Evergreens, which
celebrates Streisand’s 60th anniversary as a Columbia artist,
features 22 songs, selected by the EGOT winner as favorites from her career. Target is offering an exclusive version on pink vinyl.

Yentl commemorates the 40th anniversary of the release of the Oscar-winning soundtrack to the film, which Streisand starred in, directed, wrote, and produced. The recording is offered on vinyl as a Barnes & Noble exclusive on two discs. Disc one features the original Yentl
soundtrack, and disc two features 15 tracks that Streisand recorded as demos
or alternate versions. Ten demos were recorded in her living room on
a stereo cassette deck, with Streisand narrating the introduction to each
track; she is accompanied  by Michel Legrand on piano.

A previously unreleased track from the Yentl soundtrack, “Papa, Can You Hear Me?,” was released earlier this month. This recording, long stored in Streisand’s music vault, is an alternate version of the Oscar-nominated song, produced by Phil Ramone and arranged by Dave Grusin.

Both albums were supervised and feature liner notes by Jay

Streisand has recorded 52 gold, 31 platinum, and 13 multi-platinum
albums, achieving No. 1 albums in each of the six consecutive decades.
She is the only artist ever to receive Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy,
Directors Guild of America, Golden Globe, National Medal of Arts, and
Peabody awards, as well as France's Legion d’Honneur, the American Film
Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and is the first female film
director to receive the Kennedy Center Honors. In 2015, President Barack
Obama presented her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
