war hero. Raw and absolutely awesome. 'The Rock' can be enjoyed by people of all ages... a song where only a small boy can see the threat against his town, while the majestrates ignore him as a dramatic child. 'Dirt Gets Under the Fingernails' is a light-hearted and joyous look at a couple who make their dreams come true. 'Dreams Go By' is a wonderful, light tale, of a couple who spend their life together making plans only to realize that most of them never did come true, but their life was great anyway. 'Tangled Up Puppet', one of my personal favorites... if you have a child of your own, I dare you to sing along without your voice cracking at the wistfulness of watching your treasured child come into their own. This is one of the more overlooked Chapin albums, but it should be required listening by students of all art forms.

chapins most unusual song collection. 11 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THIS IS A COLLECTION OF SONGS THAT IS VERY UNUSUAL AND PERHAPS ONE OF CHAPINS LEAST HEARD ALBUMS. FROM BEAUTIFUL SONGS LIKE "SANDY" TO THE VERY CAPTIVATING "BUMMER" THESE SONGS AND THAT CHAPIN VOICE WILL KEEP YOU ENTRANCED. AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR ANY TRUE CHAPIN FAN.

Awesome album art 16 Jun. 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't know if anyone's noticed this yet, but if you turn the cover 90 degrees to the left you will see the "portrait" is of Harry. All the songs are good, but my favorite is "Dreams Go By."

One of his best 30 Jan. 2006
By Hampton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Got into Harry because of my parents and I could not thank them more for it. His music reminds me of my childhood and I could listen to this one anytime of the day and enjoy it.

Some of his best songs are on this one: Dreams Go By, The Rock, Bummer, and Tangled Up Puppet.
