The Second Barbra Streisand Album is the title of Barbra Streisand's second solo studio album. It was released in August 1963, just six months after the release of her debut album, The Barbra Streisand Album, and was recorded in four days in June 1963.
In 1963, Streisand told a reporter: "My new album is called The Second Barbra Streisand Album, because that's just what it is. Why should I give it some fancy name that no one remembers anyway?"
Radio stations received mono and stereo blue vinyl promo albums, making this Columbia's first Streisand colored vinyl.
The album made its digital debut on CD in 1987 and was re-released in a remastered CD edition on October 19, 1993.
"Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home" was first introduced in the musical St. Louis Woman.
"Right as the Rain" was originally performed by Celeste Holm and David Brooks in the 1944 musical Bloomer Girl. Tony Bennett also recorded a version of the song in 1960 for his album A String of Harold Arlen.
