AllMusic Review by

This 2008 U.K. compilation offers up a decent 20-track overview of one of modern pop music's most successful singer/songwriters. Music and Passion: The Best of Barry Manilow doesn’t skimp on the classics ("Can't Smile Without You," "Mandy," Copacabana," "I Write the Songs"), and the inclusion of a track from each of his popular Greatest Songs of the 50's, 60's, and 70's albums, as well as a previously unreleased cover of Paul Young's "Everytime You Go Away" helps to sweeten the pot, resulting in a solid set of Cliffs Notes for the Manilow novice.
