Besides the expensive price of this set the sound quality is horrendous. At least two of the songs (including Blinded By The Light) are badly edited versions and not the full ones played on the radio. Do not waste your money on this garbage like I did. I would love to have a decent box set from these guys.

While "Complete Greatest Hits" (Creature Music) is probably the best attempt ever at creating an all-in-one overview of Manfred Mann's career (though World of Mann comes close), there are a couple of major things wrong with this 2-CD set. First of all, it's a 2-CD set. If anyone deserves a comprehensive, career spanning boxed set, Manfred Mann and his assorted colleagues do. There's at least four distinct periods of their music as they evolved from brittle British Invasion pop to extravagant progressive rock. And, I would argue, at least four discs worth of worthy material.

Second, this set skips right over one of those periods - the early Earth Band recordings circa 1971-1974 for Polydor Records (now part of behemoth Universal Music). This includes their eponymous debut featuring a shimmering version of Randy Newman's "Living Without You." The omission is mostly likely due to financial and/or licensing reasons, but that doesn't make it any less glaring.

"Complete Greatest Hits" also skips Mann's brief, transitional, jazz-oriented "Chapter Three" period between the original group and the Earth Band, but that omission is so universal that it's hard to hold it against them. All the same, the lack of willingness on the part of the labels, or Mann himself, to address his legacy in a concise, comprehensive, contextual manner is disheartening. (I should point out that there is a 21-CD

A brilliant compilation of just about every hit this most underrated Brit band ever recorded-and there were plenty! It's always mystified me why this group never reached the same levels of fame and fortune achieved by many much better known but significantly less talented combos on either side of the Atlantic. An essential purchase for everyone who loves an irresistably catchy pop song!

MANFRED MANN-COMPLETE GREATEST HITS: This is a good stab at anthologizing all phases of Manfred Mann's career, from his early RNB 60s doo wah ditties to his 70s prog-rock phase with the Earth Band, but it can't truly be called "complete". Missing in action are two of the MMEB's earliest and best hits, Randy Newman's wondrous sonic slab LIVING WITHOUT YOU, and Bob Dylan's yearning PLEASE MRS. HENRY, obscure pop masterworks worth seeking out. There's still much to rejoice in here, from the rollicking Brit Invasion classics DO WAH DIDDY DIDDY, PRETTY FLAMINGO, and THE MIGHTY QUINN (Dylan again) to the Earth Band's radical reinterpretations of Bruce Springsteen's tantalizing tongue-twisters BLINDED BY THE LIGHT and SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT. Even lesser known Earth Band memories DAVY'S ON THE ROAD AGAIN and DON'T KILL IT CAROL soar on the strength of Chris Thompson's bloozey rasp and Mann's always inventive synthesizer excursions. Throughout a career that saw numerous lineups (including at least four soulful lead singers), musical about-faces, and a major name change, Manfred Mann provided the world with a sonic palette of worthwhile endeavors.

RATING: FOUR "WOW, MANN!"'S

The title of this review is to point out that if for no other reason the version of "For You" done acoutically is woth the entire price of the CD. If your wondering how good Manfred Mann can be this CD will say it all. Disc 2 is particullarly great. Enjoy

Out of 36 tracks, I only recognized about 6 songs. I don't remember ever hearing the rest of them. I thought I would have known more of his songs.
