Arista Records and BMG Heritage present ULTIMATE MANILOW, the most comprehensive single-CD collection ever released by the charter founding member of the Arista Records artist roster, Barry Manilow. ULTIMATE MANILOW salutes an artist whose "appreciation for the sophistication of the classic American popular song have long set him apart," as proclaimed in the liner notes written by Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild. With a generous 20 tracks and more than 75 minutes of music, the collection boasts every one of his hits to top the Billboard Adult Contemporary and Hot 100 charts from 1974 to 1984 - "Mandy," "It's A Miracle," "Tryin' To Get The Feeling Again," "I Write The Songs," "This One's For You," "Looks Like We Made It," "Weekend In New England," "Can't Smile Without You," "Even Now," "The Old Songs," and "Somewhere Down The Road."

Also included are his signature hits covering the same period, including "Could It Be Magic," "Copacabana (At The Copa)," "Ready To Take A Chance Again," "Ships," "I Made It Through The Rain," "Somewhere In The Night," and "Daybreak." [click here for complete track listing]

ULTIMATE MANILOW reflects the prolific 10-year period that prompted Radio & Records to rank him the Top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time, with record sales exceeding 58 million worldwide, beginning with the breakthrough hit of 1974, "Mandy" - Arista's first #1 pop and AC single. The collection ranges in time up through 1984's "When October Goes" from his all-star concept album, 2:00 AM Paradise Cafe (featuring jazz legends Sarah Vaughan, Mel Torme, and Gerry Mulligan). ULTIMATE MANILOW is the first release under the newly formed BMG Heritage label in partnership with Arista Records.

"The tune-filled story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Lola comes to life in this delightful musical. Bringing his hit song to life, Barry Manilow stars as Tony, a struggling young pianist/composer at New York's famous Copacabana nightclub who falls for beautiful showgirl Lola ('Smallville's' Annette O'Toole). Love is in the air, but smarmy rival nighclub owner Rico (Joseph Bologna) offers Lola a shot at the big time performing in Havana. When heartbroken Tony learns that Rico's intentions are not exactly honorable, chaos ensues! An irresistible combination of Manilow's infectious melodies, splashy song and dance numbers, and glitzy costumes, 'Copacabana' is a delirious musical romp the whole family will enjoy!"

"Easy listening legend Barry Manilow stars in this 1982 musical, based on the famous song of the same name. COPACABANA fleshes out the story of beautiful showgirl Lola and young nightclub pianist Tony, who falls madly in love with her. Though she reciprocates his feelings, Lola must put her personal life on hold to become a huge star on the Havana nightclub circuit. This flashy romantic musical is truly a spectacle of glitz and glitter." (Muze)

"This campy drama, set in the 1940s, was inspired by a hit song by Barry Manilow. It tells the tale of an aspiring songwriter, Lola, a showgirl, and the sleazy owner of the Copa. Tragedy ensues as the two men duel over Lola's love." (All Movie Guide)
