My personal favorite EBTG would be Baby The Stars Shine Bright, which I think was two before the one you picture.

Listening to that one now. Teardrops is gorgeous.

Rock on, Philo.  8)

He gave great concerts, particularly when he returned home to Dublin.
They wold sneak on to the stage in the dark, the lights would go on and Bang...off they would go while the crowd went nuts.

Tangerine Dream ‎– Electronic Meditation. Sometimes I’m just not in the mood for anything Electronic or Meditative.

The Manhattan Transfer: Swing - From 1997, and relatively short (c. 45 minutes), this is one of the group's finest recordings. I'm particularly fond of the arrangements of "Skyliner" and "A-Tisket, A-Tasket," the latter made famous by Ella Fitzgerald.

But arrangements aside, the jazz vocal talent on display is stunning.

I haven't heard that since it came out - will have to give it another play.

I'm a big unapologetic fan of The Manhattan Transfer (I say unapologetic because they're scoffed at in some jazz circles) and their Vocalese is one of my favorite albums.

So happy to find another fan of MT. I know they are looked at with disdain by some, which I cannot understand, since their vocal work is often brilliant. What they do can sound easy, but the arrangements and vocal tricks they execute are often quite difficult. (Not to mention, they sing beautifully in tune, which seems to escape some vocal groups.)

Maybe people view them as a bit bourgeois. But the group's influences -- Jon Hendricks, The Hi-Lo's, Singers Unlimited -- were highly regarded back in the day.

Haven't listened to Vocalese in some time, but will remedy that!

Tangerine Dream – Oszillator Planet Concert. Included on my CD of Alpha Centauri but sounds more like something from the subsequent album Zeit. At least until it sounds more like Pink Floyd. ;)
