The Best Barry Christmas

Barry made 3 Christmas albums and recorded other Christmas songs not found on these albums. He did, however, release a Christmas Collection that included a couple of them including his first holiday hit from 1977 that he wrote It’s Just Another New Years Eve from Barry Manilow Live.
This album is the third Christmas CD released in 2007 and was only available at Hallmark Stores. It then featured a bonus track It Came Upon A Midnight Clear (which is stunning) that you could download free from his site. It originally featured 10 songs including some rarely recorded Christmas songs like Count Your Blessings and Violets For Your Furs. He also re-recorded Jingle Bells without Expose and matched it with Carol Of The Bells. Also featured is Christmas Time Is Here, Toyland and Silver Bells.
In 2009, it was officially released and included bonus tracks Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer and an original Christmas Is Just Around The Corner (from Cranberry Christmas) written by Barry Manilow. Unfortunately, It Came Upon A Midnight Clear was not included and was more in line with the original album concept.
Personally, this is my favorite Manilow Christmas album. His voice is great and the arrangements are timeless.
