Amazon.ca

Even before he steps out onto the stage, the audience is on its feet clapping and screaming for Barry Manilow. Walking out and launching into "Could It Be Magic?" Manilow proves his pipes are as strong and clear as ever and his suits still dapper. He promises "beautiful melodies, passionate lyrics, great grooves, and maybe even some swiveling hips" to the delight of the sold-out house. The video was filmed in Nashville in February 2000 and includes half an hour of footage not included in the direct TV broadcast.

A consummate showman, Manilow performs 24 of his biggest hits accompanied by full orchestra. "Tryin' to Get the Feeling Again" speaks to everyone whose heart has been broken but holds out for love. During "Can't Smile Without You," the audience holds up signs bearing smiley faces, hearts, and "ME" in hopes that Manilow will pick them for his traditional duet. "Bandstand Boogie," the long-time theme song for American Bandstand, rocks the house. Then Manilow brings it down for perennial favorite, "Mandy," which segues into "Even Now."

Manilow's timing is impeccable, and he knows exactly how to work the adoring crowd. The accordion interlude is particularly amusing, as is "Flight of the Bumblebee" played on a kazoo. Mixing pop, jazz, disco, and big band, Manilow moves smoothly through the two-hour set, alternately sitting at the piano or standing at the mike. The bluesy "That's Life" gets an infusion of energy from audience participation, and "Copacabana" is just as infectious as ever (with Manilow doing a little of that hip-swiveling). Ending with a heartfelt encore of "Stars in the Night," Manilow Live! is a must-have for fans of the man. --Dana Van Nest --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

this video and or DVD was inspired by the TV special "Manilow Country" that had aired on The Nashville Network where numerous country singers sung the praises of Manilow. shortly afterward, Manilow taped this concert in Music City. The show was a sell-out of course...all the songs are great and the performance rivals his other video showcases. his signature style is also captured: the piano thumping on up-tempo songs, the light touches on ballads, and in some songs where he doesn't play piano he ends each song with his customary arms wide open send-off as his famed big finishes fade into the sounds of the instruments. ironically, "Mandy", in previous concerts was usually near the end of the show...blending into "Could It Be Magic?"...it's odd hearing the song so close to the opening. "Even Now", which requires a LOT of energy if one insists on sounding the same or near the same as the original version from 1978, is the only one that'll show you that Manilow isn't as young as he used to be...but he makes up for it when he repeats the title at least two times in an effort to build up the big finish the audience is expecting to hear. There is also a Sinatra tribute where he sings "Chicago" and "That's Life". "Copacabana" isn't done as elaborate performance wise as we're used to...but no matter. it's a great video...

I just received the DVD today (ahead of schedule) and was compelled to write. I have always enjoyed Barry since he began in the 70s, and amazingly in this 2000 concert he sounds as if he hasn't lost one bit of his marvelous touch and range. He has evolved over the years into a master showman, and in many ways he is better than he was years ago. He truly loves what he does, and he displays the love in his smile, and mannerisms and with his interactions with his fans in the audience. You feel privileged to be a part of it. Just try and hold back the tears when you enjoy his classic duet "I Can't Smile Without You" with Michelle, the audience member he selects. Her heartfelt love and admiration for him, and his ability to capture the moment will have you envy the experience she'll treasure forever. Not surprisingly, the picture quality and audio are incredible! Wow, a real treasure that I'll be listening to and watching for years to come. Thanks Amazon for suggesting the DVD.

I was overwhelmed with the "feeling" in this DVD "treat". I've always loved the Manilow hits, but have never seen Barry in concert.
I never realized the "warmth" this wonderful man has. As he sang, he "felt" his music. Also, his interchange with a fan from the audience, who sang a duet with him, was truly "touching".
For whatever reason, I've never thought of Barry Manilow as sexy, but this DVD totally changed my mind. He is just a living doll. What I would give to have someone with that caring, charisma and humor in my life.
Seems Mr. Manilow lives next to Suzanne Somers and they have become wonderful friends. How I envy her. I bet he's a great friend.
As I watched this DVD I couldn't help but think to myself what a wonderful face this man has. That warm, wonderful, gentle smile. And . . . those eyes. You could see the purity in this man's soul. He has, in my opinion, the face of an "angel", and he and his music are truly a "gift" straight from God.
This DVD contains a song I used to love, which I had forgotten about. Never one of his big hits, but a wonderful song called "All The Time". I felt the tears on my cheek when I listened to him sing that song.
If you want a true "experience", purchase this DVD. I promise you, you will receive the "warm fuzzies" more than once.
I so enjoyed this DVD, that I bought his music "boxed" set, which is a great buy. Eagerly awaiting my delivery.
I hope Barry considers doing another live concert on DVD in the near future. WOW! What a wonderful entertainer.

Barry Manilow gets five stars. It's this horrible, defective DVD that gets 1 star. Those who have sung the praises of this DVD must have got lucky. The quality of this DVD is the WORST I've ever seen! Image Entertainment, who released this DVD, is known for their substandard releases. They do an even more incredibly poor job with Barry Manilow Live! The sound reproduction is fine, but nothing extraordinary. Now, why do I say buy the video? The DVD is severely defective and flawed!! I returned my first DVD to Amazon.com for a replacement. It literally stopped halfway through and would not continue playing. The second DVD I got is just as bad. They both skip, jump and freeze. This occurs about half-way through the concert. If this happens at the same spot on two different DVDs (Incidentally, you can't finish watching the DVD because it freezes and skips too much), then many of the DVDs must be poorly manufactured. I wish now I would have bought the video instead. Even the DVD extras don't work correctly. The concert itself (what I've been able to watch) and Manilow himself are superb. Manilow even sounds better than ever and I would swear has taken some voice lessons as his phrasing rivals that of any Sinatra or Darin or the like. So, if you love Manilow, get this - JUST BUY IT ON VIDEO, NOT THE DVD! So much for DVDs being infallible - believe me, they are!
