Even in the face of epochal success, it's tempting to ponder what Barbra Streisand might have accomplished had she not spread herself across so many diverse entertainment media; so much ambition, so little time. This collection of 19 Streisand duets chronicles collaborations with Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland at one end of the scale and Don Johnson at the other. It finds the singer dabbling--if, as her bluesy miscue with Ray Charles on "Crying Time" argues, not necessarily triumphing--in styles she largely eschewed elsewhere in her career. Still, her unlikely collaborations with Barry Gibb ("Guilty," "What Kind of Fool") and Donna Summer ("No More Tears (Enough Is Enough") during the disco era scored her some of the biggest successes of her career, ample proof that with the right chemistry, Streisand could be as powerful a pop music chameleon as she was a diva. New recordings with veteran Barry Manilow (the warm, low-key "I Won't Be the One to Let You Go") and Josh Groban (David Foster's overwrought "All I Know of Love") supplement recordings that stretch from the '60s kitsch-a-go-go of Harold Arlen's "Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead" across five decades of Streisand's unparalleled career. --Jerry McCulley

I would highly recommend this fabulous collection.. In truth..any recording Barbra has released would be highly recommend.. She is simply the worlds greatest artist..
I WON'T BE THE ONE TO LET GO (w/ BARRY MANILOW) NEW SONG
I was shocked to learn of this song. I cannot believe that both of my mother's favorite performers have recorded a duet together. This is a beautiful song and it talks about how two lovers will never leave each other.
GUILTY (w/ BARRY GIBB) (from the album GUILTY)
I never liked this one. There's just something about it.
YOU DON'T BRING ME FLOWERS (w/ NEIL DIAMOND) (from the album BARBRA STREISAND'S GREATEST HITS VOL. 2)
An okay song.
I FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE (w/ BRYAN ADAMS) (from the original motion picture soundtrack THE MIRROR HAS TWO FACES)
Beautiful song. It's obvious that the song is about how two people found the perfect lovers... each other.
CRYIN' TIME (w/ RAY CHARLES) (from the boxset JUST FOR THE RECORD)
Not a good song. Ray Charles' voice is horrible.
I'VE GOT A CRUSH ON YOU (w/ FRANK SINATRA) (from Frank's album DUETS)
Okay song. Although Frank's voice is not bad, I cannot call myself a fan.
TELL HIM (w/ CELINE DION) (from the album HIGHER GROUND) (from Celine's album LET'S TALK ABOUT LOVE)
Celine's voice in one corner, Barbra's voice in the other corner. These two have made the right choice in recording a song together because their voices are absolutely out of this world, especially when they sing together.Read more ›
Two newly recorded songs - I won't be the one to let go and All I know of love - bookend this collection, no doubt included to ensure that Barbra's most fanatical supporters need this.
Some of the songs here reflect Barbra's acting career, including I finally found someone (from The mirror has two faces), Lost inside of you (from A star is born), two tracks from Back to Broadway (I have a love / One hand one heart and The music of the night) and Ding dong the witch is dead (a cover of song from The Wizard of Oz).
Everything here is brilliant, but my particular favorites are Make no mistake he's mine (a song that topped the country chart when recorded by Kenny Rogers and Ronnie Milsap as Make no mistake she's mine), If you ever leave me and You don't bring me flowers.
If you enjoy any of Barbra's music, you will love this collection.
Historically I have listened to very little of Barbra's music; my mistake. Barbra has an exceptionally powerful and melodic voice. I've considered Celine Dion to have one of the most powerful voices in music today. When I listened to the "Tell Him" duet with Celine Dion, I realized that Barbra's voice is even more powerful than Celine Dion's. Celine's notes are more pure, but Barbra has harmonics and strength in her voice that could overwhelm Celine's. However, the song uses the best of each vocalist to create an incomparable vocal experience. This song will send chills down your spine.
Given that I only have 1000 words to describe 19 songs, I am unable to fully describe the experience of each and every one, which I would love to do. Instead, I'll point to some highlights.
"Guilty" and "What Kind of Fool" with Barry Gibb are absolutely inspired duets. Barry's falsetto is a brilliant counterpoint to Barbra's voice. Eliminate the instruments, they aren't needed. I could listen to an entire CD of music like this, which were big hits for both artists.
Who can forget "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" with Neil Diamond? These two singers sound so much like actual lovers that you want to cry. Enough said.
"I've Got a Crush on You" with Frank Sinatra is a tribute by Frank and Barbra to each other and the place each holds as musical greats.Read more ›
