When will we see the likes of talent like this again?,
This review is from: Barbra Streisand: The Concerts (DVD)It is true that Barbra's voice has changed over time. In the 2006 concert DVD you will notice that her range is lower and there is, at times, some hoarseness, which I did not notice at the two concerts that I attended. Nevertheless, it is still a remarkable instrument and her interpretive abilities are in full force. If in doubt, simply listen to "Unusual Way". I recently attended a Celine Dion concert and, although her voice is in top form, as an audience member, I did not feel a connection to her singing. When Barbra sang "People" at the St. Paul concert, I was astounded at her ability to deliver this song to the audience after 40 years of singing it. She simply touched us all at the level of Soul.
In the 1994 concert DVD, Barbra was in top vocal form. I especially recommend the 1994 concert CD which is taken from her New York performance. Her rendition of "My Man" from that concert is vocally stunning.
Well my friends, I think that this 2006 concert DVD is Barbra's swan song, at least in terms of singing concerts. So don't be overly critical; simply watch and enjoy one of the greatest performers to ever grace the stage. When will we see the likes of talent like this again?
