Paul Jones - wasn't he in...? Well yes he was, but then Paul Jones is also familiar through his acting in films, musicals and the theatre, regular broadcasts on the TV and Radio (Paul currently hosts a weekly R&B / Blues show for both Jazz FM and Radio 2, plus his continuing pop work. With a career spanning some 40 years, Paul's popularity has never waned. Interest in Manfred Mann has been renewed by a reunion of the band's classic line-up, itself sparked by a TV advertised "Best Of". Jones also fronts The Blues Band, who continue to tour and record on a regular basis as they have since their formation in 1979. Most areas of Paul's musical work are well covered on CD, except for one major gap - that of Paul Jones' solo career. Between 1966 and 1971 Jones cut a series of excellent solo albums My Way , Love Me Love My Friends , Come Into My Musical Box" and "Crucifix In A Horseshoe" - and singles. RPM felt it was High Time this missing area of Paul's career was made available again. This CD includes the 1966 solo album "MY WAY", which featured Paul's first big hit High Time . The album found Paul taking some of the Manfred's jazz tinged r'n'b/soul feel and moving into a poppier vein, with the hit single giving the good-looking Jones immediate Pin Up status. The bonus CD cuts are three non albums single sides, two previously unissued tracks, and all four tracks from the chart EP "Privilege", which include the hit I've Been A Bad Bad Boy and the rare (My Poor Heart Is Surely) Breaking , not available elsewhere.
