Manfred Mann's Earth Band "The Roaring Silence"

Mais um resultado das andanças do ZM, sem muito papo prq esse texto resume tudo e o som, bem o som é pra quem gosta mesmo.

Algumas fases deles são mais fáceis de assimilar ao meu ver mas, no todo, chegaram até aqui e não foi a toa.

Obs: Tô na audição do Santana e pqp Celso, num me torra com tudo igual, prq o que é bom só melhora com o tempo e quem ainda não baixou não sabe o que tá perdendo, vida longa ao "viejo Santana", the best!!!!!

Tudo começou em 1962 por Manfred Mann e Mike Hugg como “Mann Hugg Blues Brothers” mais tarde renomeado para “Manfred Mann”.

Em 71 ganhou o nome Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, após transformações na formação e um posicionamento mais progressivo do som, deixando um pouco de lado as músicas curtas e adotando canções mais longas, o nome Earth Band incorporado ao nome diz a respeito da preocupação com o meio ambiente, tema ainda central de algumas composições.

Com 18 discos de sucesso, fica complicado escolher o melhor entre tantos clássicos.

Três deles foram "número 01" no Reino Unido: “The Mighty Quinn”, “Pretty Flamingo” e “Do Wah Diddy Diddy”.

Entre 1971 a 1975 a banda produziu seis álbuns, cada um mostrando uma evolução constante em arranjos e composições.

O já clássico “Solar Fire” apareceu nesta época e teve o grande sucesso da banda “Joybringer” além da música que Bob Dylan escreveu “Father of Day”, executada até hoje nos shows
.The reason that The Roaring Silence became Manfred Mann's Earth Band's best-selling album may have been because of both Bruce Springsteen-penned singles, but its instrumental makeup, by way of Mann's keyboard manipulation coupled with Chris Thompson's chiseled singing, had just as much of an affect.

"Blinded By the Light" and "Spirit in the Night" gave the band hits at both ends of the Top 40 spectrum, with "Blinded" going to number one while the mysteriously-sounding "Spirit in the Night" edged in at number 40 six months later.
