This is one of my favourite Streisand's albums. Her voice is fresh and her style is innovative. Her renditions of Carol King's songs are delicious and powerful. You've got a friend is one of the best songs she has ever recorded. Buy it and you'll discover a very special Barbra, full of energy and style.

This is my favourite all time Streisand album. With Fanny arranging and backing on the wonderful but strange "Space Captain" and "Where You Lead". To her medley of bacharach and david "One Less Bell To Answer/A House is Not A Home" (check out the glee version on 3) renditions of john lennon tracks and my all time favourite song Laura Nyro's " I Never Meant to Hurt YOu" not a dud track on this album and pure class and pleasure with the tracks I've listed Streisand at her very best.

An overlooked classic! 3 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like STONEY END, the album before it, many Streisand fans seem to ignore 1971's BARBRA JOAN STREISAND. Though it peaked at number 11 and spawned a top 40 single with "Where You Lead," the album has had little self life and stopped selling at Gold.
If you are true Streisand fan, or simply want to see how diverse she was in the seventies, you should pick up STONEY END and BARBRA JOAN STREISAND. While SE had a heavy folk feel to it, BJS heads off straight into rock.
Barbra provides the definite versions of Carole King's "Beautiful," "Where You Lead," and "You've Got A Friend" as well as delivering covers of John Lennon's "Mother" and "Love" that surpass the originals.
For those of you who also love the old torch-style Streisand, there are old-fashioned piano-based ballads like "I Never Meant To Hurt You" and "Since I Fell For You." However, the majority of the material here is rock based, such as her stunning version of "Space Captain."
This glorious album deserves a second look and, with the digital remastering, it's never sounded better!

Soulful & magnificent...Bravo Barbra! 18 Sept. 2003
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a music loving teen in the great musical sixties, bacame a Streisand fan from her amazing performance on the extraordinary "The Judy Garland Show", next came the phenomenal "Funny Girl" classic, then Barbra showed incredible artistic growth with the release of the great but strangely overlooked "What About Today" Lp, growth continued with the contemporary classic "Stoney End" release, next hit new heights with "Barbra Joan", an incredible mix of everything this wondrous singer does best...John Lennon masterful "LOVE" is haunting and mesmerizing, "MOTHER" is a truly extraordinary vocal sung with heartstopping passion. Laura Nyro's gorgeous "I NEVER MEANT TO HURT YOU" is a very fine vocal which is deeply moving and Laura Nyro herself must have enjoyed this heartfelt performance. "ONE LESS BELL TO ANSWER/A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME" is a dazzling tour-de-force medley where Barbra's gorgeous voice soars to amazing heights and the effect is so stunning that this becomes one of her greatest ever recorded performances...produced by Richard Perry, Barbra was at her creative and vocal peak throughout this wondrous collection so if you love great singing do not miss this...both "THE SUMMER KNOWS" and "SINCE I FELL FOR YOU" contain hauntingly beautiful Streisand vocals plus Barbra knows how to rock out with a brilliant take on Elton John's "SPACE CAPTAIN" which has to be the definitive version of this classic...marvel at a talent who can take a wide variety of works to their ultimate peak and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime legend at her peak...THANK YOU Barbra Streisand!

A contemporary gem from Barbra 25 April 2008
By C. Warner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By the late 1960's musical tastes were rapidly changing and many artists, Ms. Streisand among them, decided to dip their toes in the contemporary sounds that were so popular among young people at the time. In 1969, Barbra released her first album composed of contemporary material; titled "What About Today?", Barbra performed songs that had a modern sound and feel, including "Alfie" by Burt Bacharach & Hal David and "Honey Pie" & "With A Little Help From My Friends" by Lennon & McCartney. "What About Today?" however was not a commercial success...perhaps it was the selection of material or maybe it was the fact that Barbra was currently being seen on screen in the big-budget musical "Hello, Dolly!". Barbra would try the contemporary market again in 1971 with "Stoney End". This time it was a success and Barbra found herself with her first (non-soundtrack) album to be a bestseller in many years. Later in 1971 Barbra would release her third contemporary sounding album "Barbra Joan Streisand". While this album doesn't have the amount of great tracks that "Stoney End" did, it does have three gems that make this album worthy of any serious Streisand collection. Two of these, "Since I Fell For You" and "The Summer Knows (Theme From "The Summer of '42")" are masterful performances. The real true gem though is the medley "One Less Bell To Answer/A House Is Not A Home" which Barbra performs in a duet with herself (this feat is quite amazing and effective, especially considering this was 1971) and she brings a masterful, emotional presence to these two Bacharach/David classics.

A footnote, this album was also originally released in a "SQ/Stereo-Quadraphonic" mix (Columbia LP - CQ 30792) - the remixing done for that version is a far superior to the regular stereo version that was released (which is the version used on the CD release). It would be great if Sony someday remastered the Quadraphonic version to SACD.

Beautiful she is! 10 Jun. 2003
By Det. Abilene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While criticized at the time of it's release for attempting to mix too many different styles of musical genres into one album, BARBRA JOAN STREISAND has nevertheless endured as one of the brightest gems in Streisand's massive catalog. Sequencing soft ballads next to mild rockers may have seemed disorientating in 1971, however time (and repeated listenings) has uncovered and enhanced the disc's unique sense of dizzying cohesiveness.

The hit was "Where You Lead" (#40 Pop, #3 Adult Contemporary) but virtually every track is a treasure, and they play out in a highly satisfying manner. Her powerful renditions of John Lennon's "Love" and Laura Nyro's "I Never Meant To Hurt You" are stunning and her bone-chilling take on Lennon's "Mother" brings down the house. In between the contemporary cuts, Streisand even manages to deliver the definitive renditions of the often-covered standards "The Summer Knows" and "Since I Fell For You."

However, the absolute show-stopper is the Hal David-Burt Bacharach medley "One Less Bell To Answer/A House Is Not A Home," which Barbra brings thrillingly to life with a dramatic intensity that deserves comparisons with even the very best performances of her long career. This album was successful when it was initially released (it hit #11 on the Hot 200 and went Gold), however I do not believe it has received the respect it deserves from Streisand's fans and remains among her most underrated recordings.

Barbra's most rocking album 9 Dec. 2002
By jon sieruga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
From the piano-pounding "Beautiful" to the head-spinning, gospel-tinged rocker "Space Captain", it's apparent Barbra was intent on conquering the rock music corner, and she's entirely capable, esp. with Richard Perry's smart production behind her and help from all-girl rockers Fanny. It also features one of those lost Streisand performances that must rank as a classic and a career high-point: her vocal on Laura Nyro's "I Never Meant To Hurt You" may be unequaled, it is so incredibly beautiful. Other highpoints: a gritty little gem called "I Mean To Shine" and a wild version of John Lennon's "Mother"(with Barbra fully in-character, stunningly so). Probably Barbra Streisand's best CD out there.
