“Don’t Kill It Carol”

It’s a testament to the sonorous signature of the mighty Manfred Mann that, with only a single Earth Band album lodged theretofore into my mental faculty (The Roaring Silence from 1976), I was able to identify the performer of this striking recording when it flicked at me from an Amsterdam radio channel back in 1995. That knob-skewed synth confetti in the middle is what cinched the ID, for I recognized that striking tone from those immortal marvels of The Roaring Silence, “This Side of Paradise” and “Starbird”. With the curious title of this following track lodged firmly into my mind, I promptly purchased its parent album, Angel Station, upon my return to the States.
