Blinded by the Light & Other Hitsby Manfred Mann's Earth Band
While a ten-song collection doesn't really open up the complete mystery behind the pop success of Manfred Mann's Earth Band in the '60s and '70s, this ten-song set from Flashback featuring original recordings ultimately does a pretty fair job -- especially for the price. Spooky, popped-up arrangements of Bruce Springsteen's "Blinded by the Light" and "Spirit in the Night" (which most listeners heard before they encountered Springsteen's version) are here, but so are Bob Dylan's "The Mighty Quinn (Quinn the Eskimo)" and "You Angel You," Joan Armatrading's "Visionary Mountains," and Manfred Mann's own haunting "Questions."

OMG! I couldn't believe how many of the songs I knew, but never knew they were by Manfred Mann. When I heard, "California," on the tracks, I knew I HAD to get it. Very much worth the money.
