Manilow, Davis Look To '60s For Next Set

Barry Manilow could turn the chart-topping success of "The Greatest Songs of the Fifties" into a series. "We've already begun the '60s," BMG North America chairman Clive Davis tells Billboard.

Davis, who masterminded and co-produced the initial Arista set as well as the similar in nature "American Songbook" for Rod Stewart, will pull together a list of hit songs appropriate for Manilow, who will have final say on what makes the cut.

Davis says the success of these albums is due to a compatible marriage among the artist, song, arrangement and production.

"I love the fact of the dual association of how long an artist can last and reinvent himself, and with the right copyright and arrangement, how many ways a song can be reinvented," he says.

Manilow admits originally dismissing Davis' idea of cutting '50s songs. "I didn't get it when he suggested it, but I got it when I started studying the idea."
