I checked who it was because I thought it was Laura Nyro.
I liked the song...how can this be?
I thought Barbra Streisand was uniformly terrible.
So confused right now.
The "budget olides station" here play the Babs version of Stoney End pretty regularly, and I'm always up for it. Helluva jam. Song/voice synergy.
I'm not going to claim to be any major Streisand apologist, but there's a couple of numbers that I like.
Linda Ronstadt & The Stone Poneys did a nice version, too (or maybe I just like it because that was the first one I heard).
