New Reviews: August 10, 1998
Peter Chipman is originally from the Canadian Maritimes and has had a career including five albums and ten singles. His new
CD For All Those Years is a collection of his greatest songs including the Roger Whittaker classic "The Last Farewell," and the standard "You Light Up My Life." Peter and his rich baritone
have been entertaining all over at clubs, lounges, and special events for many years, both in Canada and beyond, but Peter is especially known for his involvement with the Variety Club, an organization
that deals with special needs children. Chipman now lives on the Canadain West Coast, and one dollar from every sale of the CD will be donated to the British Columbia Variety Club.
The Henchmen reveals Peter Chipman's folk roots. A very popular folk music band at the University of New Brunswick in the 60's, the four piece band
performed traditional folk songs and original compositions, many of which with a distinctive Maritimes flavor. The Henchmen Reunion contains 26 songs and is a true collector's item -- you can hear the scratching and popping of the original vinyl, adding a certain nostalgic element ot the recording.
Two dollars from the sale of each CD will be donated by Capcan Music, the distribution company for which Chipman now works, to the University of New Brunswick.
