Editorial Reviews

BARRY MANILOW: SONGS FROM THE SEVENTIES is the best sort of homecoming. This wonderfully entertaining PBS special was shot at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn right down the block from where Manilow grew up in Williamsburg. This special finds Manilow focusing on the music of the decade when he became one of the biggest stars in music - which he very much remains today more than three decades later. The hit heavy set list is an inspired mix of Manilow's own Seventies gems, along with some other memorable Seventies smashes that Manilow makes his own. David Mallet who directed Barry Manilow: Music and Passion - for which Manilow won an Emmy - served again as director. The Seventies were very good to Barry, and after all these years he is giving homage to this exceptional decade.

Barry Manilow's PBS special is just what I expected. He delivers his best to his audiences. It is old music but it is good music with moving lyrics. His acoustic arrangements highlight his talent and the talents of those on the instruments. The PBS special was like a comforting cup of hot chocolate on a snowy, winter night. You will love the interaction of Manilow to his audience. His connection with his audience is real. He is not "up" on a stage this time. There is a walking ramp he uses that unites him with the audience in delivering an enjoyable "feel good" hour of music.

I saw Barry taping this in Steiner Studios in Brooklyn. This was a 2 day shoot and the footage from the second night is the one that is being released on this DVD. Although there were "some" seat fillers, the majority of the viewers were fans who entered online at Barry's website to win tickets. I was one of the winners who was seated between the piano stage (stage two) and the main stage (stage one) but was even more lucky enough to have been seated in the chair directly at the end of the steps of stage one (main stage) and got to speak to and assist Barry when he exited the stage. The camera was on me several times (full shots) while signing various songs.

KUDOS to Barry for delivering a stellar performance. He is a performer who will always remain in the hearts of true fans! I recommend this DVD to anyone who is a true Manilow lover.

Format: DVD
Got out my Bose over-the-ear headphones and potable DVD player for this one. This was a stinky week at work and I cannot think of a better way to spend early Saturday morning than with Barry, a cup of decaf, and a cranberry muffin. I generally write a review as I'm watching or listening for the FIRST time, so you get my first impressions of a product. I believe that is probably the most helpful assessment I can give you. That's why I am using both a potable DVD player and a PC.

This 2-disc DVD opens with Barry at his white Yamaha digital piano, playing and singing "Mandy," lookin' mighty spiffy in a classic dark suit with a blue shirt to set off those baby blue eyes. (I could have gone to this taping for PBS in Brooklyn in September 2007, but I didn't because I had been off work so much in September and was afraid to take off another couple of days. I am still kicking myself. Ouch!)

DISC 1 (50 minutes)
"New York City Rhythm" is next This song is hot! "I Am Your Child" of course, is a beautiful song that the fans have heard many times. I think it reminds of how important it is to try to teach our children the right things and do the best we can with them. (Anyway, they say, "Be good to your children. They will select your nursing home.")

Barry talks about and performs "The Commercials (Again!)" (Band-Aids, State Farm Insurance, McDonald's, Vicks), which has previously been referred to as "Very Special Melodies" (VSM). Based on a Chopan prelude, the beautiful "Could It Be Magic?" is next, followed by the acoustical version of "Copacabana (At The Copa)" from Barry's 70 CD. I love this version, kinda salsa-sounding. The audience claps along as he walks among them around an elevated walkway singing it. He steps down for a minute and dances with them.

If you are a Manilow fan, as my wife and I are, and especially if you love '70s music, as we do (we dated and were married in the 70s), you simply cannot go wrong with this DVD concert. Barry is in fine form and incredibly enthusiastic as is the audience (we know it's probably an invited audience but who cares - the audience is attractive and fun to watch watching Barry). Excellent audio and video quality. Even if you are not necessarily a Manilow fan, one would still have to appreciate the great craftsmanship that is apparent here throughout. A definite concert must-have.

He looks great, sounds exceptional too, a fantastic selection of songs, perhaps MORE new ones would have been nice, what i mean is the songs he didn't originally do, but i enjoyed what was on here none the less, i would love to see a follow up of the EIGHTIES album, but that is not relevent here, the extras dvd is a lovely bonus, the medley of "the way we were/you've got a friend is BREATHTAKING! that bit with the water bottle is hilarious, in that unique Barry fashion!

I love this dvd..enough said!
