Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Chas Turner
Barbra Streisand is an undeniable pop icon, a walking summation of song. For her fans, she is the total, pure, triple-distilled essence of the human voice. The aptly named Timeless DVD attests to the staggering range and experience of this woman named Barbra, as she appeared in her now-mythic millennial two-night farewell stand at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. All the big names Celine Dion and Neil Diamond were there; and even some departed legends Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra manage to take bows with the diva, via tape and film clips. Rarely have "Alfie," "Evergreen," "People," Kurt Weill's "Speak Low," and numerous Sondheim numbers sounded better than in Streisand's versions here. Although the Streisand voice is as rock-solid as ever on Timeless, what's ultimately most fascinating here is that the singer manages to see the whole of the last century in a purely biographical sense. Contributing to this is the presence of a 15-year-old look- and sound-alike Lauren Frost, who joins Streisand on no less than seven songs, the between-song dialogue with Streisand pére, and the continual checking in with "Brother Time," here played by dancer Savion Glover. Timeless is also funny check the Shirley MacLaine "Y1K" bit and very touching -- can it be that this is really, really farewell? Well, thanks to Timeless, we'll have a chance to do it all again.

    PERFECTION

    What can one say after witnessing such absolute perfection. Barbra gave my wife and I an emotional experience such as we never had with any other star after viewing her TIMELESS performance. We wish her and her husband many years of good health and happiness. She may be retired but we know that whatever she does in the future will help make a difference in this world we live in.

    The Best Concert Ever

    Timeless was held on December 31, 199 to January 1, 2000. The Lucky auidence got to celebrate New Years Day with her. The Concert is full of humor, drama, and lots of fun. This DVD or VHS is worth the money and will satisfy you no matter how many times you watch it. It also includes Lauren Frost (not her daughter), Shirley MacLaine,and Savion Glover.As you spend this special time with her at home it will bring tears to your eyes and will change you entire life.This VHS or DVD shows the entire concert and is 100% Barbra Streisand. Enjoy this Timeless journey. Timeless- Barbra Streisand

    The Title Says It All -- Timeless

    I saw the New York concert. Ms. Streisand's voice -- a true gift -- was never better. Her stage presence, the arrangements, and the selections she performed were superior. This far exceeds anything that Barbra Streisand has ever done before. As this is promised to be her last concert, it is historic and a reminder to the world what a truly gifted talent she is. Sheer perfection!
