What can I say about Barbra Streisand that has not been said thousands of times? She is a gift to the world--he voice is amazing, her performances are legendary and magical. Now we can all have a little Streisand at home with the three disc DVD set "The Concerts". The set includes some of her most memorable concerts as well as 17 songs never released on DVD before. The extras include behind the scenes with Barbra. Disc one contains Streisand's 2006 tour with guests Il Divo and it contains three of the never recorded on DVD songs--A Cockeyed Optimist", "Unusual Way" and "My Shining Hour". Disc two is Streisand's concert at Arrowhead Pond from 1994 and disc three is the first time DVD recording of "Putting it Together: The Making of the Broadway Album". There are also clips from "My Name is Barbra" (1965), "Color Me Barbra" (1966) and others. The set is a major marker in the career of Streisand and for those of us who have not had the chance to see Streisand live; this is the next best thing. It is pure and wonderful entertainment.
