Happy 72nd Birthday to Barbra Streisand!!!

The great Barbra Streisand turns 72 today and, well, she’s still like buttah.

She still looks amazing, sounds terrific and continues to add to an already legendary career.

To mark her birthday, I’ve put together some interviews she’s done as well as the 1986 concert she gave at her home in Malibu to raise money for political candidates.

I remember excitedly renting a VHS copy of this as soon as it became available. Pretty cool that now we can watch it on YouTube.

    UM Barbra is 72 today not 71. But Happy Belated Birthday 2 YOU!

  3. Greg: As much as Barbra would love to shave a years off her age she is not 71 years old today but she is 72. She was born in 1942!

    Thanks to paying tribute to this multifaceted and talented woman. I have been under her spell for decades.

    Problem is that I think she has lost a lot of her drive and ambition over the last few years… She should be doing fabulous character rolls in films, directing and recording really good stuff. He last few albums have been sleepy syrup stuff for the most part. I liked her “Back To Brooklyn” DVD and CD but “The Guilt Trip” was so far beneath her mega talent, frankly it was like a bad cable TV situation comedy. I don’t really fault Barbra cause she was good in her role. The script, direction and editing ruined the film. How frightening if that would be her last leading role!

    Looks like she is currently working on a very high profile duets album with relevant contemporary artists and hot producers and top arrangers.

    Let’ hope she can get back on track with a real hit CD with a true 2014 sound. No more heavy strings or snails pace shmaltz please…

    Don’t worry we still love ya Barbra. You’re the Top! Happy Birthday!

  4. Thanks, I corrected it!

  5. Such a lovely gift to the world!

  6. I was born on Babs’ 14th birthday!
