A Star Is Born is the soundtrack album to the 1976 musical film of the same name, performed by its stars Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. The album was very successful, holding the number-one spot on the Billboard 200 chart for six weeks and eventually was certified 4× Platinum by RIAA for more than 4 million copies with a reported 15 million copies worldwide in the liner notes of the Streisand's album Release Me.
According to the liner notes of Barbra's compilation box set Just for the Record, the album also received a record certification in New Zealand, Brazil, the Netherlands, Italy and Mexico. The import version of the CD adds the Spanish version of Evergreen as a bonus track.
The songs that appear on the soundtrack are in most cases alternate (live) and studio recordings that do not appear in the film. The alternate version of "Lost Inside of You" that actually appears in the movie, was finally released in 1991 as part of the 4-CD Barbra Streisand Anthology "For The Record". The only thing missing from the movie version is the final piano melody which is intact in this version.
