Live [Legacy Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
It was certainly no Frampton Comes Alive!, but in the catalog of live albums issued in the '70s, it was certainly one of the strongest. Manilow's only chart-topping album unseating the mighty juggernaut that was Fleetwood Mac's Rumours was a high-energy affair capturing the atmosphere of Manilow's sold-out homecoming stint in New York City during 1976. This expanded edition restores the concert to the form heard on vinyl the "Beautiful Music" segues were omitted during the original CD pressings, giving the whole affair a bit more continuity.

And it certainly helps that much of the on-stage banter as well as several songs never before released are also included, giving a clearer portrait of Manilow's endearing wit that helped to define him as one of the most successful live acts of the '70s. This level of self-deprecating humor reaches its peak with the fan favorite "A Very Strange Medley," which features many of the commercial jingles Manilow composed before he was a hitmaker. Stitched together and without much context, it's a hysterical romp through '70s commercial pop culture. But if you know Manilow's history, it makes the performance that much sweeter. This is essential for even the most dedicated of Barry Manilow's fans.

    GREAT Remastered Memories!!!!!!

    I was there at the Uris for Barry's concerts when this was recorded. Takes me back there again! Can it really be thirty years ago? For old and new fans, it's a great CD with his standards, and it includes songs that were not in the original album/CD.

    THE BEST!!

    I have been a Barry Manilow fan from day one. Barry Manilow Live is the BEST album he ever made. It has all his best songs. This is a must for any Barry fan.
