Between 1969-1971, UK's
Harvest Records released four groundbreaking albums by singer/
songwriter/guitarist Michael Chapman that blended pastoral acoustic folk
with baroque psychedelica. Window is the final release in our ongoing
series reissuing Chapman's seminal Harvest work on vinyl and CD.
Whereas Fully Qualified Survivor and Wrecked Again featured lush
orchestrations and soft-rock production flourishes, Window is a more
stripped-down affair showcasing what Chapman does best-wicked guitar
picking and emotive vocals. That said, some of the trademark Chapman
additions are still there: Steeleye Span bassist Rick Kemp, drummer
Ritchie Dharma (from Lou Reed's Transformer band) and P. Harold Fatt,
the guitarist from "Formerly Fat Harry"-once again, seminal producer Gus
Dudgeon is at the controls. Originally released in December 1970, this
is a release for the mind, ass, and soul.
