Harry Chapin : Story Book : The Elektra Albums 6CD Box Set Review

Harry Chapin : Story Book : The Elektra Albums Review
Cherry Red Records

This is a wonderful box set and I was surprised how many songs I already knew. Cat’s In The Cradle is a song I only knew from the Ugly Kid Joe version, here the original is a revelation and I really enjoyed it, ( especially the version from the live album). Taxi is of course a masterpiece in musical story telling. Highly Recommended. Phil
