Short Stories of Harry Chapin

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 11 May 1974

SHORT STORIES is the most apt title for Harry Chapin's new album, for Chapin is not so much a singer as a storyteller, an artist who deals in words as much as melodies and repeat verses. Chapin has, in fact, created a little category for himself over the past two years. A 'Harry Chapin' song speaks for itself.
