Format: Audio CD
A four-disc collection of material that had mostly been previously unreleased, JUST FOR THE RECORD is a fascinating package indeed. Unlike most box-sets, this is not an extended "greatest hits" repackaging with a few rarities to pull in longtime fans. Sure, there are a few well-known recordings present ("People," Guilty"), but over 85% of the tracks on JUST FOR THE RECORD had never seen the light of day. This is exactly what many of Streisand's dedicated fans had been hoping for.
The first two discs are dedicated to material recorded in the sixties, and they include many live recordings from the decade when Streisand gave the most public performances. Live performances culled from Streisand's appearances on "The Jack Paar Show," "P.M. East," The Garry Moore Show," The Tonight Show," "The Ed Sullivan Show," and "The Judy Garland Show" are all absolutely priceless. Eight tracks from Barbra's legendary "Bon Soir" performances (which were initially intended to be her first record) are included, and they present the then-twenty year old singer at her rowdy best. This is the Streisand that many of her sixties fans dearly miss.
The two sixties discs also cover her years on Broadway (previously unreleased live performances from FUNNY GIRL), performances from her first four television specials (including three songs from the still- unreleased BELLE OF 14TH STREET soundtrack album), and a terrific live medley from her performances at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, which includes her only recorded performances of "When You Gotta Go" and "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning."
The remaining two discs (one devoted to the seventies, the other to the eighties) feature less live performances, but are just as enthralling.

I am wowed by this 4-disc set. It is a wonderful career retrospective with a generous selection of songs from the 60s (2 discs), 70s, and 80s. Also comes with a beautiful booklet that illustrates the career history.

There are many songs never heard on this album that are excellent. No cast offs here, just great stuff. I particularly enjoyed the songs recorded at the Bon Soir -- you feel as if you are there. One can see why Barbra caught fire -- this great voice and a wonderful New York personality -- and an infectious giggle. She was the real deal and bursting with life. No wonder people loved her. A breath of fresh air.

My favorite disk is the 70s and the song "The Singer" which was never released. There is a duet with Burt Bacharach and some wonderful renditions of 70 classic songs.

Woven in with the music are award ceremonies and the famous line "Hello Gorgeous" when Barb accepted her oscar with Funny Girl. Even original Funny Girl performance live on stage. The kid is giving it all she's got even if her technique wasn't perfected at that point.

This is a wonderful retrospective on Streisand's record breaking career and a must have for any fan or newcomer to "The Greatest Star."

Barbra Streisand is the greatest female vocalist of our time. Discs one and two alone would be more than worth the price of this box set. The medley from the Judy Garland show is pure gold. If you're considering making this purchase for a Barbra lover in your family - do not hesitate. Any true Barbra fan would be meshugah to pass up an opportunity to have all of this greatness in one pink box.

What a grand collection this is of the legendary Barbra Streisand, full of unreleased verisons of Barbra's classics, landmark events in her career, unreleased studio and live tracks, original demo recordings, TV appearances, never-before-released show tunes, live nightclub performances, award nights and duets with Judy Garland, Ray Charles, Neil Diamond and more. This collection is approximately 4 hours long all together, it comes with a collector's book of rare photos and a song-by-song personal commentary by Barbra. "Just For The Record" covers every song that had a important impact in Barbra's career up to the point of releasing this boxset. The collection includes Barbra's first song that she recorded at 13 years old called "You'll Never Know". It also includes live songs from her first appearances on TV shows such as "The Ed Sullivan Show", "The Johnny Carson Show", "The Judy Garland Show" and many more. It also includes Barbra winning the best actress Oscar for "Funny Girl" and winning the Oscar for best song "Evergreen" which she wrote. It includes Barbra winning the 1965 Emmy for "My Name Is Barbra", Barbra singing "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" with Neil Diamond at the 1980 Grammy Awards. This collection also includes Barbra's famous songs most of them live versions like "A Sleepin' Bee", a live solo version of "Happy Days Are Here Again", a live "Cry Me A River" and many many more that Barbra is known for. Demos include "What Are Doing The Rest Of Your Life (duet with: Michel Legrand), "Evergreen", "Papa, Can You Hear Me?", "The Moon And I", "A Piece Of Sky" and even a score from "Nuts" that Barbra composed herself. This is a must, a absolutely for any Barbra fan.

An endearing and fantastic retrospective of one of the most unbelievable and dynamic performing talents the world has known. Very detailed and enlightening. More than just a glimpse into the spectacular career of Miss Streisand. Worth every penny. You'll lose yourself in the music, films, awards and personal commentary. An absolute treasure.
