Chapin Trivia/Rockpalast DVD Give-Away!

September 30, 2002

October 4, 2002 UPDATE: All DVDs have been given away! Thanks for testing your Chapin trivia knowledge! The questions remain up, but new answers are not being accepted.

We have generously been provided with some copies of the Harry Chapin: Rockpalast Live DVD.

So, let's give 'em away! The authors of the first four responses I receive (via the form below) with the correct answers to the following Chapin trivia questions will receive a copy of the DVD. (Note: I am the judge of the order in which e-mails were received, and the judge of what's "correct" in terms of the answers to the questions.)

Answers to all questions can be found on this Web site! So, give it a shot!


E-Mail Address:

1. In which of the following charitable organizations was Harry Chapin significantly involved?

2. Which Harry Chapin song features a politician that wins office as the result of a campaign that stood for "peace," "brotherhood," and "prosperity?"

3. What organization sponsors a "Harry Chapin Circle of Friends" where fans can donate money to support the organization while creating an online tribute to Harry?

4. Who performed "Remember When the Music" at the 1987 Carnegie Hall Tribute to Harry Chapin?

5. And for something a bit more challenging ... What other well-known musician served with Harry Chapin on the Presidential Commission on World Hunger?

Good luck! Winners (and only winners) will be notified by e-mail. I will post the winner's names and the correct answers on the message board.

The Latest Release

Sniper & Other Love Songs


In 1972, Harry released Sniper & Other Love Songs. Thirty years would pass before the album would ever reach the CD format. Sniper was finally re-released in June, 2002.

Originally given a working title of Sweet City Suite, the album tells the story of various characters one might run into in a city. The album features the original studio versions of Chapin classics "A Better Place to Be" and "Circle." But perhaps more importantly (as those songs are already well-distributed on compilation CDs), the album features seemingly lost Chapin stories, including "And the Baby Never Cries," "Burning Herself," "Barefoot Boy," and "Woman Child."

Sniper is for the seasoned Chapin fan. New fans would do better to check out Greatest Stories Live. But for Chapin fans who have reached the level of the Dance Band on the Titanic album, this is the next step. Slightly over-produced and having a little of the "forced" feel that some of Harry's studio albums possess, this album does not capture the powerfully live Harry Chapin. Nonetheless, it captures Harry's great iconoclastic songwriting--Harry takes the story song to new heights here. But the album works best for those ready for it; don't buy it until you are ready to appreciate it!
