(Light in the Attic)

“Deluxe remastering of the Yorkshire guitarist’s career-defining 1970 album.” Written by Andrew Male for Mojo


Michael Chapman “Fully Qualified Survivor” NOW AVAILABLE!

Marking our 60th release on Light In The Attic, we give you the 1970 Brittish psych/folk/rock classic–Michael Chapman’s Fully Qualified Survivor! This reissue marks the first time Fully Qualified Survivor has ever appeared on CD in the US and the first vinyl reissue in decades. And speaking of the vinyl and CD, they both get the usual deluxe treatment. Housed in a stunning silver foil digipak, the CD also includes a booklet with archival photos and liner notes by Mick Hougton (Uncut). The vinyl got plenty of love too–sporting a deluxe gatefold old school “tip-on” sleeve holding a delicious slab of 180 gram vinyl and including a booklet with the same liner notes and photos as the CD.

The guitar and voice of Michael Chapman first became known on the British Folk Circuit in 1967. Playing a blend of atmospheric and autobiographical material, he established a reputation for intensity and innovation. Signed to EMI’s Harvest label he recorded a quartet of classic albums. LPs like Rainmaker and Wrecked Again defined the melancholic observer role Michael was to make his own, mixing intricate guitar instrumentals with a full band sound.
