I am a loyal, longtime fan of Manfred Mann's Earth Band, but had never ventured in to buying any of his earlier material.

Once this 4-CD import found a domestic distributor, the price came down quite a bit, and I decided to take the plunge. I'm very happy that I did.

My first impression upon listening to this material was "how can this sound so good when the original recordings are over 40 years old!?"

The sound is crystal clear, with distinct, but very natural, separation. No lyric sheet is needed, as the vocals come through sharp and well-defined. The sound on all these recordings is, in a word, superb.

I don't pretend to be an expert on the completeness of the song selections here, but there are four discs, each over an hour in length - and a very well-prepared booklet with a brief history of the band and credits for each selection. I learned a lot simply going over the booklet. It would appear they've covered the EMI years fairly exhaustively.

Many cuts are previously unreleased or were only available as B-sides to vinyl singles.

There's a nice balance here between early 60's pop, R&B and blues, with more than a touch of a jazz/be-bop on some cuts (this band started out as a jazz band before getting a recording contract) to round things out.

A VERY enjoyable set - both for completists and for the fan like me, who simply wanted a good representation of early Manfred Mann.

Highly recommended.

This doesn't have everything -- you'll have to search elsewhere for the "long" version (with the instrumetal break) of Do Wah Diddy Diddy. And the eleven-miute interview by the group with a very staid announcer type is, through no fault of the band, pretty risable.

But it';s a lot of the Manfreds, and the notes and discography are quite good. I'd certaily recommend the set. And the short version of Do Wah Diddy Diddy WAS, after all, the hit.

I've been a fan ever since I saw them live at the old (very old) Sydney Stadium. They were superb live back then and this is just as good. It is apparently complete and if so they must have been amazing as it is all wonderful and evocative of an era while being timeless! The sound is great, the best I've heard on this material. The only caveat concerns the packaging. On a personal level I would have preferred a long box format. Other than that it is all five stars.
