Produced by Tim Hauser

1976 recording featuring Laurel Masse, their third. We all know the Manhattan Transfer's musicality is impeccable. The collection of songs-all accompanied-range from the Latin "The Speak Up Mambo" to a percussive "Poinciana," featuring a Michael Brecker saxophone solo. "S.O.S," "Helpless" and "Zindy Lou" are guitar driven uptempo pop with guest appearances by Dr. John and Ringo Starr! "Scotch and Soda" has a gorgeous and languid melody, "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference" and "Chanson D'Amour" are easy ballads. "Coming Out" is basically a mainstream production that only hints at the group's later more jazz-oriented sound.
