MANFRED MANN CHAPTER 3 - RADIO DAYS VOL. 3: LIVE SESSIONS & STUDIO RARITIES Vinyl LP
Triple vinyl LP pressing. Radio Days & Rarities is the third volume in the series of Manfred Mann BBC recordings highlighting the radio appearances of Manfred Mann Chapter Three and numerous film soundtrack recordings, commercial jingles and various studio rarities. When pop group Manfred Mann broke up while near the top of the UK charts, Manfred Mann and Mike Hugg were quietly assembling Manfred Mann Chapter Three - a free-form group aimed at the growing album market. In addition to Mann and Hugg, the core of Chapter Three included sax/flute player Bernie Living, bassist Steve York, and drummer Craig Collinge. BBC legend Brian Matthew guided fans through this period by interviewing Mann and Hugg and presenting fresh versions of three tracks "Sometimes," "Time" and "One Way Glass" (which would later be sampled by The Prodigy and Public Enemy). Also featured on this volume are unique items from Australian and Swedish radio as well as early versions of "Konekuf" and "Time" from Chapter Three's debut album, and three tracks from an unissued third album. Some of the Mann-Hugg film work debuting here includes the entire "Venus In Furs" soundtrack, "Broken-Glass Lives," and a new version of "One Way Glass" which was part of the soundtrack for the film "Christa" (aka "Swedish Fly Girls"). Super-rare singles masters have also been included in brilliant quality, especially the three commercially released jingles that Mann and Hugg produced in 1969 and 1970: "The Michelin Theme (Go Radial, Go Michelin)," "The Maxwell House Shake," and the long-running "Ski 'Full Of Fitness' Theme."
