Manfred Mann's Earth Band

Plains Music (1991)

Plains Music is an album released in 1992 by Manfred Mann's Plain Music, which was a project initiated by Manfred Mann after he retired his Earth Band in the late 80s.

"This album is called Plains Music, as it consists mainly of the melodies of the North American Plains Indians. We do not pretend that it is in any sense representative of the original ethnic music which was its source material. I tried to make a simple album of plain music, using as few notes as possible and keeping the tracks short and to the point." - Manfred Mann 1991
Mann recorded some of the album in his homeland, which he had been exiled from for nearly three decades because of his opposition to apartheid.

The album was initially released in 1992 and was re-mastered digitally with three additional tracks in 1998.
