Barbra triumphs again,
This review is from: Barbra Streisand: Back To Brooklyn [CD and DVD]  (Audio CD)
Just got my DVD/CD - have to say was buying out of loyalty to a woman who has entertained me since I was 12, not today or yesterday. I had all the other concerts so was afraid it would be more of the same. However I am happy to report that as usual she has packaged the show differently and there is a lot of new material, i.e. not done in concert form before. True her voice is in some ways not able to hug the melodies as before, but some will prefer the rougher, less perfect sound. The arrangements compliment the more mellow vocal range and I marvel as to how she can make Evergreen seem so fresh after so many other renditions. Jason Gould was the revelation of last year, he has a superb voice I wish he would record some more. But singing with his mom but have been a delight for both and sure is for the viewer of and listener to this concert. Well worth buying no matter if, like me, you have everything Barbra has ever issued. While a die-hard fan, I am not afraid to criticise and not one of those fawning types that thinks that everything the lady produces is flawless. But this time I have to hand it to her.... another triumph.
