Manfred Mann - The Jack Bruce Sessions

While researching for the Cream "Like a Bearded Rainbow" set, this was put together so I could look at Bruce's short time with MM. At the time they were a (moderately) successful band with a long-ish career and installed Jack Bruce as their musical director/visionary.  The time Jack spent with MM was only a few months and ended when he joined Cream. Here in the States, MM didn't really register much in our consciousnesses, at least on the West Coast, but results of compiling these were so fascinating, I had to share it! All @320, tagged with original art and sequenced in the order originally released. Worth a listen, probably not the Manfred Mann that you'd expect.
