Music today celebrates the loss of that man from Leeds, Michael Chapman, who died Friday aged 80. He was a singer, songwriter, guitar player, and had a very distinctive voice. I saw him in a small venue in the middle of nowhere in Cornwall a few years ago. I have more than ten of his albums and often wondered how he wasn’t better known based on his skills, his distinctive voice with people with a penchant for Bert Jansch as singer and guitarist and Jimmy Page as acoustic player. He was one of those musicians that other artists knew well and it says it all that although he does have a Wikipedia page, none of his great albums do. RIP Mike.
