While some of the songs were later recorded in the studio and were added as a part of her debut album in 1963.

Streisand kept the original recordings and 60 years later she has taken advantage of modern technology to remaster the songs and will be releasing them as her new album “Live at the Bon Soir” on November 4.  The album will be available as a CD and as a digital download.

Guitarist Tiger Haynes, bass player Averill Pollard, drummer John Crsci, and pianist Peter Daniels also appear on the album.
