AllMusic Review by

Harry Chapin celebrated his 2000th performance in January 1981 by performing three nights at the Bottom Line, performing a song cycle that began with "Taxi" and ended with "Sequel." Over the course of two discs, The Bottom Line Encore Collection reconstructs that original set list, which features such staples as "Story of a Life," "Old Folkie," "Remember When the Music" and "Cat's in the Cradle." This series of concerts would turn out to be some of Chapin's last performances -- he died six months afterward, in July -- which makes the collection a valuable addition to the libraries of devoted collectors.
