Manhattan Transfer

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

The thinking man's Stutz Bear Cats were more likely to be seen on Seaside Special than the pop charts but that didn't stop Manhattan Transfer having a number one single with "Chanson D'Amour" in 1977. Several lesser chart entries followed as their nostalgic sound drifted out of fashion.

    I didn't relise that they were Yanks, I thought they were English! The band have actually had 3 line-ups, with Tim Hauser being the only constant member throughout their different incarnations, although they've stayed pretty much the same since '73 (apart from Cheryl Bentine's appearance in '78 to replace another female member who was badly injured in a car crash). I used to fancy Janis Sigel like anything when I was little! They used to make regular appearances on the adult literacy TV programme 'On The Move', providing entertainment breaks during the show. In 2008, they were inducted int the Music Hall of Fame.

    Chanson D'amour, always makes me think of balmy summer days. I use to put it on the juke box in a local pub during the summer of 1977.
