Manfred Mann's Earth Band: Get Your Rocks Off

Wayne Robins, Creem, August 1973

MANFRED MANN'S a survivor. What that means is that no matter where you got on the bus: be it with ‘Do Wah Diddy Diddy’ in the summer of 1964, or with ‘Mighty Quinn’, some years later, or with the ill-fated Chapter III, or the Earth Band – no matter where you found Manfred, the dude was saying something.
