Five Manfreds In Edinburgh

Man, I love YouTube!

I could easily get lost there anytime I wander to the site, poking around old music videos and a few others things. I think the first thing I ever looked up on YouTube, actually, was the 1973 Belmont Stakes, just to see Secretariat fly once more.

Well, no racehorses here today, just a performance by Manfred Mann from, I would guess, 1964, filmed at the Mecca Palais in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is one of two copies of this performance I found. The other has a voice-over introduction as the band walks to the Mecca Palais, and the announcer tells us all five members of the band have taken the name Manfred. I wonder how long that lasted?

Video deleted.
