Barbra Streisand's album entitled 'Simply Streisand' sees the singer make the transition from nightclub belter to romantic balladeer, performing some of the great love songs. While it doesn't have the fire or exitement of earlier albums, it's still a very worthwhile title.

Barbra spins gold with "All the Things You Are" (one of the most beautiful songs EVER written, originally from the musical "Very Warm for May"); "When Sunny Gets Blue", and "Make the Man Love Me" (from "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn").

Despite the ever-looming shadow of Judy Garland, Streisand's take on "The Boy Next Door" features enough to make it distinguishable. "More Than You Know" (later recycled for the movie Funny Lady) is also charming.

Perhaps the reason why this album failed to make an impression during it's debut was because, on the surface, it seems so one-dimensional. Streisand's earlier albums had been a collection of many moods and styles. Still, 'Simply Streisand' is a fine record of the vintage Miss Barbra in full-flight.
