HASH(0xb2f414f8) out of 5 stars Barbra on 5 songs: worth the price! May 19 2005
By jon sieruga - Published on
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.

HASH(0xb2f4154c) out of 5 stars Early Barbra!! She Sounds Great Aug. 12 1999
By Matt Howe - Published on
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.

HASH(0xb2f41984) out of 5 stars A "little left-wing revue" still smiles generations later Aug. 16 2014
By Allen Smalling - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
PINS AND NEEDLES was a satirical, union-themed revue that wound up running for several years in 1930s New York, even at one point playing a "command performance" for Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. This studio album was recorded in 1962 at the behest of Columbia Records but except for the occasional anachronistic electric guitar, plays much as the little two-piano show would have played in Depression-era theater. Songs are charming, some overtly political ("Doing the Reactionary"; "Four Little Angels of Peace" about Chamberlain, Tojo, Mussolini and Hitler); some merely class-conscious: the opening number sets the tone with "Sing Me a Song With Social Significance" that explicitly rejects the moon-spoon-June type of romantic lyrics. Other lyrics reject the ultra-suave theater tunes written for and about café society, one singer explicitly mentioning that he doesn't have a summer house or a yacht or a high (top) hat, and that the coat-check girls at El Morocco would ignore him. The tunes themselves, though, are largely pastiche of the Gershwin/Cole Porter style, adding to the satire. This album is also well-known as including in its cast an up-and-coming talent named Barbra Streisand. This is an interesting album politically, engaging artistically, and a must for Streisand completists -- all at a very good price.
HASH(0xb2f4196c) out of 5 stars Is it "better with a union man"? Dec 31 2014
By gewidmet - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Recently (end of 2014), I listened to this CD (actually, to the original Lp, though I own the CD) with my grandson. Of course, I give this five stars, because I was the musical producer of the sessions that produced the Lp, and listening (actually, for the first time) brought back sharp memories of that time in 1962. All the reviews here refer mostly to Streisand, who was 20 years old at the time of the recording sessions. She was appearing in the just-opened Broadway show "I Can Get It for You Wholesale" as Miss Marmelstein (a cousin to the singer of "Nobody Makes a Pass at Me").
The reason for making this re-creation was simple: Goddard Lieberson (President of Columbia Records, who restricted his recording activities to Broadway works, sung and spoken) wanted ICGIFYW to come to Columbia, and he thought that Harold Rome would help to do that if a presentation of (some of the) songs from Rome's earlier ILGWU show were to be recorded. I was given that assignment. The Art Director was so surprised at seeing that a young woman was to be the producer that he said that my picture should appear on the album. I'm pleased that some listeners still enjoy the piece.

HASH(0xb2f41e28) out of 5 stars an under-appreciated classic of musical theater Jan. 17 2012
By nick - Published on
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.
