Harold Bronson, 'Time Has Come Today' (Trouser Press Books), September 2023

I RECEIVED a letter (dated November 21) from Paul Jones, the original lead singer of Manfred Mann, thanking me for an album I had sent him. I had interviewed him in London, about the history of Manfred Mann, his starring role in Privilege and his recent solo efforts. Of his time in the band, Paul told me he enjoyed performing the blues and R&B songs, but not most of the singles: "I liked 'If You Gotta Go, Go Now' and 'Without You,' and the silly songs that were about the group, like '5-4-3-2-1' and 'The One in the Middle'."
