Barry's Concord Swan Song
By a song 4u
This cd would be the last for Barry's tenure at Concord, he would be lured back to Arista because Clive Davis returned and Arista, J Records, RCA, and Sony would be combined. This cd contains songs from Barry's movie and stage shows. "Dancin' Fool" was from "Swing Street" and this version is a re-recording, "Who Needs To Dream" is from the film "Copacabana" and is the original recording remastered. "Copacabana" itself is an updated re-recording with a more "house" arrangement, for a while the extended dance mix was available here on iTunes. The duet "This Can't Be Real" with Olivia Newton-John wasn't my favorite at first but it's not that bad really. Barry and Olivia would hook up for her Christmas album released in 2007 and again in 2008 with bonus tracks. Overall this album, hindsight suggests it was put together for label obligation, is well sequenced and mastered.
