Five of the Legendary Performer's Beloved Television Specials Are Collected for the First Time with a Historic DVD Boxed Set Spotlighting Programs that Aired Originally Between 1977 and 1988. The First Barry Manilow Special, winner of an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Music Special" in 1977, was seen by more than 37 million people who watched Manilow and his back-up group, Lady Flash, deliver sensational live versions of the classic tracks "It's A Miracle" and "Mandy" along with "A Very Strange Medley." Nominated for four Emmys, The Second Barry Manilow Special was taped at the celebrated Pantages Theater in Hollywood and featured Ray Charles as a special guest, plus debut performances of "Daybreak," "Can't Smile Without You," "Looks Like We Made It," and "Copacabana (At The Copa)." The late John Denver joined Manilow as a special guest for The Third Barry Manilow Special, which earned an Emmy for "Outstanding Achievement in Choreography." Barry's fourth special in as many years, One Voice, was also nominated for an Emmy, and featured Dionne Warwick as special guest. Barry Manilow: Big Fun On Swing Street combined the great sounds of big bands, hot jazz and Latin rhythms, and features a number of guests including Kid Creole and The Coconuts, jazz greats Carmen McRae and Gerry Mulligan, and singers Diane Schuur and Phyllis Hyman.
