Bodies and Souls was released in September 1983 by The Manhattan Transfer on the Atlantic Records label. This album took the Manhattan Transfer in a different direction from their previous releases, offering a new, revised style of their music.

Alan felt the same way. Please retry. One thing you could never accuse The Manhattan Transfer of being is musically closed year is 1983 and after the major pop successess of the previous two albums Extensions and Mecca for Moderns the quartet decided to head right for the contemporary popR&B sound that many of their contemporaries were into and,while they were leaning very strongly in
