When it comes to Barry Manilow, he often gets unfair deal when it comes to both the critics and the publics. In addition to being a terrific vocalist, pianist, songwriter, and arranger - Barry Manilow provides the ability to entertain. Much of this comes from the excellent songwriting (whether it's Manilow's or thid party) and the passion that is delivered by Barry Manilow. Manilow's career spans more than 30 years - but the peak of Manilow's career came in the early years of his career that took place in the mid 1970s. While there are many Greatest Hits compilations that are available by Barry Manilow, it is perhaps his first Greatest Hits collection - "Barry Manilow - Greatest Hits" that still has stood the test of time. While this one may be hard to find, it still does an outstanding job at giving you a snapshot into this peak period of Barry Manilow's career. Because of some confusion in the naming of subsequent compilations, I am going to refer to this release as 1978's "Greatest Hits".

One thing that makes Barry Manilow's music special is his ability to work the song and "build it to a climax/crescendo". The music group Air Supply employed a similar approach with many of their songs. Like Air Supply, Manilow does a fabulous job at building the song to this "climax". It was during the "peak" period of the mid 1970s where Manilow did this better than he ever did. It is worth listening to the "build up" to a "climax" in many of the Manilow songs such as "Mandy", "Ready to Take a Chance Again", "Daybreak", "Could It Be the Magic", "Weekend in New England", "Can't Smile Without You", and "I Write the Songs", While Barry didn't write all of these songs, his style works just as well to "build up" the song as it did with the songs he wrote.

When buying Barry Manilow product for his hit making days, this collection is the best that was made which covered his hit making days from 1973 to 1978. The perfect 'bookend' release for this compilation is 1983's "Greatest Hits, Vol. II", which covers Barry's hits from 1979 to 1983. The other compilation that is compatible to both of these releases is 1985's "The Manilow Collection - Twenty Classic Hits", which also includes "When October Goes" and a duet with Dionne Warwick called "Run To Me" not found on any other Barry Manilow compilation. Stay away from the 1989 Arista "Greatest Hits 1, 2, and 3", as they are all inferior to the above three out of print releases. If you want a Barry Manilow hits package that is still in print, and is also comparable to the above three compilations, go for "The Essential Barry Manilow" which was released in 2005 by Arista/Legacy Records.

This CD took me back to when I heard these songs on the radio daily. I have enjoyed hearing these songs all again and have an even better appreciation of the wonderful ballads Barry Manilow made so famous. The song "Even Now" has really hit me in the heart as an adult. All these beautiful, timeless melodies and lyrics to enjoy again has been great.

BARRY MANILOW-GREATEST HITS: BARRY MANILOW was perhaps the most maligned pop star of the seventies...rock fans naturally hated him, and critics gleefully harped on the fact that he didn't write ALL the songs, including his biggies MANDY, WEEKEND IN NEW ENGLAND and of course, the chart topping I WRITE THE SONGS. But the former jingle writer/BETTE MIDLER accompanist was a laid back juggernaut who pumped out melancholy ballads and occasional uptempo ditties that roped in millions of (mostly female) fans and multi-platinum album sales. The CHOPIN-inspired COULD IT BE MAGIC, BANDSTAND BOOGIE, a hot swing band version of DICK CLARK's theme song, and kitschy calypso classic COPACABANA were all buoyed by MANILOW's earnest vocals, tinkling ivories and meticulously crafted arrangements. His impressive hit streak (over a dozen Top Thirty singles in a row) is well documented on GREATEST HITS, the first (and still the best) of his many anthologies. "Soft rock" may be an oxymoron, but BARRY MANILOW was its undisputed king throughout the "me decade".

RATING: THREE TEARDROPS
