The ManhattansLyrics Shining Star

The original line up of the Manhattans consisted of George Smith, Richard “Ricky Taylor,” Edward “Sonny” Bivins, Kenny “Wally” Kelley,” and Winfred “Blue” Lovett. The group consisted of students from Lincoln High School and Snyder High School. The group’s development was briefly interrupted, however, as all five original members decided to enlist in the armed forces upon graduation. After being discharged from their respective branches, the group came back together again.

In 1964, Carnival Records released the Manhattans’ first single, “For the First Time.” The single was recorded on the 15th of August that year, a date that many historians regard as the true foundation of the Manhattans. This was the first of many successful Manhattans recordings. Songwriting duties were shared by members of the band.

The albums of the Manhattans include Dedicated to You, With These Hands, A Million to One, There’s No Me Without You, Summertime in the City, That’s How Much I Love You, The Manhattans, It Feels So Good, There’s No Good in Goodbye, Love Talk, After Midnight, Greatest Hits, Black Tie, For You and Yours, Forever By Your Side, Too Hot to Stop It, Back to Basics, Sweet Talk, Kiss and Say Goodbye: The Best of the Manhattans, One Life to Live, Live from South America, Even Now, and Live in Concert.
