Mastered from the Original Master Tapes! One of Their Most Accomplished & Adventurous Efforts!

Still the Original Manfreds!

The final LP by Manfred Mann’s legendary original lineup, Pretty Flamingo is one of their most accomplished and adventurous efforts. Featuring the beguiling title hit plus covers of Ray Charles’ “Let’s Go Get Stoned” and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put A Spell On You,” it embodies the mix of catchy pop songcraft, bluesy R&B punch and left-field experimentation that’s made Manfred Mann one of their era’s most beloved bands.

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.

"[I]f it was a swansong for the original band, what a way to go, showing off just how subversive this band's American albums, in particular, were. As was the custom here (as opposed to England), the producers put the group's current pop hit single on the LP as a lure to boost sales, but as with their other releases, the rest of the album is loaded up with hard R&B, soul, and blues, and delivered all of the music that white middle-class parents were scared to death their kids would hear. Jones was one of the best white soul shouters in England -- at his best, he sings like a god -- and in his final body of work for the group he goes out in superb style." - Bruce Eder,
