Retro Vinyl Find: The Manhattan Transfer Live (Atlantic Records, 1978)

"Chanson D'Amour, Brat a tat a tat!" those words still haunt me some 35 years on from originally hearing them performed by The Manhattan Transfer in 1978.

So different from the punks and disco divas of the 1970s The Manhattan Transfer recalled the sounds and styles of decades previous in songs such as Operator and Tuxedo Junction.

The group also gained a music guest spot on the 1978 series of The Two Ronnies ensuring that they gained maximum exposure in the UK for their recordings on a top light entertainment show.

Therefore with such fond memories, I couldnt resist this recent 20p charity shop find - great stuff!
