Music legend Barry Manilow will release a new DVD, First & Farewell, and a new CD, The Greatest Songs of the Sixties, on Tuesday, October 31, and I’ve got two copies of each to give away, courtesy of Rhino Records and Arista Records. Here’s the scoop on the DVD, from Rhino:

Hot on the heels of his Emmy Award for Outstanding Performance in a Music/Comedy/Variety Series or Special for “Barry Manilow: Music and Passion” comes FIRST & FAREWELL, Barry Manilow’s new double-DVD set from Rhino and STILETTO New Media. One DVD features never-before-seen, footage from Manilow’s inaugural tour rehearsal at Carroll’s Studio in New York City in 1974. The second DVD captures the final concert of the historic “One Night Live! One Last Time! farewell tour in 2004 – recorded at The Pond in Anaheim – with Manilow performing many of the songs that helped him sell 75 million albums, collect 29 platinum records and become the #1 Adult Contemporary artist of all time. 

Bonus features include excerpts from concerts in Las Vegas and Chicago, as well as two personal and reflective interviews with Barry. FIRST & FAREWELL will be available October 31 at all retail outlets and at www.rhino.com for a suggested retail price of $19.99. The DVD will be released on the same day as his latest CD, Greatest Songs Of The Sixties – the follow-up to his million-seller, Greatest Song Of The Fifties.

And the scoop on the CD, from Arista:

On October 31, 2006, the multi-platinum superstar will revisit this golden decade in Anglo-American pop music with the release of his new Arista album, The Greatest Songs Of The Sixties. This much-anticipated disc—the 59th album of his career—is the follow-up to The Greatest Songs Of The Fifties, released January 2006. That recording became Barry Manilow’s first Number One debut and his first Number One album since the triple-platinum double LP Barry Manilow/Live in 1977.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the DVD or buy the CD at Amazon.
