For Barbra Streisand fans, this cd is a must.
Robert Kenney
This album may have been her thirteenth album overall, but it was to be her first-ever greatest hits compilation, featuring the hits from 1963 to 1969.

Mix her voice with these fun lyrics and compositions: FUN FUN FUN!

For those who enjoy Barbra Streisand's unique voice and dynamic delivery, this album is excellent. It is a fairly comprehensive collection of her best material from 1964 to 1969.
There are only two Top 40 cuts, "Second Hand Rose" and the wonderful "People", Barbra's only Top 10 offering of the period. However, it must be noted that with artists who are more accurately considered easy listening than pop, chart position is a very misleading gauge of the quality of their songs.
This album also includes a beautiful version of "He Touched Me", the tongue-in-cheek "Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long", the powerful "Don't Rain on My Parade" and the triumphant "Happy Days are Here Again." Granted, none gained particular commercial success, but all are very good selections.
Greatest Hits may be a bit too strong a title for a very diverse compilation, some of which just barely crawled into the Top 100 and a couple of which didn't make the list at all. Nonetheless, there are several very good songs here, more than enough to make this a worthwhile investment.

Barbra Streisand was the best selling female artist of the sixties (and would become the best-selling female artist of the twentieth century) with incredible string of hit albums during which she scored 11 gold records. It is more than a little ironic that during this time she only scored two Top 40 singles: the big hit "People" (#5 Pop, #1 Adult Contemporary), which is still perhaps her signature song, and the moderate hit "Second Hand Rose" (#32 Pop, #5 Adult Contemporary). Streisand did reach the Billboard Hot 100 eight more times during the `60s though, and recorded plenty of prime album tracks from her astonishingly consistent records which gives this compilation a justifiable reason to exist.

Some of the best performances of Streisand's long career are to be found here in "He Touched Me" (#53 Pop, #2 Adult Contemporary), "Why Did I Choose You" (#77 Pop, #15 Adult Contemporary), "My Man" (#79 Pop, #17 Adult Contemporary), "Free Again" (#83 Pop, #8 Adult Contemporary) and the stunning "Don't Rain On My Parade" (which was shockingly never issued as an A-side single). The charting single "Sam, You Made The Pants Too Long" (#98 Pop, #9 Adult Contemporary) makes it's only full length appearance on a Streisand album (it was previously only a part of the long "Circus Medley" from COLOR ME BARBRA), however, I really wish the rare single versions of "Happy Days Are Here Again" and "My Coloring Book" (which were completely different recordings than the album versions) had been included - even though the live version of "Happy Days" is stunning in it's own right.

Barbra Streisand's Greatest Hits gives us what is really just a sampling of her very best. This disappoints me because it is not a thorough "greatest hits" package; but what we do get here is excellent material. The sound quality is excellent and the artwork is very nicely done.

"People" starts off the CD with a smash hit for Streisand; she sounds like pure silk on this number and there couldn't be a better interpretation that the one Barbra does here! The strings are very beautiful and I like the harp, too. "Second Hand Rose" is an older number that gets a ragtime flavored musical arrangement--listen for that piano! Barbra aces this easily and I've always liked her rendition of "Second Hand Rose." It makes me smile whenever I hear it. Great!

"Why Did I Choose You" is a tender love song that Barbra makes glisten like gold when she delivers it so flawlessly; Barbra Streisand fans are sure to love this tune! Barbra sings her heart out on "Why Did I Choose You" and just one listen proves it. There's also "He Touched Me;" this ballad is a wonderful highlight of this album. Barbra is able to capture the joy a woman can feel when her one true love shows his affection for her; and that's grand.

"Free Again" is quite a stunner; this somewhat torchy song moves with its beauty. However, what really impresses me the most on this album would have to be "Don't Rain On My Parade" from Funny Girl. Barbra opens us and lifts this tune to new heights; I've never heard anything like it. Barbra's delivery of "Don't Rain On My Parade" is truly one of her best masterpieces ever.

"Sam, You Made The Pants Too Long" is another song that makes me smile; this nostalgic tune gets the royal treatment with what sounds like a washboard used as a type of percussion treatment.

This collection, simply titled GREATEST HITS, features the best of Streisand's recordings from the sixties before she took off for an even better (and more successful) career as a more pop oriented performer in the seventies. But no matter which decade your're more found of, this is a must-own for any Streisand fan.
This album, mostly containing standards and show tunes, includes the pop singles "People" and "Second Hand Rose," which were two of her biggest hits of the 60's. Also making an appearence are two more songs from the film version of FUNNY GIRL, the show stopping "Don't Rain On My Parade" and her classic rendition of "My Man."
"He Touched Me" is beautifully arranged, while she explores heartache in the unusual "My Colouring Book" and her sense of humor in "Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long." A live version of "Happy Days Are Here Again," from A HAPPENING IN CENTRAL PARK, closes the package with a sense of hope and a promise of what the future would bring.
