All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
On her first album, Barbra Streisand established herself as a singer who discovered or created new standards instead of one who revived or re-created old ones. She wavered from this commitment on her second album, and on her third gave in to convention completely. There was nothing wrong with her interpretations of such old favorites as "My Melancholy Baby," "Taking a Chance on Love," "As Time Goes By," or "It Had to Be You," except perhaps that they seemed a little tame for a performer of such demonstrated individuality. She was assured by going back to Harold Arlen's St. Louis Woman for "I Had Myself a True Love," using its bluesy tone for some emotional fireworks. ...

The Third Album is another demonstration of the beauty of Barbra Streisand's voice.

    Barbra Streisand: Third Album

    This classic was available long ago on the old 33 1/2 RPMs. I gave it 5 stars as Barbra's powerful voice overwhelmed me with her extraordinary talent. It is a mixture of both her soft flute-like voice songs in addition to her thunder-like "sock it to me" classics. In my opinion, no one matches her in this regard. I would recommend her older albums over the newer ones as very politely, it was those years in her prime that she made the music industry stand up and take notice (in a very major way). I have suggested some other entertainers below (both older and contemporary) who are known for their powerful effect on their audiences.
