About the Album

Lady Liberty: Songwriter Desmond Child (Bon Jovi's “Livin' On A Prayer” and Cher's “Just Like Jesse James”) wrote specifically with Streisand in mind. “It's been one of my life's ambitions to have a song of mine recorded by Barbra Streisand,” he confessed. “I was asked to write a song for this record by Jay Landers who is her musical supervisor. I spent a day with him listening to all of her songs. And then I procrastinated for about three weeks, and then he texted me and said you have two days to turn the song in. I wrote it in an hour. We turned it around so fast, and she loved it. The most impressive thing about her is her energy and her intellect, along with her passion, which sets her above everybody because she has everything going for her on all cylinders.”

Child and Streisand rehearsed the song for one day before recording it. "Yes," he said, "and she wore me out. When she got to the studio a couple of days later, she was so prepared. She was living the song. She just did a couple of takes and she was done.

The audit surveys shipments to the entire music marketplace, including retail, record clubs, television sales, Internet orders and other ancillary markets.
