PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Definately, at least to me, an improvement over their debut, this was finally the EARTH BAND that found their sound. No more of that New Orleans-type of stuff here, this is definately a more progressive album. Having been familiar with "Solar Fire" for much longer than I had this one, I am amazed how several of the songs on this album reminds me of "Solar Fire". For example, "Meat", which features Chris Slade doing the same kind of drumming as he would later do on "Earth, the Circle Part 2". "Look Around", "Our Friend George" and "I'm Gonna Have You All" all sound like they could fit nicely on "Solar Fire". I really like some of those heavy guitar solo found on "Look Around". The band also did a couple more "down to earth" numbers here. One was "Down Home", with a rather down home feel, almost like The BAND. The other being "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue", a Bob DYLAN song which was pretty much what you expect on an EARTH BAND album up until 1975.

Also you get a re-recording of a MANFRED MANN Chapter III song, "One Way Glass" (originally on their 1969 debut), but of course this version has all the horns removed and done in the EARTH BAND fashion (including a Moog solo at the end). I own the American LP which has a black cover with the EARTH BAND logo (this was the first EARTH BAND album to feature that logo), rather than white like you expect on the British version on the Philips label. This is probably my second favorite EARTH BAND album outside of "Solar Fire".

3 stars This is my first album with manfred mann. The whole impression was good, but the albut is more blues than prog. That is not a bad thing but the tracks witch define the future sound of manfred Mann is Wind and Glorified magnified. Not a bad album but neither one of the best of them. 3 stars.

2 stars One year before

Released in 1972, the same year as their first album, this the band's second release retains the original line up including vocalist Mick Rogers. The early trademark of a Dylan (or Springsteen) cover version is complemented by the first appearance of the band's trademark logo.

The opening "Meat" reminds us (in retrospect) that we shall have to wait a little longer for the band to reveal their true prog credentials, the song being a brash piece of blues rock in the style of bands such as Ten Years After. The basic rhythm is very pop orientated, the sort bands like Mud would become proud of. "Look around" retains much of the TYA feel, but is a slightly slower and more powerful piece with screaming synths and some fine guitar work.

"One way glass" introduces the softer side of the band, the lyrics telling a touching tale of isolation and withdrawal. The song suits Rogers voice well, complemented by a fine instrumental arrangement. There is no feature track on the album as such. At a shade over 5 minutes, "I'm gonna have you all" is the longest track. The song reverts to the upbeat blues rock of "Meat" with a similar catchy rhythm.

The second side of the album has six short songs. These range from the inconsequential, such as the Southern rock tinged "Down home", to the indicators to the future in "Wind" and the title track.

The cover of Dylan's "It's all over now baby blue" is rather at odds with the rest of the album, and is largely devoid of the transformation we have been led to expect. This acoustic rendition is pretty much faithful to the original.

In all, an enjoyable but largely undistinguished set which incorporates some pointers to the direction the band will take. Overall, the album has the feeling of being under-developed, and crying out for stronger production.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars This album starts as a deeply blues oriented one.

Noisy and pointless with "Meat", heavy bluesy with "Look Around" whose second part sounds more inspired. Good guitar work and solid backing band during the instrumental part. But this album doesn't really kick off.

The straight forward rock "I'm Gonna You All" is not bad per se, but has little to offer. Vocals are average (as during the other songs) and thanks to its very good beat, this song stands out so far. Some improvisation for "Our Friend George", while the main theme remains in the heavy rock genre. Sub- par "Ten Years After" indeed (as mentioned Easy Livin').

There are hardly great songs featured on this album. It is a dull complaint (hopefully short) almost all the way through. One gets relieved while listening to "It's All Over Now, Baby". Well, almost over since there is still the title track to apprehend.

This one is probably the best one of this record (which is not difficult). More organ oriented than the rest, this instrumental track features a good drumming sequence and a powerful bass play. A good number after all. But this album doesn't hold sufficient to rate it higher than two stars.

Dear old Manfred will do much better later on.

Review by ClemofNazareth
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk Researcher
2 stars The Earth Band's second album was also their only studio release not to chart anywhere in the world, unless you count some of the hodgepodge of records released after the band's de-facto demise in 1987. I suppose the main reason was poor promotion and not enough touring in support of the record, but truth be told it's not really a very good album either so maybe the sales figures are at least partially a reflection of that.

I'm not sure what the band story was at the time of these recording sessions but all indications are they were simply back at Maximum Studios to crank out a follow-up to their self-titled debut that was garnering some minor attention in the U.S. thanks to a surprising amount of FM radio play and a minor hit with the Randy Newman cover "Living Without You". Go figure.

I'm not sure if the band were rushed back into the studio too soon, or if they were not kept there long enough due to touring or other commitments. Either way this feels like a disjointed collection of decent but unexceptional tunes and not at all like a cohesive, well thought-out, career-building release.

The sound is heavier than on their first record, although as time would tell Manfred Mann and especially guitarist Mick Rogers were never ones to shy away from a good heavy riff and supporting organ forays. And the band actually seems to move further away from the progressive rock / experimentation shown a couple times on their first album and quite a bit on the upcoming 'Solar Fire', 'Nightingales & Bombers' and even the underrated 'Watch'. The closest they come is on the closing title track, an orgy of organ (that doesn't sound quite right) along with guitar in an instrumental that recalls the Manfred Mann original "Tribute" from their first album.

At least there are some recognizable and mildly interesting styles interspersed throughout including a bit of toned-down glam rock ("I'm Gonna Have You All"); American country ("Down Home", "Ashes to the Wind"); some sort of weird nuevo-jazz ("Wind"); and even a fairly decent preview of the sort of sappy arena-rock ballads Bret Michael's Poison would make a career from a couple decades later with "One Way Glass".

There were two singles issued from this release. The first was the unconvincing vegetarian anthem "Meat" and the second was (yet another) version of the Bob Dylan classic "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue", a song Dylan first recorded the same day in 1965 that he recorded the iconic version of his "Mr. Tambourine Man". Neither single charted and to the best of my knowledge neither received much radio attention either.

I enjoyed giving this very old vinyl a couple spins for the first time in many years recently. I'm pretty sure I bought my copy from a used record store in the late seventies after discovering the band via their later more commercial work like 'Angel Station' and 'The Roaring Silence'. As I recall I didn't think much of this one back then, and I still don't. That's not to say it's a poor album. The music is decent and there are thousands of bands who would have been thrilled to present something like 'Glorified Magnified'. But the ostentatious title and Manfred Mann's reputation both demand more, and this time at least the band failed to deliver. Things would get better, but for anyone making the trek down Manfred Mann lane I wouldn't pull over for this particular roadside attraction. Two stars for an underachieving album from a very good band.

peace

4 stars My first Earth Band album - just released when I bought it. It's also both my favorite EB LP as well as their best, IMO. Easily more variety here on Glorified Magnified than on any other release of theirs. The band's ace in the hole? Guitarist Mick Rogers, no question. It's not his technique as ... (read more)

5 stars Glorified Magnified was, for my money, the ultimate pinnacle of the Earth Band's achievements. An extraordinary range of styles are in evidence and the band play with fluidity and a great deal more confidence than on their earlier eponymous debut. In truth the subsequent Messin' and Solar Fire ... (read more)
