Michael Chapman

Virtuoso guitarist and critically acclaimed songwriter, championed by John Peel and later Charles Shaar Murray, Michael Chapman recorded a quartet of highly regarded albums for EMI's progressive Harvest label.

In this latest archive recordings release, he presides over previously unreleased tracks spanning folk rock, blues, jazz and experimental genres - ranging from a live solo
performance in 1969 to studio collaboration with Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) in 2005, by way of a 1980's TV film soundtrack with Maddy Prior and Rick Kemp (Steeleye Span)and much more besides.

With an extensive booklet of Chapman's reminiscences illustrated with pictures from his own collection, 'Growing Pains 3' is another highly personal ‘take' on the rich and varied career of one of British music's most
individualistic craftsmen.
