Paul Jones - Crucifix In A Horseshoe 1971 (1991 Repertoire Records) Flac & mp3
As lead singer of Manfred Mann during their early run of hits such as "Doo Wah Diddy Diddy," "Pretty Flamingo," and many, many others, Paul Jones was far more influential than people realize. Artists such as Arthur Lee have cited him as a primary influence, and for that fact alone, he should be recognized. After leaving Mann in 1966, Jones made one of the greatest cult films of all time, 1967's Privilege. This, though, his solo debut, is another step altogether. Always one of the more literate rockers of his era, Jones spends most of his time on this album making fun of stardom and all that goes with it. Hotel rooms, groupies, and the general grind of it all is the subject matter here, and it's all quite a bit of fun.
Paul Jones is one of the greatest (today quite unknown) musicians in the pop business. He was the lead singer in the Manfred Mann Band in the sixties.Before that, in1962 a man called Brian Jones asked him to join in his band for the job as leadsinger. You guys know which band i am talking about, right...However, this is not his first solo album. But it's also a fine one. It's different to his sixties work in some things but it is, like all he have done from a high quality.
Give it a try and
