There is a reason that Barbra Streisand is the best selling female recoding artist ever. That reason is shown in this concert. It is her first in two decades and the songs that she chose are among the best that she has ever recorded. We all know that she will never get away with never making another stage appearance again. Look at the Emmy Awards. She said that the Timeless concert was her last. Then she appeared without telling anyone (although someone at cnn did find out. It was running on those scrolls at the bottom of the screen the day of the Emmys). There is just too much public demand for her voice. She is quite possibly the greatest singer of her generation. Along with Frank Sinatra, that is.
