"On the heels of 2011s superb reissue by Light In The Attic of Michael Chapman's 1970 classic album Fully Qualified Survivor (LITA 060CD/LP) comes his 1969 debut Rainmaker (originally released on the seminal Harvest label). Like the FQS album, Rainmaker is a psychedelic-guitar-folk delight. The album kicks off with one of Chapman's best known songs 'It Didn't Work Out' -- which features a stellar cast of legendary English musicians of the era; Guitarist 'Clem' Clempson was in the prog-band Bakerloo (soon after playing with Chapman he'd join jazz-rockers Colosseum and then Humble Pie) Drummer Aynsley Dunbar (his resume includes John Mayall, Eric Burdon, David Bowie, Frank Zappa and Lou Reed), bassist Alex Dmochowski (long time Dunbar comrade) were both in Dunbar's Retaliation. Organ player Norman Haines was in Locomotive (another obscure, but legendary progressive English band of the day)." Includes 6 bonus tracks, plus a 28-page booklet with liner notes by Byron Coley.
