"For the first time on CD since its release in 1983, this long out of print and forgotten masterpiece from the men who brought us such stellar hits as "Kiss and Say Goodbye" and "Shining Star," find The Manhattans sliding into more "current" (for THAT time) territory by employing the (then) hitmaking production of Morrie Brown (Paul Laurence Jones & Kashif) with their big hit, "Crazy." Known chiefly for "dripping with soul balladry," it was a treat to actually hear them try their hand at some more uptempo fare and the result was not only classy, but hit-worthy! Another key cut here is "Locked Up in Your Love." An awesome album from the legendary Manhattans, 80's style. Sadly, it would feature their last charting hit in the aforementioned first single, "Crazy" which made the R&B Top Ten."
