7. Man from Manhattan [Original Version][*] - Eddie Howell, Smile
8. Man from Manhattan (Back Again) [*] - Eddie Howell, Smile
Smile were; Tim Staffell (lead vocals / bass), Brian May (lead guitar) and Roger Taylor (drums)Originally released years ago, this collection of pre-Queen material was released (officially) onto C.D.Not much here unless you are a major Queen fan and want to hear the "Queen sound" at it's inception.I never cared much for Staffell's voice...sounds far too close to Robert Smith of The Cure for my liking.The late 60's sci-fi themed "Earth" was Smile's only single but it failed to chart. This little known band opened for Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Yes and the original Genesis. In fact, at the Genesis gig, Peter Gabriel had offered Roger to join his band as the new drummer. Imagine life without Phil Collins! Oh well, we can dream can't we?"The Man From Manhattan" are not Smile songs but instead were recorded by (then and still) unknown Eddie Howell. He had asked Freddie to produce the song but ended up with not only that but backing vocals from Mercury and lead guitar from Brian May!
