Editorial Reviews

No Barbra collection can possibly be without the three albums in this 3-CD set. She was a fresh new face when she charmed the world with Funny Girl ; the album shot to #2 in '64 and she scored huge hits with the title song and People . A decade later came The Way We Were , then A Star Is Born in '76 35 Streisand essentials!

I picked up this "sort-of-boxed set" at a relatively inexpensive
price, and I must say it's well worth it. I am a huge fan of
Miss Barbra, but never got around to buying the individual CD's
of "The Way We Were" or "A Star Is Born". "Funny Girl" I did
own in it's original CD incarnation. Now you can purchase all
three for less money than you would spend if you got them
separately. They come housed in a long box with a very attractive Early 70's-era photo of Babs on the cover. Inside
are the three CD's and the 3 insert booklets you'd find with
the individual CD's. All three CD's have been recently
remastered, and all sound great. All in all, a good idea.
And now, the CDs themselves:

What can you say about "Funny Girl" that any fan hasn't said
a thousand times before? One of the greatest musical comedy
performances of all-time, and perhaps the most auspicious film
debut by a major actor or actress EVER. Barbra, on this CD,
shows just why people were just astonished by her talent in the
early years. The individuality, charisma, vocal tone and just
plain greatness are evident here, even without the visuals of
the movie. And the score is fantastic.

"The Way We Were" is one of her best pop albums, all the more
surprising when you realize it was basically a slapdash affair,
put together to capitalize on the hit single and success of the
film. There is not one bad performance on this disc, and there
are several classics besides the title hit. It's amazing, and
here Barbra's voice is at it's peak (and that was a LONG peak!).

From the top, she's the top. The top female vocalist of our time. That said, most people (certainly even her medium fans) already own these three "albums". It certainly is an eclectic group of several of Streisand's biggest sellers in her long and storied career.

You don't get much more Broadway/Hollywood than the motion picture soundtrack to FUNNY GIRL (where she won a well-deserved Academy Award for Best Actress along with the legendary Katharine Hepburn in a historic tie). THE WAY WE WERE (where she should have won Best Actress flat-out and a Grammy for best female vocal, but didn't) has always been a favorite studio collection for many Streisand fans, and it truly is like two albums in one... the more contemporary selections (Paul Simon, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, etc.) of "side one" closing, more or less, with a tribute to the beautiful lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergan.

Then, it's off to the Grammy-winning A STAR IS BORN. Had there not been the huge #1 success of this album, the fans might never have been treated to the rockish GUILTY album (not on this set) that finished out the decade. And many may well not remember what a huge seller STAR was, as a film, and in this case, as a soundtrack. It was right up there, sales-wise, with other huge albums by Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, and the Eagles.

As a sidenote to the music, the cover is a beautiful shot of Barbra Streisand with her longish hair. So, if you are just discovering Streisand (you're either very young or have been living in a cave), this is a terrific way to start your collection. The liner notes for each are included inside.

Now, if you're looking for extras, you won't find them here.
