Product Description

BBC Review

Who is the highest-selling female recording artist ever? It's not Madonna, Celine Dion or, bless her, Dolly Parton. Nope, with 47 gold albums in a 40-year career, Barbra Streisand shows them all a clean pair of heels in the diva stakes. Only Elvis has sold more records. Not bad for an actress who sings, as she once described herself.

La Barbra's 57th album, "Duets', is a collection of 17 duet hits and two new tracks. Given that there is very little previously unheard here, does this album illustrate anything more than the impossibly glamorous contents of Streisand's address book?

Well, yes. Even the most faithful Streisand acolyte must be delighted by the range of songs and singers assembled. There is 70s disco with the high priests of glitterball: Donna Summer and Barry Gibb. Streisand and Michael Crawford engage in a 'who-can-hold-the-note-longest' competition in Lloyd-Webber's "The Music of the Night". (The winner, of course, is Streisand.) And there are chart hits in the form of 1978's wistful "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" with Neil Diamond, and the 1998 epic "Tell Him" with Celine Dion.

Two new tracks bookend the previously-released pieces. "I Won't Be The One To Let Go" with Barry Manilow is a soaring, feel-good ballad. "All I Know Of Love" with young baritone Josh Groban brings the album to a stately close and shows that Barbra can still hold her own yet another new generation.

Best of all are two gems from the start of Streisand's career. "Ding-dong! The Witch is Dead", sung with a deadpan Harold Arlen, the Wizard of Oz soundtrack composer, is witty, jazzy, almost avant-garde in its syncopation. It would barely be recognised in Munchkinland.

Backed up against it is an exquisite duet with Judy Garland, recorded live in 1963 on The Judy Garland Show. "Get Happy / Happy Days Are Here Again" counterpoints two classic songs, with Streisand's pure, youthful notes pirouetting around Garland's throaty, unbearably melancholy voice. Simply thrilling.

Getting a duet with Streisand is an essential step on the path to musical superstardom. Robbie Williams must be hoping that his phone rings very soon. --Morag Reavley

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful and diverse collection 4 May 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
When the double-CD Essential was released a few months before this, I was disappointed that some great duets were missing, although all the important solo tracks were included. I was therefore particularly pleased to be able to buy this collection. All the duets that were included on Essential - You don't bring me flowers, No more tears, Guilty, Tell him and I finally found someone - are reprised here, but they couldn't have been omitted from either, being among Barbra's biggest hits.
Two newly recorded songs - I won't be the one to let go and All I know of love - bookend this collection, no doubt included to ensure that Barbra's most fanatical supporters need this.
Some of the songs here reflect Barbra's acting career, including I finally found someone (from The mirror has two faces), Lost inside of you (from A star is born), two tracks from Back to Broadway (I have a love / One hand one heart and The music of the night) and Ding dong the witch is dead (a cover of song from The Wizard of Oz).
Everything here is brilliant, but my particular favorites are Make no mistake he's mine (a song that topped the country chart when recorded by Kenny Rogers and Ronnie Milsap as Make no mistake she's mine), If you ever leave me and You don't bring me flowers.
If you enjoy any of Barbra's music, you will love this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Streisand at her best 30 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
I like Streisand, but this collection proves to me, that for me, she's really at her best when her voice is mixing with someone elses. The tracks are truly varied - great easy listening and for singing along to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine collection. 12 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
As I searched for a Barbra Stresand cd. featuring 'Tell him', where she duets with Celine Dion, I came across this one and could'nt be happier with my choice.
There really can't be anyone who has duetted with so many great artists across the decades, ranging from the great's like Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Johnny Mathis & Ray Charles, through to Barry Manilow, Barry Gibb & Josh Groban, to name but a few of the 19 artist's you can enjoy harmonising with Barbra's mesmerising voice here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Achievement! 15 May 2010
By Nicholas Casley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are seventy-five minutes of duets on this CD, covering a wide range of styles and sounds over almost fifty years of Streisand's career. Two are from the 1960s (and are rarities in their own right); five are from the 1970s; five each also from the 1980s and 1990s; and finally two from the last decade. These last two are new tracks, one a duet with Barry Manilow, the other a duet with Josh Groban.

Others here include the gravelly-voiced Bryan Adams, the strong vibrato of Johnny Mathis, and the spoken-style of Neil Diamond. Donna Summer has Streisand's strength, but not her subtlety, but I suppose it is Celine Dion who comes closest to Streisand's vocal powers. Kim Carnes cannot really compete at all on her level, but the voice of Don Johnson is for me the most perfect as a singing companion to Streisand. On one track Streisand even gets to duet with herself.

So, overall, there's a mixed bag here, but I counted only one terrible track, namely the painful duet with Kris Kristofferson. On the other side of the coin, I counted four tracks worthy of five stars, namely `Guilty' and `What Kind of Fool' (both with Barry Gibb); the fantastically composed and arranged `You Don't Bring Me Flowers' (Neil Diamond); and the equally well-written and produced `If You Ever Leave Me' (with Vince Hill - who?).

Over the years Streisand has sung with the best; but this album demonstrates that she is probably THE best English-speaking singer of the last fifty years. Some achievement!
