He could be called the Einstein of songwriters. It may be the hair. It may also be that Marc is entirely cognizant of how the laws of the universe and those of human nature are unrelentingly intertwined; how an everyday event, a fleeting moment which so e

to write a review


Great to have this classic back!
Wow, finally: this new cd version of this great album makes the music sound almost as it did on the original '78 vinyl record!

'Mannequin' is one of my all time favorite albums. After 30 years I still play it regularly - the songs are incredible musical gems, played by musicians who obviously love what they're doing (most of them Steely Dan/Gary Katz studio regulars at the time). Being a musician myself and a bass player it still teaches me a thing or two about playing for the benefit of the song. The intricate arrangements and production (which could only have been done on such well written and eloquent songs - there you go Marc) are maybe one of the reasons why this album still gives me the same joy as it did when I first put it on the turntable.

The earlier cd reissue in the 90's (on the Califusa label) maybe could compare better with the digital sound standards at that time (like a wider range of bass and high frequencies), but somehow lacked the intimate, natural sound of the vinyl production. More important: Chuck Rainey's typical sound and intricate bass lines suddenly drowned in the new mix, and the vocals had an overdose of reverb that hadn't been there before (quite ugly, to be honest). I even considered digitizing my own vinyl copy… (but never did). And plowed the internet once in a while for a decent reissue by Warner (which never came).

I'm glad this new reissue is much closer to the more balanced 'original'. Well done, and thanks!
