Larel Massé certainly deserves a Wiki entry in her own right, I'll set about it in a couple of weeks.Tban 15:41, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

They all do. Also: anybody know why the album cover image isn't displaying?--Orange Mike 19:36, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

I'm going make a note in the article that says that it covers only the band's second incarnation (which is fine, but the intro mentions two versions and discusses only the second).

Non-free use of images[edit]

Wikipedia:Non-free content#Unacceptable uses#Images I've removed the images from the article discography per the above.Awotter (talk) 23:20, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

why the may '09 warning?[edit]

Who says it's got "an excessive amount of intricate detail"? I certainly don't think so. I hadn't listened to the band in 20 years, came here looking for specific info, and found it. I found the amount of detail quite helpful. Chthulu knits (talk) 04:51, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

another album[edit]

They also appear in the 1997 album "Got Swing!" by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. My source is the album cover. -- James Hannum

confusion with live albums[edit]

There is some confusion among the live albums listed (copies of which I own and have consulted) as regards song lists, covers, and dates. The listing at appears to be correct, and I invite the original author to look into the matter and make needed corrections. Acemoonbeam (talk) 00:03, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

I've split the data for The Manhattan Transfer Live (1978) and Man-Tora! Live in Tokyo (incorrectly shown as 1987) to establish Live (1987). The cover of Live was incorrectly shown as an alternate cover for The Manhattan Transfer Live. The old listing for Man-Tora! Live in Tokyo was a mix of data from Man-Tora! Live in Tokyo and what should have been Live. I created a new article for Live, moved Man-Tora! Live in Tokyo to its proper release year of 1996 and updated the main discography.
