Just another compilation,
This review is from: The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
I adore Barbra but why on earth do the studios think we need another greatest hits/best of/ultimate collection. I'm not knocking her but as a die hard fan there's nothing new here. Get "The Essential Collection" instead if you don't own any of her albums!

I adore Barbra too yet agree also with the comment that we dont need yet another best of album of Barbra, nice to see the recommendation of one of her others, get that one......you got the best really.

Just to say I couldn't agree more with the review. Why oh why another compilation was necessary is beyond me. I am convinced that this does not have so much to do with Barbra as much as it does with record labels trying to milk beyond good taste an otherwise undoubtedly successful career. As the reviewer mentions, The Essential Streisand is the thing to go for if you are looking for an excellent overview of a scintillating career. And then you'll take it from there, like I did a couple of years ago. Oh and by the way another excellent best-of collection is "Love songs" (released in the US I believe as "Memories").

Thanks for the review I have gone for the Essential Collection as suggested rather than the Ultimate.

Don't buy it then. What's the problem?
I read that some of Essential has live recordings. If so I'd rather have the studio recordings.
