News on Harry Chapin, Jimmy Buffett, Olsen Twins
Late singer/songwriter Harry Chapin will be the subject of an upcoming concert DVD, "Rockpalast Live," due Aug. 20 from Pioneer Entertainment. The show was taped in Germany in April 1977 and features such perennial favorites as "Cat's in the Cradle," "Taxi," " WOLD," and "Circle." The 96-minute video also includes the tracks "30,000 Pounds of Bananas," "I Wanna Learn a Love Song," "Shooting Star," "Dance Band on the Titanic," and "Odd Job Man," among others.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of "Rockpalast Live" will be donated to the Harry Chapin Foundation, which works to promote educational programs for disadvantaged individuals. Chapin died in a car accident on July 16, 1981, and was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Freedom for his charity work.
