Scepter/Wand and Musicor/Dynamo records were quintessential New York soul labels. Their common link was Luther Dixon, who set Scepter on the right road with the Shirelles and followed up with success for Tommy Hunt, Chuck Jackson and Maxine Brown. He split for Musicor in 1966 where he got the Platters, Tommy Hunt and Inez & Charlie Foxx back into the charts. Scepter/Wand had the bigger black music catalogue and dominates this compilation. It is the third in the recent Manhattan Soul series: across-the-board soul covering the 60s and the first half of the 70s.

The dictionary definition of "pastiche" is an artistic composition imitating or caricaturing previous works, so given the lack of homegrown material here, it is hard to say what the Manhattan Transfer meant by this title. In any case, this assortment of odds and ends from various eras in American music – recorded in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville and Australia – finds the Transfer casting its lines in search of a direction that it had yet to find. But there are signs that they were getting close. The Transfer's stunning rendition of "Four Brothers," with composer Jimmy Giuffre present in the sax section, marks the beginning of their championing of the words of Jon Hendricks and placed the Transfer in position to claim the long-vacant throne of group vocalese…

Vincent Madigan è un detective problematico, indebitato, con due mogli e quattro figli da mantenere. Prende droghe e pillole e, soprattutto, sa di aver sempre fatto la scelta sbagliata. Adesso Madigan vuole saldare i propri debiti con Sandià, il boss della droga di East Harlem (il cui soprannome è Uomo delle angurie, per il terribile modo in cui fa torturare le proprie vittime), e rimettere in carreggiata la sua sbandata esistenza. Il piano è semplice: sottrarre a una banda di ladri quattrocentomila dollari. Ma qualcosa non funziona. Il furto si risolve in una strage e Madigan è costretto a eliminare i suoi collaboratori. Così adesso deve fuggire. E gli inseguitori sono due: Sandià e il NYPD. Come un topo in trappola, Madigan elabora un piano pericoloso che lo porterà a rischiare di perdere la propria vita o guadagnarne definitivamente una nuova.
