Mann started in the 1960s with the self-titled British invasion band that had such hits as "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" and "The Mighty Quinn" and then moved on to jazz fusion-inspired Manfred Mann Chapter Three before forming the Earth Band in 1971.
In his 2003 biography, Klaus Voormann, former member of original Manfred Mann group and Beatles-associate, is alleged to have inspired the Earth Band's name by having suggested several times throughout the 1960s that Mann's soft pop style of those days had to become "earthier" and rockier, not least of all because of the seemingly effeminate image of Mann's earlier band which had led to a number of close encounters with violence, particularly in Ireland.
On two non-charting single releases in the UK in 1972/73, the group was billed simply as "Earth Band", but otherwise, from 1972 forward "Manfred Mann's Earth Band" was the band name used on all releases.Flett was replaced by guitarist Steve Waller, who shared lead vocals with Thompson.Geoff Britton played drums on the album but was soon replaced by John Lingwood, due to illness.Other classical music adaptations include "Questions" off the 1976 album The Roaring Silence (which is based on the main theme of Franz Schubert's Impromptu in G flat Major), "Solar Fire is in Earth, the Circle, Pt.1" (which uses the melody from Claude Debussy's Jimbo's Lullaby), and "Starbird" also off 1976's The Roaring Silence (which is based upon Igor Stravinski's ballet The Firebird).

The '60s group Manfred Mann is now considered, more than ever, one of the finest and most respected bands from that era.Their numerous pop hits were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz - a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance.Original Manfred Mann members Paul Jones, Mike Hugg and Tom Mc Guinness, plus former member Mike d'Abo, are joined by Rob Townsend, Marcus Cliffe and Simon Currie as the exciting new line-up of The Manfreds, featuring both lead singers from the 1960s band.Since re-uniting as The Manfreds in the early '90s, they've toured the world with huge success, and we can't wait to have them back at Gawsworth thanks to their hugely accomplished musicianship and sheer joy of performing together once more.Before this hit, Mick Rogers had left the band (after the 'Nightingales And Bombers' album of 1975) and Chris Thompson (lead vocals, guitar) and Dave Flett (Lead guitar, backing vocals) had been quickly recruited to replace Rogers (although Rogers still contributed backing vocals to the album).

While the Springsteen original from 1973's Greetings from Asbury Park, N. has a folky, acoustic sound, the Earth Band's version is driving rock, combining Mann's Moog synthesizer and organ work with Flett's guitar.The band's hits include covers of Bruce Springsteen's "For You", "Blinded by the Light" and "Spirit In The Night".After forming in 1971 and despite a short hiatus in the late 1980s/early 1990s, the Earth Band has continued to perform and tour through the present.Following this popular success, the Earth Band released Watch which produced another hit single in "Davy's on the Road Again".Drummer Chris Slade and Dave Flett left before 1979's Angel Station.
