Barry Manilow – Copacabana (At The Copa) (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 28th June 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978

DISCO FRIDAY!

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on July 29, 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Copacabana” is a 1978 song, sung by Barry Manilow and written by Jack Feldman, Barry Manilow, and Bruce Sussman.

It is also known as “Copacabana (At the Copa)”. It debuted on Billboard magazine’s Top 40 chart on July 7, 1978, and peaked at #8. It peaked at #42 in the UK the same year. A remixed version of the song peaked at #22 in 1993. The record earned for Manilow his first (and only, to date) Grammy Award in February 1979 and his first gold single for a song he composed.

The song’s title refers to the famous New York City night club, the Copacabana, and tells the story of Lola, a showgirl, and her lover Tony, a bartender at the club who is murdered by Rico, a Mafia lord who took an interest in Lola.

The recording was used as incidental music in the 1978 movie Foul Play, which starred Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn, and has been featured in over a dozen other films. The single version clocks in at 4:08, the Extended Disco version is titled “Copacabana (At the Copa) (Disco Version)” and is 5:46. As opposed to a commercial 12″ single, the extended version was on the B-side of the 45 and can also be found on Manilow’s first Greatest Hits double album.

Manilow released a Spanish version shortly after the English version. Available as a 12″ disco single, “Copacabana (En el Copa)” didn’t chart on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, but was used by dance club disc jockeys.

In 1985, Manilow and his collaborators Bruce Sussman and Jack Feldman expanded the song into a full length, made-for-television musical, also called Copacabana, writing many additional songs and expanding the plot suggested by the song. This film version was then further expanded by Manilow, Feldman, and Sussman into a full-length, two-act stage musical that ran at the Prince of Wales Theatre on London’s West End for two years prior to a lengthy tour of the UK. An American production was later mounted that toured the US for over a year. Over 200 productions of the show have since been mounted worldwide.

This one sided US 12″ promo contains the original full length 1978 “Disco Version”.
