This was a great review by Paul Katz. This album is stunning and clearly a must-have for Barbra fans, but really, any fan of contemporary American music. The span of this music (nearly 50 years) is staggering and represents not only Barbra's own personal musical journey, but that of American music, in general. I can't wait for volumes 2 & 3. Oh, to have a week (a month!) alone in that vault - truly a 'kid-in-a-candy-store' dream. Congrats to Barbra on another fabulous album, and a simply fantastic year. 70 never looked better.
It sounds like an absolutely wonderful night, and a fitting tribute to Marvin Hamlisch. I saw some of the photos from the event, and I was so happy to see a picture of Barbra and Liza together - so much amazing talent (and showbiz history) packed into one incredible photograph. Now, if only they'd record a duet!!! Looking forward to seeing Barbra in Brooklyn on October 13th! Counting the days...
Fantastic News!! I can't wait to see the whole performance. The clips that we've seen were glorious indeed. Hope there's a little backstage stuff & an interview w/Barbra included too.
