Barry Manilow

BACK STORY

Since the original hit recording of “Let’s Hang On” by The Four Seasons, it has been recorded by many artists, including the 1982 recording by Barry Manilow, which put the song back on the singles charts.

The song was first released in Manilow’s ‘If I Should Love Again’ album. Clive Davis released it first in Australia, as he discussed with Denny in a meeting the two had at Arista Records shortly before any singles from the album were released. It quickly went Gold there and was then released internationally, becoming a hit in the U.S and many other countries.

Barry later told Denny that he’d been singing the song in his live show and the great audience response moved him to record it.
