There's no annotation to speak of on this track collection, but little is needed, as this particular group's work speaks for itself. This is a smooth and impressive cross-section of the renowned vocal group's work across the first six years of its successful "reincarnation" -- nothing of the original late-'60s quartet is here, apart from the newer group's successful reworking of "Java Jive" near the end of the disc.
But basically this album moves from strength to strength, in something of Obey - Crites - Crites jumble in terms of original release order -- the live "Tuxedo Junction," the Body And Soul - The Manhattan Transfer - The Best Of The Manhattan Transfer single "Boy from New York City," their stylized homage to Marius Constant 's not Bernard Herrmannas erroneously listed on the composer's credit "Twilight Zone" theme, the soaring "Body and Soul," the doo wop homage "Gloria," etc.
