Overview

With a storied 46-year career under her wing, America's premier popular singer took to the stage in 2006 for a memorable sold-out concert tour. If you weren't lucky enough to score a ticket, don't fret, for this sumptuous two-disc set brings the Streisand experience to a CD player near you. Still in excellent voice, Streisand delivers a set of greatest hits in the form of a one-woman Broadway show -- complete with overture, entr'acte, and spoken dialogue -- including such classic songs as "The Way We Were," "Funny Girl," and "People," while the popular vocal quartet Il Divo provide a dose of latter-day celebrity, joining in on three special numbers ("Evergreen," "The Music of the Night," and "Somewhere"). Streisand's rapport with the audience is plain, an ease expressed through frequent spoken banter and extended dialogues -- all preserved on the album -- that range from the self-mocking to the poignant and, yes, the political. Counting 23 songs in all, 14 available for the first time in live versions, it's a Streisand event no fan can resist, and this Barnes & Noble edition ups the ante with an exclusive bonus track of "When the Sun Comes Out."

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times - Daryl H. Miller
Streisand sounds terrific on this keepsake.... Her singing, throughout, is almost tactile, suggesting the luxurious smoothness of satin or the sweet kiss of a breeze on a summer day.
