Orig­i­nally re­leased in 1973 as a mu­sic track from singer-song­writer Harry Chapin’s Short Sto­ries al­bum, Mr. Tan­ner tells the tale of a mid­west­ern dry cleaner with a pas­sion for singing. Adding art­work to lyrics, Bryan Langdo’s cud­dly ren­di­tion of Mr. Tan­ner as a bari­tone bear gives the bit­ter­sweet story-song a fan­ci­ful twist when he trav­els to a New York City con­cert hall but doesn’t get quite the re­cep­tion he was hop­ing for, in this soul­ful jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery.
