    Instrumental Asylum

    Instrumental Asylum is an EP by Manfred Mann, released in 1966. The EP is a 7-inch vinyl record and released in mono with the catalogue number His Master's Voice-EMI 7EG 8949. The band recorded this as they were in the process of re-organizing. All the songs chosen were covers of current relatively well known pop and rock songs, The Yardbirds' Still I'm Sad being the most obscure. Mike Vickers had left and been replaced on guitar by bassist McGuinness who in turn was replaced on bass by Bruce. Horn players Lowther and Dobson took over the lead spot from singer Jones who was soon to quit the band. There is little evidence of Jones on the record. As with most of their other records, both albums and EPs of this era, the liner notes were written by Manfred Mann member Tom McGuinness. 1. Still I'm Sad (Samwell-Smith) 2. My Generation (Townshend) 1. (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (Jagger-Richards) 2. I Got You Babe (Bono) This EP was the band's least successful effort since their initial EP release, Cock-a-Hoop in 1964. It reached # 3 in the British EP charts.

    Instrumental Assassination

    Instrumental Assassination] is a 1966 jazz-rock EP by Manfred Mann, produced by Shel Talmy and released by Fontana Records (TE17483). Mann reported that the group "loved it" and the producer was "particularly pleased": Fontana's Jack Baverstock found it full of ideas, humour and new thinking, but the EP sold poorly and was re-released in its entirety on the 1968 Fontana compilation album What A Mann. Like the earlier Instrumental Asylum the record offered four free-wheeling and light-hearted improvisatory arrangements of current pop songs, The Troggs' "Wild Thing" and "With a Girl like You" and Georgie Fame's "Sunny" and "Getaway". Manfred Mann and Mike Hugg continued their practice, established at their earliest sessions, of dubbing jazzy solos over their own rhythm section tracks, in this case with their former double bassist Dave Richmond. Their current bass player, Klaus Voorman appeared on only recorder. Tom McGuinness played guitar. "Sunny" begins with bowed bass and lazy vibes introducing a powerful organ solo, accompanied by frenzied screaming (it was, said Mann "a pretty wild session"), dissolving into a fast cadenza and recapitulation. "Wild Thing" sets a piano-driven

    Mann Made

    Mann Made is the second studio album by British beat/R group Manfred Mann, released by His Master's Voice in October 1965. An album of the same title, but a slightly different track listing, was released in Canada by Capitol Records on 6 June 1966 and featured the hit single "Pretty Flamingo". There were fewer R songs on Mann Made than on The Five Faces of Manfred Mann and more pop. Mike Vickers and Paul Jones would leave the group after this album.

    The Five Faces of Manfred Mann

    The Five Faces of Manfred Mann is the first studio album by British beat/R group Manfred Mann. It was first released in the United Kingdom on 11 September 1964 by His Master's Voice. In late October/early November, the album was released in Canada by Capitol Records. The Canadian track listing was almost the same as the UK version, except it included the hit "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" instead of "I've Got My Mojo Working". The record has been called "one of the great blues-based British invasion albums; it's a hot, rocking record that benefits from some virtuoso playing as well". The American version of the album (their second U.S. release following The Manfred Mann Album) was released in February 1965 by Ascot Records (a subsidiary of United Artists) with a very different track listing. The songs on the original version of the Five Faces of Manfred Mann are R, including the band's cover versions of Howlin' Wolf's ("Smokestack Lightning"), Muddy Waters' ("Got My Mojo Working"), and Bo Diddley's ("Bring It to Jerome") as well as a few of the group's own compositions — and jazz: particularly noticeable in the instrumental sections are Manfred Mann's keyboard work, Mike Vickers flute

    As Is

    As Is is a 1966 pop music album by Manfred Mann. It was their fourth overall (including a "greatest hits" package) but their first for Fontana Records and their first to feature new members Mike d'Abo and Klaus Voormann. It was produced by Shel Talmy and released in the U.K. on 21 October 1966 (STL5377). The twelve tracks on the record include the line-up's first single release, a cut-down version of Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman" that reached the UK top ten. A short cool jazz version of "Autumn Leaves", reminiscent of the Modern Jazz Quartet with Mike Hugg's vibraphone and double bass from the group's former bassist Dave Richmond, sounds like an out-take from the group's instrumental releases: these two make weight for a fairly short collection of group compositions. As d'Abo's presence somehow sparked Mike Hugg into producing baroque pop miniatures both contribute three songs: d'Abo's "Box Office Draw" and "Trouble and Tea" are well-crafted pop, while "As Long as I Have Lovin'" is a generic soul ballad. Hugg's "Morning After the Party", also released as a "B" side and on the compilation album What a Mann, recalls the rowdy rhythm and blues of the group's past while two of his

    The One in the Middle

    The One in the Middle is an EP by Manfred Mann, released in 1965. The EP is a 7-inch vinyl record and released in mono with the catalogue number His Master's Voice-EMI 7EG 8909. The record was the number 1 EP in the UK number-one EP for 9 weeks during the summer of 1965. The cover picture was taken by Nicholas Wright. The title song The One in the Middle was written by Manfred Mann's lead singer Paul Jones (singer) for Keith Relf of the Yardbirds, but Relf "shied away from the lyrics". It was then determined that Jones would sing it and he did, mastering "the art of singing tongue in cheek." The Dylan song, set to piano and military snare-drum, was the first of several recorded by the band, included here, according to the record's liner notes, because Bob had attended a gig and declared them "real groovy". The remaining tracks see the Manfreds on familiar ground, mining the US Rhythm and Blues charts for a Paul Jones vocal vehicle and picking up a funky jazz-blues classic that, like the title track, leaves room for the band's excellent soloing. The record reached the Number 1 spot on the UK's EP charts three times. It first topped the chart on June 19, 1965, only to be displaced a

    Mighty Garvey!

    Mighty Garvey! is an album released in 1968 by Manfred Mann. It was the second and last recorded by the band (not including compilations and the soundtrack album to the film Up The Junction) after the change of direction and personnel of the previous As Is. It continued a transition away from jazz and blues and towards self-composed art-pop. Despite including two UK 'Top 5' hit singles (Bob Dylan's "Mighty Quinn" and Tony Hazzard's "Ha! Ha! Said The Clown"), the album did not chart and the band split up the year after. The group's continued pop success with material by established songwriters such as Dylan and Hazzard made its handlers averse to the risk of releasing self-written singles, a state of affairs that had prevailed ever since the success of "Do Wah Diddy Diddy", even though the group's first hits had been self-composed, at least one example of drummer Mike Hugg's new-found productivity had been seen as potentially chart-worthy and singer Mike d'Abo was able to provide other artists with hits such as "Build Me Up Buttercup" and "Handbags and Gladrags". The resultant pop image did not encourage album sales to "serious" listeners, particularly when trends were turning from
