Mike Hugg - Somewhere

Mike Hugg was first known as a founding member of the Mann-Hugg Blues Brothers, who evolved into the 1960's group Manfred Mann. Hugg was a competent pianist and an able vibraphonist, but his basic role in Manfred Mann was that of drummer. He was credited as co-writer of the group's early hits and contributed solo compositions throughout its life, including jazzy instrumentals and wistful acid-pop. When he and Manfred Mann formed the more progressive Manfred Mann's Chapter Three, Hugg moved to electric piano and lead vocals, the latter, by his own account, purely for want of someone better. Mike Hugg released three solo albums in the 1970's, 1972's Somewhere is his first.
