Barry Manilow

Arthur Levy, Zoo World, 20 December 1973

BARRY MANILOW sits at the piano flanked by Sharon, Robin, and Charlotte, affectionately known as the Harlettes onstage, and it looks like a scene out of an honest-to-god 40's musical, you know, the one with the struggling young songwriter on the verge of the Big Time rehearsing with the girls, putting the finishing touches on 'You Gotta Get A Gimmick', from Gypsy.

Total word count of piece: 1370
