In 1948, as a five-year old he recorded "Happy Birthday" with his grandfather in a coin-operated recording booth as a present for his cousin Dennis.[3] Twenty five years later, a sample of this recording, known as "Sing It," served as the opening track on his first album.


When his mother later remarried, Manilow's stepfather, Willie Murphy, brought an extensive collection of jazz and swing records into the house. As a teenager, he listened to these records constantly, coming to idolize such conductors and composers as Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Cole Porter and Nelson Riddle. It was Murphy who gave him a piano for his 13th birthday, at the time of his bar mitzvah. Manilow then dropped the accordion and began practising on his new piano.

Following graduation, Manilow enrolled at the New York College of Music and The Juilliard School, while working in the mailroom at CBS to pay his expenses. At CBS in 1964, the 21-year-old Manilow met Bro Herrod, a director, who asked him to arrange some public domain songs for a musical adaptation of the melodrama, The Drunkard. Instead, he wrote an entire original score.[4] The musical became a success and ran Off-Broadway for eight years at the 13th Street Theatre in New York.[5] The Juilliard School is a performing arts conservatory in New York City, informally but definitively identified as simply Juilliard, and most famous for its musically-trained alumni. ...

Career

1970s: Success

Manilow's association with Bette Midler began at the Continental Baths in New York City.[13] He accompanied her and other artists on the piano from 1970 to 1971, and Midler chose Manilow to assist with the production of her first two albums, The Divine Miss M (1972) and Bette Midler (1973), and act as her musical director on the The Divine Miss M tour.[14] Manilow worked with Midler for four years, from 1971 to 1975. In 1973, Bell Records released Manilow's first album, Barry Manilow, which offered an eclectic mix of piano-driven pop and guitar-driven rock music. The album included a song that Manilow had composed for the 1972 war drama Parades. Among the songs in the album were "Friends," "Cloudburst," and "Could It Be Magic." Bette Midler permitted Manilow to sing three of the songs in that album during intermission in her show.

As a result of a corporate takeover, Bell Records, along with other labels, was merged into a new entity named Arista Records, under the leadership of Clive Davis, who seized the opportunity to drop many artists. However, after seeing Manilow perform as the opening act at a Dionne Warwick concert, he was convinced that he had a winner on his hands, and a mentorship lasting decades resulted.

The partnership began to bear fruit in 1974, with the release of Manilow's second album, Barry Manilow II, on both Bell and Arista, which contained the breakthrough number-one hit, "Mandy". Ironically, Manilow had not wanted to record "Mandy," as he hadn't written it — but the song was included at the insistence of Clive Davis. Following the success of Barry Manilow II, the first Bell release was re-mixed and re-issued as Barry Manilow I. When Manilow went on his first tour, he included as part of his show "A Very Strange Medley," a sampling of some of the commercial jingles that he had written or sung. Beginning with Manilow's March 22, 1975 appearance on American Bandstand to promote Barry Manilow II (where he sang "Mandy" and "It's A Miracle"), a productive friendship with Dick Clark started.[15] Numerous appearances by Manilow on Clark's productions of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, singing his original seasonal favorite "It's Just Another New Year's Eve", American Bandstand anniversary shows, American Music Awards performances and his 1985 television movie Copacabana are among their projects together.

"Mandy" was the start of a string of hit singles and albums that lasted through the rest of the 1970s to the early 1980s, coming from the multi-platinum and multi-hit albums Tryin' to Get the Feeling, This One's for You, Even Now and One Voice.

Among the hits which he did not write are "Mandy," "Tryin’ to Get the Feeling Again", "Weekend in New England," "Looks Like We Made It," "Can't Smile Without You" and "Ready to Take a Chance Again."

The album contained "I Made It Through The Rain" and "Bermuda Triangle." "We Still Have Time" was featured in the 1980 drama Tribute. The album If I Should Love Again followed in 1981, containing "The Old Songs", "Let's Hang On" and "Somewhere Down The Road".

In his only lead acting role, he portrayed Tony Starr in a 1985 CBS film based on Copacabana which also featured Annette O'Toole as Lola Lamarr and Joseph Bologna as Rico. This was named one of the top TV specials of the year by TV Guide magazine. Manilow penned all the songs for the movie, with lyrics provided by established collaborators Bruce Sussman and Jack Feldman. RCA records also released a soundtrack album of the movie. In October 1986, Manilow, along with Bruce Sussman, Tom Scott, and Charlie Fox went to Washington, D.C. for two days of meetings with legislators, including lunch with then Senator Al Gore (D-TN).[25] They were there to lobby against a copyright bill put forward by local television broadcasters that would mandate songwriter-producer source licensing of theme and incidental music on syndicated television show reruns and would disallow use of the blanket license now in effect. The songwriters said without the blanket license, artists would have to individually negotiate up front with producers, without knowing if a series will be a success. The license now pays according to a per-use formula. Manilow said that such a bill would act as a precedent for broadcasters to get rid of the blanket license entirely.[26] This article is about the broadcast network. ...

The following year, McGraw-Hill published his autobiography Sweet Life: Adventures on the Way to Paradise which had taken him about three years to complete. While promoting his autobiography, Manilow defended his music in a telephone interview: "I live in laid-back L.A., but in my heart, I'm an energetic New Yorker and that's what has always come out of my music. I've always been surprised when the critics said I made wimpy, little ballads".[27] Manilow returned to Arista Records in 1987 with the release of Swing Street. The album contained a mixture of traditional after-dark and techno jazz.

In 1989, Manilow put on a show named Barry Manilow at the Gershwin from April 18 to June 10, 1989 where he made 44 appearances.[30] By coincidence, the Gershwin Theatre (formally called the Uris Theatre) was the same one where Barry Manilow Live was recorded in 1976.

1990s: Under cover

In the 1990s, Manilow's album career changed significantly. His recordings switched from him being primarily a singer-songwriter to him being a cover artist. A trend that started with the 1989 release Barry Manilow, continued with his 1990 Christmas LP Because It's Christmas. Consequent "event" albums followed including: Showstoppers, a collection of Broadway songs (1991), Singin' with the Big Bands (1994) and a late 1970s collection Summer of '78 (1996) which included the hit "I Go Crazy", formerly a hit for Paul Davis in 1978. Many consider this to be the weakest effort of Manilow's career. The decade ended with Manilow recording a tribute to Frank Sinatra Manilow Sings Sinatra (1998) released months after Sinatra's death.

In 1990, Japan aired National Eolia Special: Barry Manilow On Broadway where he sang the title song "Eolia", which was used as a song there in a commercial for an air conditioner company of the same name, as well as other songs from his 1989–1990 Live on Broadway tour. In the early 1990s, Manilow signed on with Don Bluth to compose the songs with lyricists Jack Feldman and Bruce Sussman for three animated films. He co-wrote the Broadway-style musical scores for Thumbelina (1994) and The Pebble and the Penguin (1995). The third film, entitled Rapunzel, was shelved after the poor performance of Pebble. Manilow was also to be cast as the voice of a cricket. Manilow also composed the score and wrote two songs with Bruce Sussman for Disney Sing Along Songs: Let's Go To The Circus. But unfortunately, because of a contract agreed by both of them, Andrew Belling and Domenick Allen were credited as composers, meaning that nobody isn't supposed to know that a celebrity like Manilow should be credited in that movie.

W. Bush. The Act, an historic compromise between the consumer electronics and music industries, became effective immediately. In 1993, PBS aired Barry Manilow: The Best of Me, taped at Wembley Arena in England that year, to fundraise. The BBC also played a one-hour version of the same show including "The Best of Me" sung during the concert, a bonus song or "lucky strike extra" as Manilow says, not seen in The Greatest Hits...and then some, the video release of the show; however, the song was included on the DVD of the same title, with Manilow seated in front of a black curtain, lip-syncing to the recording. Manilow branched out in another direction and with longtime lyricist Bruce Sussman launched Copacabana, a musical play based on previous Manilow-related adaptations.

Barry Manilow - Music Downloads - Online (939 words)
Barry Manilow was born Barry Alan Pincus on June 17, 1946, in Brooklyn, and grew up in its low-income Williamsburg section.
Manilow changed the song into a ballad and changed the title to "Mandy" (to avoid confusion with the Looking Glass hit "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)"); released on 1974's Barry Manilow II, "Mandy" became a number one hit early the next year.
Manilow's long relationship with Arista ended when he signed to the jazz-oriented Concord label, for which he debuted in late 2001 with the concept album Here at the Mayflower, which continued his evolution into a pre-rock pop stylist.
