Count me in as someone who really likes Barbra Streisand and her voice. And this concert is a treasure, for Streisand fans it is a must. Barbra herself is in great voice as you would expect, what is appealing about her is not just her beautiful voice and liquid-like phrasing and breath control but also the remarkable ability to really connect with the song and lyrics and be genuinely poignant at all. You hear all those things here in Barbra: The Concert. It's not just her singing here either, in the talking moments you do have to admire how intimate, honest and personal she is with doses of humour, she has been controversial with her comments but you don't hear any of that here. The songs she sings are sheer beauties, often classic status, and much of them suit Barbra's talents to a tee and speak for themselves. Especially good are Somewhere, Evergreen(one of those cases where the song is better than the film it's from, didn't like the film but love the song), Can't Help Loving Dat Man and As If We Never Said Goodbye, the songs that show off Barbra's voice the best. Barbra: The Concert is shot very nicely and professionally and the sound accommodates the atmosphere of each song. The songs are cleverly arranged and Barbra is accompanied beautifully and sensitively. Barbra: The Concert is not the most spontaneous of concerts but the warm and intimate atmosphere makes that not matter at all. Overall, a must for fans of Barbra Streisand and in all areas it's wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
