Album Review

Like Sony's other Love Songs compilations, this one runs the risk of overlapping too much with greatest-hits discs for some consumers' tastes. Seven of the 13 tracks here are on The Best of the Manhattans: Kiss and Say Goodbye, which, like Love Songs, surveys their recordings from the 1970s and early 1980s for Columbia. Still, this collection does retrieve three R&B chart singles that eluded The Best of the Manhattans...: "We Never Danced to a Love Song," "Girl of My Dream," and "The Way We Were/Memories." The disc is filled out by a couple of album tracks and their 1972 single "A Million to One," which was actually on the Deluxe label.

Customer Reviews

Looks like I'm first !

If you buy any song on this album, buy "Shining Star". It's a great old love song.

They always leave one off (on purpose, I think)

I love the Manhattans. My favs are tracks 1,2,3,4,and 10. But why is "There's No Me Without You" missing? I'm telling you, they do it on purpose! :-) Great compilation.

stars

if you are not 40 or more just about any song from there greatest hit are great....you have to listen to the songs first before you rate then

Biography

Formed: 1962 in Jersey City, NJ

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The Manhattans were one of those classic R&B vocal groups who manage to achieve incredible career longevity by adapting their style to fit changing times. Formed in the '60s as a doo wop-influenced R&B quintet, the Manhattans reinvented themselves as sweet smooth soul balladeers during the '70s. In doing so, they somehow overcame the death of lead singer George Smith, and with new frontman Gerald Alston became more popular than they'd ever been, landing an across-the-board number one hit...
