    Tapestry Of Delights:

    Born in Leeds on 24th January 1941 Chapman was an important figure in the singer/songwriter phenomenon of the seventies. He'd originally worked as an art and photography teacher in Hull, but gave this up in 1967 to become a folkie. He soon secured a contract with EMI's new progressive Harvest label and recorded a series of albums which you need to check out if you're into this musical genre. In fact, their content wasn't entirely confined to solo folk singer material. Chapman pulled in a number of session musicians and acquaintances to assist on these albums including Rick Kemp who later played with Steeleye Span; Mick Ronson, who was later guitarist for David Bowie and drummers Richie Dharma and Keef Hartley. As a consequence many of these albums included guitar instrumentals and rock as opposed to folk material. After he signed to Decca his work veered further towards rock.

    Chapman never attained much more than a cult following over here but on the Continent, where he had a live album issued (in Germany), Pleasures Of The Street, he was much more popular.
