First Streisand nightclub recording remastered for release

NEW YORK — A series of Barbra Streisand’s 1962 performances in a Manhattan nightclub before she became a superstar has been remastered and will be released this fall.

“Barbra Streisand — Live at the Bon Soir” features songs from a three-night stint at the Bon Soir nightclub in Greenwich Village. The singer and actress was and her sessions led to her first record deal. Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings announced Friday that the remastered sessions will be released on November 4.

The performances were intended to become Streisand’s first album, but instead many of the songs were redone as studio recordings and released as her Grammy-winning self-titled debut album in 1963.

Streisand kept the recordings in her personal collection and approved the release after engineer Jochem van der Saag used technology to improve their quality, according to a press release. The nightclub acoustics were not intended for professional recording, but modern techniques allowed van der Saag to separate Streisand’s voice from the sounds of the instruments.

The release will allow listeners to “witness 20-year-old Streisand at the dawn of her peerless career,” Friday’s announcement said.

“I had never been to a nightclub until I sang in one,” Streisand said in a statement, noting that the release comes 60 years after the Bon Soir sessions.
