"The Manhattan Transfer" is the first of four albums to be released by
Tim Hauser, Laurel Massé, Alan Pauland Janis Siegelas The Manhattan Transfer. It was released on April 2, 1975on the Atlantic Recordslabel. It is considered the "debut album", the previous incarnation of the group having recorded only one album ("Jukin'"). The album was produced by Ahmet Ertegünand Tim Hauser.
This incarnation of the group had been together for three years before this album was released. It was at "The Reno Sweeney" where
Ahmet Ertegün, founder and chairman of Atlantic records, attended one of their performances. He offered them a contract, which they accepted.
Shaun Considine reviewed the album in May 1975 for "
The New York Times":
:"Vocally, The Manhattan Transfer is one of the slickest group's on today's market. Their intro number, "Tuxedo Junction", is a precise recreation of the 1940
Glenn Milleroldie, with the group's four part vocal harmonies and jazz riffs supplanting the Miller instrumentals. They have done their homework; they have studied their old 78s in detail. In the honors section, "Blue Champagne", a Dorsey beauty, and "Candy" evoke all of the magic and hazy charm of the 30's and 40's."
"The Manhattan Transfer" debuted on Billboard's Top Pop album chart on
May 3, 1975, reaching #33. The single "Operator" went to #22 on Billboard's Hot 100singles chart.
Tuxedo Junction" reached #24 on the British pop charts.
