Let Me Back Into Your Life (1986)

"Tom Chapin has an easy, appealing way with songs about emotional connection, grassroots protest, and personal commitment. Goodhearted, sixties-style folkiness is the mode here, with Chapinís lucid vocals riding high over spare, intelligent arrangements. Records this straightforward and unassuming tend to have a hard time finding their audience, particularly when released on independent labels. But Chapinís admirable modesty only underscores the talent and feeling evident on Let Me Back Into Your Life." Rolling Stone

"To the extent that he wasnít overshadowed by his late brother, Harry, Chapin has been largely categorized as a childrenís performer by virtue of such projects as his TV series Make A Wish and his LP Cabbage Patch Dreams. As a folksinger, though, he is at least his brotherís equal. Certainly his songs are less prone to melodrama than Harryís were, and this album shows that he knows what adult life is about, too. Chapinís instrumental backing is spare, notably Walt Michaelís hammer dulcimer and Eric Weisbergís (and Chapinís own) banjo. This is Ď60s style folkie stuff, modest and intimate, which is not to be confused with something old fashioned. Hearing a quiet singer such as Chapin sing a quiet romantic song such as Let Me Back Into Your Life is still one of the more serene pleasures of pop music." People Magazine
