As albums go, Barbra Streisand’s Memories made a great single. A compilation, but not exactly a hits collection, it contained two newly recorded songs, “Memory” from the musical Cats and the Top 40 hit “Comin’ in and Out of Your Life,” plus a re-recorded version of “Lost Inside of You,” a song previously done as a duet with Kris Kristofferson in A Star Is Born, and seven tracks from the previous eight years, three of which were making their third or fourth appearance on record.

In the early 1980s, CBS Records in the U.S. and Japan created a limited edition series of high quality audiophile pressings of then-new and older LPs that were pressed on premium vinyl and sold at a premium price.

In the U.S., most of the titles were half speed mastered.  In Japan, most of the titles were digitally remastered pressings. The series did not last long and most titles were quickly discontinued.   Memories was one of several Barbra Streisand albums to be released as part of the series.
