Synopsis

Album Description
The Greatest Songs of The Eighties is the next release in a best-selling series of tribute albums of popular music which includes The Greatest Songs of The Fifties, The Greatest Songs Of The Sixties and The Greatest Songs Of The Seventies whose cumulative sales, along with Ultimate Manilow have surpassed 5 million units worldwide. The Greatest Songs of The Eighties continues the productive and successful reunion between Manilow and Clive Davis, Arista founder and Chief Creative Officer, Sony BMG. Davis has been Manilow's hitmaking collaborator on virtually all his recordings, since they first worked together on "Mandy". His debut #1 single, as the first artist signed to Arista by Davis in 1974. The two produced The Greatest Songs of The Fifties, The Greatest Songs Of The Sixties and The Greatest Songs Of The Seventies together, and that magic has carried over to the new album as well.

CD Reviews

TRULY DISAPPOINTED
Enrique Sanchez | Miraflores, Lima Peru | 12/16/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I've loved BM songs even since they started to come out during the 70's. I must say that I have almost every album in CD now and I was hoping this new deliver of 80's renditions would be kind of good... but no no no... My dear Barry, I don't think you'll have the Time Of Your Life with this CD... these songs aren't for you or your vocal tone... too low... too slow... I'm sure there are much better songs that you could've chosen. The only cuts I like are ISLANDS IN THE STREAMS (because of the duo with Reba) and I JUST CALLED TO SAY I LOVE YOU (because of the samba-like feel you've put into it which makes it kind of interesting).

Better luck next time Barry!"
Excellent!!

"This is a wonderful CD. I've been waiting a long time for Barry to make an 80's CD and I was not disappointed. He did an excellent job! This is a must have for fans!"

"Just as the case with his previous "hits" of the decade package, Barry does a wonderful job with the tunes listed. One can't help missing his original material, but if you can't have that, then this is the next best thing. Especially pleasing is his "Islands In the Stream" duet with Reba McIntire. Just wonderful."
