Barbra Streisand's first album, The Barbra Streisand Album, won two Grammy Awards in 1963. Her recording success continued and Barbra Streisand's first three albums appeared simultaneously on Billboard's pop albums Top Ten - an amazing feat considering it was at a time when rock and roll and The Beatles dominated the charts. Jule Styne's and Bob Merrill's Funny Girl (1964), based upon the life of Fanny Brice, was fashioned especially for Barbra Streisand after Styne saw her breakthrough performance in the Broadway production of "I Can Get It for You Wholesale".
Barbra Streisand has recorded more than 60 albums. Her early works in the 1960s (The Barbra Streisand Album, The Second Barbra Streisand Album, The Third Album, My Name Is Barbra, etc.) are considered classic renditions of theatre and nightclub standards, including her famously ironic version of "Happy Days Are Here Again". Beginning with My Name Is Barbra, her albums were often medley-filled keepsakes of her television specials.
During the 1970s, Barbra Streisand was also highly prominent in the pop charts, with number-one records like "The Way We Were", "Evergreen", "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" and "Woman In Love". Some of these singles came from soundtrack records to her films. When the 1970s ended, Barbra Streisand was named the most successful female singer in the U.S., with only Elvis Presley and The Beatles having sold more albums.
In 1991 a four-disc box set, entitled Just for the Record was released, spanning Barbra Streisand's entire career. It featured over 70 tracks, including live material, greatest hits and rarities from her early recordings up to 1991. On New Year's Eve 1999, she returned to the concert stage, scoring another personal triumph for giving the highest grossing single concert in Las Vegas history to date. At the end of the last millennium, Barbra Streisand was still the number-one female singer in the United States, with at least two #1 albums in each decade since she had started out.
Barbra Streisand's most recent album is 2011's two-disc set What Matters Most, which is collection of songs by close friends Alan and Marilyn Bergman. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
