I've exceptionally included Badfinger even though none of them played in Man, however they are near neighbours and there were Iceberg appearances so there.
Keep 'em peeled.

They loaned their guitars - that's good enough excuse in itself!

Good ruling Allan. Therefore all my London Country footage will be added to this thread as and when there is any!

Great, I always liked those green RTs!

Right. Don't get excited - the videos for the next two only consist of stills of record sleeves - however, it is from 1797 and features rather slick performances from four fifths of the original Manband....

Yes.
To find out why, we need to go back in time. To do this, we need a time machine. I have one here, a powerful Nationsounds/TK Maxx/Mothercare creation. You could say it was a 'joint' project. So relax, and here we go.....cue swirls of dry ice and the BBC Radiophonic workshop.....

PING! (The scene - The Bystanders Recording Session, 1797)

MIGUEL: Yea verily forsooth! Thy hast wrought a goode bottom ende from that blow!
I CLINTIUS: Gadzooks! He hast!
VICTORIOUS OAK: I'm fedde up.
GEOFFRYE: Dost thou shampoo contain jojoba?
RAYMONDUS: Holde On! Who be this that approacheth?
MIGUEL: Why it is ye David Edmundos, count of Mandrax!
I CLINTIUS: In that case we must tarry no more. Hide all the wette towels, for otherwise he will certainly wrought our high frequencies!
MIGUEL: With alacrity!
RAYMONDUS: Your wisdom is justified, Clintius. I also fear the snare and kicke will have their walloppe removed and sound akin to cardboard!
I CLINTIUS: In that case, let us locke him in this Ikea Cupboard with Victorious!
MIGUEL: Sorted!

(Enter David Edmundos)

DAVID EDMUNDOS: Greetings, I....oof!

(He is bundlest into cupboard with Victorious)

MIGUEL, I CLINTIUS, RAYMONDOS, GEFFRYE: Ha! Our session is saved and soundest Boom Shanka!

VICTORIOUS: Now I'm really, really fedde up....

Many thanks for these Mr N. On viewing the record sleeves whilst listening to the music something seemed familar to me. Dug out all my Bystanders singles and low and behold the picture of the Bystanders Spanish release 98.6 is the one I have, pen mark and all. Signed by a very young Micky Jones, I'd make him about nineteen or twenty at the time.

Wahey! That's great, John.

Some more clips....stepping in for an injured TW in 1971 was Ron Howden, who was normally in the employ of Mssrs Nektar, who don't sound like Man at all.

I wish they'd just stuck the OGWT clip up as it was - is this available anywhere?

Not that I'm aware, Rob - but when have you known me to be aware? Rest assured the powerful Nationsounds Bloodhounds have the scent and will not let up....

For today's lesson I have found some clips of Man's 'comeback' gig at The Marquee, 1983. These have been taken from the 'Man Live' DVD - the tie in LP/CD was 'Friday 13th' and features some different tracks to the DVD. The band was required to play something from each era. Man historians/psychologists should bear in mind that this version of the band was, how can I put it, a 'speedier' version and the songs treated accordingly. Nevertheless....

Good find! These must be the ones to which Davey referred earlier. They were recorded on 27 Feb 1974 and were first transmitted on 'Sounds Of The Seventies' on 1 April. 'Blown Away' is a beltingly good version.

Yes - it was always as if someone was waving a chequered flag during C'Mon.

However - Talk About A Morning must rate as one of the best vocal performances Micky ever gave....

Yes, Talk about a morning is great. From this era I also like the way they played Kerosene.
And yes, although there were special songs like Back into the future (and rare songs like Asylum, Back together again and Even visionaries go blind)
"classical" songs like Romain, C'mon, BITTF, Bananas and Ride and the view were played too much fast and the drums too much uncomplicated.

Absolutely. The Man repertoire is large. Due to the number of players involved, many different influences and interpretations have been presented. This can be good. It can also be not so good.

Being primarily a bassist,  I tend to look at this aspect first - for example, what a joy it was to hear John McKenzie's playing on 'Something Is Happening'. When this song was brought back into the set, however, Martin was back on bass and (correctly) played it in his way....but for me, it really lost something bass wise. This is not a criticism of his ability, in fact I think MA is a far better bassist than he is often given credit for - it's just that it wasn't really in his style. Similarly, when JM played 'Spunk Rock', I thought the reverse.

My overall feeling since the comeback was that there was just too much compromising. This is normally quite a good quality and has always been a feature of the various line-ups, but I think from this point they exceeded the limit. It's almost as if it would be a good idea if there were two strains of the Manband - one doing the more crunchy stuff, the other doing the more considered stuff, for want of a better cliche. Otherwise, they might end up holding  each other back until something snaps. Let 'em flow to do their natural thing! It may be a painful break at first, but I reckon it would be for the best!

Of course, this will never happen.

Depends who George gets on bass...
