In the latter half of the 1970s, Barbra Streisand was better known for her film work, while the Bee Gees were red hot thanks to their songs on the multi-million selling soundtrack of 'Saturday Night Fever.' This album changed the perception of Streisand from a song-and-dance artist who made the odd film to a bona fide popular singer. The singles kicked off with the strident 'Woman in Love' a number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic, and a radio staple to this day, and if the hits thereafter got smaller, she maintained a reputation as a blockbusting act who to this day can command ticket prices of £150 or more. For the brothers Gibb, meanwhile, there was no way but down for most of the eighties, but they lived to score more hits.
I bought this album as an L.P. when it was oriiginally released,when I was 20 something!which is now lurking in my attic somewhere?It was great to get it on cd, timeless,fantastic songs,just like meeting an old friend again!especially after my dear wife surprised me with a trip to see Streisand live in Las Vegas for my 50th birthday!nothing can top that!
