Birth Of A Legend - The 1962 Studio Recordings


These recordings present Barbra Streisand immediately before she famously exploded onto the US 8200;market in 1963, with her first two million-selling Columbia albums.

This unique compilation comprises her 1962 studio recordings in their entirety, viz: her first two singles for Columbia; the ten tracks she sings on from a pair of Soundtrack albums, I Can Get It For You Wholesale and Pins And Needles, also for Columbia; and a 10" demo LP which she recorded for RCA Victor, who (bizarrely) passed on her.

For decades, the RCA demo album represented the "Holy Grail" for Streisand collectors, as it has never previously been given a commercial release; it is included herein in its entirety, plus outtakes.

The first comprehensive collection of her pre-superstardom studio recordings, this is the companion to another forthcoming Streisand/Jasmine release, "Birth of a Legend - 1961/62 Live Recordings" (JASCD1116).
