Ginell rnThe idea on Tonin\' was to turn the Manhattan Transfer loose on a baker\'s dozen of good old 1960s pop and R&B hits in league either with the original artists or prominent guests from that period and beyond. And yes, it\'s a stellar list, guaranteed to stir warm and fuzzy memories, and the tunes echo the old lament of an earlier age, "they don\'t write songs like they used to." For almost any other vocal group, this would be an entertaining coup, yet for the hugely gifted, compulsively adventurous Transfer, this is just a detour into the tent of nostalgia that they had long outgrown (though they would do better in the retro arena with 1997\'s buoyant Swing). Moreover, they really have nothing new to bring to these tunes; they serve as background singers to Smokey Robinson on his "I Second That Emotion," to Felix Cavaliere on his "Groovin\'," or — good grief — Phil Collins subbing for Marvin Gaye on "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby." Indeed, "The Thrill Is Gone" can serve as its own epitaph; even with B.B. King\'s authentic guitar obbligato and Ruth Brown\'s rap, the Transfer\'s smooth vocal harmonies turn this gritty blues into pap. However gutsy Arif Mardin\'s productions were in Atlantic\'s 1960s heyday, he just goes through the crisp-sounding motions here. rn rnTracksrnrn1 Let\'s Hang On 4:41rnComposed by: Crewe, Linzer, RandellrnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Frankie Vallirnrn2 Groovin\' 4:09rnComposed by: Brigati, CavalierernPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Felix Cavalierernrn3 It\'s Gonna Take a Miracle 3:56rnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Bette Midlerrnrn4 I Second That Emotion 3:40rnComposed by: Cleveland, RobinsonrnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Smokey Robinsonrnrn5 La-La (Means I Love You) 4:36rnComposed by: Bell, HartrnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Laura Nyrornrn6 Too Busy Thinking About My Baby 4:44rnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Phil Collinsrnrn7 The Thrill Is Gone 6:07rnComposed by: Darnell, HawkinsrnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Ruth Brown, King, Ben E.rnrn8 Hot Fun in the Summertime 4:17rnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, Chaka Khanrnrn9 Along Comes Mary Almer 3:34rn10 Dream Lover 4:53rnComposed by: DarinrnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, James Taylorrnrn11 Save the Last Dance for Me 4:05rnComposed by: Pomus, ShumanrnPerformed by: Manhattan Transfer, King, Ben E.rnrn12 God Only Knows (Asher, Wilson) 2:46rnrnReleasesrnrn1995 CD Atlantic 82661rn1995 CS Atlantic 82661rn1995 CS Atlantic 82661rn rnCorey Allen Vocal Arrangement rnMichael Baird Drums rnCheryl Bentyne Vocals rnHerb Besson Trombone rnRuth Brown Vocals, Performer rnRobbie Buchanan Synthesizer, Keyboards rnJorge Casas Bass, Arranger, Horn Arrangements rnLenny Castro Percussion rnFelix Cavaliere Vocals, Performer rnPhil Collins Vocals, Performer rnLuis Conte Percussion rnPaulinho Da Costa Percussion rnTim Hauser Vocals, Vocal Arrangement rnJim Hines Trumpet rnChris Hunter Saxophone rnPaul Jackson, Jr. Guitar rnJimmy Johnson Bass rnRandy Kerber Synthesizer, Keyboards rnChaka Khan Vocals, Performer rnB.B.
