|Harry Chapin chronology|
The Last Protest Singer is a posthumously produced album by the American singer/songwriter Harry Chapin, released in 1988. Produced only in cassette and CD formats, Harry Chapin had been working on the album when he died in 1981. Up to 18 songs were on the master tape to a greater or lesser extent. 11 of these were far enough advanced to create this album.
The track listing on the Dunhill issue differs from that on the more recent Chapin Productions CD version, with Dunhill uniquely having 'Anthem'/'A Quiet Little Love Affair' and the Chapin Productions CD having 'Oh Man'.
