Description

Color Me Barbra is the seventh studio album by singer Barbra Streisand released on Columbia Records in 1966. It reached number 3 in the US albums chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It was also the title of Streisand’s second CBS TV special on March 30, 1966[2] and the first in color when it was still a novelty for TV, hence the title.

All of the songs on Color Me Barbra were featured on Barbra Streisand’s second TV special of the same name. (There were some more songs as well, but they had appeared on earlier albums.) It was a strong collection on which Streisand successfully tackled such standards as Jerome Kern and Otto Harbach‘s “Yesterdays” and Rodgers & Hart‘s “Where or When,” as well as introducing some good new show material in “Where Am I Going?” from Sweet Charity and Richard Maltby, Jr and David Shire‘s “Starting Here, Starting Now,” as well as displaying her comedic skills on “The Minute Waltz.” The long medley of “face” songs (“Funny Face,” “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” etc.) made more sense on TV, where Streisand sang it to a studio zoo full of animals, but was still enjoyable. The material wasn’t all great, with a retread of “Gotta Move” by Streisand’s arranger/conductor Peter Matz and a couple of French songs looking forward to Je M’Appelle Barbra among the filler.
