DYLAN COVER # 166 Roger Chapman - It's all over now, Baby Blue x 2


Look out Rogers coming through!
ROGER CHAPMAN - Its all over now, Baby Blue (1996)

I have always been a Family man, what with 2 kids, dogs, parrots, newts, you have no choice. Seriously I have been a great fan of Roger Chapman's vocal gifts ever since I heard the fabulous album Entertainment (1969) by Family. Roger was of course their lead singer. One of my favourite Bands.

Hear are a couple of versions of It's all over now, Baby Blue by Roger. Both interesting especially the live take from the album The Loft tapes Vol 3 (2007). A bit of a jazzy feel. It is certainly not boring.

The other take is found on the album Kiss My Soul (1996) . As I say with that vocal talent, how can it be boring.

I don't know much about Roger Chapman, but both these takes have their merits. It's a pity about the 'stadium' drum sound on the studio recording, which I find a bit overwhelming, otherwise, two very enjoyable versions.
