The Barbra Streisand Album is the debut album by Barbra Streisand, released February 25, 1963, on Columbia Records, catalogue CL 2007 in mono and CS 8807 in stereo. It peaked at on the Billboard pop albums chart, and has been certified a gold album by the RIAA. The album won Grammy awards for Album of the Year and Best Female Vocal Performance. In January 2006 the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Barbra Streisand has succeeded in producing a rare "motion picture soundtrack" in The Movie Album, one of the most consistently polished of her sixty albums. Its true beauties lie in its ability to allow us to re-experience the tonal and mood structures of the original movies and revisit them with a fresh, new perspective. It must have been difficult for Barbra, who has always believed in truthfulness in her art, to initially approach the music in this album when played away from the source and from a musical perspective, and harder still to evoke the cinematic emotional responses. Perhaps this is why it took her seventeen years to complete the vision. And in the end, the product is a paradigm of intelligent artistry: The Movie Album belongs to the must-have collection of fans of movies and their music.

The idea of Barbra Streisand making an album of movie songs is a no-brainer; as annotators Jay Landers and Richard Jay-Alexander point out, she has already recorded over 50 songs written for motion pictures on her 59 previous albums. In fact, the only real challenge may be a marketing one for Columbia Records, since potential customers simply may assume this is a compilation of some of her previous performances. It is not. Rather, it is a newly recorded collection of songs chosen and arranged in Streisand's inimitable style

Barbra Streisand: все альбомы, включая Barbra Streisand UpGraded Masters, Walls, Don't Lie to Me и другие. 2014 Original Album Plus Bonus Tracks 1963.

It’s a given that Barbra Streisand loves being a movie star. But this collection of pop songs culled from 60+ years of Hollywood history displays a love and understanding of movie songcraft whose depth is surprising, even coming from the legendary diva.

The DVD contains Barbra performing "Wild Is The Wind" & "I'm In The Mood For Love", with excepts from the films they originate from playing in the background. This DVD came as an addition to Barbra Streisand's 2003 CD The Movie Album. The . 2 video for "Wild Is The Wind" features inter-cut clips from the film, as well as cutaways to the orchestra.

It's a given that Barbra Streisand loves being a movie star. Few are likely even familiar with Andre Previn's evocative main theme for The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse; fewer still would cajole veteran songwriters Alan and Marilyn Bergman to give it lyrics, then make it their wedding song, but that's the unlikely genesis of "More in Love With You" here.

Barbra Streisand has succeeded in producing a rare "motion picture soundtrack" in The Movie Album, one of the most consistently polished of her sixty albums. Its true beauties lie in its ability to allow us to re-experience the tonal and mood structures of the original movies and revisit them with a fresh, new perspective.Those who expect bombastic vocal performances in the theatrical sense of Barbra's Broadway albums may be disappointed, as there are little of them here. Film music, after all, has more to do with sounds and the emotional effects needed for the movies they were written for and little to do with "acting" the dialogue (unless it were a musical). And Barbra's vocals, still peerless in majesty of sound, concatenate effortlessly with the solo instruments and all the other sounds of the 75-piece orchestra to deliver that lush, cinematic direction. The last time we heard such impeccable compatibility of sound values was in The Broadway Album eighteen years ago. (This is why Barbra should stick to having one producer per album. Happily, she does so to herself in The Movie Album.)It must have been difficult for Barbra, who has always believed in truthfulness in her art, to initially approach the music in this album when played away from the source and from a musical perspective, and harder still to evoke the cinematic emotional responses. Perhaps this is why it took her seventeen years to complete the vision. And in the end, the product is a paradigm of intelligent artistry: The Movie Album belongs to the must-have collection of fans of movies and their music.
