Album Notes and Credits
Personnel includes: Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond (vocals).
Producers include: Phil Ramone, Barbra Streisand, Gary Klein, Charlie Calello, Bob Gaudio.
For the Streisand completist, purchasing every album she's recorded is money well spent. If you want to cover just the more well-known material in her career, you can buy GREATEST HITS or the JUST FOR THE RECORD box set. But GREATEST HITS VOL 2 is in itself an excellent representation of her 70's material. Included is "Evergreen (Love Theme From A Star Is Born)," possibly Barbra's most endearing ballad. The song is worth the price of the CD alone. But every song on this disc is choice Streisand. The monumental "The Way We Were" is essential, while "Sweet Inspiration"/Where You Lead" is a good sampling of Barbra's live performance.
Taking a break from ballads, "Stoney End" is a classic rock-oriented track. The standout on the record is definitely "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," a duet with Neil Diamond. After their respective solo versions were released, inventive radio DJ Gary Guthrie spliced both vocals together to create the smash hit version on this album. It's amazing how one artist can represent a period of time, and that's the case with this record as many of the landmark tunes here conjure "memories of the way we were".
Artist Overview
One of the most successful and influential singers ever, Barbra Streisand is a powerhouse performer and pop culture icon. Blessed with a distinctive, highly resonant voice, she transformed her early Broadway success into a recording, acting, and, ultimately, film-directing career. Since her 1963 debut, The Barbra Streisand Album, she has remained one of the best-selling artists in each decade, with over 30 studio albums to her credit. To her name, she has ten Grammy Awards, two Academy Awards, and nine Golden Globes, including one for her 1983 directorial debut, "Yentl" (she also starred in and supplied the soundtrack for the film). Of her many career hats -- vocalist, songwriter, actor, producer, director -- singing will always be her golden legacy and the launching pad for her singular career. ~ Matt Collar
