Editorial Reviews

Welcome to the Playlist series. Painstakingly compiled by the artists and the music nuts at Legacy Recordings, these collections truly represent an artists' complete body of work. We've fished through hundreds-thousands-of tracks to cherry pick the perfect playlists. Not just the hits (anyone can find those). The life changing cuts. The out-of-print tracks. The fan favorites everyone loves. The songs that make the artist who they are.

You’ll no doubt enjoy the sound of the beautifully remastered songs on this CD (as opposed to MP3's that contain less information, which translate into compromised sound). But we think the thing you'll appreciate most about this Playlist is that even though you didn't make it, you might wish you did.

After nearly 40 years as a solo artist, it's not surprising Barry Manilow has had so many hits packages. Longtime fans are hungry for something new (and original) from the man. Hold tight, that's coming in 2011 (new original album "Fifteen Minutes" is on the way). Although I already have all these songs, I managed to find this collection in an after-Thanksgiving sale for under $5 so I couldn't resist adding it to my collection. And I always hope a new mastering will reveal some nuances I hadn't heard before in the songs. This set differs from other "greatest hits" collections in that in includes some non-hit songs (such as "No Other Love" and "I Am Your Child"). People who buy this collection for the hits will be pleased to hear these and a couple other little-known songs. One of my favorites is "Keep Each Other Warm," which here has a different sound than on the 1989 album it comes from.

My only complaint with the compilation is the liner notes, specifically the Discography. It has a section called Original Albums that is both incomplete and inaccurate. For some reason it lists three Greatest Hits compilations from the late 90s while omitting his two original Greatest Hits albums of the 70s and 80s. It also puts the wrong year on "Live on Broadway" and omits "Live in Britain" completely. There are other omissions as well ("Here Comes The Night," "Barry," "Copacabana Original Soundtrack," "The Manilow Collection," "Summer of '78," "Here At The Mayflower," "Scores" and a few others). I think several of the dates are wrong. Maybe this is only a list of albums put out on the Arista Legacy label? I can't understand why so many are missing, especially

I liked this CD pretty good, but the only thing I can complain about is that it is to perfect, almost sterile. Maybe it's kind of nit picky, but it just was so noticeably to me. Overall Barry Manilows' voice and songs are hard to beat.

i love a few of his hts like Mandy a story of a girl who was so generous but he sent her away he because she was giving.i liked like copacabana that was a nice love story of how jealous her lover was and how it caused her to lose her mind and give up on life itself.she was all alone and lost in this great big evil world.i like i write the songs the lyrics are beautiful and very meaningful when i hear thie particular song i cry and get so emotional.

Playlist: The Very Best Of Barry Manilow is a fine CD. Barry's voice always makes me feel good. Favorite songs are Keep Each Other Warm, Mandy, Could It Be Magic, and When October Goes. Barry Manilow has had a lasting career because of his talent, and tenacity. Fans of Barry Manilow will like this the most.

very strong collection. one of the best all around Artists and a man who knows melody and can arrange something out of a song. these songs are on point. i have always dug his voice and attention to detail, timing and rhythm and production. this is a good start at exploring his catelog.

Sometimes with "off-price" collections, the recording quality is abysmal -- not so here! It's a decent collection for the price, although I wish "Even Now" and "Weekend in New England" were included, which are among Barry's "very best" imo.
