Barbra Streisand said, One reason I made The Broadway Album is that I felt I had to stop recording songs that any number of other people could sing as well if not better than I could. It was time for me to do something I truly believed in. This is the music I love, it is where I came from, it is my roots. She told Stephen Holden, Making Yentl wiped me out and left me with no drive for two years. But once I commit to a project, whether it's a record or a movie, I become so involved with every aspect that I become obsessed.

This is the album that Barbra Streisand was born to create, and it is possibly the finest recording of her forty year career. Barbra wisely asked Peter Matz (who had inventively arranged many of her early recordings) to arrange much of the album and serve with her as executive producer. Matz's contributions clearly brings back the electricity and imagination that had been missing from many of Streisand's post-sixties recordings. Streisand's superlative effort was rewarded when THE BROADWAY ALBUM shot straight to on Billboard's Hot 200 and was certified Quadruple-Platinum in sales. 13 people found this helpful.
Barbra Streisand's abandonment of Broadway was the worst thing that happened to the theater in the '60s. Her retreat from theater music on record was less of a loss, if only because she had tended to focus on second-rank composers and obscure songs by first-rate ones, while practically ignoring, for example, Stephen Sondheim.
As its title indicates, this 1985 recording marked Barbra Streisand’s return to her Broadway roots (significantly, she had dropped her pop-period Guilty perm and returned to straight hair). The CD contains a broad selection of show tunes, from Guys and Dolls’s Adelaide’s Lament to Sweeney Todd’s Not While I’m Around.
