AllMusic Review by Gregory McIntosh

Vocal acrobatics from the city that never sleeps emerge on Manhattan Doo Wop, Vol. 2 in a solid display of low-profile yet immensely talented doo wop groups equal to those represented on Manhattan Doo Wop, Vol. 1. Collectables' doo wop series, which focuses on specific regions, accomplishes much in integrating the obscure groups alongside the more popular vocal groups of the time, proving that many of the unknown ensembles were just as adventurous. Collectors should be happy to find these gems collected all in one place, and the casual listener will not be disappointed either.
