    Dave Koz's smooth saxophone on "Do You Know Who's Livin' Next Door?" ushers us into HERE AT THE MAYFLOWER The album is Manilow's first release of original material in over 10 years, and he sounds reinvigorated, with a new sense of passion. The songs are each meant to represent different apartments at the Mayflower, with a story behind each one. The characters Diane and Ken are both starting their lives anew "Come Monday." Barry's voice sounds as powerful as ever on jazzy ballads Border Train" and "I Miss You," and upbeat party numbers "Turn The Radio Up" and "They Dance."
    "She Shoulda Been Mine", with it's sorrowful string section, tells of his longing for a girl who's with the wrong guy. "The Night that Tito Played" is a wonderful tribute to Mr. Puente and expresses how Barry's life was forever changed by seeing the man perform. MAYFLOWER reunites Barry with collaborators Adrienne Anderson and Marty Panzer, who were responsible for some of his biggest '70s smashes. The talented maestro touches the listener in a personal way on MAYFLOWER, an album that ranks among his best.
