Bassist Pat King left the group in 1982 to be replaced by bassist/guitarist Matt Irving. The title song to 1973's Messin' (written by Mike Hugg and originally recorded by Chapter Three on their unissued third album), as well as most of the 1974 album The Good Earth, tapped into ecological concerns, a recurring theme in Mann's music in later years, with The Good Earth giving away a free gift of a piece of land in Wales with each album sold. Also in 2007, the 1983 Budapest concert was released in DVD format and included tracks not previously available. It's about the life of being a working musician, and being on the road, going on tour again, finding it hard to keep a relationship going because of the demands (and the call) of being on the road.

Taking advantage of the publicity of their hit song, the band re-released another Springsteen song, "Spirit in the Night", re-titled "Spirits in the Night", which the band had released the previous year on Nightingales & Bombers, in a vocally re-cut version with Chris Thompson taking a new lead vocal in place of Mick Rogers' vocal on the original album version.
Keyboardist Manfred Mann started in the 1960s with the self-titled band that had such hits as "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" and Bob Dylan's "The Mighty Quinn" and then moved on to jazz fusion-inspired Manfred Mann Chapter Three before forming the Earth Band in 1971. It is the first album recorded with new bassist Pat King, and the final album for both guitarist Dave Flett and original drummer Chris Slade. Steve Kinch played bass on this album. Most of the band's original albums have been re-released in recent years and a 4-CD set (Odds & Sods - Mis-takes & Out-takes) featuring many previously unissued versions of tracks was released in August 2005. After forming in 1971 and with a short hiatus in the late 1980s/early 1990s, the Earth Band continues to perform and tour. By this time, Mann had become personally active in the international anti-apartheid movement and was banned from entering his home country of South Africa. Watch is the eighth album by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, a studio album with two live tracks released in 1978. Social criticism was also addressed ("Black and Blue" on Messin' dealt particularly with slavery and "Chicago Institute" on Watch with mental institutions and science as a means of social control); a trend which grew throughout the 1980s, with songs such as Lies (Through the 1980s) on technological progress vs. social setbacks on Chance (1980), and with Mann's growing involvement with the anti-apartheid movement which was featured on the 1982 album Somewhere in Afrika. Fox had succumbed to the cancer before finishing. The Earth Band combines the stylistic approach of progressive rock with Mann's jazz-influenced Moog synthesizer playing and keen ear for melody. In 1986 Thompson and King exited the group and Mick Rogers returned with both himself and Thompson appearing on the album Criminal Tango (1986). The Manfred Mann version featured Chris Thompson on lead vocals and Mick Rogers on backing vocals.
