Barry Manilow: The Greatest Songs of the Fifties CD

March 27, 2006 10:01 PM EST | Music | Email to Friend

Barry Manilow: The Greatest Songs of the Fifties CDThe #1 Adult Contemporary Recording Artist of all time, Barry Manilow, revisits the greatest hits of the 1950's! Highlighted by a guest appearance from Phyllis McGuire of the McGuire Sisters on the medley of 1954 hits, "Teach Me Tonight/Sincerely," The Greatest Songs of the Fifties is a veritable jukebox of favorites - from his remake of the Four Lads' "Moments To Remember" (1955) and the Everly Brothers' "All I have To Do Is Dream," to Bobby Darin's "Beyond The Sea" - but to hear them collected on one album is a dream come true. The album (just like the era it emulates) cuts across musical genres, from The Four Ace's "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing" to Frankie Avalon's "Venus," to Johnny Mathis' "It's Not For Me To Say," to Tommy Edwards' "It's All In The Game" and Diniah Washingston's signature "What A Difference A Day Makes." Some of America's greatest artists are evoked on songs that are forever associated with them. For example, Tony Bennett on "Rags To Riches," along with Frank Sinatra's "Young At Heart," and Elvis Presley's "Are You Lonesome Tonight." For Manilow, The Greatest Songs of The Fifties is a true labor of love.
