Blue Season An album of Michael Chapman classic songs with vocals by Verite Alexandra, guitars by Michael Chapman and backing from Alex Warnes. Verite who also sang on Michaels 90s album Navigation possesses a powerful voice which adds another layer songs that are both familiar and new. Highly recommended are their versions of Memphis in Winter, That Time Of Night and Hell To Pay. The guitar parts are pure Chapman the vocals and new arrangements make these best songs you'll know but have never heard

Buy Alexandra / Chapman / Warnes, Blue Season

Wrytree Drift named after the mine (now closed) halfway down the drive to the Chapman's farm. The same workings that inspired Michaels song Prospector from 1979. Michael alternates between electric and acoustic guitars with plenty of 'hows he doing that' moments. The music shifts and drifts from folk ballads to languid dub, dark electric blues and solo guitar work outs. Opens with a wonderful observational song 'Another Song'. A classic Chapman track in the making. The album showcases a studio version of So Young recorded on Michaels live album with Alamo Leal, a dark revist of Soulfull Lady, a great take on Mose Allison's Parchman Farm (inspiring the sleeve photo of Michael captured as if in a deep south jail breaking rocks) and a beautiful acoustic folk rock version of Blue Season from Life On The Ceiling. Elements of the experimental music from Sweet Powder, the playing on Time Past and Time Passing and the textures of Plaindealer combine to make a highly recommended listen.

Buy Wrytree Drift

And Then There Were Three recorded live in Nottingham in July 1977. This is literally an electric trio recording. Michael on Electric Guitar, Rod Clements Bass and Keef Hartley a much anticipated release by a stunning live band at the top of their game (In The Valley, Party Pieces, Kodak Ghosts, Hero Returns, Among The Trees, Dogs Got More Sense, How Can A Poor Man, Sea Of Wine, It Didnt Work Out, Time Is Tight)

Sweet Powder recorded at Phoenix Studios Michaels preferred studios. Alex Warnes musician, producer and owner of the studios adds a richly textured contempory production to much of the album. The sound is still obviously Michael Chapman, guitars, electric and acoustic abound, but it nods to RL Burnside, narly Neil Young and modern Steve Earle. A mix of reimagined classic Chapman material, covers of Chapman favourites and new Chapman material. A stunning listen. Highly Recommended

The Wedding Band Michael Chapman playing a funky electric with Roy Whyke and Jeff Betsworth (Drums and Pedal Steel) from his Americana and Plaindealer albums with Dave Lewis on Bass recorded live straight to DAT so digital all the way at The Maze in Nottingham Autumn 2006. Great live album for those who like their Chapman electric.

Words Fail Me invigorated from a set of dates playing the acid folk and improvised music circuit in USA with The No Neck Blues Band and Jack Rose Michael recorded this double cd set in his local studios.

This is 100 minutes of solo guitar no overdubs, no guitar choirs or the tapping rythmn foot. Playing antique Gibsons, a resonator and occasion strat, Michael roars through two sets of material re-arranged for solo guitar. Michael breathes new life and vigor into old material and new pieces alike. The revisits to Sunday Morning and PK 1944 from Rainmaker sound both contempory and timeless.

Words Fail Me Information

'Live At The White Swan'

This is an excellent live performance from April 2001 recorded onto DAT, pressed and mastered by those nice people at Fairview where Michael recorded during the 70s. The White Swan sees Michael in a duo setting with Alamo Leal on second guitar. Part of the sale price of this cd goes to support Andu Chapman's ongoing fund raising for Cancer Research UK 'I have been involved in fundraising for 10 years now.During that time I have been all over the globe for ten different challenges, from solo dog sledding in the Arctic Circle to treking in the blistering heat of the oldest desert the Namib. This vital research should be funded by Government, but they fall well short, so its up to individuals to help however they can. AC 2005.

It helps that this is also an excellent live set, well recorded onto this small run of cds. The set includes Looking For Charlie, Soulful Lady, It Aint So, Anniversary, La Madrugada, Memphis In Winter, So Young. The last track is so far unrecorded and unavailable elsewhere. The set was briefly avavailable as a double cd with full sets from Michael and Alamo and a duo set, less than 50 copies were made and these were auctioned for charity. This cd comprises of the duo recordings of Michaels material in a new full colour sleeve

Through the 80s Michael Chapman had explored different aspects to and indeed of his music. 1981 saw his solo guitar album Almost Alone, 1983 saw a duo live album Original Owners with Rick Kemp. 1986 saw Heartbeat a critically acclaimed instrumental album with Rick Kemp, Richie Close and Steven Harrison. In 1990 Michael went into a studios in Wales to record a new album again with Rick, Richie and Steven. The recording sessions spanned 3 months (if you know Michael you'll know thats unusual). An stalemate around final details occurred and the album remained unreleased and lost until now.

This is a professionally produced CD from a copy of the final mix he found recently in a guitarcase. The album is a cracker.

All Day All Night, Geordies Down The Road (sampled precussive sounds from hitting bits of rayburn some violent electric guitar build a real foundry atmosphere, coupled with a welsh choir to make this unlike the more languid version that appeared two years later on Still Making Rain and indeed quite unlike anything Michael has ever done. Falling From Grace with a beautiful electric guitar part, The North Will Rise, Navigation excellent version with some amazing keyboard textures and a stunning guitar solo from Michael. Bon Ton Roolay my favourite version with a wonderful piano part from Richie Close Old Times, The Wind Has Changed, Elinkine, Fool In The Night again excellent electric solo from Michael

OK so many of the tracks were re-recorded for Still Making Rain or Navigation, but here is Michael's last band album until The Twisted Road at the end of the 1990s.
