Description

Offered for sale is an original U.S. copy of Barry Manilow, the self-titled debut LP by Barry Manilow, featuring the withdrawn original mix and the original cover.

When reissued in 1975, the album featured a different cover, a new mix and re-recordings of four songs (“Sweet Life”, “Could It Be Magic”, “One of These Days” and “Oh My Lady”.)

About this copy: This copy of Barry Manilow is a 1973 U.S. pressing on the Bell label.

The cover is VG, with moderate ring wear on the front and the back cover.

The disc is M- and looks unplayed.  Clean disc!

A nice copy of a surprisingly hard album to find.

Background: Barry Manilow was the first of more than 30 solo albums by singer/songwriter Barry Manilow.  Unlike his later LPs, this one featured no chart hits; the two singles “Sweetwater Jones” and “Could It Be Magic” both failed to chart.

The album peaked at #28 on the U.S. album charts.

Barry Manilow was only in print for a short time; the album was deleted not long after release and was reissued in 1975 with a different title (Barry Manilow I ), a different cover photo, and new recordings of four songs from the album.

Allmusic.com gave the album a 3 1/2 star review:

Barry Manilow’s debut album proves to be a far different animal than its glitzier successors; it’s fairly raw and unpolished, though his dramatic vocal style is already well established here. …Manilow came across as having plenty to say, but without a clear roadmap of how he wanted to say it. Manilow and producer Ron Dante would clear up that problem on the next album, Barry Manilow II, but if you want a sense of where it began, here’s where you start.
