Sniper and Other Love Songs is Harry Chapin's second album. The cassette is actually quite rare as many of the original copies were destroyed in a warehouse fire. This album was released on CD by Wounded Bird Records in 2002. The working title for this album was Sweet City Suite. Harry wanted this album to be a double album but the Elektra pushed back making it a single album. This album, with eight previously unreleased tracks, was also rereleased in 2004 as part of a double CD release Heads and Tales and Sniper and Other Love Songs.
