Barbra Joan Streisand 1971

Barbra Joan Streisand 1971
Stoney End was a tremendous success for Barbra and showed that she was more than capable of continuing her supremacy as one of the top female recording artists in the world no matter how the times changed. With Richard Perry again at the helm, Barbra was back in the recording studio working on another pop album, released just a scant six months later. Again, Barbra found musical treasures in the work of Carole King ("Beautiful" and "Where You Lead") and Laura Nyro ("I Never Meant To Hurt You"). And since the album was about dichotomy -- Barbra Joan on one side and Barbara Joan on the other -- Streisand mixed the harder songs like John Lennon's "Mother" with the drama of Burt Bacharach ("One Less Bell to Answer"/"A House Is Not A Home"). It's an eclectic mix, but it works -- and then some. Undiscovered gem: Michel Legrand and Marilyn and Alan Bergman's magnificent movie song, "The Summer Knows."
