BARRY IS THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME!!!
This album show the talent Barry has for taking songs and making them his own and making them even better than before. He has given these songs new life they are uptempo and add that something special to your Holiday season. This album is the perfect addition to every Christmas party it will surely put everyone in the Holiday season spirit. Purchasing this album would be money well spent. I would have given it 10 stars if I had been able to. Barry just gets better with age he never goes out of style. I have been a fan of his for 33 years and enjoy him more with each passing year.
Short and Short.

Barry chose secular swingers for his second Christmas album, he didn't leave Concord for this cd, it's a joint venture between the two labels. All the song producton is huge, even Joni Mitchell's "River" is given a lush, subdued string arrangement. This cd is damn short, it clocks in just under 30 minutes. "My Favorite Things" is a standout, it's Rogers and Hammerstein meets "West Side Story" and my complaint is that the song is too short, in fact it's too short as a whole, making the end of this cd feel abrupt, there are cd5's that are longer than this. Buying this cd track by track instead of a whole will make you feel less cheated but I'm feeling more generous regarding the rating, five stars for production value including vocal, a zero for length of content.
Makes no sense

Why does Barry Manilow have a Christmas album if he's Jewish?

Wow, I'm usually not much of a "Barry Manilow" kind of person, but this album is great. Fun, festive, and full of christmas spirit. I know that sounds cheesier than cheese itself, but hey...what can i say? lol Good album.
