✨✧ ManhattansAfter Midnight ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Stellar Manhattans from the start of the 80s – and proof that the group could still hold strong, even at a point when soul music was really changing up around them! The sound is somewhat smoother than before, but never in a throwaway style – and as you might guess from the title, the record's a mostly-mellow affair that really hones in on the great ballad style that the group had perfected during their time at Columbia! The vocals are superb – not nearly as fragile as in the early days, but really still filled with a great sense of warmth and humanity – the group really maturing into a special space of their own. Arrangements are by James Mack, Benjamin Wright, Bert DeCoteux, and others – and titles include the hit "Shining Star", plus "It's Not The Same", "Just As Long As I Have You", "If My Heart Could Speak", "One Life To Life", "The Closer You Are", and "Girl Of My Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a promo stamp.)

ManhattansManhattans Sing For You & Yours ... LP
Carnival, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Great harmony soul from the Manhattans – a second volume of the Manhattans' best early work for the Carnival label! Classic 60s harmony soul, with a seminal approach that brought the best elements of rougher R&B into a tightly arranged and performed package of sophisticated urban soul. A dozen numbers in all, including "I Call It Love", "I Bet'Cha", "Sweet Little Girl", "There Goes A Fool", "Alone On New Years Eve", "All I Need Is Your Love", "I Wanna Be", "When We're Made As One", "Call Somebody Please", "For The Very First Time", "It's That Time Of Year" and "Baby I'm Sorry". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s Japanese pressing – with obi! Back cover has some very light aging, but front is great.)

✨✧ ManhattansIt Feels So Good ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real classic from The Manhattans – and just the kind of record to show why the group stayed so great after all the years! The ballads are wonderful – arguably even better than the group's indie label days – with a depth of feeling, fullness of harmonies, and magical balance between the rough and the smooth! Bobby Martin produced, using a sophisticated Philly mode, but one that's never overdone – cool and confident, but never too brash at all. A few of the groovers are a bit mellow – nicely stepping around a midtempo mode that still allows lots of vocal power – and titles include "I Kinda Miss You", "Let's Start It All Over Again", "It's You", "Mind Your Business", "Too Much For Me To Bear", and "It Just Can't Stay This Way". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed copy, with a cutout hole and a Nice Price sticker.)

✨✧ ManhattansManhattans Sing For You & Yours – Golden Carnival Classics Part 2 (Collectables pressing) ... LP
Carnival/Collectables, 1968. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heck of a great 60s soul album – one that we'd rank right up there with the best by the Impressions from the time – perfectly put together without a bit of filler! The set's the second full length set by The Manhattans – one of the few groups of their time who could really pull off such an all-original set without a lot of outside help. The tracks are all wonderfully fresh – and run from beautiful mellow harmony numbers to some harder, more fast-stomping upbeat dancefloor tunes! Titles include "I Wanna Be", "I Call It Love", "Sweet Little Girl", "I Betcha", "All I Need Is Your Love", "It's That Time Of Year", and "For The Very First Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 90s issue. Cover has two bumped corners on top.)

✨✧ ManhattansMillion To One ... LP
DeLuxe, 1972. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Manhattans really hit a deep new level of sound on this early 70s set – a record that takes off strongly from their early singles, and really paves the way for their more sophisticated sounds to come during the Columbia Records hit years! The quintet are completely sublime here – fused wonderfully together on the harmonies, at a level that beats most of their east coast contemporaries – yet still getting a nice sort of indie approach in the production, which means that things are never too commercial – and the group can really open up and do their thing! There's a few badass tracks that fit with the group's Superfly look on the cover – but as always, some of our favorites are the mellow cuts – which these guys can almost do better than anyone else. Titles include "I Can't Stand for You To Leave Me", "Do You Ever", "Back Up", "Million to One", and "Cry If You Wanna Cry". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring and edge wear and a hype sticker.)

✨✧ ManhattansWith These Hands ... LP
DeLuxe, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real lost chapter in the career of The Manhattans – some wonderful harmony sides cut for the Deluxe label in the years before they moved to Columbia! The approach here is sweeter than their work on Carnival, but jazzier than their sides for Columbia – with arrangements by Chico O'Farrill, production by Buddy Scott, and an overall approach to the material that really lets their magical harmonies open up on some nice groovers, and some even more compelling mellow moments! There's a nice groove to the material – which makes for some slightly funky numbers at times – and titles include "Give Him Up", "It's Gonna Take A Lot To Bring Me Back", "Loneliness", "Straight From My Heart", and "If My Heart Could Speak". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is lightly stained along the bottom and at the bottom right corner, with some waviness and flaking.)

✨✧ ManhattansBlack Tie ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A black tie affair, but a set that's still got all the great vocal touches of The Manhattans firmly in place – thanks to careful Chicago production from Leo Graham and arranger James Mack! The set's smooth, but never in a sloppily commercial way – and instead, the pair find a way to continue to elevate The Manhattans way past their roots – that rich new territory they plumbed while working at Columbia Records, on albums like this which really helped the older vocal group tradition find a new groove for the 80s. Mellow moments mix nicely with a few midtempo groovers – and titles include "Just One Moment Away", "You Stand Out", "Let Your Love Come Down", "Honey Honey", "I Wanta Thank You", "Deep Water", and "When I Leave Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing, PC 37156. Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ ManhattansLove Talk ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
Late 70s – but The Manhattans are still sounding great! The album's got a wonderful blend of mellow harmony tracks and fuller, more upbeat Philly-styled tunes – all very much in the spirit of the group's first few albums for Columbia, and handled with a similar level of skill. The group had one of the most compelling, richest harmony styles of any 70s mainstream group – and if anything, the more they recorded, the more they made magic in the studio. Titles include "Devil In The Dark", "After You", "Love Talk", "We Tried", "That's Not Part Of The Show", "New York City", and a surprisingly palatable version of "The Way We Were/Memories". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light staining on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ ManhattansToo Hot To Stop It ... CD
CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A different sound than the Manhattans of the 70s – but a set that's still got some wonderful harmonies throughout! The production has a modern sort of 80s crackle – more beats and keyboards than before, but also some standout acapella moments that hearken back to an old school style of group soul that even predates the first recordings by The Manhattans back in the 60s. This mix of modern and classic really gives the album some weight – and is balanced out nicely through the set list – with tracks that include "Don't Say No", "Angel Of The Night", "You Send Me", "C'Est La Vie", "Dreamin", "Too Hot To Stop It", and "When We Are Made As One".
