"I owned the recording of this Barry Manilow shortly after it was released many years ago. During one of our moves, I lost some of my albums, and did not think I could ever replace this one. I was so disappointed because I loved every song that was on it. I looked for it so many times, but thought it was not released again. Last week, I was on Amazon, just going thru Manilow cds, etc., and could not believe my eyes when I saw that it was out on a cd. I could not wait to get it. I have it, and it is even better than the first. ALL the songs are great----I love the tribute he does to London, plus all the other great ones, but to top it off is his rendition of "We'll Meet Again", and has the crowd going crazy, and singing with him----then my very favorite "One Voice"---- this is soooo beautiful. This has to be a favorite for all Barry Manilow fans, and when you hear this one, you will all be fans!!!! Thank you Amazon!!!"
Barry's in the Hall!

"I've seen the video from which this album was made. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was the holdback on the material that they chose to inlude on this CD. "Nickels And Dimes", "Ships", "If Should Love Again", "This One's For You", "Sunday Father" just to name a few along side his dialogue were left out. These were essential to the concert's flow. I don't mind that "Can't Smile Without You" was omitted. They can shelve that one til dust covers it to the point of barely visible. (I think I hear some women growling at me. Let them. It's a bad song whether studio or "live".)
He pours his heart out still in "Even Now" and in "Stay". This is what Barry is great at. Ballads. I must give credit to Kevin DiSimone and James Jolis on "Stay". They accompany him on the song not as two guys singing with him, but as two guys who have the same thought and it's pure coincidence. Why they left out "I Write The Songs" is beyond me. It's a sin. Barry on the video sets it up, "Aren't you tired? Here's to you, gang, here's to you. We've got one more." So warm. I won't drop a star down. "One Voice" leads into the "It's A Miracle" finale. Good enough. You would do yourself well to find this and the concert that was taped just a scant 3 or 4 months before this in Pittsburgh, PA. (The Barry Manilow Concert). It's the best video I've ever seen. E-Bay vendors unearth these things.
Include more songs."
