ROGER CHAPMAN shot to fame as lead singer/songwriter with FAMILY in the late 60’s/early 70’s notching up TOP 10 Hit Singles and chart albums.

Celebrating his 60th birthday back in 2002 he performed to a sold out audience at Opera House, Newcastle, England covering his burgeoning back catalogue.

The performance cemented his reputation and standing as one of the UK’s greatest ‘rock vocalists’

Supported by his band SHORT LIST he trawled his enormously popular catalogue and performs ‘classic rock’ sung and played the ‘Chappo’ way.

Reviews

As the years went, the singer's voice mellowed and became richer, and though his bite remained in place, now Chappo acts like a strange, if adorable, uncle...

This was a good time to catch Leicester's finest with the first half of the show capturing his immaculate covers of Chuck Berry's Downbound Train and Bob Dylan's Blind Willie McTell.

There is also a real nugget with his version of the little-known 18 Wheels And A Crowbar by hot country band BR-549. His band, The Short List, also get a chance to show a few licks themselves on the Mickey Jupp song of the same name.

Chapman showcases the Family songs he wrote with Charlie Whitney, including Weaver's Answer, In My Own Time and the peerless Burlesque.

All in all this is a fabulous live recording...if you're new to the man and want to hear what a seasoned rock veteran who gets better with age sounds like, then check this one out

Ryan Sparks, www.classicrockrevisited.com (May 2009)


All the songs are well recorded as Chapman performs his own, and Family's, favourites to an enthusiastic audience...

Classic Rock Society (June 2009)


Chapman has 40 years worth of experience, he loves the stage, the crowd loves him, his band are smoking hot and this is a must for any real rock fan...

Amplifier (September 2009)


The CD features some excellent tracks which show a change in direction from (his) Purple days. The music is more jazz rock and funky...
