For the Streisand completist, purchasing every album she's recorded is money well spent. If you want to cover just the more well-known material in her career, you can buy GREATEST HITS or the JUST FOR THE RECORD box set. But GREATEST HITS VOL 2 is in itself an excellent representation of her 70's material. Included is "Evergreen (Love Theme From A Star Is Born)," possibly Barbra's most endearing ballad. The song is worth the price of the CD alone. But every song on this disc is choice Streisand. The monumental "The Way We Were" is essential, while "Sweet Inspiration"/Where You Lead" is a good sampling of Barbra's live performance.
Taking a break from ballads, "Stoney End" is a classic rock-oriented track. The standout on the record is definitely "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," a duet with Neil Diamond. After their respective solo versions were released, inventive radio DJ Gary Guthrie spliced both vocals together to create the smash hit version on this album. It's amazing how one artist can represent a period of time, and that's the case with this record as many of the landmark tunes here conjure "memories of the way we were".
