Barry Manilow completed sessions at Ocean Way (L.A.) for his new album, The Greatest Songs of the Fifties (CD/DualDisc). The album includes remakes of many great tunes, including the Four Lads’ “Moments to Remember” (1955), the Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream” (1958) and Bobby Darin’s “Beyond the Sea” (1959). The album is now available (at press time, it had debuted at Number One) and features behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the record.
