[Milestone Treat: The Michael Chapman Birthday Celebration] – Deal Gone Done


18 Ene 2011, 17:48

Deal Gone Done is the first album in a trilogy that was later compiled into a triple cd collection called Dogs Got More Sense: The Decca Years (Bonus Dvd). This box set reissues three Decca albums – Deal Gone Done,Savage Amusement and The Man Who Hated Mornings and also includes a 55 minutes DVD with a 2005 Michael Chapman interview about his career. This box set is a must have, for Chapman fans and for newbies, and tells the story of the electric Chapman period. It is also sold for a ridicules price, and worth every dime.

Most of the guitar tracks are solo or overdubbed, but lacks the long solos the appeared in his previous albums, so this is more Chapman, short and sweet. Even the front cover had a picture of Chapman and the title writing, nothing flashy, like this album.
The albums opens with The Rocknroll Jigley, a jigs and reels tune. I personally don’t like JnR, but who asked me anyway. Dave Leeke quoted Charles Shaar Murray from NME, who commented on this album that “This album was evidence for Chapman as Britian’s JJ Cale“. This is somewhat true, I agree.
