MAN's importance in the history of Welsh rock music cannot be understated. Fusing the worlds of psychedelia, blues, rock and roll and West Coast inspired rock, they were simply one of Britain's most original groups of the 1970's. Recording a series of Classic albums for Liberty / United Artists, MAN, along with labelmates HAWKWIND, were true champions of the "underground" spirit. Esoteric Recordings are proud to undertake the reissuing of MAN's entire legacy for United Artists beginning with their debut for the label released in March 1971. The reissue features a previously unreleased 17 minute bonus track and liner notes exclusively penned by MAN guitarist and raconteur DEKE LEONARD. The time is right to re- experience the musical ages of MAN!
Man - self-titled (Esoteric)

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This was the third ever title I've heard by these long-running British progressive psych rockers. I have friends that remember Man as support band for Hawkwind way back when on their U.S. 'Hall Of The Mountain Grill' trek. Originally released in 1970. "Romain" has a nice forward blues rock feel to it, "Country Girl" is a country laced pop oriented song that might remind fans of New Riders Of The Purple Sage and "Would The Christians Wait Five Minutes" is a thirteen-minute breath taking psychedelic jamming instrumental. Also dug the straight ahead rocker "Daughter Of The Fireplace" and "Alchemist", a superb twenty-one minute epic of almost 'psychedelic experimental' (if you wish to call it that - possibly the best track of the entire disc). This Esoteric pressings adds on two bonus cuts - one being the single edit of the previously mentioned "Daughter Of The Fireplace". Line-up: Deke Leonard-guitar & vocals, Roger Leonard-steel guitar & piano, Martin Ace-acoustic guitar & vocals, Mickey Jones-electric guitar & vocals and Terry Williams-percussion. Should appeal to fans of Savoy Brown, Caravan, Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash and Camel. A definite must-have."
