About the Album

Highlights From Just for the Record... is really for Streisand completists who want to have every one of her CDs in their collection. Otherwise, this 1992 CD was a repackaging of the 1991 4-CD box set.

Highlights contained one CD with 24 tracks. It replicated the CD insert from the original box set and used abbreviated versions of Streisand's original liner notes.

Highlights, most likely, helped fulfill Streisand's contractual commitment to Columbia Records. Indeed, Streisand's last complete studio album was in 1988— Till I Loved You. In the four years following that album, Streisand released two compilations (A Collection and JFTR), a movie soundtrack (Prince of Tides), and Highlights From Just for the Record.

Barbra's next studio album was released June 1993: Back to Broadway.

All of the tracks on Highlights From Just for the Record... were previously released. There is nothing rare or desirable on this CD ... unless, of course, you are a Streisand completist and would like it in your collection.

End.
