Chapman, Michael - Fully Qualified Survivor Fully Qualified Survivor
Pop New - LP SW 816 Harvest
Sealed 1970 Original, Clean COH. “After The Critical Acclaim Michael Chapman Received For Rainmaker In 1969, He Followed Up Quickly In Early 1970 With Fully Qualified Survivor, A Record More Adventurous And Haunting Than Its Predecessor, With Added Production Flourishes And Equally Strong Songs. Fully Qualified Survivor Is The Album That Established Chapman As A Folk Troubadour. Leaving The Guitar Pyrotechnics Largely Locked In A Shed, Chapman Concentrated Instead On His Songwriting Skills, And The Sacrifice Paid Off. Leaving The Lead Guitar Credits To A Fellow Hull-Man, Mick Ronson (Who Got His Gig With David Bowie As A Result Of His Playing On This Album), With Rick Kemp Making A Return As Bassist And Barry Morgan On Drums, Chapman Relied On No Less Than Paul Buckmaster -- Then Beginning To Work With Elton John, Among Others -- To Employ And Arrange A Small String Section To Fill Out The Songs. It Paid Off, Netting Him His Only Chart Hit, "Postcards Of Scarborough." However, The Disc's Opener, "Aviator," Is The Song That Best Embodies The Spirit Of The Songwriter And Album Better Than Anything Else On It. Aviator Begins With A Lilting Violin Entwined Around A Cello And A Strummed Guitar. Chapman Intones His Lyrics As A World-Weary Traveler Who Has Come To The End Of His Days And Looks Back On The Things He Has Seen, Loved, And Lost. The Song Has No Refrain, And Is Sung Like A Poem, With Stunning Violin Fills Swooping And Sweeping All Over The Place, And With The Cello And Kemp's Bass Playing Counterpoint To One Another In A Melancholic Melody Full Of Pathos And Verve. The Album Digs Deep Into Emotional Territory By Way Of Tight, Almost Suffocating Songwriting And Killer Arrangements, Making This One Of The Defining Brit Folk-Rock Albums Of The Period. It Holds Up Well In The 21st Century As A True Testament To The Excellence Of Chapman's Craft.”... more details
