Manfred Mann’s Earth Band are an English rock band formed by South African musician Manfred Mann. The band’s hits include covers of Bruce Springsteen’s “For You”, “Blinded by the Light” and “Spirit in the Night”. After forming in 1971 and despite a short hiatus in the late 1980s/early 1990s, the Earth Band continues to perform and tour through the present.

The Roaring Silence is an album released in 1976 by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. Like other Earth Band albums, this includes material by other composers. “Blinded by the Light”, which reached number one in Billboard’s Hot 100, is a cover version of a song by Bruce Springsteen; “Questions” is based on the main theme of Franz Schubert’s Impromptu in G flat Major; “Starbird” takes its theme from Igor Stravinsky’s ballet The Firebird. This album also marked the arrival of vocalist/guitarist Chris Hamlet Thompson.
