Barry Manilow - The Greatest Love Songs of All Time
Barry Manilow - a name that is synonymous with love and romance, has done it again with his latest CD, "The Greatest Love Songs Of All Time". Released on January 26th, the singer’s latest 13 track CD is quite impressive overall. As a true and tried Barry Manilow fan since I was a young child, that’s hard for me to say because he’s always been a 5 star guy, and believe me, he still is. But when you delve into remaking classics, one must tread lightly.

Manilow does a spectacular job at performing all of the songs, and his voice is better than ever. The arrangements, which he did himself, were well done, and when you listen to the CD, it truly sounds like he’s right there in the room with you singing. That’s how much quality was put into this album. I enjoyed the songs immensely, and as always, Manilow hit each and every note with perfection. My only criticism, if you could even call it that, was that two of the songs "Where Do I Begin (the theme from Love Story)" and "Love Me Tender" by Elvis Presley should never have been remade because you can’t perfect perfection, and those happen to be two songs that should never have been redone, not even by one so great as Manilow.

Having said that, Barry Manilow fans will have no problem enjoying this CD, with classics like "The Look of Love," "I Only Have Eyes For You," "We’ve Only Just Begun," and "You Made Me Love You" to name a few. "The Greatest Love Songs Of All Time" maintains the integrity of the original classics and again, Manilow’s voice is simply phenomenal, as is the orchestra and rhythm section behind him. "Love Is Here To Stay" is the first track, and it begins with Manilow singing acapella, lulling you into a soothing, romantic place. The orchestra soon joins in, accompanied by a nice saxophone solo. Each song thereafter is just as good. This is a great CD and once again, although I’ve seen him in concert twice and have many of his CDs, I think this is the best performance, vocally, that I can remember. When it comes to songs about love, Barry Manilow is still the reigning champion.
