Insgesamt wohl ein Beitrag von Manfred Mann gegen die Apartheidspolitik in seinem Heimatland Südafrika. Wieder mit einigen Coverversionen(Al Stewart, Bob Marley, Police). Und covern konnte er wie kaum ein anderer. Sämtliche Cover der Earth Band tragen eine eigene Handschrift und sind in fast allen Fällen besser als die Originale.

die Covers sind schon ziemlich gut, der rest allerdings weniger..

In den 70er Jahren lief das Projekt Manfred Mann’s Earth Band auf Hochtouren und brannte so einige musikalische Feuerwerke ab, die m.E. ihre Höhepunkte in den Alben „Solar Fire“ (1973), „The Good Earth“ (1974), „The Roaring Silence“ (1976) und „Angel Station“ (1979) sowie den Hits „Joybringer“, „Blindet By The Light“, „Spirits In The Night“, „Davy’s On The Road Again“, „Don’t Kill It Carol“ und „You Angel You“ fand. Die 80er Jahre begannen gut mit dem ausgezeichneten, Ende 1980 veröffentlichten Album „Change“ und dem Hit „For You“. Knapp zwei Jahre ließen sich Manfred und seine Musiker für das Nachfolgealbum „Somewhere In Afrika“ Zeit. Manfred Mann suchte nach neuen musikalischen Inspirationen, die er seiner Meinung nach in der afrikanischen Musik fand. Mit der Kombination aus weißer Rockmusik und Elementen der traditionellen afrikanischen Musik hatten in der Vergangenheit schon Osibisa oder, 1981, Mick Fleetwood bemerkenswerte Platten eingespielt.
„Somewhere In Afrika“ ist als Gesamtwerk betrachtet eine interessante Angelegenheit, auch wenn es mit den guten Werken der letzten 10 Jahre nicht ganz mithalten kann. Man merkt, daß Manfred im Umgang mit der afrikanischen Musik noch nicht ganz so stilsicher war. Was kein Vorwurf ist, denn mit dem Umgang von Elementen „fremdartiger“ Musik bedarf es einiges an Zeit, um damit umgehen zu können. Deshalb wirkt Seite 2 mit der „Africa Suite“ etwas unausgegoren, die in einer meiner Meinung nach völlig mißratenen Version des Bob Marley Titels „Redemption Song“ ihren negativen Höhepunkt findet. Allerdings muß man sagen, daß abgesehen von diesem Titel die gesamte zweite Seite viele interessante Ansatzpunkte hat, die zum Teil sehr gekonnt westliche Rockmusik mit traditioneller afrikanischer Musik verbindet.
Richtig gut sind Manfred und seine Mannen dann, wenn sie das spielen, was sie am besten können. Das beweisen sie auf der ersten Seite mit Titeln wie „Third World Service“ (als Singleauskopplung immerhin ein kleiner Hit in Deutschland), der Al Stewart Komposition „Eyes Of Nostradamus“ und der Police Nummer „Demolition Man“. Hier zeigt sich einmal mehr, wie Manfred schon in der Vergangenheit geradezu selbstsicher mit Fremdkompositionen umgeht und ihnen eine eigene Note verleiht. Die erste Seite wird abgerundet mit „Tribal Statics“ und „Brothers And Sisters Of Azania“.
Alles in allen ist „Somewhere In Afrika“ ein sehr gutes Album, bei dem man Manfreds Mut zu neuen musikalischen Wegen einfach anerkennen muß. Allerdings kommt man nicht umher um festzustellen, das „Somewhere In Afrika“ das letzte gute Album ist, das er und seine Gruppe eingespielt hat. Alles was danach kam, kann man getrost vergessen.
****
Bin nicht so der Fan afrikanischer Musik, aber o.k. ist das Album.
