Barbra at her best
30 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the most memorable 1970's TV performances by the legendary Streisand. Despite having just received the Acadamy Award for her first movie (Funny Girl) and selling a lot of records, the world was still discovering her amazing talent and television viewers were once again awestruck. She decided to lend her pal Burt Bacharach a little help on his TV special and of course completely stole the show. She appears very relaxed, sexy, and contemporary and jokes with Burt about her already infamous 'fears' of performing and then segues into a gorgeous "duet with herself" on Bacharach's "One Less Bell to Answer/ House is not a Home" from her Barbra Joan Streisand album. Streisand is in top form here as she makes this Bacharach classic her own. She then does a quieter more subdued duet with Bacharach on his "Close to You"; again goosebumps. The special closes with Barbra doing a lesser known song of Burt's called "Be Aware" especially written for her. Again....LIKE BUTTAH! We can only hope that one day Barbra or Burt will release this gem on DVD.
