This version of JUST FOR THE RECORD is packaged in a jewel case rather than a box. Includes 48-page booklet. Compilation producers: Barbra Streisand, Martin Ehrlichman. If ever there were an artist deserving of a box set, it is Barbra. This 4 CD set contains 77 songs, 50 of which are previously unreleased. There are studio, live, demo and duet tracks along with a 92 page illustrated booklet written by Barbra. This set does not disappoint, covering her entire career and is comprehensive enough that the listener feels a strong grasp for the artist's work. The opening song, "You'll Never Know" was recorded on December 29, 1955 at Nola Recording Studios in New York City when Barbra was 13. "Keepin' Out of Mischief Now" begins no less than 8 tracks recorded live at The Bon Soir Club in The Village in 1962, which Barbra recalls as some of the happiest nights of her working life. Barbra shows her cultural side on "Hatikvah", featured in "The Stars Salute Israel At 30", an ABC-TV special. This box set is more than a large greatest hits collection; it is a glimpse into the artist's soul by the artist, as Barbra handpicks her fondest recordings for the world to share.
Q (2/00, p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...a thing of wonder over nearly 100 tracks spread over 4 discs covering 1955-'88....the voice is as good as she thinks it is; the duets and forced banter with Judy Garland are spine-chilling..." New York Times (Publisher) (1/1/92) - "..an absorbing pop-historical document that includes some thrilling vocal performances.." New York Times (Publisher) (9/22/91) - "..a significant document of modern pop-music history ...What stands undiminished is her supreme dramatic command, her ability to take a flowery romantic ballad and make its sentiments seem ineffable, transcendent.."
When she emerged in a 1960s pop scene dominated by rock & roll, Barbra Streisand was a breath of fresh air to those nostalgic for the great Broadway-oriented pop vocalists of the past. Her stratospheric range and (initially) anachronistic taste in material made her the new Grande Dame of non-rock pop music. Along the way she experimented with the flavors of the day, from folk-rock to disco, but she always returned to the Great American Songbook for inspiration.
