Nothingville Music and Mellowtone Records Presents...
Michael Chapman first became known on the London and Cornish folk circuits in mid-1966. Playing a blend of atmospheric and autobiographical material he established a reputation for intensity and innovation. While living in Hull, East Yorkshire, in late 1969, he signed to EMI's Harvest label & recorded a quartet of classic albums. LPs like ’Fully Qualified Survivor,’ 'Rainmaker' , ‘Window’ and 'Wrecked Again' defined the melancholic observer role Michael was to make his own, mixing intricate guitar instrumentals with a full band sound.
