This week on Prog-Watch I’m digging in to some of the vast Musical World of Manfred Mann! From his early days in the ’60s pop band that bore his name, through the jazz explorations of Manfred Mann Chapter Three, to the more progressive sounds of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Manfred has had a long and diverse career! I hope you will join me in exploring some of it!

In this episode, Brian chats to Joe Cairney of Comedy of Errors after their triumphant, or triumphal even, gig at Fusion 3.5. He may, or may not, give away some exclusive news, but our hearts go out to him after the loss of a good friend. Hugs, Joe. We find time to play a couple of tracks from the marvellous Fanfare & Fantasy album, which Brian bought on vinyl. With English money. For logistical reasons the tunes you hear may well not be directly from his vinyl copy. But don’t tell anybody.
