More information: Man’s classic 1976 album “Welsh Connection”. Recorded in 1976 following Man’s departure from United Artists records, the album saw a new line-up of the band featuring Micky Jones (Guitar / Vocals), Deke Leonard (Guitar, Vocals), Phil Ryan (Keyboards / Vocals), John McKenzie (Bass) and Terry Williams (Drums). Featuring tracks such as ‘The Ride and the View’, ‘Out of Your Head’, ‘Something is Happening’ and ‘Born With a Future’, the record reached the UK Top 40 and was to be Man’s last studio album of the 1970s.
This release has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features the bonus track “I’m a Love taker”, along with the entire recording of Man’s concert at The Keystone, Berkeley, California on 9th August 1976. The concert also saw guest John Cipollina from Quicksilver Messenger Service join the band on the last four songs of their set.
The release also features a lavishly illustrated booklet with new essay.
