The group line-up endured only about two years. According to Tim Hauser, "Gene and I were in two different places. He was more into country & western, R&B, and the Memphis sound, and by then I'd become more interested in jazz and swing..." Consequently, this edition of the Manhattan Transfer broke up shortly after this album was released, and Tim Hauser formed a new version of the group during October 1972. The revised Manhattan Transfer line-up would sign to Atlantic Records in 1975 and resume the group's recording career with much greater success.
The Jukin' album, meanwhile, remains an orphan in the Manhattan Transfer's catalogue. Issued on a different label than their future successes, with a different group line-up and a different sound from that which became their trademark, Jukin' is not acknowledged at all on the band's official website, nor have any of its tracks been anthologized on Manhattan Transfer 'best-of' compilations; although the track 'Java Jive' can be found on multiple compilation albums, it is a re-recorded version which differs in personnel from the line-up on Jukin' .
The album has been reissued, usually as a budget-priced item, with a variety of covers. A comparatively recent European re-issue of Jukin' tracks was entitled A Touch Of Class, and featured misleading packaging and credits that wrongly implied that the songs were actually performed by the later (post-1972) version of The Manhattan Transfer.
