    At one time there was discussion that these (COLOR ME BARBRA and COLOR ME BARBRA) Streisand performances from the 60's might be released on DVD, i was wondering if anyone has heard any recent info.
    thanks.

    I seem to think that the recent DVD of her final New Year's Eve show had some songs from those specials as bonus features, but that's about it.

    I found a DVD of "My Name Is Barbra" in a small cd store in San Francisco recently. Its an import from Brazil and it is NTSC and All Region. It looks very good and has an intro by Barbra. I also found her 1968 "Concert in Central Park" too.

    According to http://www.bjsmusic.com , the specials are likely to be released in late 2004. Of course, as we all know, that could change. [​IMG]

    Thought I'd bump this back onto the radar in case any Barbra fans hadn't heard the news:

    DVDs of her first 5 specials, My Name is Barbra, Color Me Barbra, The Belle of 14th Street, A Happening in Central Park and Barbra Streisand and Other Musical Instruments will hit the streets on 11/15/05 from Rhino. This according to Variety. The 5 will be part of a set, and also available separately.

    Finally! And to get the 2 that never even had a VHS release is great.

    Has anyone heard anymore about this release? No one has it listed for pre-order and November 15th is coming fast. I'd sure like to be able to put this under my Christmas tree.
    Thanks!

    It's now up on Amazon with the release date of 11/22/05. List is $59.98, and they have it for pre-order at $42.00, I believe (don't remember exactly).

    Also, according to a little flyer in the 25th Anniversary Edition of "Guilty" there is a website for them:

    www.barbratvshows.com

    but the last time I checked, there wasn't anything on it yet. But that was a couple of weeks ago.

    So cool! Thanks for the info. I can't wait to actually watch Belle of 14th street and Musical Instruments, having only read about them.

    Those menus look great -- and I notice the set comes with a 65 page booklet -- another plus. It says the three previously available specials include an introduction from Ms. S. Too bad they didn't create introductions for Belle and Instruments. I'd like to hear from herself, as to why these have been so neglected (though I've never seen these two specials, maybe the reason for the neglect will become clear upon viewing!)

    Thanks for the update!

    I don't think they were neglected for what they are. Babs herself isn't very nostalgic about her own career--she likes to forge ahead. Notice she's never really participated much in rereleases of her old movies (dvd commentary, etc.) Maybe age and experience has softened her attitude about her old stuff. At any rate, these 60s specials are the sacred cows of Babs fandom, and deserve a grand dvd release with all the bells and whistles. Good deal, Rhino!

    I don't care what people think about her politically.... there is absolutely no denying when the woman sings, there is magic, especially in the Yentl/Broadway Album era, she was fantastic.
