Flashback: “Blinded By The Light” by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band

If you looked up at the eclipse on Monday (didn’t they tell you not to do that?) and you suddenly have vision problems, this is for you.

This Bruce Springsteen cover (“The Boss” originally record the song in 1973) topped the charts in early 1977 for a week, giving the South African Mann a second number one hit, with “Doo Wah Diddy Diddy” being his first in October of 1964 without the Earth Band.
