This spotlights the biggest records from The Manhattans' second phase. After George "Smitty" Smith died, eventual replacement Gerald Alston brought them a fine heartache and love ballad stylist. The move to a major label in the early '70s also helped, as Columbia provided them much more publicity muscle and promotional assistance than they ever received at Carnival and Deluxe. During the mid-'70s and early '80s, they also earned their first crossover exposure with the #1 hit "Kiss And Say Goodbye," one of the songs featured on this anthology spotlighting their soul and pop hits for Columbia. ~ Ron Wynn
