An Overlooked Gem

I remember watching a late-night talk show and seeing Barry Manilow perform "Keep Each Other Warm." It would prove to be a moderate hit from this album, made past his commercial prime. Standout tracks from this cd include "Please Don't Be Scared" and "A Little Travelling Music, Please" Arista was really getting know for it's sonics and audiophiles were fans, although this cd may come off a bit quiet by today's standards. The songs here are mostly introspective and Barry was posed on the cover looking pensive complete with trendy manicured facial stubble. Outside of the climax of "Keep Each Other Warm" Barry's vocal is subdued, only going "full voice" for one song. Orchestra was widely used by Barry early on but strings are traded for electric keyboards and string simulators but this album with it's tender readings comes off warm.

studio songs limp compared to lush live versions

I like most people who are fans of manilow, we heard alot of the songs off this album live before we actually got the CD and I was taken aback by how songs that sounded so warm and lush and orchestral live....ending up sounding so weak and limp in their studio versions. I mean "some good things never last" while sounding like a romantic piano ballad with strings in concert....here, sounds like something cheesy off some teen radio disney tune. the sounds used were really tinny sounding modern synth stuff, when he should have used an actual piano and orchestra.

while there are a few gems,such as a little traveling music and you begin again, but most of the songs here are fairly forgettable.

In terms of record sales and career longevity, Barry Manilow is one of the most successful adult contemporary singers ever. That success hasn't necessarily translated to respect (or even ironic hipster appreciation) in most quarters; instead, Manilow's music has been much maligned by critics and listeners alike, particularly the romantic ballads that defined his career, which were derided as maudlin schlock even during his heyday. It's true that Manilow's taste for swelling choruses and lush arrangements...
