Two of the Manhattans' Columbia albums -- 1979's Love Talk and 1981's Black Tie -- are combined on this set from the U.K.'s Expansion label. Unlike most two-for-one releases, this doesn't consist of albums originally released consecutively; throughout the years, 1980's After Midnight, a gold seller, has been granted separate reissues. These two albums peaked, respectively, at number 20 and number 21 on Billboard's R&B chart. "Just One Moment Away," from the later release, cracked the R&B Top 20 and is the most popular song here. Otherwise, there is a handful of standout cuts among a fair portion of merely decent and substandard material. The set will be of interest to serious Manhattans fans only.
