Michael Chapman - The Best Of Michael Chapman (1969-1971) download mp3 album
The best of Michael Chapman's years on the Harvest label is a glorious thing. Apart from the best-known songs, like "Kodak Ghosts" and "Postcards of Scarborough," there are a couple of tracks from the ultra-rare Window album, plenty of tasty Mick Ronson guitar work (he left Chapman to join Bowie), and some wonderful bass work from Rick Kemp. The star, though, is the "old blues guy from Yorkshire" himself, who wasn't so old when he recorded these tracks, although he displays a voice much older and weary than his years.

Michael Chapman may just have done that with this spellbinding album. Promising early embers of mainstream success - much-feted early albums such as Rainmaker (1969) and Fully Qualified Survivor (1970), almost becoming Elton John's guitar hero in residence during his hit making pomp - gradually cooled into a life deep in the musical margins. Approximately half of the cuts on 50 are reworkings of tunes that made their debut on albums released on miniscule labels for even smaller amounts of fanfare during the 90's. Chapman's intricate yet muscular acoustic guitar, honed into a truly potent weapon during countless solo gigs, is parked at the center of the aural picture, the imposing and immovable lodestar the rest of the musicians navigate their contributions around.
