Album Review

Between the release of Barbra Streisand's first hits collection in 1970 and her second in 1978, she essentially became a different kind of recording artist. In the 1960s, she made a series of consistent albums devoted largely to show music material, but she scored precious few singles hits, with only one, "People," and reaching the Top Ten. But in the 1970s, she shifted to contemporary soft-rock and released a series of highly successful ballad singles, while her albums became largely inconsistent. For that reason, the hit quotient of her second hits album was much higher—"The Way We Were," "Love Theme From 'A Star Is Born' (Evergreen)," and the duet version of "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," sung with songwriter Neil Diamond and released on album here for the first time, all were number one hits, while "Stoney End" and "My Heart Belongs to Me" were Top Tens and "Sweet Inspiration/Where You Lead," "Songbird," and "Love Theme From 'Laura Mars' (Prisoner)" reached the Top 40. That was enough material to make Volume 2 Streisand's definitive hits collection, so much so that later compilations like Memories and A Collection/Greatest Hits...And More would be forced to cannibalize it. It was also a genre-defining album in terms of the emergence of a post-'60s contemporary pop music that drew upon the rock revolution to redefine classic pop for a new generation.

Customer Reviews


Not simply one of Barbra Streisand's greatest albums, full of many of her greatest hits of the 70's, but one of the greatest pop albums ever. And to the unfortunate soul who thinks that the songs Stay Away and Deep in the Night were on the original LP, I can assure you that they were not. They were songs from her album, "Songbird", and weren't even singles. I still remember the day when I was sixteen years old and bargained with my Mom at KMart to give me enough money to be able to buy the LP. I told her that it could be half hers, and, since she loved Barbra, too, she consented. Thanks, Mom. And thanks, Barbra, for so many splendid memories.

Missing Some Cuts

This album was great, but the change in format from LP to CD seems to have left the last two cuts in the dust. There were twelve cuts on the LP by this title. The last two were "Deep in the Night" and "Stay Away." Seems to me that a lot of CD space was simply wasted, and the fans shortchanged, when they changed format.

Barbra Streisand's status as one of the most successful singers of her generation was remarkable not only because her popularity was achieved in the face of a dominant musical trend -- rock & roll -- which she did not follow, but also because she used her vocal skills as a mere stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and as a film director. Born in 1942 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she struggled briefly as an actress and nightclub singer in New York during the early '60s...
