Manilow, Barry/Barry and Bette


Hello John,

Could you please tell me what exists audio / video wise of Barry and Bette's time together from 1971 - 1973.



As far as I know, the only thing available is that film shot at the Continental Baths.

I'm fairly sure this was not an 'official' video (that is, I think this was filmed for personal reasons, rather than to be released as a commercial product), but it survives.

There is also the footage from her debut on Johnny Carson:

The camera pans from Bette to Barry at about 1:51.

Bette comments about Barry on her "Intimate Portrait" on Bio:

I'm pretty sure that, other than the album releases, that's it. There may be a copy of the Carnegie Hall concert that Barry paid for somewhere, but I haven't seen a copy.   The search goes on ... thanks for writing !  --JB

I can answer almost any question about Barry`s music and videos: Content, lyrics, instruments, arrangements. You know -- the important stuff! ***PLEASE NOTE: I don't work for Barry or his organizations. I don't know him personally. I'm like that guy on PBS that talks about Mozart, the knowledge is based on 35 years of study, not from any insider information. *** --JB


40 years of collecting his music and being a fan. I also own an extensive collection of recordings, interviews, books, magazines and rarities for Barry Manilow.
