Product Description

Product Description

For the first time ever in a career spanning over 50 years, Barbra Streisand has curated a compilation of previously unreleased material, to come in the form of Release Me her first album of this kind. Having accumulated hundreds of previously unreleased recordings in the course of her unparalleled career, Barbra spent a year in the painstaking process of going through this body of work picking the pieces for this unique collection. Highlights include a striking version of "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today" with Barbra on vocals and Randy Newman on keyboards from 1971, and “With One More Look”, an unreleased track from her top selling album A Star Is Born.
Release Me was produced by Barbra Streisand & Jay Landers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbra releases it all 17 Nov 2012
By archie
Format:Audio CD
Just when you thought you had heard all you could hear from our beloved Babs... here comes this lovely collection of some of her hidden gems which for a reason or another couldn't be released at the time she recorded them. My favourite track is the Randy Neuman penned "I Think It's Going To Rain Today" but all the songs are worth more than a listening and an appreciation. Highly recommended and hopefully looking forward to getting a volume 2, should Barbra decide to release some more unissued stuff in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Streisand in her prime 10 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having got everything she's ever released this new album is a coup as it reminds you of just how great Streisand was in her prime.Powerful, dramatic and very much the most sensational of voices in full range. I shall be listening to this for many years to come. I play all her albums regularly anyway and for me, this is a perfect companion to my collection. I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent previously unreleased material 15 Jun 2014
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have bought plenty of Barbra's music through the years, more than a dozen different albums, some twice because I bought them first on vinyl and later on CD. However, I'm not a diehard fan and I don't routinely look for her new releases, so it isn't surprising that I missed this one upon its initial release. I found it by accident while reviewing a Larry Gatlin album, I was surprised but delighted to find that Barbra had recorded Try to win a friend, and instinctively knew that it would be worth listening to. So it is, along with the rest of this collection.

I see that some customers are disappointed but I fail to see why. Most of the tracks are typical of those that Barbra normally records - only the Gatlin song is outside her usual areas. Such songs as Didn't we, Willow weep for me and I think it's going to rain today are exactly the kind of songs most people would expect from Barbra.

I get the impression that Barbra had plenty of unreleased material to choose from, and if so, she wasn't exactly scraping the barrel. (There have been cases of barrel-scraping involving other artists, mostly dead ones.)

I am most impressed by the selection here and look forward to another volume sometime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling Streisand 8 Oct 2012
By Judeski
Format:Audio CD
An amazing offering from an amazing artiste. Barbra never fails to deliver music and songs that are top of their class. Her recordings, spanning an exceptional 50 plus years, have been a constant companion through my life. Her "Happening in Central Park" album was the first that I ever purchased as a teenager. Her voice, her extraordinary talent is, for me, beyond compare. This cd is a joy - and the fact she she has personally picked these tracks to re-visit adds to this album's charm and delight. A must-purchase for all Streisand fans. You won't be disappointed! Thank you, Barbra ... and here's to the next one!
