A brief glimpse into a day in the life of the Man from Manhattan So, the Man From Manhattan was taken down by a hit-man… but the hit-man overlooked the fact that the lining of the Man from Manhattan’s jacket was laden with lead!!
After a few undeveloped attempts to resurrect the record over the years, I entered into talks with Warner Bros in 2016, with the aim of regaining the rights to the recordings I made when signed to the label in 1975-78 and, in partnership with Kenny at MCM Global Team, we finally struck a deal for these rights last year and freed my tracks from the vaults of obscurity.
This gave us the opportunity to compile a 13 track LP of remastered songs from the Warner Bros period. There are 3 versions of Man From Manhattan; Freddie’s original mix, a remixed and remastered ‘radio-mix’ and a Dolby Atmos version. We’re aiming to release the LP later this year as a special edition vinyl box-set on the MCM label.
There will be a poster of Freddie and myself in the package and the original painting of the poster, by Bolivian artist Andrea Terceros who did the art work and design for the album, will be auctioned, with the proceeds being donated to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
Project updates and info on the release date will be posted on themanfrommanhattan.com ..
All the best.. Eddie
