These duets with some of music's all-time greatest performers is Barry's way of celebrating the legacy of these legendary artists when they were at the prime of their careers.
Manilow's genius as an arranger shines through when he takes the original vocal performances of these iconic stars and recasts them in duet settings with newly recorded tracks.
