Double vinyl LP pressing. Radio Days - The Paul Jones Era is the first complete collection of existing BBC recordings made by the original Manfred Mann lineup with vocalist Paul Jones between 1964 and 1966. The band join legendary BBC presenter Brian Matthew through the rapidly changing music styles and environment of the mid-'60s. The sessions also feature another legend, bassist Jack Bruce, who was previously with The Graham Bond Organisation and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. After his stint with Manfred Mann, Bruce would go on to form Cream with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker. His presence in the group is highlighted on "Long Hair, Unsquare Dude Called Jack" never before officially available. "Radio Days" also includes group and individual interviews. Compiled from BBC recordings featured on the programs "Saturday Swings," "Saturday Club," "Top Gear," Swing Into Summer" and "Pop Inn," this "Radio Days" collection is a fascinating look into how one of the UK's most respected sixties bands promoted their current and upcoming releases and cultivated their fan base. Manfred Mann achieved this by performing new studio versions of their HMV label output along with some unique, BBC-only performances.
