Recorded in September 1974, with Clive Davis at the helm with Manilow and Ron Dante. Adapted from Scott English's 1971 UK hit, "Brandy"; retitled to eliminate confusion with Looking Glass' 1973 hit. Davis, trying to decide if Manilow would stay on his new Arista roster, went ahead and released both "Mandy" and "Barry Manilow II" on Bell prior to the closing of the deal to acquire Bell. The song was Bell's last and Arista's first #1, taking nine weeks once hitting the charts to get to #1 in January 1975. Needless to say, Manilow stayed and anchored the label's first ten years, before being dumped and signed by RCA. Some demo discs of that era had the B-side on them, but many were sent with the A-side in mono on one side and in stereo on the other, because many AM stations then still did not have stereo equipment and stereo singles didn't play correctly on them.

I have this 45 its a great song. 
After that, Bell Records folded in to Arista Records and Barry Manilow was the first artist signed to the new Arista label.
I used to stack 8 to 10 45s on my motorola record player.
That was 38 years ago. 
You're breaking my heart. Wrote an autobiography and my son read it. Once while sitting on the back porch I asked him what he thought my problem was, he simply said "Page 55, Kelly." Sometimes we are so broke we just can't be fixed.
