"How Marshall Chapman has escape major stardom is one of the music industries many mysteries. With a career as a singer and widely recorded songwriter going back more than 20 years, she should be placed with Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams as a great female pop/folk/blues/rock individualists.Working with her fine band (The Love Slaves, their prior release live in a women's prision "It's About Time" is a sterling live set) she ranges from playful ("Don't Mind Me," "Love Slave") "sadder-but-wiser" ("Better To Let Her Go" "If I Can't Have You") to rageful ("Gun's Are Us"). Songs such as "Leaving Lochapoka" deserve to be considered with Lucinda Williams' best, a best story etched with heartache and insight.If you don't know Marshall but find anything intriguing in these comments - get the CD! She is a wonderful artist and I don't think you'll regret it."
Someone Get Her Back Into A Studio

"It's ashamed that the current revival in roots music hasn't brought this fantastic artist's music to light. She has labored in relative obscurity since the early 70's, when she became a fixture on the Nashville scence as a French major at Vanderbuilt, the so-called "Harvard of the South." She comes from wealthy and socially prominent family from Spartanburg County South Carolina. She's worked with Conway Twitty, Emmylou, Billy Joe Shaver and John Hiatt. Chapman has had a long working association with Jimmy Buffet, as a sometime singer in the Coral Reefer Band and has co-writter of a handful of Buffet's songs. Marshall's smokey vocals and earthy song lyrics bear a resembalance to Lucinda Williams, but Marshall Chapman's involvement in burgeoning Nashville outlaw music scene predates Lucinda's emergence in Austin by at least five years. Marshall has recorded sporadically over the past 25 years and her seven year absence from recording since she recorded this excellent album, "Love Slave", has been the longest period she's been away from a studio in her career. She is sorely missed and I hope someone can coax her into a studio again because she deserves to be heard. Her 1978 album "Jaded Virgin" and her raucous live 1995 prison album, "It's About Time" are the most sought after items in her catalog but "Love Slave" is a comparable album in quality."
Like a good wine , Marshall just gets better with age.
