Manfred Mann's Earth Band
Great Britain
 
 
Glorified magnified progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! Following soon after the release of the debut album, Glorified Magnified introduced the now familiar Earth Band logo on the cover. The listener was this time treated to a series of heavy rock tracks with lots of guitar and keyboard solos mixed with some more wistful moments and another nice Dylan cover "It's All Over Now Baby Blue".

Angel station progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! After a longish wait, the new Earth Band featuring Chris Thompson, Manfred Mann, Pat King, Geoff Britten and guitarist/vocalist Steve Waller launched another of the great Earth Band albums. Again the whole album is really good but outstanding tracks include "Don't Kill It Carol" penned by Mike Heron and Dylan's "You Angel You".

Chance progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! Often looked upon as a kind of Manfred Mann solo album, although featuring Earth Band stalwarts Thompson, Waller and even Rogers as well as drummer John Lingwood who had toured with the band following the "Angel Station" album in place of Geoff Britten, this album also tried out many other musicians and vocalists. Despite the variety of singers and players it holds together well as an album. Perhaps the outstanding tracks are "Lies Through the 80s" and Springsteen's "For You".

Nightingales & bombers progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! Includes a famous recording from World War 2 of nightingales singing as bombers pass overhead. This was to be the last album by the first line-up, although one of the high points was the interplay between Manfred on keyboards and Mick's guitar. It also contained the first Springsteen cover, "Spirits In The Night".

Manfred Mann's Earth Band progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! The first album by Manfred's new outfit made up of Chris Slade (Drums), Colin Pattenden (Bass) and Mick Rogers (Lead Guitar/Vocals). Manfred plays various keyboards including for the first time the keyboard that was to become his trademark, the Mini Moog. The album, first released on the Philips label, includes the single "Living Without You", a minor US hit written by Randy Newman, the Dylan song "Mrs Henry" and "Rocker's Prayer" and "Capt Bobby Stout". The musical direction of the new band had, however, not been fully established making this a very interesting album overall.

Mann alive (2CD) progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! 'Mann Alive' was a very difficult album for me to concentrate on. Everything was already on tape and there simply wasn't enough for me to do, it just had to sound good and in some cases that wasn't easy. If you're wondering why two versions of 'Redemption Song' appear on this album, thats because at the start of the European Tour Chris would sing alone and then as time went on I thought it would be a good idea for Noel to join in. We couldn't choose between them. I didn't really enjoy mixing the album but I genuinely do enjoy listening to it. I hope you will as well. Manfred Mann

Plains music progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! This album is called Plains Music, as it consist mainly of the melodies of the North American plains indians. We do not pretend that it is in any sense representative of the original ethnic music which was its which was its source material. I tried to make a simple album of plain music, using as few notes as possible and keeping the tracks short and to the point.

Watch progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! Ask any Earth Band fan and they will tell you this album is a classic and so it is. Highlights are difficult to pick out on such a great rock record but "California", "Davy's On The Road Again" and "Martha's Madman" are all wonderful examples of Earth Band at its best. The album also features a reworking of Manfred's 1968 hit "The Mighty Quinn" written, of course, by Bob Dylan.

Messin' pop rock

Enlarge this picture! The third album came much closer to capturing the band's live sound, particularly on the Mike Hugg title track and Manfred's "Buddha". First released on the Vertigo label in the UK, a slightly different album was released by Warner Bros in the States called "Rocks Off".

The good Earth progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! Recently the subject of renewed interest, this is the album with which buyers got a free square foot of land on a Welsh hillside. It also carried on the environmental issue first raised on the track "Messin'" 18 months earlier. A number of fans recently revisited the hillside, still unspoiled and free from the man-made forest that surrounds it.

Solar fire progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! Still considered by many followers to be one of the best Earth Band albums, this was the first to be issued on the Bronze label. Following on from the hit single "Joybringer", based on "Jupiter" from Holst's "Planet Suite", the album continued the theme, although without the freedom to use any more of Holst's work. Although altogether a fine and atmospheric album there is one outstanding track, a ten minute working of Dylan's "Father Of Day Father Of Night".

Soft vengeance progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! The album was recorded over a period of four years, but it was well worth the wait. A fine collection of well crafted songs with lead vocal duties being shared by Chris Thompson and Noel McCalla. Along with the much loved soloing interaction of Manfred Mann's keyboards and Mick Rogers guitars. The two singles taken from the album were 'Nothing ever happens' and 'Pleasure and Pain'. Although they didn't reach the top of any charts, they showed the Earth Band were back with a vengeance.
