"To me, Paul Jones was the finest vocalist of the 60's British invasion period. His signature moment of being the vocalist for "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" and other early Manfred Mann hits was perhaps also a curse; it caused many to overlook his great efforts on MM's jazz and blues tinged LP tracks. The band stayed close to their blues roots and (along with Georgie Fame) was one of the first invasion bands to foray into jazz.
Jones, in his solo career, veered more into the pop field, albeit in his own style, and basically disappeared from the US scene after the soundtrack "Privilege." His material of that period was supported by orchestras and horn sections and therefore hued closer to acts like David and Jonathan and Jonathan King, and so on. For the best of that, I would refer you to Volume One of this series. Not that this is a bad CD, it's just that fledgling Paul Jones fans would be better to start with the earlier stuff."
