Songbird 1978

Songbird 1978
With Superman, Barbra began a collaboration with producer Gary Klein, and like Richard Perry before him, Klein continued the move toward getting Barbra more in touch with contemporary music. The Streisand/Klein team would last four albums -- four good, diverse and enjoyable albums. Songbird, for instance, has a little of everything for Barbra buffs. There's a great variation on the Annie song "Tomorrow," which was a bow to Barbra's Broadway roots; and soulful love songs get their place with "Deep in the Night" and "Stay Away." Barbra's solo version of "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" is another gorgeous addition to this album, but for my money, it's "Songbird" that's the finest cut of all. Undiscovered gem: the oh-so-seductive "Honey, Can I Put On Your Clothes"
