One of my favorites

"As a child I fell in love with Barry Manilow..his music..lyrics..the way he sang a song. Although I'm now an adult and my musical tastes have broadened considerably, I still appreciate all that Barry gave and gives to his music. I've always loved his first three albums, in particular..and this one tops my list for "Could it Be Magic" alone. "One of These Days", "Oh My Lady", "Sweet Life" and "I am Your Child" are among the standouts in my much for the heartfelt way Barry sings them as for anything else. This may have been his first album..and produced even earlier than I had realized (1972)..but it is by no means a sad effort. I recently ordered the CD version, having lost my vinyl to a flood years back..and I can't wait to hear it, again. For simple, heartfelt melodies, Barry's your man."
Not all that bad

"This is the first record I ever owned - holiday gift when I was 7 years old. I love it for the memories, I suppose, but to look at it objectively I would say this: it was the man's very first recording for crying out loud, be understanding. It dates back to 1972, so if it sounds a bit funky, it probably should. I like to listen to this as a basis to see how far he has come, how he has matured over his 30 year career (quite a bit.) Really, if you're a fan and you have everything else Manilow, this is worth having as well. It is a part of his history - and sounds it. It is his beginning. It is NOT, however, a great work, nor who he is today. For a non-fan this would just sound old, outdated, and corny."
Can't get enough of that flashy lady!

"track 9 "Flashy Lady" is probably the most Manilow has come to having rock music on his albums {except a 1981 song called "Wild Places" on his box set that wasn't issued on any of his albums because his producer was scared at the public reaction!!}. anyway, track 9 is my favorite because it's so different from what you'd expect. "One of these Days" is my second favorite. I love it's country feel {this whole album has a country-flavor to it and that's why most people here have a hard time listening to it}. "Seven More Years" deals with a guy in prison. "Sweetwater Jones" is a sing-a-long song as is "Cloudburst". The only hit, "Could It Be Magic?", is track 7. This album came out in 1972 but was re-released in 1975 after the success of "Mandy" and 'BARRY MANILOW II"...and 'BARRY MANILOW I' as a result became as big a hit as it's follow-up...which was something rare at the time."
