Product Description

Amazon.com

Hollywood loved this story so much they remade it every 20 years or so for much of the 20th century; Barbra Streisand imbued it with so much forceful persona in 1976 that they haven't touched it since. The romantic/musical pairing of Streisand and Kris Kristofferson (chosen when no less than Elvis Presley turned the role down) may have been one of the era's strangest but, anchored by Streisand's elegant, Oscar-winning hit theme "Evergreen," it nonetheless yielded the biggest-selling album of the singer's career to date. That neither star is particularly convincing as rock icons--particularly Her Divaness--seems beyond the point of this fable. Instead, both stars take the opportunity to stretch outside their usual personas a bit, Streisand with the R&B teaser "Queen Bee" and confessional "Woman of the Moon," Kristofferson on rousing, theatrical fare like "Watch Closely Now" and "Hellacious Acres." --Jerry McCulley

Though I loved the over-bloated movie in its day, it has not held up nearly as well as this soundtrack, which features a wealth of superb songwriters strutting their stuff via Barbra and Kris Kristofferson. Barbra's pseudo rock/pop/diva material is mostly exceptionally well-performed, most of all her lovely simply ballad Evergreen. But in retrospect, it is Kristofferson's melancholy wailing -- remember he was about to hit rock-bottom during the making of this movie -- that has lasting power and angst. I particularly love Crippled Crow and his version of Watch Closely Now. This is a soundtrack worth having as a monumentally well-produced product from the mid-70s.

This soundtrack to the film blockbuster (which became the second highest grossing movie of that year) was also an enormous success itself, spending six weeks at #1 and selling over four million copies in the US alone. A monster hit, the film is entertaining and moving, and this is reflected in the soundtrack. A STAR IS BORN is at it's best during Streisand's seven numbers, which feature astonishingly powerful vocals that resonate in the memory even long after the disc has ended.

The Streisand-penned composition "Evergreen" (with lyrics by Paul Williams), with it's haunting melody and classical-style timbre (very typical of her work), is one of the grandest pop records ever recorded. Artistic justice was served when the song also became a huge commercial smash, hitting #1 on both the Pop and Adult Contemporary charts and winning several armfuls of awards. The other song with music composed by Streisand, "Lost Inside Of You" (a surprisingly effective duet with leading man Kris Kristofferson), features a similar classical slant and perhaps could have been a hit as well (that is if it had been released as a single). The remainder of the Streisand tracks were recorded live in front of an audience ("Evergreen" and "Lost Inside Of You" were also recorded live, but in the studio), and these amazing performances will make listeners wish Streisand had given more concerts in the seventies.

Some of this material (especially Rupert Holmes' "Queen Bee") is second-rate and forgettable, but even then Streisand's vocals make them more memorable than they deserve to be. My favorite concert selections are the scorching "Woman In The Moon" and the heart-stopping medley "With One More Look At You/Watch Closely Now." On the downside, the disc has a somewhat disjointed feel (typical of pop-oriented soundtracks) and Kristofferson's three solo numbers are monotonous and sound out of tune. However, Streisand's vocals are fabulous and will make this a must-own for fans.

I bought this album not because of Streisand, like most of the people who have reviewed this album, but because of Kris Kristofferson. He has been one of my favorite singers since I was young, and the songs here don't do him justice. I post this review to let people know that the songs here should in no way reflect Kristofferson's abilities as a singer and a songwriter. The songs here were written by other songwriters for this movie, and his character was a burnt out singer whose career was going down the tubes. Keep this in mind as you listen to his singing here. One need only to listen to any of Kristofferson's albums to know that the scratchy growling voice heard here (almost a deadringer for Tom Waits, which is what makes the songs listenable) sounds nothing like the singer when he makes a valid effort to make music.
As for the soundtrack, the duet with Streisand was good, "Hellacious Acres" is pretty funny, and the opening song (Kristofferson's main hit in the movie) is okay. As for Streisand, I have to admit her voice has a great range and this CD, as well as the movie, is a good showcase of her abilities. That's what the movie was about, and again I stress: don't judge Kristofferson by these songs.

I keep coming back to this CD! I bought one of the LP albums when the movie came out, then to a cassette, and now the CD.

I loved the movie, and I love the music...you're cheating yourself if you haven't seen it and have any romantic bones in your body!

After all this time, I still love every single song...I'm so glad to see this remake! Thank you for that....

I liked this movie. I don't care if anyone else did. It's a re-make and I'm no expert on the original. I like to be entertained and this movie and its music did. So, I like the CD as well. I will say this: you can listen to the words to the songs and, for the most part, they speak to you. No gibberish (although that's okay sometimes, too.) Lots of hooks, and Streisand is great. I'm not offended by Kris Kristofferson either. Listen to it 3 times and you'll fall in love with it.

I received this album on CD for Christmas in 1994 when I was a junior in high school. I grew up with the LP. I was happy with the CD, as it was the first CD version, excellently remastered by Bernie Grundman. The 2002 remastered version was really the disappointment and I'll explain why. In 2001 to 2003, many remastered original albums were coming out, from Madonna to Michael Jackson to the British group Culture Club. All of those CDs had extra tracks. However, this CD did not. I wish they added the following songs to make it a true soundtrack. Here are 5 major tracks that should be added and remastered for us:

1) Spanish Lies sung by Kris Kristofferson. If you remember in the film, this is when in the beginning he is on the stage asking the Speedway what the words are, and the song is also playing on the cassette deck when Quint is in the pool.

2) Evergreen from the Just for the Record Streisand Collection. This version has Barbra playing the guitar and humming the song in front of Kris from a scene that was deleted from the film. But this is not all. In the middle of the humming, we hear the rest of the song in its original released version we always hear traditionally on the radio. It really works!

3) Lost Inside of You from the Just For the Record Streisand Collection. This actually is the best song on Just For The Record, and my favorite song and scene in the film. In this song version, we hear the exact scene from the film, with Barbra playing the piano and Kris adding the lyrics. When Barbra losses her focus on the music, just like in the film, what is added is Barbra singing Lost Inside of You solo. It's similar like the duet on this album, but Barbra's voice is dubbed over Kris's voice.
