A newly remastered five CD clamshell boxed set featuring the legendary Roger Chapman, including the classic albums 'Chappo', 'Live In Hamburg', and 'Mail Order' with an additional 25 bonus tracks drawn from studio out-takes and live recordings. Roger Chapman first came to public attention as the vocalist with the legendary British band Family who recorded a series of acclaimed albums between 1968 and 1973. With Family, Chapman gained a reputation as a fine and unique vocalist. This reputation was enhanced further through a series of albums and live performances with the band Streetwalkers which Chapman formed with ex-Family guitarist John "Charlie" Whitney in 1974. Upon the demise of Streetwalkers, Roger embarked on a solo career which continues to this day. His first solo album, 'Chappo', was released in 1979 and gained critical acclaim in the UK and brought Roger considerable commercial success in Germany, where he would continue to enjoy popularity over the ensuing decades. His legendary live album 'Live In Hamburg' (his first with his band The Shortlist) saw Chapman build on this popularity, which was enhanced still further by his next studio album 'Mail Order Magic'. This five CD boxed set has been newly remastered and gathers these three albums along with a further 25 bonus tracks over an additional two CDs. The bonus material includes a stunning previously unreleased live set recorded for BBC Radio's In Concert programme in October 1979, studio out-takes and further live recordings made in Hamburg in January 1981. The set also includes an illustrated booklet with new essay and exclusive interviews
