The vast majority of British-invasion bands of the '60s either sank into obscurity or had been long broken up by the mid-'70s, but Manfred Mann was an exception to the rule. The band (who changed their name to Manfred Mann's Earth Band) successfully updated their sound along the way, gaining new fans via a more progressive tinge as well as keeping the interest of their longtime admirers. 1996's THE BEST OF MANFRED MANN'S EARTH BAND is a live collection featuring hits from all eras of the long-standing group's career. Included are renditions of their massive 1976 Bruce Springsteen-penned hit "Blinded By the Light" and such rock-radio favorites as "On the Run," Bob Dylan's "Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)," and MM's other Springsteen re-imagining, "For You." While a Manfred Mann collection containing the original renditions might be better suited to the newcomer, THE BEST OF MANFRED MANN'S EARTH BAND confirms that the group has no problem rocking out on the concert stage.
