1965’s punningly titled My Little Red Book of Winners is one of Manfred Mann’s most eclectic efforts, with the band stretching out into more sophisticated musical territory on “My Little Red Book,” their historic collaboration with Burt Bacharach. They also deliver memorable original compositions like the autobiographical “The One in the Middle,” and indelible readings of classic tunes by Bob Dylan, the Coasters and Maxine Brown.

Although many of the British Invasion’s most prominent bands were comprised of inexperienced rockers learning their craft as they went along, Manfred Mann was something different. The versatile British quintet, which took its collective name from that of its South African-born keyboardist, was comprised of four seasoned musicians with a solid grounding in jazz and blues, plus a charismatic frontman who was also one of England’s finest blue-eyed soul singers. Together, the five members of Manfred Mann—or the Manfreds, as their fans called them—turned their diverse talents towards rock ’n’ roll, and came up with a series of albums and singles that are among the catchiest and most enduring of the period.

Now, Sundazed reaches back to present Manfred Mann’s first five U.S. albums, out of print for decades and reissued for the first time in their original vinyl format, mastered from the original tapes and featuring complete cover art.

"One of Manfred Mann's finest early records, My Little Red Book of Winners was, aside from being a fine album that captured the band's early sensibility, a highly influential record. The hit song 'My Little Red Book,' an excellent arrangement of the Bacharach/David masterpiece, was included in the hit movie What's New Pussycat. It was there that Love's lead singer Arthur Lee first heard it, after which he arranged it for his band. Lee also aped a sense of style and phrasing from Mann's lead singer, Paul Jones, and did so to great effect. The rest of this record is equally brilliant in spots. 'The One in the Middle,' an excellent midtempo blues from Jones, proved what a fine and witty songwriter he was. Other covers on the album include 'Oh No, Not My Baby' and 'With God on Our Side,' which illustrate how effectively the band could capture any style and make it their own." - Matthew Greenwald, allmusic.com
