Manilow Shines As Usual
L. D. Auerbach | Elkins Park, Pennsylvania United States | 03/15/2006

"I too have seen the PBS Special along with the concert Manilow Music & Passion in person. This concert duplicates his live show perfectly and it is nothing short of fabulous. Barry is his usual self and the energy he shows during this concert especially at the end is amazing. I did not find his interaction with the audiance to be any less during this concert compared to any others. In fact he is much more energetic during this performance. The price on Amazon is a bargain considering that to receive this DVD from PBS they were requiring a pledge of $120.00. The amazon price is a bargain."
Mega-Vegas Manilow
Kathy W | Baltimore | 08/02/2006

"Barry's phenomenal high-energy Manilow Mega-Vegas extravaganza! With over 27 superb musical arrangements, spanning approximately 1 ¾ hours, Barry croons our favorites, like the eternally sexy "Somewhere in the Night." He does a super-cool rendition of Mandy where he plays and sings along with a video clip of himself from his very early days. Wait till you hear the `50s "Bandstand Boogie" and "Venus," with Barry Avalonio, not to mention "Love is a Many Splendored Thing" and "Unchained Melody"! You'll see a big stage Vegas set come down from the ceiling in Copacabana, `cause it is cookin'! Barry's got fans rockin' in the audience from age 20 to 120 for this show, as a matter of fact, they hardly ever sit down! He does this DVD so well, you feel like you have a front row seat and he's singing directly to you.

And if all that's not enough, there's a 2nd DVD, almost an hour long, full of behind-the-scenes extras, like tours, interviews, rehearsal, stage setup, photos, and three additional song clips. Whaddah sweet deal! This guy just keeps getting better all the time, a magnificent DVD from a super guy who truly values his fans. Just when you were happy with the 110 % he always gives, he raises the bar to 130 % !

No wonder this DVD set hit 3 times platinum barely a month after it's release! "Doctor, they won't have ta give ya something to get that feelin' again" if you get this DVD! And you'll want to watch it over and over again.

PS--This makes a great gift for somebody who loves Manilow Musik!
Great Manilow Concert in HD
Ralph Brown | Suffern, New York | 01/16/2007

"I wouldn't normally have reviewed this disc, but considering the only review was from a disgruntled XBox owner, I had to throw in my two cents. I have encountered absolutely NO difficulty playing this disc on my Toshiba player.

Here's a great concert. I had this one on regular DVD, and this one blows out the conventional DVD. You can count the beads of sweat on Barry's forehead. The widescreen picture will fill a wide set, and the music is presented in 4.0 surround (meaning there's no added pounding bass) and it's pretty much enhanced stereo.

The set of music is very strong with the highlights being the two tracks taken from Manilow's HARMONY score. "Every Single Day" is amazing, and a choir comes in to take on "Stars In The Night." Barry does a nice selection of hits and album cuts (I was very happy with the inclusion of "All The Time" which he rarely performed in concert "back in the day"). You will not feel slighted.

In the end, great picture, great show, great purchase for pop and Manilow fans. The disc has got a nice price tag, too."
