Barry Manilow is the sixth self-titled album released by singer and songwriter Barry Manilow. Manilow released a total of six self-titled albums in his career: Barry Manilow (later re-released as Barry Manilow I), Barry Manilow II, Barry, Manilow, and this album with the same title as his first. The album was released in 1989, and reached Gold certification. This album also represented a hint of future album releases...95% of the songs were not written/co-written by Manilow, which had up until that point been rare. Manilow, known for being a composer, typically always stocked his albums with material he co-wrote with his celebrated lyricists. After the release of this album, the 1990s dawned and a new era in his career began as he embarked on introducing contemporary audiences to pop music of the 1930s through the late 1940s. This album is also one of his longest of original material, clocking in at nearly an hour. There are few up-tempo songs, favoring ballads of which he is known to perform.

The hit singles from this album:

  • "The One That Got Away"
  • "Please Don't Be Scared"

In concert, "A Little Travelling Music, Please" became a favorite.
