"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."ÿ"
Wow! What a collection

"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."
One of his best

"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."
