A great Barry Manilow CD to add to your collection
Posted by: MeredithSecaur from: Phoenix, AZ on
I'm not usually a huge fan of Barry Manilow, but this CD is one of his best. Though most of the tracks on here are not your general 'showstoppers', some of them are pretty good songs, and are brought out nicely by Mr. Manilow's smooth vocals.
I don't profess to be an expert authority on musicals. Most of these tracks don't ring a bell for me, though there are a few great ones from some famoous musicals such as "Gypsy", "Babes in Arms", "Guys and Dolls". and "Les Miserables".
The first track, "Overture of Overtures", is a great amalgamation of various showstoppers from musicals throughout history, and is a fitting introduction to an album with nothing but showtunes.
To highlight some of my own personal showstoppers, I would like to start with my favorite track, "Fugue for Tinhorns" from "Guys and Dolls". It's a peppy, often a bit silly, and because he trios with Hinton Battle and Michael Crawford, who is coincidentially my favorite singer in the entire world, makes this stand out above all others for me.
"Real Live Girl" is another nice one. The exuberance Manilow exudes is refreshing, and balances out the slightly lonely nature of some of the other songs.
"Bring Him Home" is my third favorite. Very gently done, it is perhaps the biggest tear-jerker in the album, and puts a nice end to the large and extremely varied selection of broadway songs.
"Showstoppers" is packaged up very nicely, with an image of a lighted billboard, an image that is printed in a metallic relief on the disc itself.
In closing, though not all of the songs are terrific, there are enough standouts that make the $7 price tage completely worth every penny.
