MAN'S SECOND CLASSIC ALBUM FOR LIBERTY / UA - NOW 24-BIT REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES WITH PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BONUS TRACKS

MAN's importance in the history of Welsh rock music cannot be understated. Fusing the worlds of psychedelia, blues, rock and roll and West Coast inspired rock, they were simply one of Britain's most original groups of the 1970's. Recording a series of Classic albums for Liberty / United Artists, MAN, along with labelmates HAWKWIND, were true champions of the "underground" spirit. Esoteric Recordings are proud to undertake the reissuing of MAN's entire legacy for United Artists continuing with their 2nd album for the label released in November 1971. The reissue is expanded by 35 minutes featuring 3 previously unreleased live bonus tracks from 1971 and liner notes exclusively penned by MAN guitarist and raconteur DEKE LEONARD. The time is right to re-experience the musical ages of MAN!

Already on their 4th album in late 1971 (their 2nd record that year) – MAN were properly hitting their stride as a band by the time they released the wonderfully titled "Do You Like It Here Now, Are You Settling In?" In fact when United Artists decided to issue their own specially priced double-album sampler for the label (following in the illustrious footsteps of "Bumpers" on Island, "A Breath Of Fresh Air" on Harvest and "El Pea" on Chrysalis) - they used a MAN track as its title - calling it "All Good Clean Fun" (that double was released in May 1971 on United Artists UDX 202 and the "All Good Clean Fun" track was exclusive to that double sampler at the time).

In truth Man’s 4th album is largely forgotten now by the Rock buying public (and has always been hard to find on original vinyl) - but this superb CD reissue brings to mind as to why this Welsh legendary group engenders so much affection. It’s a proper belter of a record and in extended form here (three great live tracks) – offers even more that’s worth returning to. Let’s get to why many are called, but few get up...

UK released October 2007 – the Expanded CD for "Do You Like It Here Now, Are You Settling in?" by MAN is on Esoteric Recordings ECLEC 2013 (Barcode 5013929711327) and pans out as follows (73:30 minutes):

1. Angel Easy
2. All Good Clean Fun
3. We’re Only Children
4. Many Are Called, But Few Get Up [Side 2]
5. Manillo
6. Love Your Life
Tracks 1 to 6 are their 4th album "Do You Like It Here Now, Are You Settling In?" – released November 1971 in the UK on United Artists UAS 29236 (no USA issue). Production and all compositions are by MAN.

Originally released in 1971, so I'm assuming this was possibly Man's fourth album. I had recent compared notes with a couple of old school Man followers and they mentioned that 'Do You Like...' isn't considered to be the long running progressive British band's best work. Personally, I thought it was almost as good as the 1970 self-titled Man CD reissue. Best tracks this disc has to offer is the awesome and rather uplifting "Angel Easy", the tightly played "We're Only Children", "Manillo" that features some really good Man-trademark guitar riffing and "Love Your Life" (has an almost Deep Purple-like organ sound to it). Esoteric adds on three (3) bonus cuts to this already should-have CD reissue. Very nice.

This album has been in my collection for many years and the one I would take to that desert island. I love it. Bought originally on vinyl in the 70’s and later on CD (1997 Eagle records edition). I can’t believe how much it is underrated, even by Man fans, as IMHO it is easily their best album, you just need to give it time to grow on you. It starts strongly, and continues to get better with each track, culminating in the beautiful ‘We’re only children’ on the old side 1, and the magnificent ‘Love your life’ on side 2. One of the top 10 albums ever made. Wonderful!

Welsh rock emigrants Man had established themselves on the Continent by 1971. Nestling in the bosom of a Germany in a hippy grip as a popular local live act, they had even picked up the lingo, evidenced on their intros to three bonus tracks recorded at a period concert at Essen on this bonzer reissue of the band's second outing on United Artists. Recorded back in the old country at Rockfield Studios in time snatched from the jaws of gigging, the album's more definedly 'progressive' than its predecessor, a uniquely quirky outing in country and krautrock, though equally kraud-pleasing. More commercial in appeal, too, this nonetheless retains satisfyingly some of the experimentalism that hallmarked them from the mainstream of the day.

4.0 out of 5 stars "...All Good Clean Fun..." – Do You Like It Here Now, Are You Settling In? (2007 Esoteric Recordings Expanded CD Remaster) 6 May 2015

Tracks 7 to 9 are PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED and were recorded live at the Gugenhaalle, Essen, Germany in November 1971

The band at the time consisted of MICKEY JONES on Guitars & Vocals, DEKE LEONARD on Guitars, Piano and Vocals, CLIVE JOHN on Organ, Piano & Vocals, MARTIN ACE on Bass with TERRY WILLIAMS on Drums.

Esoteric Recordings (part of Cherry Red) have handled the whole MAN catalogue reissue program with full-on involvement from the band – so Deke Leonard’s liner notes in the 16-page booklet are a great read – witty, informative and proud of the band’s recorded achievement. Visually the booklet is a feast of concert tickets, trade magazine reviews, flyers and business cards – they also include the lyrics and detailed recording/reissue credits at the rear. But the big news for fans is a PASCHAL BYRNE remaster from original master tapes that brings out all that intricate playing – "All Good Clean Fun" sounds amazing.

While associated with a stoner sound at the time (especially live) – most of Side 1 is actually very Prog – complicated Rock tunes given space to stretch out. It opens with the chugging guitars of "Angel Easy" where the two lead players riff off of each other as they run up and down the frets. "All Good Clean Fun" is a weird little tune but I always liked it. The eight-minutes plus of "We're Only Children" is the mellow side finisher where half way through it goes all Moody Blues and Genesis in the vocal department – it's even a little Gentle Giant (gorgeous guitar solo in there too).

"Many Are Called, But Few Get Up" has been a concert standard for the band ever since its release here – and its intricate seven-minutes virtually defines MAN’s sound for the whole decade to come. When it breaks into that Rock groove and the lyrics kick in – it’s brilliant stuff (it became a highlight on the live "Maximum Darkness" set in 1975). For me "Manillo" is one the great undiscovered Rock tunes of the early Seventies – very Kevin Ayers somehow in the treated vocals and fuzzed-up wailing guitars and that slinky almost sinister groove (heady stuff). Side 2 then ends with the nine-minute twin-guitar boogie battle of "Love Your Life" – very MAN.

The extras add very nice icing to the cake. After telling the crowd (in both Welsh and German) to sit down so punters at the rear can see – they launch into "Many Are Called, But Few Get Up". The audio is better than bootleg but not quite live album standard – it still rocks though. "Angel Easy" is good too but far better is the slide guitar work on "Romain" – a standout track on the "Man" album from March 1971 - their 3rd LP. Here it stretches out to a crowd-pleasing 18:33 minutes and is everything that was great about the band at the time. It’s crudely recorded for sure but the power of the band is there in spades.

"...The Trip's just begun, we've broken the ice..." - they sang on "All Good Clean Fun". Break the ice and start your trip here...
