A while back, I bought my mom a nice coffee maker and some other accessories so that she could have a little "cafe" of her own at home. Why am I telling you this? Because an important part of the cafe experience is the music. As it so happens, my mother is a devotee of Manilow, so I've been slowly fleshing out her collection of his CDs and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity to do so.
In this case, these are duets that have been engineered with legacy (historical) recordings. I've only heard a few, but the engineering seems to be good and the sound quality of a CD is superior to .mp3 or streaming. Also, my mother loves owning physical media, so it's a win all around.
As for the songs themselves, I can't really comment from a personal standpoint, but my mother likes them. Is this his best album? Not according to her. However, even without the benefit of AutoRip, this is a great purchase, as it's inexpensive and fleshes out an enthusiast's collection and adds new material.
