Twee nummers van dit album werden op single uitgebracht, For you, een lied van Bruce Springsteen en het maatschappijkritische Lies (through the 80’s), geschreven door de jazzsaxofonist David “Fathead” Newman. Daarna heeft hij de band Manfred Mann Chapter Three opgericht. Initially he formed Manfred Mann Chapter Three, an experimental group that evolved into Manfred Mann's Earth Band.
Manfred Mann's Earth Band bestond de eerste jaren uit Mick Rogers (zang en gitaar), Manfred Mann (toetsen en zang), Colin Pattender (bas) en Chris Slade (drums). De groep begon haar carrière met optredens in de Studio 51 in de Great Newport Street in Londen, in dezelfde periode dat de Rolling Stones - nog zonder platencontract - daar covers van Chuck Berry en Bo Diddley kwamen spelen.

English band Manfred Mann were big in the 1960s with covers like 'Pretty Flamingo' and 'Mighty Quinn', but the members themselves were something of an anomaly in the music scene – neither Liverpool mop tops or scruffy Rolling Stones wannabes. Manfred Mann's Earth Band has continued recording to the present day, covering tracks by artists as varied as Paul Weller, Robert Cray, Del Amitri, and The Lovin' Spoonful. All Rights reserved.

Colin … After a very successful period in the 1960's with the pop group named Manfred Mann after him and a much less successful intermezzo in Jazz with Manfred Mann Chapter Three, the South-African born keyboardist Manfred Mann (real name Manfred Lubowitz) turned towards rock music. Manfred Mann (born Manfred Sepse Lubowitz, 21 October 1940 in Johannesburg, Transvaal, Union of South Africa) is a British keyboard player, guitarist, and vocalist, born in South Africa, who became best known as a founding member and eponym of the bands Manfred Mann, Manfred Mann Chapter Three and Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Their take on “Do Wah Diddy” (yes, it was lacking a Diddy) hadn’t exactly torn up the airwaves, stalling at #78 in early 1964. Around the same time that that single charted in America, Jones had already departed, shooting for a solo career (at which he was moderately successful). “Do Wah Diddy Diddy,” written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich—the songwriting couple who’d been cranking out hits for producer Phil Spector and others—had been recorded previously by the Exciters, an American quartet whose 1962-’63 “Tell Him” had perched in the top 5 on the Billboard chart. Disgusted by South Africa’s racist apartheid policy, Lubowitz moved to the U.K. in 1961 and began contributing articles to a jazz magazine, using the pseudonym Manfred Manne (he soon dropped that final e). In 1980 verscheen Chance , het tiende album. With Jones taking the lead vocal, Manfred Mann turned the song into an electrified, soulful powerhouse and, riding the wave of the British Invasion, they rode it all the way to #1 in the U.K. in August and, on an indie label called Ascot, to the top of the charts in America a couple of months later. Best Classic Bands Editor Jeff Tamarkin has been a prolific music journalist for more than four decades.

1980's Chance showed a move towards a more electronic approach, and produced several cuts that were hits in the UK and/or saw significant airplay in both the US and UK. Dit album bevat onder anderen delen van Gustav Holst‘s The Planets. Also other data will not be shared with third person. De meeste nummers zijn geschreven door Mann of andere bandleden. The songs "Lies (All Through The 80's)", "Stranded", and "For You" (another Springsteen song) still receive significant airplay over 25 years since their release.

But wait, there’s more—much more—to come! Hij werd opgevolgd door Chris Thompson (zang en gitaar) en Dave Flett (gitaar en zang).
Mann has also released a solo project, Plains Music, based on Native American music, and his latest album, 2006, includes collaborations with the German rapper Thomas D and tracks featuring the music of, amongst others, the Super Furry Animals. Mann has used various keyboard instruments through his career, but he is especially known for his solo performance on the Minimoog synthesizer. Between 1959 and 1961 he and his childhood friend Saul Ozynski recorded two albums as the Vikings, South Africa's first rock and roll band. Watch produced another hit single in "Davy's On The Road Again", and the albums were innovative and original despite the dependence on covers of other artists' songs. There would be a few more chart singles into the early ’80s, giving the namesake a full two decades’ worth of visibility. Lubowitz was raised in a Jewish family in Johannesburg, South Africa, the son of David Lubowitz and Alma Cohen. Said the Clown,” which would become a minor hit in the States for the Yardbirds, was a big one for Manfred Mann in the U.K. and several other countries, even reaching #1 in Austria, Germany and the Netherlands. Manfred Mann is de enige die vanaf het begin in de band heeft gezeten. Learn how your comment data is processed. Still, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band soldiered on until, finally, they found their ticket.
