Swing Street is an album by composer and singer Barry Manilow, released in 1987. Most of the tracks on the album featured Manilow in a duet with another singer. The tracks were recorded at various locations. The album only reached Gold, despite all the outside talent brought in to record it. This album marks Manilow's return to the Arista Records label from RCA Records where he had four releases from 1985 to 1986 including Manilow. The title of the album refers to 52nd street in Manhattan, between 5th and 6th Avenues, which was the jazz mecca during the late 1930s and early 1940s.
