Doesn't have the same pizzaz as the greatest hits of the 50's and the 60's. Greatest hits of the 70's was somewhat boring in song selection and did not hold my attention.

Barry does a wonderful job at recreating these classic 70 hits! Favorites on the cd are "He Ain't heavey...", "Sailing", & "Bridge over Trouble Water". Very nice CD.

I really enjoyed this album -- it's probably my favorite one in his series of Greatest Hits of the Times (50s/60s/70s/80s).

This CD is 18 tracks of pain. Each song sounds exactly the same in production--polished, but bland, absent of energy and clever artistic choices. They're standards, but must they be sucked dry of originality or artistic-spirit? How many homogenized versions of "Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water" do the elevator's of America need? Speaking of bad S&G covers, a good way to think of Manilow, if you missed his 70s heyday, is an older, lamer Clay Aiken. Each song uses percussion to mark time it's like a railroad spike driven into the brain every 2nd and 4th beat. The vocals and the music never play off each other, probably recorded separately. The vocals on every track Manilow over-does, trying to wring every last drop of campy emotion from already syrupy selections like "He's not Heavy He's My Brother." This CD is what elevator operators commit suicide to.

His voice has never been better. Weekend in New England is amazing. Every song brings you right back to the 70's. Some of the songs were not my favorite in the 70's but they are now.

I like songs that were made in the seventies and what Barry sounded like in the seventies. His present day voice just isn't what it was years ago.
