Damanek - On Track album review
Friends united for Guy Manning’s new project
Guy Manning has become something of a latter-day prog legend. As ‘Manning’ he managed to serve up an album every year for the best part of 15 years, including stand-outs like Anser’s Tree and Margaret’s Children. His early association with The Tangent earned him significant props during a period when prog was genuinely out-of-fashion. His combination of Al Stewart-influenced storytelling and complex arrangements has already ensured an honoured place in the pantheon. His new project Damanek deserves to push him into wider exposure.
