"An English Gentleman"

"An English Gentleman" is the second single from the album The Great Western by Manic Street Preachers vocalist/guitarist James Dean Bradfield, released on 25 September 2006 on Columbia Records. The title track pays tribute to the late Manics publicist Philip Hall.[1] Also featured on the CD version of the single is a cover Frank Sinatra's "Summer Wind", Bradfield's favourite song.

The initial pressings of the red 7" single were actually made with black vinyl, some of which were sent out to distributors by mistake.
