4 stars Ever own one of those albums that you just can't believe others have not really listened to enough or not discovered the true inner charm and beauty of? That is exactly the case with MANFRED MANN's "Chance". This is an album I just love from side 1 to the end of side 2. "Chance" was also the last of the 70's Classic MANFRED MANN And His Electric Band albums and is literally a product of 1979 and 1980 writing and recording. This album is a wonderful mix of part prog, part 70's artrock and part pop. On the recording of this album Mann tried to keep the old band intact but had to suppliment with some new members. It might be the most inconsistent of all his 70's albums, butit still works cohesively for me. Long standing lead Chris Thompson only sings on 3 tracks and Trevor Rabin steps in for guitar duties. This is far far too underrated an album and a vintage one at that which is still waiting to be discovered. ...Come on take a "Chance"
