5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully romantic for a quiet night in! 31 Oct 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album holds special memories for me from many years ago and I have been trying to find a copy for a while now. All the songs are well written and coupled with Streisands amazing voice, you cannot but enjoy this stunning album. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet and pensive night in alone with a bottle of wine, or us old romantics who love to snuggle up on the sofa with our favourite person, with candles, good food and great music. All songs are slightly different but all are romantic, one of my favourites is Kiss Me in the Rain, which she sings with such power, I defy anyone not to be moved by it! Get online and buy this album you romantics, its just wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Could this be the ultimate love songs collection? 14 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD is an excellent introduction to what Barbra Streisand does best. It does not contain her early 60s and 70s work, nor does it contain the passionate and playful Guilty-period scores. It is rather a masterfully put together collection of ballads that, coupled with her timeless voice, would move even those few ardent critics of her work.

Ms Streisand has released many best-of's, and any further addition does raise suspicion as a possible quick way to make money. This collection, however, is beyond reproach, and even a devoted Streisand fan will probably find a song not in their collection. This is due to the inclusion of songs that are omitted from most of the other best-of compilations, such as "New York state of mind" (if there is a more beautiful song about a place sung more movingly then I'd like to hear it), "Kiss me in the rain" and "A man I loved". Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of her best albums! 27 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
Released as "Love Songs" in the UK & "Memories" in the U.S. A major seller in the UK in the early 80's which included 4 extra songs than "Memories" released in the States. A beautiful mixture of Greatest Hits & other love songs... ranging from the haunting Andrew Lloyd Webber "Memory" from "Cats" to a short version of Disco (No More Tears) "Enough Is Enough" A duet with Donna Summer. All songs previously released except (3) tracks "Memory" & "Comin' In & Out Of Your Life" (A. Lloyd Webber) & an un-released version of "Lost inside of you". Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Songs And Memories - Barbra At Her Best. 13 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
When I decides to transfer my ageing Barbra Streisand favourite album via my Mac to my ipod, I kept seeing "Love Songs" coming up on screen as the Album name for each song, instead of Memories - which was the name of the album as released in Australia. Upon investigation I discovered that despite the title change, God was good and released the 14 songed original in Australia back in 1981 - where as the American version has 10 songs. In short, we got the Brit version.
This Love Songs/Memories Album has always been my favourite Streisand album, even more so than the most popular of her albums (as stated by Ms Streisand herself during a tour of Australia a few years back) "The Way We Were."
It was released on Columbia in 1980, then re-released in 1981 on CBS with four extra songs. It reached number #1 in Britain where it stayed for nine weeks and was the best selling album of 1982 in the UK. It was certified as platinum, and won the best album award in 1983.
In Australia it won 6x platinum and in the USA Memories/Love Songs won 5x platinum and reached number 10 in their charts.

This is NOT a greatest hit album, it's an early 80's album when Barbra had recently recorded Memory from "Cats" and the top 40 hit "Comin' In And Out of Your Life,". She then re-recorded "Lost Inside Of You," which she and Kris Kristoffersen had recorded together for their film "A Star Is Born" and included her take on Billy Joel's immortal "A New York State Of Mind." Adding songs like the Way We Were,You Don't Bring Me Flowers (with Neil Diamond) and Evergreen, enhances what was already a beautiful collection of songs and didn't bother me one bit.

By Mr. Nathan Armstrong VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
well barbra doesnt get any better than this!

"memory" the opener she handles amazingly well but the show tune isnt what this album is about! "you dont bring me flowers" with mr neil diamond is the start for me - an amzing song about love turning cold! barbra soars to heights..neil is passionate in a way not seen since "love on the rocks"

"my heart belongs to me" is amazing..the ultimate briget jones moment! on a par with "without you" by nillson! and babs delivers the hurt..the insecurity..the pheonix...rising from the ashes!

"wet" is so beautiful and a raindrop! its mesmerises you between loss and hope! "new york state of mind" is all blues and soul and its ok but not a one to bring a tear to your eye!

"a man i loved" sees a full return to form as far as love songs go...amazing vocals...and i mean amazing!

"no more tears" with donna summer has to be one of the best songs ever written and performed! ditch the man! you dont need it! shame its not the full lenght version! its not a love song but a song about love gone wrong and it stands out - doesnt fit with the rest..but its a classic on its own merits!!!

"coming in and out of your life" again is amazing...soaring vocals..perfect songwriting! "evergreen" is a beautiful proper love song and babs dfelivers an impeccable vocal!

"i dont break easily" is a huge song about getting over it! a bit bitter! a bit desperate! "kiss me in the rain" again is so pure and clear and faultless!

"lost inside of you" is amazing! "the love inside" is not a love song..its definately a getting over love song..its amazing! and to round of the album "the way we were" is another amazing breaking up song!

this is the most amzing album but not for lovesongs..

It was once said that the two great voices of the 20th century were Sinatra and Streisand. I don`t disagree with that.
