Michael Chapman "BBC Sessions 69-75"

This collection of BBC performances by British singer/songwriter and guitarist Michael Chapman is one of the more rewarding titles in the series. These sessions mark the period of Chapman's earliest creative peak as both a performer and recording artist and cover the period of some of his most compelling outings, with Rainmaker, Fully Qualified Survivor, Lady on the Rocks, and Pleasures of the Street among them. Chapman's voice and guitaristry were on a par with John Martyn's, and in many ways he was more innovative. These live sessions offer an intimate and telling view of the depth and breadth of his gifts. Recommended. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
