Ravinia Throwback: Barry Manilow

Barry Manilow by Alan Light

This week in Ravinia Throwback we have something truly outstanding. While browsing our archives of photo slides from 1976-1983, I was informed that in the 1977 season, a music special was produced using Barry Manilow show footage from Ravinia Festival. It went on to with an Emmy for Outstanding Music Special and after doing some searching around the internet I found the special on YouTube!


It is my pleasure to bring The First Barry Manilow Special to you. It's a bit long, but highly entertaining. He is a true entertainer, and you would be remise not to watch this special at some point. We would love to hear what you think about this special on Facebook, Twitter, or right here at our blog. Time to dust off the old fedora, and head into the archive again, see you next week!
