Album Review

Joe Viglione [allmusic.com]

This One's for You -- the fourth album from Barry Manilow -- contained four Top 30 hits including Randy Edelman's stunningly significant ''Weekend in New England'' (Top Ten towards the end of 1976), and another Number One -- ''Looks Like We Made It'' cowritten by ''Mandy'' cowriter Richard Kerr and ''Somewhere in the Night'' cowriter Will Jennings -- a fact that begs the question -- why didn't Barry Manilow cowrite with the bevy of major songwriters who penned his major hit recordings? The most consistent of his albums up to this point in time -- a big improvement over his Tryin' to Get the Feeling LP -- there are still lyrics that initiate ''the cringe factor,'' words so uncool they no doubt participated in keeping Barry Manilow from enjoying the chic appreciation Middle of the Road predecessors Ferrante & Teicher and their contemporaries were blessed with years after heavy chart activity. A song with science fiction overtones like ''Riders to the Stars'' comes off as tacky, Adrienne Anderson and Manilow dripping with excess, though they find redemption in penning the singer's ninth hit, ''Daybreak,'' a strong and bouncy number in the ''It's a Miracle'' category, but even better. And the team that brought you ''It's a Miracle,'' lyricist Marty Panzer and showman Manilow create the title track, ''This One's for You,'' the song with the weakest showing of Barry's first 16 Top 30 hits. With great orchestration from Gerald Alters, Charles Calello, Dick Berkhe, and Van McCoy, a touch of class permeates the Manilow/Ron Dante production. The first five songs flow better than the second half, but three of the four hits are very, very special -- further cementing this artist as a major force -- those hits keeping him on the charts from October of 1976 to October of 1977 -- as a huge radio presence keeping the audience primed for the next studio disc and its four more hits.

Even Now is the fifth studio album (sixth overall) by singer-songwriter Barry Manilow. It was recorded at A&M Studios in Hollywood, California and released in 1978. The album reached triple platinum and spun off four hit singles in 1978 and early 1979: the title song, ''Can't Smile Without You'', ''Copacabana'' and ''Somewhere in the Night'' (which had previously been a hit in 1976 for Helen Reddy).

Album Review

If I Should Love Again is the eighth studio album released by singer and songwriter Barry Manilow. The album was recorded at United Western Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California. Barry refers to it as ''The most romantic album that I ever made'', and remarks ''I was so caught up in romance that I actually wrote music and lyrics to the title song while playing the piano facing the ocean, in a rented house on the beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey.'' The album was released in 1981, and it scored single platinum, as the previous album had. [wikipedia.org]

Barry Manilow's Biography

Barry Manilow (born Barry Alan Pincus; June 17, 1943) is an American singer-songwriter, arranger, musician, and producer with a career that has spanned over 50 years. He is best known for a long string of hit recordings such as ''Mandy'', ''Can't Smile Without You'', and ''Copacabana (At the Copa)''.

In 1978, five of his albums were on the best-seller charts simultaneously, a feat equaled only by Herb Alpert, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, and Johnny Mathis. He has recorded and released 47 Top 40 singles, including 12 that hit number one and 27 of which appeared within the top ten, and has released many multi-platinum albums. He is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time, according to R&R (Radio & Records) and Billboard Magazines, and Rolling Stone crowned him ''a giant among entertainers... the showman of our generation.'' Although not a favorite of music critics, Manilow has been praised by several well-known entertainers, including Sinatra, who was quoted in the 1970s saying, ''He's next.'' In 1988, Bob Dylan stopped Manilow at a party, hugged him and said, ''Don't stop what you're doing, man. We're all inspired by you.''

As well as producing and arranging albums for other artists, including Bette Midler and Dionne Warwick, Manilow has written songs for musicals, films, and commercials. From February 2005 to December 30, 2009, he was the headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, performing hundreds of shows before ending his relationship with the hotel. Since March 2010, he has headlined at the Paris hotel in Las Vegas. He has sold more than 80 million records worldwide, making him one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. [wikipedia.org]
