The film score of FUNNY GIRL does vary greatly from it's Broadway counterpart.
Byron Kolln
The exception in a Streisand soundtrack is that we follow the different emotions and progressive experiences of one personality through each song.
Peter Andronas
The old cd version was quite muffled, and I am happy that this album has finally been remastered.

This newly remastered 2002 edition(above and beyond the previous remastered CD that has the little white sticker added)has "Hello Gorgeous" sound. Everything is crystal clear. The men responsible for the great job are listed on the tray insert, so you know you have the correct edition. The only reason this didn't make 5 stars, as I thought there would be bonus tracks or expanded editions of some of the songs to fit the way they are presented in the film. With 80 minutes of time now available on CDs, this could've been possible. I absolutely adore this film and the score, but as a new edition, and the recent remastering of the film in Technicolor and Digital Sound, it would have been nice to add after the Overture (in the expanded version used on the DVD and Quad album), put the Opening Credits music, which has been presented as the Finale since the first album was released. "Don't Rain On My Parade" never includes the music and the boat whistle when she's running to get the tugboat that happens between "Hey, Mr. Arnstein, here I am" and "I'll march my band out" in front of the Statue of Liberty. "The Swan" is shorter than what was used in the film, and even what was used in the film is edited down. On the DVD I was disappointed that even as bonus footage, The Swan was not reconstructed in its full format prior to editing for the Road Show Release, as this was talked about. You also have the Entr'Acte music from the Intermission, and the music over the credits after My Man, and Exit Music. The Entr'Acte and Exit Music is now included on the DVD. If possible for the 40th Anniversary of the film in 2008, a complete soundtrack with the missing parts could be issued, and with bonus tracks featuring 45RPM single-only studio recordings of Funny Girl, I'd Rather Be Blue Over You and any other song be added on.

The film soundtrack version of the "Funny Girl" score may lack some of the intimacy of it's Broadway counterpart, but Barbra's sensational belting is even more impressive the second time around. The film versions of "I'm The Greatest Star," "You Are Woman," "Sadie, Sadie," and especially "Don't Rain On My Parade" are actually superior to the earlier versions, with Barbra giving even better vocal performances. While it doesn't quite match the superior single version from 1964, the film version of "People" (the third studio recording of the song) is lush and very beautiful in it's own right.
The lovely "I'd Rather Be Blue Over You" and the stunning "My Man" (two of Fanny Brice's standard numbers) are worked into the score and prove to be highlights as does the title song, newly written for the film by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill. It's no surprise that Barbra received the Academy Award for best actress for her work in this film. The "Broadway Cast" album has a more intimate feel to it, but the film soundtrack version of "Funny Girl" is a master work in it's own right and just slightly surpasses the earlier recording.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Byron Kolln HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on September 16, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Barbra Streisand will forever be linked to the autobiographical Fanny Brice, a role she originally made her own on Broadway in 1964 and in London the following year; immortalised onscreen four years later (earning an Academy Award as well as countless other trophies). On the original soundtrack album, Ms Streisand is in prime vocal condition, though I do prefer her performance on the OBC album just a little bit more, for she is more brash and unkempt and far more vulnerable with her spin on Fanny. In the film, she is more confident and showman-like.

The film score of FUNNY GIRL does vary greatly from it's Broadway counterpart. The roles of Mrs Brice and Eddie Ryan don't get much to sing (with the deletion of "Who Taught Her Everything?" and "Find Yourself a Man"). Fanny's solo numbers "Who Are You Now?" and "The Music That Makes Me Dance" were abandoned in favour of numbers that the real Fanny was famous for ("I'd Rather Be Blue" and "My Man"). I believe the producers committed the cardinal sin with the deletion of "The Music That Makes Me Dance", a ballad far more memorable and moving than the show's big number "People" (and I know a lot of others feel the same way). Nevertheless, the film soundtrack of FUNNY GIRL is the perfect sonic representation of Streisand's greatest hour on celluloid.

I own the earlier Sony CD pressing (which is full of analogue hiss, reverb and noise), yet from what I hear about the more recent "remaster", the quality of the overall recording is virtually the same. Highly-recommended, but don't expect miracles with sound quality.

I am a twelve year old Barbra Streisand fan. I bought this CD, and I absolutely loved it. The songs are lively, and there are times when Barbra tries to sound comical. I had seen the movie before buying it, and I was able to recall all of the moments while listening to the CD. I can listen to this CD over and over. Songs like "I'd Rather be Blue", are catchy and you can imitate Barbra rollerblading. Among the best are "Sadie, Sadie", and "Don't Rain On My Parade." If you are a first time buyer than this CD is worth your money.

"Funny Girl" is Barbra's greatest album and film.She even said in a interview it's her favorite.I played the hell out of this album when I was a kid.I couldn't stop laughing when I heard some of these numbers,"I'm the greatest Star," when Barbra keeps making joke's while she's singing this classic,"Did you hear the one about the traveling salesman?"The funniest moment from the movie is on this record,when Fanny Brice is pregnet singing,"His love makes me beutifull," and "Sadie Sadie." "when he comes home I tell him,Oh,what a day I had today." When Barbra was recording this album,I heard she recorded "People" over and over again.The producers were happy with the first take,but she wasn't.When Barbra approved the final take,everyone in the room was crying. The score for "Funny Girl" by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill is a classic,especially "Don't rain on my Parade." There's not one song from this soundtrack that isn't fantastic. You have to get this CD if your a fan of Streisand.
