Hurry! dont miss this chance to own some of the rarest records on earth.  


A series of bootleg Barbra Streisand albums were released in 1984 and 1985 called “The Kismet Albums.” 6,11,14,15

Slickly packaged and mass-produced, the sound quality on these albums tended to be poor as many of the master recordings were from television sources or severely duped studio tapes. There were 12 albums in total (which sold for around $20 each), all containing rare and unreleased Streisand songs, recording sessions, interviews, live appearances, TV shows, and more. They were produced by Karma Productions in Denver, Colorado. (Karma also published Barbra Now & Then magazine.)

In the mid-1980’s, before the advent of compact discs and VCRs, most Streisand fans did not have the ability to rent or trade video tapes of the rare television appearances — and YouTube was still 25 years away! The Kismet records were probably the first time most Streisand fans could hear some of the shows that Barbra had appeared on early in her career (like Judy Garland and Ed Sullivan).

The first four album covers featured gorgeous full-color Streisand pictures. All the albums were stamped in gold: “For promotional use only. Not for sale.” This didn’t stop Columbia Records, of course, from pursuing legal action against Karma Productions.

In a backwards way the Kismet albums were a template for Columbia’s official release, Just For the Record (JFTR) in 1991. Many of the tracks that appeared as bootlegs on the Kismet albums ended up on Columbia’s official release. Without the Kismet records, Columbia would have never guessed there would be such a market for Streisand’s unreleased material.
