Virtuoso guitarist and critically-acclaimed
songwriter, championed by John Peel and later Charles Shaar Murray,
Michael Chapman recorded a quartet of classic LPs for EMI's progressive
Harvest label during the 1970s. Chapman's extensive touring fast won him
a passionate following, evidenced on this until-now unreleased live set.
Recorded at Nottingham's Playhouse Theatre on July 23rd 1977 by Chapman
and a power house rhythm section in Lindisfarne bassist Rod Clements and
former John Mayall drummer Keef Hartley, it includes some of his
best-loved songs in “And There Were Three” (MSMCD151) - a jocular
reference to Chapman's ever-shrinking band, described nonetheless by
notes writer Marc Higgins as ‘a beast with three heads'

1. In The Valley

4. The Hero Returns
