Released in 2012, the concert album Live in London features legendary singer and songwriter Barry Manilow performing at the 02 Arena in 2011. Backed by the illustrious Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Manilow runs through a bevy of his most popular songs, including "Can't Smile Without You," "Bring on Tomorrow," "Mandy," and "Copacabana." Also included are his takes on such covers as Rupert Holmes' "Studio Musician," a medley of standards including "Daybreak," "Somewhere in the Night," and his "Looks Like We Made It," as well as many of his other hits. This is a solid and well-produced live album that should appeal to many longtime Manilow fans. ~ Matt Collar
