Why Should We Not? | Manfred Mann

Manfred Mann were a British pop band of the 1960s named after their South African keyboard player. The group debuted in July of 1963 with the jazzy instrumental single Why Should We Not?, which failed to chart, as did the follow up Cock-A-Hoop. After a further self-penned hit (Hubble Bubble (Toil And Trouble)) the band struck gold with Do Wah Diddy Diddy.

Later evolutions of Manfred Mann were Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Manfred Mann Chapter Three, Manfred Mann's Plain Music, and The Manfreds (Manfred Mann's 1991 reunion line up with all orginal members except Manfred Mann).
