1979 Barry Manilow – One Voice

One Voice is the sixth studio album by singer/songwriter Barry Manilow, released in 1979. It was recorded at United Western Studios and Allen Zentz Recording in Hollywood. The album was a signature of a minor decline in Manilow’s success. It reached 2x platinum, not 3x platinum, as his past six albums did. The album only contained one top ten hit, “Ships”, which peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The title track was featured in a lengthy segment in the British comedy show Only Fools and Horses, where the show’s central character Del Boy starts singing the song outside a block of flats late at night after he’s been drinking, starting a riot.
