Man: Sixty Minutes With…

Actually, this CD offers almost 62 minutes with Man, but let's not get picky. The English pop-turned-prog band (which churned out drummer Terry Williams, who went on to phenomenal international success with Dire Straits) always sounded a notch above its contemporaries and never really fit into one particular rock scene — be it Canterbury, psych or boogie. Man's heyday was in the Seventies, and the band broke up before reuniting again in the Eighties and carrying on sporadically ever since. The current version of Man contains no original members (although it does boast bass player Martin Ace's son, Josh, and guitarist/vocalist Mickey Jones' son, George). There's nothing wrong with the eight tracks here, including Seventies gems like "Romain" "Many Are Called But Few Get Up" and "The Welsh Connection" while touching briefly on output from the Eighties, Nineties and new millennium; there just aren't enough of them. Sixty minutes (OK, 62 minutes) is nowhere near the amount of time needed to give listeners a proper primer. Maybe this series, whch also features Ptrick Moraz, Rick Wakeman and Gong, should make exceptions for certain bands and release One Hundred and Sixty Minutes With Man.
