    previewed some

    What can one say about Barbra (Streisand) Brolin that has not allready been said. Why she waited so long to record an album with only their lyrics is evident as she wanted the very best of them on here. She is so wonderfully gifted in her annuciating, breathing & phrasing it seems somewhat diabolical that all this talent is still welled up inside a sixty-nine year old woman usually at the end of their careers. God blessed her so richly with this gift that is still so wonderfully received by her public. How complete, is the paradox she shows you as you hear a promise in one song and a wonder in another. I say Mrs. Brolin is still many years away from commencement, wouldn't you?

    so,so,beautiful

    This is the most beautiful c d I have ever owned and I own a lot of them. StreisaND, WAS JUST SO great, but I want to say what gorgeous music Alan and Marilyn Bergman wrote. How nice to know who wrote all this romantic music, I can't stop playing it. Check out "After the rain" and the "Island", can't tell you or say enough about how so lovely these two are. I'm so glad Barbara did this, I wish more artist would give dues to the authors of songs.
