Memories [CBS] Barbra Streisand Primary Artist
Shop on Barnes & Noble


As albums go, Barbra Streisand's Memories made a great single. A compilation, but not exactly a hits collection, it contained two newly recorded songs, Memory from the musical Cats and the Top 40 hit Comin' in and Out of Your Life, plus a re-recorded version of Lost Inside of You, a song previously done as a duet with {|Kris Kristofferson|} in {|A Star Is Born|}, and seven tracks from the previous eight years, three of which were making their third or fourth appearance on record. In other words, {|Memories|} was a blatant consumer rip-off, highly unusual for an artist who usually gave value for money. That said, the album contained some of Streisand's biggest hits -- You Don't Bring Me Flowers, No More Tears (Enough Is Enough), Evergreen, and The Way We Were, as well as some excellent performances, such as Streisand's take on {|Billy Joel|}'s New York State of Mind. Thus, it was a good collection thought of independently (which may help explain why it became one of Streisand's biggest sellers), even if in the context of her overall catalog it was an album of reruns baited with a couple of new songs. [CBS also released the album.]
