Six Degrees of Terry Manning

classictracks4cromwell.l

Maybe you’ve heard of Terry Manning, but I hadn’t until the last couple of years. I picked up his 1969 album “Home Sweet Home” because I liked his raw cover versions of some Beatles songs.

The album’s alright, but surprisingly it’s the least remarkable thing about him.  Manning is a producer, musician, engineer & photographer who had his hands in so many historical moments it’s almost unbelievable.  He’s connected significantly to the careers of: Jimmy Page, Booker T & the MGs, Isaac Hayes, the Box Tops, Leon Russell, James Taylor, Bob Moog, the Staples Singers, ZZ Top & a LOT more.

I can’t say much else that the bio on his official website doesn’t cover.  Read it here and you’ll be amazed at how prolific Terry Manning has been, and how much of what’s reached your ears has his work someplace in it.
