55 of 57 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 11 Oct 2003
Format: Audio CD
There were three phases to Manfred Mann's career - the mid sixties with Paul Jones as lead singer, the late sixties with Mike D'Abo as lead singer and the stuff they did after the sixties as Manfred Mann's Earth Band. This compilation covers the first two of those phases and is the best single CD collection of their sixties music.

Back in the sixties, Manfred Mann had many hits in Britain although not many of them charted in America. Do wah diddy diddy (first recorded by the Exciters who only had a minor American hit with it) was a number one in both countries.

Their music was generally upbeat good-time music and could be described as a cross between R+B and mainstream pop. Given that, it may seem surprising that they covered several songs by folk-rocker Bob Dylan but the combination worked well and no doubt helped to build Dylan's reputation as a great songwriter. Manfred Mann took Mighty Quinn to the very top of the British charts and had other top ten UK hits with Dylan's songs, including If you gotta go go now and Just like a woman.
Of the other songs, Pretty flamingo was yet another British chart-topper and Oh no not my baby was originally an American hit for the under-appreciated Maxine Brown. Other songs that I particularly like include 54321, Come tomorrow, My name is Jack, Ha ha said the clown, Ragamuffin man and Fox on the run.

There are plenty of Manfred Mann compilations to choose from but this one has all the songs that matter from the sixties.

Has all the hits (prior to the Earth Band years) and features both the Paul Jones and Mike D'Abo era Manfreds.
Well played, catchy sixties pop from an underated outfit!

Format: Audio CD
When we look back on the sixties and recall the groups and their music
we often overlook many, the first groups that spring to mind of course
'The Beatles' and 'The Stones'
However there was many groups such as 'Manfred Mann' that had a big
and genuine impact on the charts back then,
They exploded onto the scene in 1964 with '5-4-3-2-1' a great sixties track
that peaked at number '5' between 1964-1969 they actually achieved '15'
Top 30 entries, '13' of which were Top 10 entries three of which topped
the U.K chart, those being 'Do Wah Diddy Diddy' 'Pretty Flamingo' and
'Mighty Quinn'
Some of the other memorable tracks on board include ...'If You Go Gotta Go,
Go Now'...'My Name is Jack'....'I Put a Spell On You'....'Ha!Ha! Said The Clown'
'Hubble Bubble' (Toil and Trouble) and 'Fox on The Run'
There are notably one or two 'Bob Dylan' covers on-board which both charted for the
group including 'Mighty Quinn' and 'Just Like A Woman' both a more than
credible version of the great-song writer's numbers.
There are of course many other of their hits included on this 22-track album.
Of course, with one or two new faces the group became 'Manfred Mann's
Earthband' in the late sixties into the seventies achieving many more Chart-Hits.
This is a great reflection of the groups achievements during the Sixties Era, and
obviously worth adding to your collection.

22 great tracks from one of rocks under rated groups. I'd forgotten how many hits there were until after I'd played the preview samples. The variety of songs, melody & styles makes for a great budget CD album.
Go for it - you won't be disappointed!

I went to see the Manfreds recently, and they were brilliant, Paul Jones voice sounds just as good as it ever was and he is now 72 . I bought the CD as I couldn't get the songs out of my head, it has all there hits on it and is great value for the price, If you loved the group back in the day then you will love this cd

This album does pretty much what it says on the tin; 16 of the 22 tracks are Top 40 hit singles (only the instrumental 'Sweet Pea' is absent) with the emphasis very much on the period from 1964 to mid-1966 when Paul Jones was the featured vocalist and 2 of the group's 3 Number One hits arrived ['Do Wah Diddy Diddy' and 'Pretty Flamingo']. When Jones left to pursue solo projects, the little known Mike D'Abo joined the fold for the period mid-1966 to 1969 and the hits kept flowing with 'Mighty Quinn' completing the hat-trick of chart toppers.
If you like R&B flavoured pop music of the 1960s, then I can guarantee that you will like this collection. In order to acquire more of the latter period featuring the 'poppier' vocal style of Mike D'Abo, then I can heartily recommend 'The Very Best of the Fontana Years' - an interesting album which I have reviewed in full elsewhere.

I remember all the songs on this album so am able to sing along with it.
I thought this album of their songs had the best selection of them.
