5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best compilation of Barbra�s music, 22 Jan. 2003
This review is from: The Essential Barbra Streisand (Audio CD)
As with Elvis, everybody has their own preferences when it comes to Barbra's music. I generally like her seventies music best, but (as with Elvis), I like most of her music, including everything here, all presented in chronological order. The first CD covers the sixties and seventies, while the second CD covers the eighties and beyond.
People, Second hand rose and Happy days are here again are, perhaps, Barbra's most famous sixties songs here. Also included is Barbra's version of Cry me a river, altogether more dramatic and defiant than Julie London's original. It's interesting, but I still prefer the original.
Stoney end, The way we were and Evergreen are among the seventies classics included, along with two duets - You don't bring me flowers (with Neil Diamond) and No more tears (with Donna Summer).
The eighties started with Woman in love (my favorite track here) followed by Guilty (a duet with Barry Gibb). Her first Broadway album is represented by four songs, including Send in the clowns and Somewhere.
The nineties yielded I finally found someone (with Bryan Adams) and Tell him (with Celine Dion). It seems that, by then, Barbra needed a fashionable duet partner in order to have a big hit single.
Throughout the collection, there are many other fine songs, too numerous to mention. If you haven't got any of Barbra's music, this is the place to start.
