Editorial Reviews

For his Verve Music debut MY DREAM DUETS, Manilow demonstrates that he is a fan celebrating his own musical heroes who have inspired him through the years. From cherished idols like Judy Garland and Louis Armstrong to contemporary icons like Whitney Houston and John Denver. Barry has joined together with them in his recording studio, emerging with a collection of remarkable duet classics.

Although the extraordinary guest artists on MY DREAM DUETS are no longer with us, Manilow's mission is to ensure their immortal voices live on to excite and entertain all generations of music lovers.

"Just what the world needs" I thought..."another 'Duets' album". I have never been a big fan of this concept but a few of the artists Barry Manilow chose to include in this project positively intrigued me. First and foremost there is the incomparable Frankie Lymon. In my opinion "Goody Goody" is one of the greatest rock & roll numbers of all time. Then there is the great Dusty Springfield, Andy Williams and the legendary Jimmy Durante to name but a few. All of a sudden I realized that "Barry Manilow: My Dream Duets" might well be worth sampling after all. And lo and behold I was not disappointed. Frankly I was flabbergasted to discover that I enjoyed every single one of the 11 tunes on this disc. What's not to like? I thought the songs that were selected were just fabulous. My personal favorites were the aforementioned "Goody Goody". "Moon River" with Andy Williams and "Dream A Little Dream of Me" with Mama Cass. Meanwhile, his collaboration with Marilyn Monroe on "I Wanna Be Loved By You" proves to be a real hoot. And you simply can't go wrong including the great Louis Armstrong and "What A Wonderful World". Furthermore, I was duly impressed with Barry's vocal performances on this album. "Barry Manilow: My Dream Duets" is tons of fun and very entertaining. My guess is that Manilow fans are going to love this one!

When Barry Manilow announced he was doing a duets album of cover songs (no less), my first reaction was simply shake my head and say "WHY?" Like many fans, I was hoping for new, original material. Then when I heard he was doing a duets album with deceased singers, I realized this could be the biggest mistake of his career or one of the biggest triumphs.

Having purchased the first three singles before the complete album was released, I Believe In You And Me, Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart and What A Wonderful World / What A Wonderful Life I was impressed, to say the least and wrote positive reviews for each of them.

Now, after listening to the complete album -- twice before writing this review -- I'm very pleased to say that MY DREAM DUETS is one of the hallmarks of his career.

Instead of sounding like a bad karaoke version (unlike other artists who have also sang with the dearly departed), the technology used on this album to isolate each of his duet partner's vocals is pretty flawless. Each singer sounds like they are in the the same recording studio with Barry.

From both a production and performance standpoint, Barry shows the utmost respect and allows each and every single artist that he performs with on this album to shine in their own spotlight, while still keeping a strong, original vocal and musical presence of his own through his own original arrangements of their signature songs.

When I first heard Barry was working on doing this duets album with legendary artists who have all passed away, I thought it was a very interesting idea, but I wasn't sure how it was all going to come together. Barry has described this album as "a miracle," and it's no wonder why, especially with the challenges of removing the vocals from the older recordings that were done with only one track. Barry has superbly documented and explained how this dream of "My Dream Duets" became a reality with his notes on his Facebook page. It is very clear My Dream Duets happened because of Barry's brilliance, and an incredibly talented team of people who believed in the dream (and this amazing musical journey) as much as Barry! I have been a Barry Manilow fan for 40 years now, and not once has he ceased to amaze me! However, I couldn't be more proud of Barry and everyone involved with My Dream Duets! Just the fact that this duets album happened is amazing in itself, and without today's music and sound technology it would not have been possible. That being said, one of the most striking things about My Dream Duets is the quality of the sound, and how they sound like they were recorded yesterday! This is part of Barry's brilliant musicianship (especially as an arranger,) and it was a key component of making this My Dream Duets idea come to fruition. Barry really outdid himself making sure that the duet partners shined in the duets. Barry also added his own orchestrations and arrangements, and these elements were an integral part of creating a musical masterpiece that makes it feel and sound like the duet partners were in the recording studio with him!Read more ›

This is an outstanding musical achievement. Besides one of the best Manilow recordings, presented here are songs from legends--Garland, Denver, Williams, Houston and so many others. The technical aspect of this recording is magical. However, it's Manilow that really makes this the strongest Duets album in years (so much better than the mediocre Streisand version). Outstanding!
