The best Manilow compilation,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ultimate Manilow [U.S.] (Audio CD)
To be honest, I don't love everything that Manilow has ever done - some of his ballads are superb slices of pop magic ("Mandy", "Trying To Get The Feeling Again", "Weekend In New England"), but some of his later stuff definitely sounds kitsch. For me, this is the best collection of his hits as it focuses on the early part of his career, and covers the classics that made him a superstar in the States. As a result, it misses the later stuff that was popular in the UK, but largely as a result of people discovering his back catalogue ("I Wanna Do It With You" hardly rates alongside this stuff). So if you want to minimise the cliched stuff, stick to this version of Manilow's hits!
