Manfred Mann Radio Days Vol. 2 – The Mike D’abo Era, Live At The Bbc 66-69 Vinyl – 3 LP Box Set
Umbrella Musics Radio Days The Mike dAbo Era, 1966-1969, the second volume in its series of Manfred Manns BBC recordings, features vocalist Mike dAbo. This release is available on three LPs or two CDs and covers the bands Fontana label hitmaking from Just Like A Woman through Ragamuffin Man. The band lineup on this release includes Manfred Mann (keyboards), Mike dAbo (vocals/piano), Mike Hugg (drums/vibes/piano), Tom McGuinness (guitar), and Klaus Voormann (bass). Highly regarded BBC host Brian Matthew expertly follows the bands development through their increasingly complex pop confections while keeping their sense of humour intact. For such a rapidly changing music environment, Manfred Manns BBC radio appearances with Brian Matthew and other influential hosts (such as John Peel, David Symonds and Tony Brandon) would prove to be essential to the success of their singles. Radio Days The Mike dAbo Era spotlights the Saturday Club, Easy Beat and Top Gear sessions aired on the BBCs Top Of The Pops transcription series hosted by Brian Matthew, and some extremely rare off-air recordings have also been included. With one exception (Mighty Quinn), none of these BBC tracks have been released commercially before. The changing landscape of 1960s music led the various members of Manfred Mann to record production, songwriting, recording of film scores, commercial jingles and also artist management all the while continuing to create band recordings. Many of these pursuits are documented in Brian Matthews incisive interviews.
