The Way We Were
3.  The Way We Were by Barbra Streisand
The list author says:
  "Culled from recordings Streisand had yet to release, this is nevertheless a very cohesive album.  "All in Love is Fair", "Being at War with Each Other" and "Something So Right" fit snugly into her stylizing but less face it, any album that has "The Way We Were" as the title song is going to be just fine."

The Broadway Album
4.  The Broadway Album by Barbra Streisand
The list author says:
  "Slightly marred by the metallic instrumentalizing of the mid '80s, this is nevertheless a great Streisand offering.  "Somewhere" is a bit screechy but "Something's Coming" is marvelous and "Not While I' Around" and "Something Wonderful" are beautifully sung.  "Adelaide's Lament" is one of the most unusual things she's recorded."

Barbra Streisand Album
6.  Barbra Streisand Album by Barbra Streisand
