Barbra Streisand

POP

When Barbra Streisand belts a bravura “Being Good Isn’t Good Enough” (from the musical Hallelujah, Baby!) to kick off this album, it could be her personal theme song. After all, she is the ultimate perfectionist, so you know she has compiled this collection of previously unreleased tracks from the “vault” with meticulous care. Recorded throughout her career-from 1967 to 2011-these cuts showcase her versatility, with genre turns from jazz (“Willow Weep for Me”) to country (“Try to Win a Friend”) and bossa nova (“Lost in Wonderland”). Bring on Vol. 2!
