HAPPY THE MAN biography One of the finest American prog bands. Completely out of the American standards, HAPPY THE MAN combined lush melodies, great complex interplay and a slightly jazzy touch with occasional vocals. The band claims to be influenced by Genesis, Yes, and Gentle Giant although they really do not sound anything like any of those bands, but actually closer to the Canterbury sound and such bands like Soft Machine and Hatfield and the North.
HAPPY THE MAN is a jazz related rock music artist. Death's Crown CUNEIFORM RECORDS 2017. Retrospective East Side Digital 1989. 3rd CUNEIFORM RECORDS 2017.
Happy The Man's first album (the second of theirs I owned) was not quite as cohesive at "Crafty Hands", but every bit as good an album. Released in 1977, the album came out right when the major labels were conspiring with the journalists they owned to make truly creative music "uncool". Therefore, these albums went unpromoted and largely unknown to all but a few of us. This debut introduced us to HTM's unique blend of fusion and symphonic prog.
Happy The Man - Discography (1977-2004). Riddle appeared on HTM's second (and most acclaimed) album, Crafty Hands, but although he was a full member for the duration of the process, even contributing the album's striking opening track, "Service With A Smile" (co-written with The Cars' keyboard player Greg Hawkes, in 1973), he left before he had played a single gig with HTM.

I was a young man and I lived in a modest apartment in London near Victoria Station. Late one afternoon, when I was beginning to think that I had worked enough for that day, I heard a ring at the bell. I opened the door to a total stranger. The novel under analysis is entitled The Happy Man. It is written by Somerset Maugham. The main character is the narrator. There is no any information about his appearance in the text. The only one thing about his age is the information that he was a young man when he advised well. Nevertheless we can judge about his character from his thoughts, behavior and speech. The description of his character is indirect. He is a wise man: he knows that it is impossible to know another persons as well as oneself to give him/her advice which would be good for him/her.
Happy the Man recorded their first album under the production supervision of Ken Scott (who had worked with Supertramp and David Bowie). Featuring excellent pieces such as 'Mr. Mirror's Reflection on Dreams' and 'New York Dreams Suite', the album ranks as one of the great American Progressive rock albums. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.
