Essential Listening: Harry Chapin – Bottom Line Archive Series: Live 1981 (3CD)

Bottom Line Archive Series: Live 1981 (3CD)

For this expanded re-mastered edition, they've given you the original set, as released in 1998, PLUS an additional, previously unreleased 88-minute show. To demarcate the second show, they've started with the club s pre-show room ambience exactly what you would have heard sitting in the audience, moments before the band took the stage. It s another riveting performance and as always, the band gives their impeccable all. Harry s voice may show some wear n tear by the time they come around to Circle , but it only adds to this vivid snapshot of an incredible artist who, having given his all, shows that there s still something there left to give.
