Synopsis

Album Description
Immediately after Solar Fire became the ground breaking album from MMEB, the concert stage became their home. Countless tours across the world and accolades from the fans and press were commonplace for this tireless outfit. With years of experience at the helm, Manfred went back into the studio and created The Good Earth in 1974. Filled with ecological themes, hard rocking progressive rhythms, and the artistry of Mann, The Good Earth was another chapter in their history, which was about to make an amazing feat over the next couple of albums. Gary Wright's title cut, Give Me The Good Earth, went on to become a rock radio staple and gave this band a coveted space on play lists across the globe. Prior to more space-rock oriented efforts and other acts emulation of MMEB, this band was well ahead of their time with the use of the Moog and Arp synthesizers. Prog-rockers will hear the formula throughout this album and get a thrill from tracks like the single "Earth Hymn Part 2" and "Launching Place." Mick Rodgers is featured proudly on the ballad "Be Not To Hard." Great lyrics and anthem-like qualities make this one of the more lasting songs on this fifth effort from Mann and co. For the 2007 edition, Mann and the good people at Creature Music in London have found three bonus tracks, plus you get a wonderful remastering job, complete with unseen photos and detailed notes about the session. The Good Earth by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, its first release in North America after many years, is available once again. Cheers!
