This chapter focuses on Barbra Streisand’s music recordings, beginning with The Barbra Streisand Album and The Second Barbra Streisand Album, both in 1963, followed by The Third Album a year later. Streisand’s first recital disc showcased her versatility, theatrics, bravado, humor, and unpredictability, which were evident in her renditions of “Cry Me a River,” “My Honey’s Loving Arms,” “I’ll Tell the Man In the Street,” and “A Taste of Honey.” The chapter also offer a commentary on Streisand’s next two albums as well as other recitals such as People (1964), What About Today? (1969), Stoney End (1971), ButterFly (1974), Lazy Afternoon (1975), Classical Barbra (1976), Guilty (1980), The Broadway Album (1985), Higher Ground (1997), A Love Like Ours (1999), Christmas Memories (2001), Partners (2014), and Encore (2016).
