Hi-Res
16 concerts, 14 cities… In 2016 and 2017, the great Barbra Streisand (75 years old) worked tirelessly to offer her legendary voice to her many fans. Without being a testamentary work, this series of concerts still constitutes a nostalgic inventory of the rich career of the performer of Woman in love (a title that is strangely and unfortunately absent from this collection). Incidentally, the album cover shows its hand by putting seven vignettes side by side picturing Streisand in concert throughout her life. Thanks to a lush crossover cast, these concerts showcase the artist above all else, who is captivating in the musicals A Star is Born (with the smooth Evergreen) and Funny Girl (with the spruce and jazzy Don’t Rain on My Parade). Always in this cinematographic niche, the colour suddenly changes while she performs a stripped-down and deep version of Papa, Can You Hear Me, taken from her unique movie as a director (Yentl). Admittedly her presence and charisma are still there, but in this type of song, the “magic” that the title of the album tries to sell us is harder to believe in, as the crystal from her voice is now tarnished. In the end, it’s in the most energetic and optimistic songs that she comes out best, such as How Lucky Can You Get, drawn from Funny Lady, or the mischievous Jingle Bells. Because if her vocal cords are sometimes tired, Streisand’s invigorating personality remains intact, and it’s what we’ll remember the most from these musical memories, testimonies of an era which will keep its “magic” forever. It’s worth noting that there’s a delightful duo with Jamie Fox on the very lyric Climb Ev’ry Moutain, a little-known song from The Sound of Music. This Deluxe version contains 8 additional tracks to the standard version—including the audio version of the complete recording of the Miami concert, which was broadcasted on Netflix in November 2017. © NM/Qobuz

At a time when Barbra Streisand's career was in decline, what turned out to be only her first greatest-hits album seemed to serve as both a summing up and a kiss-off of her 1960s recordings. Streisand was not primarily a singles artist; between 1964 and 1969, she enjoyed nine chart singles, of which only one, "People," made the Top Ten, with only one other, "Second Hand Rose," reaching the Top 40. But in that time, she scored seven gold-selling, Top Ten albums. This hits collection contained seven of her chart singles, plus her non-charting early single "My Coloring Book," "Happy Days Are Here Again," which was one of the highlights of her debut album (heard here in the live version from A Happening in Central Park), and "Don't Rain on My Parade" from the Funny Girl soundtrack. For casual fans, that made for a good sampling of Streisand's most prominent '60s work, and if at the time it seemed likely that this was all the hits there would be, instead the '60s proved to be only the first chapter in Streisand's career. ~ William Ruhlmann

There have been several classic Christmas albums by Frank Sinatra, but this 2014 release from Columbia/Legacy primarily sources the first, the 1948 10" LP Christmas Songs by Sinatra. All eight of the LP's tracks are on this 14-track collection, with the rest either recorded sometime between 1946 and 1949 and not seeing release until much later, or it’s the 1950 ringer of "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" This means it doesn't exactly replicate the 1994 edition of Christmas Songs by Sinatra, which had a four-song radio broadcast tacked on as bonus, but it also means it holds together slightly better, consisting of studio performances that still sound classic all these years later. It's a nice way to get seasonal music that never goes out of style. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
