    The soulful brilliance of the manhattans

    Hi gang,i'm sitting here diggin the mighty manhattans,and although all of us here know their work,for someone new to their sound it may have started with[kiss and say goodbye]and i cringe when so-called oldies stations only play that one song,this great group has a long and grand music legacy from-searching for my baby-baby i'm sorry-can i-i'm the one that love forgot-i betcha-follow your heart-we are made as one-the boston monkey-baby i need you-i call it love-that new girl-i wanna be-there goes a fool-if my heart could speak-the day the robin sang to me-one life to live..i've always felt that this classic group was always overshadowed by the other great groups of the sixties but make no mistake as we here know,their music stands up to any then and now,and anyone who has seen them live know that they could sing and dance with the best,just a shout out to one of the greatest groups ever-the manhattans!!

    Thanks for that tribute. My introduction to the Manhattans came in junior high school, 1965. I too rememberI'm the one Love Forgot & Can I?.Most of their vinyl albums from 1965 through about 1986 grace my collection, as well as their CDs of the same purchased as they became available.

    Yeah, The Manhattans! I have loads of their albums, and while I'm not even that familiar with them yet, I already like them. My favourite by them so far is "Shining Star". I look forward to getting into them even more with your suggestions, thanks arr&bee

    The Manhattans is one of my favourite groups as well.
    I talked to each member and others related to their music, so whenever you have time, you can get acquainted with their history at:

    He is so great. They had an album in the '70s called Love Talk that was just wonderful. Every song on it was great although I don't know which ones were released. I bought several of their albums after hearing it and they are all criminally underrated. I could listen to the Manhattans all day long.
