Manfred Mann Chapter Three Radio Days Vol. 3 – Live Sessions & Studio Rarities Vinyl – 3 LP Box Set

Creature Music is releasing the third volume in the series of Manfred Mann BBC recordings. Titled “Radio Days & Rarities,” this three-LP/ two-CD release highlights the radio appearances of Manfred Mann Chapter Three and numerous film soundtrack recordings, commercial jingles and various studio rarities. The pop group Manfred Mann broke up as the single “Ragamuffin Man” was 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. As usual, 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”) from the band’s self-titled album. “One Way Glass” sample was later to form the basis of the track “Stand Up” by The Prodigy and Manfred Mann and “Shut Up” by The Prodigy, Public Enemy and Manfred Mann. An early Chapter Three prototype was used by Mann and Hugg for a jazz instrumental in “The Gorge,” originally aired in 1968 as part of the BBC1 series “The Wednesday Play.” Also featured on this release are unique items from Australian and Swedish radio as well as early versions of “Konekuf” and “Time” from the band’s debut album, and three tracks from the unissued third album: “Train Crash,” “So Sorry Please,” and “Chips.” Mann-Hugg film work debuting here include the entire “Venus In Furs” soundtrack and “Broken-Glass Lives,” 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.”
