Product Details
Performer Notes
  • This is a collection of songs and excerpts from motion pictures and musical comedies.
  • MY NAME IS BARBRA was the first Barbra Streisand television special. It was broadcast on April 28, 1965.
  • This magnificent album is the first of two that tied into the TV special of the same name. It went to #2 on the charts and earned Ms. Streisand a Grammy award for Best Female Vocalist. It's a wonderful compendium of show tunes, standards and originals that all come together to form a surprisingly personal memoir. From the album cover shot of a five-year-old Barbra (taken by brother Sheldon) to the short-but-sweet leadoff title track, this record exposes Barbra's feelings on relationships as well as revealing her recollections of youth.
  • "I'm Five" and "Sweet Zoo" are both fast and funny tunes, with the latter proclaiming all the animals Barbra wants to be (done in her trademark Brooklyn accent). "Jenny Rebecca" is a touching ballad with effective harp contributions. "Where Is The Wonder" is another excellent ballad with eloquent phrasing. "Someone To Watch Over Me" contains a fabulous arrangement, and "My Man" concludes the record in a big way, with Streisand hitting a long, perfect note at the climax. The Grammy is well-deserved, as her performance is a talented expression of her feelings, yearnings, and remembrances.
