10. "The Way We Were" (studio album, 1974)

Although "The Way We Were" contains only four recordings made specifically for the album (the "The Way We Were," "All In Love Is Fair," "Being At War With Each Other" and "Something So Right"), they are combined with previously unreleased stray tracks from other projects which suit the mood. Consequently, the album comes together as a fairly consistent assemblage of songs with Streisand luxuriating at the peak of her 1970s pop princess power.
