The best of Michael Chapman's years on the Harvest label is a glorious thing. Apart from the best-known songs, like "Kodak Ghosts" and "Postcards of Scarborough," there are a couple of tracks from the ultra-rare Window album, plenty of tasty Mick Ronson guitar work (he left Chapman to join Bowie), and some wonderful bass work from Rick Kemp. The star, though, is the "old blues guy from Yorkshire" himself, who wasn't so old when he recorded these tracks, although he displays a voice much older and weary than his years.

A return to the gloriously ragged kineticism of Rainmaker (1969), Fully Qualified Survivor (1970), Wrecked Again (1971), and Savage Amusement (1976), Michael’s first American record -an elusive goal for decades-embodies his undeniable late career masterpiece. The album includes both radical reinterpretations of obscure material from Michael’s catalog as well as three new compositions: Sometimes You Just Drive, Money Trouble, and Rosh Pina. Michael Chapman sets a very high bar lyrically-he is the best. Something to aspire to. – Kayla Cohen, Itasca.

Extraordinarily, over a nearly 50-year recording career featuring guitar work infused with all manner of American jazz, blues and ragtime influences, Michael Chapman had never before recorded an American album – a situation rectified here with a combo of younger devotees attracted by his burgeoning reputation as a surviving master guitarist to rival John Fahey.

Michael Chapman may just have done that with this spellbinding album. Promising early embers of mainstream success - much-feted early albums such as Rainmaker (1969) and Fully Qualified Survivor (1970), almost becoming Elton John's guitar hero in residence during his hit making pomp - gradually cooled into a life deep in the musical margins. Approximately half of the cuts on 50 are reworkings of tunes that made their debut on albums released on miniscule labels for even smaller amounts of fanfare during the 90's. Chapman's intricate yet muscular acoustic guitar, honed into a truly potent weapon during countless solo gigs, is parked at the center of the aural picture, the imposing and immovable lodestar the rest of the musicians navigate their contributions around.
