"I am a confirmed Manilow fan, no matter how un-PC that may be considered by some, and have been ever since his "2AM, Paradise Café" album. And it's just as well I have that (and a lot of other Manilow material, eg "Swing Street", the Sinatra tribute...) to go on, because if my first introduction to Manilow were by way of this album, I would immediately join the ranks of those who spurn his stuff.
"Paradise Café" was rated by the international critics as the best album of the year it was produced, and is still one of the handful of discs I would grab if my house were burning down. This album, and its companion (the Fifties) I would cheerfully consign to the flames. The voice has just had it. Like Sinatra in his later days, like Buddy Greco, like Tony Bennett - all of whom I generally rate highly - Barry just doesn't seem to know to quit when he's ahead. I can't see him having made these discs for the money, but I can't see any other good reason either. The tremolo is just too much. The backing is what I would at best rate as OK.
I have bought both these albums, and wish I hadn't, because they tarnish the memory of a man who really was a great singer and entertainer but now is just, and very sadly, vocally over the hill.
Anyone care to buy the discs of me? Going cheap!"
Why can't they go away?

"I don't get it. First Rod Stewart, now Barry Manilow has decided to mangle some classic tunes. They are has been singers who couldn't buy a hit, but for some reason if they warble a bunch of popular tunes, people buy their music in droves. Probably the same idiots that voted for Bush. Reality tv, Stewart, Manilow,... the dumbing down of America continues at a rapid pace. Why can't they just go away?"
