2014 remastered expanded edition of the 1980 album by legendary soul band The Manhattans. The album has been suggested as one of the best albums The Manhattans have ever recorded. As the title suggests, it’s the kind of record made for late night listening and features many beautiful love songs. With classy harmonies in the chorus and an outstanding Gerald Alston lead it provides a warm ending to a very fine chilled out soul record. If you like mellow soul then “After Midnight” is for you.

The finest Manhattan album in their second incarnation. The original group with George Smith had a slightly rougher, more traditional R&B/doo-wop sound, while the soul unit featuring Gerald Alston was smoother, but no less anthemic, especially on ballads. This album didn’t make it as high on the pop charts as their self-titled ’76 work, but had more consistently compelling tracks. “Shining Star” and “Girl Of My Dream” are masterful ballads.

01 – Shining Star
