This record, possibly more than any other Streisand release, shows Streisand's soul. The songs have that extra bit of depth to them, showing that Babs can really dig deep and produce some powerful stuff. It's Barbra's turn at R&B done her way, and she hangs with the best of them. "Love In The Afternoon" is a sweet ballad, with the aforementioned soul ringing throughout. "Guava Jelly" is Barbra trying her hand at some tropical music, with excellent congas, percussion, and steel drums.
She turns in a distinctive performance of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands," while the mid-tempo "Jubilation" continues the funky theme with an added choir. The highlight of the record is "Simple Man," beautifully arranged with acoustic guitar, piano, and cello. Streisand voices her longing, exclaiming "I just wanna hold you/I don't wanna hold you down/I don't wanna make it on my own." The album runs from humorous to deep, while showing a more spiritual side to the Funny Girl.
