ManhattansDo You Ever/If My Heart Could Speak ... 7-inch
DeLuxe, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Heartbreaking harmony from the Manhattans! "Do You Ever" is a dreamy ballad sung by a guy who's asking if his ol' gal ever thinks of him – and "If My Heart Could Speak" is more of the same, the sad tale of a heart that can't express itself freely, longing for a lady that's too far out of reach! The sound's a lot rawer than their later work – with a good east coast indie feel to both tracks. 7-inch, Vinyl record

ManhattansDoing Their Best Things ... LP
Up Front, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Great collection of some of the best early work by this legendary vocal group. Most of these sides were originally recorded for the Carnival label, and appeared on rare early singles by The Manhattans. The tracks are fantastic, with a harmony vocal sound that was hardly matched by other groups of the time, and a production style that used some very dope instrumentation. Includes the sublime "Follow Your Heart", plus "Call Somebody Please", "Baby I Need You", "I Wanna Be (Your Everything)", and "Can I?". LP, Vinyl record album

ManhattansGreatest Hits ... CD
Columbia, 1970s. Used ... $3.99
The Manhattans were one of those groups who knocked around for years in the indie soul world – cutting some fantastic material early on, but then losing direction for a number of years until they sprung forth as a huge act for Columbia during the early 70s. By that time, the band had more than polished their harmonies – coming up with an incredible style that was sweet and smooth, yet still undeniably soulful and human, especially on the ballads that were their specialty. Titles on this set include "Kiss & Say Goodbye", "Hurt", "There's No Me Without You", "It Feels So Good To Be Loved So Bad", "We Never Danced To A Love Song", and "Do You Really Mean Goodbye". CD

ManhattansToo Hot To Stop It ... CD
CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy ... $10.99
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".

✨✧ ManhattansSweet Talking Soul – 1965 to 1990 (3CD set) ... CD
Shout Factory, 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Sweet talking, soulful harmonies wonderful work from the mighty Manhattans – their hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s in one great package from Shout Factory! For as long as the Manhattans kept at it, and kept spinning out top notch work, it's a bit surprising that their somewhat underappreciated in the r&b and soul canon. Shout Factory to the rescue, with this 3CD set – with the excellent harmony rich r&b work of the mid to late 60s, the sophisticated string laden tunes of the 70s, and the more polished 80s work all in one place! The harmonies are impeccable throughout, and this kind of retrospective is as welcome as it is overdue! 45 tracks on 3 CDs: "I Wanna Be (Your Everything)", "Searching For My Baby", "Baby I Need You", "If My Heart Could Speak", "Cry If You Wanna Cry", "Back Up", "There's No Me Without You", "Do You Ever", "Am I Losing You", "Here Comes The Hurt Again", "Shining Star", "Honey, Honey", "Crazy", "Forever By Your Side", "Why You Wanna Love Me Like That", "I Won't Stop" and much more.

✨✧ MasqueradersEverybody Wanna Live On ... CD
Hot Buttered Soul/Stax (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic mid 70s sounds from The Masqueraders! Everybody Wanna Live On may very well be the best album ever by this sweet southern vocal group – produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, who'd always had a big hand in the group's sound. The record's got a style that reminds us of mid 70s Manhattans, but perhaps with more of an edge on some of the vocals, especially on the more uptempo tracks. Includes the great cut "Please Don't Try (To Take Me Away To The Sky)", with a nice electric piano groove and funky vocals, plus "(Call Me) The Traveling Man", "Sweet Sweetning", "Baby It's You", "Everybody Wanna Live On", and "Your Sweet Love Is A Blessing".

✨✧ VariousCarnival Northern Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer cuts from Carnival Records – a New Jersey indie from the 60s that turned out some mighty wonderful music! Carnival's possibly best known as the original home of The Manhattans, before their later fame at Columbia – but back in the mid 60s, the label was a hotbed of activity – and recorded a whole host of really great artists, most of whom are featured on this set! As you'd guess from the Northern Soul title, the package focuses on upbeat groovers from Carnival – the kind of hard-hitting soul tracks that bubbled under in the American underground in the 60s, but finally got their due later, as overseas collectors picked up on their genius. The set's overflowing with really wonderful cuts – and we'll be honest in saying that in all our years of crate digging, there's loads of numbers here we've never been able to find in good shape. Titles include "Little Miss Soul" by The Lovettes, "Wishes" by The Metrics, "I Wanna Be Your Everything" by The Pretenders, "Hey Girl" by The Topics, "Love Has Passed Me By" by Phil Terrell, "Lost Love" by Lee Williams & The Cymbals, "Please Come Back" by Harry Caldwell, "I'll Catch You On The Rebound" by Leon & The Metronomes, "Why Did She Lie" by Vick & John, "I Call It Love" by The Pretenders, "I Say Yeah" by The Pets, "My Love Is Yours Tonight" by The Turner Brothers, "Me Myself & I" by Norma Jenkins, and "Leave Me If You Want To" by Curby Goggins.
