Manfred Mann

manfredmann

Manfred Mann was an English beat, rhythm and blues and pop band (with a strong jazz foundation) of the 1960s, named after keyboardist, Manfred Mann, who later led the successful 1970s group Manfred Mann's Earth Band.

The group began a string of successes with Bob Dylan songs with a track on the best-selling EP The One in the Middle, "With God on Our Side", next reaching No. 2 in the UK with "If You Gotta Go, Go Now". Their first Fontana single, Dylan's "Just Like a Woman", scraped in the UK top ten, reaching number one in Sweden. They had a resounding success with "Mighty Quinn", their third UK No. 1 and third hit Dylan song, which also peaked at No. 3 in Canada and No. 10 in the US.

In 1971 they had disbanded and Mann had formed Manfred Mann's Earth Band. McGuinness formed McGuinness Flint in 1970, scoring a few hits before they disbanded in 1975. Both Jones and McGuinness have been mainstays of the Blues Band, which they helped form in 1978. In June 1983 Manfred Mann briefly reformed for an appearance at the Marquee Club in London, to help celebrate the club's 25th anniversary.

In the 1990s most of the original 1960s line-up reformed as the Manfreds, minus Manfred Mann himself (hence the name), playing most of the old 1960s hits and a few jazz instrumentals, sometimes with both Paul Jones and Mike d'Abo fronting the line-up.  In 2009 the Manfreds; Mike D'Abo, Mike Hugg, Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness joined Klaus Voormann performing a version of Mighty Quinn for his first solo collection A Sideman's Journey credited to "Voormann & Friends."
