Chart performance and sales[edit]

After the success of Streisand's previous two albums, The Barbra Streisand Album and The Second Barbra Streisand Album, it was expected that The Third Album would do as well. The album turned out to be very successful; it reached #5 on Billboard's Pop Albums Chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA.

The photograph on the album cover was taken by Roddy McDowall when Streisand was performing on The Judy Garland Show in October 1963. In 1979, singer and songwriter Paul Jabara released The Third Album" on Casablanca Records and paid homage to Streisand's Third Album cover.[1]
