Parmi les magnifiques rééditions du label Light In The Attic, on retrouve l'album des débuts de MICHAEL CHAPMAN "Rainmaker". Cet opus paru en 1969 est un délice de guitare folk psychédélique et débute avec l'un des meilleurs morceaux jamais joué par l'artiste It Didn't Work Out. Le style de MICHAEL CHAPMAN est à la croisée des chemins entre JOHN MARTYN et BERT JANSCH. Cette réédition fera le bonheur de tous les amateurs de musique folk.

Mainly recorded in October 1968, "Rainmaker" was only to be released in July 1969, due to delays concerning other releases from the same label, the much cherished EMI's Harvest records. Michael then recorded a few more tracks in 1969 to be included on the album, two of them making their way into the tracklist - "It Didn't Work Out" and "Not So Much A Garden-More Like A Maze". Produced by Gus Dudgeon, it originally featured eleven excellent Chapman originals, now augmented to seventeen. Six top-quality bonus tracks have been added which have all been culled from the album sessions, save for a great outtake called "On My Way Again" which belongs to the "Window" sessions, Michael's third album for Harvest from late 1970. There's also an earlier version of "Among The Trees" that's arguably nicer than the one that would appear on the aforementioned "Window" album. Why it was left off the original album can only be classified as a mystery as it portrays Michael at his very best.
More intense than "Fully Qualified Survivor", "Rainmaker" does rely on the same recipe of interspersed sung and instrumental tracks though, in a very interesting mix of acoustic and electric guitars and bass with Chapman's impossibly addictive free-flowing - and quite possibly stoned - voice. The album opens with the rocking "It Didn't Work Out", then followed by the title track - one of three great acoustic instrumentals which still sound really fresh while showing Michael's undisputed skills. One can tell by the different tunings he used, and their eastern tinges, that he was coming from that same group of highly-talented British guitar players, such as Bert Jansch and Jimmy Page.
"Rainmaker" also lets it show more of how important Bob Dylan's influence was to Michael. Third song "You Say" is a reworking of Dylan's 1962 "Girl From The North Country" while a few other tracks, such as "No Song To Sing" and the beautiful closer "Goodbye To Monday Night", carry an undeniable Dylan feel to his voice, which is great if you ask me. Songs like "No-One Left To Care" and "Not So Much A Garden-More Like A Maze" are epic in scope and do stand out.
Again, as with the Light In The Attic edition of "Fully Qualified Survivor", it's a digipak and comes with a chunky 28-page booklet which is very informative and carefully executed throughout. In all, while possibly not as fulfilled as "Fully Qualified Survivor", "Rainmaker" does stand side by side with it due to its sheer spontaneity and power.
