For the first time, 15 of Barry's most outstanding and memorable performances with an A-list of singers have been collected for his newest release - Duets.  The title will be available at all physical and digital retail outlets starting May 3, through Arista/ Legacy. Duets is a timely reminder of Barry Manilow's successful residency at the Paris Theater in Las Vegas, with performance dates now extended into 2012. "I'm very proud of this album," Manilow said recently. "Recording each song was a thrill because these singers are so great, but listening to all of the cuts back-to-back was an overwhelming experience. Getting the opportunity to sing with them was an honor." With worldwide record sales exceeding 80 million, Barry Manilow is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time, according to R&R (Radio & Records).  His track record includes no less than 25 consecutive top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100.
