Barbra Streisand on the passing of her longtime record producer and sound engineer, Phil Ramone

I’m so saddened to learn of Phil’s passing.

 We first worked together in 1967 when I did a free concert in Central Park. His brilliance at capturing sound was immediately evident.

 Later we worked together on the film “A Star Is Born” where Phil was able to record me singing live, including “Evergreen”.

 In the next decade we worked on the soundtrack to “Yentl” and many other recordings.

 Phil had impeccable musical taste, great ears and the most gentle way of bringing out the best in all the artists he worked with. The monumental recordings he produced will endure for all time.
