Album Review

Even though this album does not feature any chart-busters, it does have an impressive blend of uptempo and midtempo numbers, along with some sensuous ballads. The only singles spawned by this album are "Here Comes the Hurt Again" and "The Way We Were/Memories." The former is a calm, easy-flowing number augmented by some whispering, yet animated background vocals. The single peaked at #29 on the Billboard R&B charts inside 13 weeks. The latter is a medley rendition of two classic pop ballads. The Manhattans add an inviting, soulful twist to these nostalgic numbers, groomed with Gerald Alston's expansive vocals. It cracked the R&B charts at #33 after 12 weeks. Any one of these vintage R&B numbers could stand alone. Uptempo tracks like the sizzling, soulful title number and the jumpin' "New York City," and ballads like "That's Not Part of the Show" and "Devil in the Dark," are exemplary. Not only does Alston give compelling deliveries, but he does it with versatility. In spite of the lackluster chart action, this is an outstanding album.

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 in 1976...
