Early Barbra!! She Sounds Great Aug. 12 1999
By Matt Howe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This review album is recorded well and is very lively and entertaining. Barbra Streisand sings mainly on 4 songs: "Doin the Reactionary" is a jazzy little number... "Nobody Makes A Pass At Me" is in the style of Barbra's famous "Miss Marmelstein" or even "Adalaide's Lament". She is hilarious and the lyrics are very witty.... "Status Quo" is kind of a history-lesson song, but Barbra shines.... and "What Good Is Love" is a ballad in which Barbra hits some wonderful notes and sings with feeling. If you're a Streisand fan, this album is a must-have.

Barbra on 5 songs: worth the price! May 19 2005
By jon sieruga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tribute album to an old Broadway favorite managed to catch a young Barbra Streisand on her early rise to fame(what was she?...Nineteen?). She's delightful on "Doin' the Reactionary" and "Status Quo", but her big number "Nobody Makes a Pass at Me" sounds as if it were written especially for her. She makes these songs her own, even though they were not from her generation. Far removed from the current era, it's amazing that "Pins & Needles" still sounds fresh and lively.

an under-appreciated classic of musical theater Jan. 17 2012
By nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Pins and Needles has a dozen songs that are smart, wise, funny, charming and eminently hummable and singable. Appreciating a few of the lyrics are helped knowing something about the domestic and international politics of the era (written and first performed in 1937). But it remains a delight. All of the voices are strong, including a great, and very young Barbara Streisand.

Another one of Babra's early album if you are a great Streisand fan you have to have this album. Avery young Barbra but the voice is so pure it's wonderful her best song I think is DOING THE REACTIONARY.

Sounds more like management than labor Nov. 12 2006
By Gene DeSantis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though this score is quite tuneful the problem is the presentation can't even be close to the original. At the Labor Stage the ILGWU members and duo-pianists (one of whom for a time was the socialist firebrand Marc Blitzstein) surely imbued it with charm and innocent amateur enthusiasm; here a slick pop combo and chorus turn the thing into an early-sixties bank commercial. It's so slick it's hard to believe "One Big Union for Two" was once banned from the air for the word "scabbing". Ditto with Jack Carroll and Rose Marie Jun, veterans of Broadway demo recordings; they sound as if they stepped in from a jingle session, and stepped out to another. We'll say this for Harold Rome: he's amiable.

Then there's...Babs. It's obvious why she was destined to be a superstar -- and, alas, a pill. She does the Miss Marmelstein shtick and you can't help thinking she got her political education from these songs, but she hasn't yet learned how to sing with bared fangs; she has a youthful simplicity and a yearning understatedness she would soon enough abandon for the theatrics, a shame, because she is so damned good here. Perhaps she could only become worse as she became her ego, but we should never forget the great talent and appeal her discoverers Jack Paar and Mr. Rome saw in her, and we see it here in a mere six songs.

Strangely enough, this album spurred a kind of sequel: "Harold Rome's Gallery", an art-themed studio recording of some original tunes in a swing jacket, with most of the same crew minus Babs; it wasn't around long enough to become even a collector's item.
