The first manifestation of the group was established during 1969 in New York city, with Tim Hauser, Erin Dickins, Marty Nelson, Gene Pistilli, and Pat Rosalia. They contracted with Capitol Records, recorded several tracks, and during 1971 issued their only album with this line-up, Jukin’. This team endured only until 1971.
The next line-up of the group was formed in 1972 by Tim Hauser with singers Alan Paul, Janis Siegel, and Laurel Mass_. After performances at Max’s Kansas City, Trude Heller’s and Reno Sweeney with Herb Abramson’s A-1 Sound engineer Jim Reeves in New York City, the group developed a cult fan base, and it was at the latter venue that Ahmet Erteg_n, founder and chairman of Atlantic Records, saw them and offered a recording contract. The group’s first album for Atlantic was The Manhattan Transfer in 1975, and included the group’s first successful single, the gospel tune ‘Operator’.
