Jones then went on to be the vocalist and harmonica player of the successful 1960s group Manfred Mann.He had several Top Ten hits with Manfred Mann before going solo in July 1966. He remained with His Master’s Voice.
He was less successful without the band than they were with his replacement, but did have a few hits, notably with “High Time” (1966) and “I’ve Been a Bad, Bad Boy” and “Thinkin’ Ain’t for Me” (both 1967) before attempting to branch into acting. While his solo recording career was barely successful in the UK, it never got off the ground in the US. He did have enough hits in Sweden however to have a greatest hits album released there on EMI.
