    On the heels of Barry Manilow’s winning Las Vegas show Music and Passion and his hit albums The Greatest Songs of the Seventies and The Greatest Songs of the Sixties, Rhino has released a five-DVD set, Barry Manilow: The First Television Specials. The set contains of The First Barry Manilow Special (1977), The Second Barry Manilow Special (1978), The Third Barry Manilow Special (1979), One Voice (1980) and Big Fun on Swing Street (1988).
    By the time The First Barry Manilow Special aired on March two, 1977, a string of hits including Mandy, It’s a Miracle, Weekend in New England, Looks like We Made It, and Daybreak had now established Barry Manilow as one of the hottest stars on easy-listening broadcasting and a sought-after inhabit performer. The extraordinary productively aggregates rousing inhabit performances videotaped at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois with studio segments in which Manilow explores his early sources through song. As a first pianist and arranger for Bette Midler, some of her effect comes through in Barry Manilow’s stage act.
    One of the studio segments finds Manilow chorus a duet with Laverne & Shirley’s Penny Marshall of his hit, Bandstand Boogie. While Marshall very distinctly isn’t a songster, she gives the number panache only Laverne DeFazio could muster. In a somewhat striking sequence, Manilow sings New York City Rhythm, Sandra and Early Morning Strangers. The First Barry Manilow Special went on to win the Emmy for Outstanding Musical Special of the year.
