Harry Chapin - Soundstage

For me, the greatest storyteller in music, Harry's live performances were supposed to be amazing, with the bootlegs that I have bearing this out. He's written some of the most amazing story songs and always played his music with such passion. His live album 'Greatest Stories Live' is one of my most-played albums of all time dating back a number of years.

He left a hell of a good legacy behind him and this performance is a good start. It's a recording for Soundstage from back in 1974. All these songs are magnificent, pay special attention to 'Sniper' and the pure emotion that Harry puts into the song.
