Barbra Streisand's Greatest Hits Volume 2 is the second greatest hits album recorded by American vocalist Barbra Streisand. It was released on November 15, 1978 by Columbia Records. The album is a compilation consisting of ten commercially successful singles from the singer's releases in the 1970s, with a majority of them being cover songs. It also features a new version of "You Don't Bring Me Flowers", which was released as the collection's only single on October 7, 1978.

Between the release of Barbra Streisand's first hits collection in 1970 and her second in 1978, she essentially became a different kind of recording artist. In the 1960s, she made a series of consistent albums devoted largely to show music material, but she scored precious few singles hits, with only one, "People," and reaching the Top Ten. But in the 1970s, she shifted to contemporary soft-rock and released a series of highly successful ballad singles, while her albums became largely inconsistent. And More would be forced to cannibalize it. It was also a genre-defining album in terms of the emergence of a post-'60s contemporary pop music that drew upon the rock revolution to redefine classic pop for a new generation.

Barbra Streisand's Greatest Hits: Volume 2 was Barbra's fourth album to reach on the charts. Its sales (and the fact that it came out only six months after Barbra's studio album, Songbird) were driven by Barbra's duet with Neil Diamond - You Don’t Bring Me Flowers. Here is the story behind the making of a single and album. To begin with, both Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand had already recorded solo versions of the song on separate albums for Columbia Records. Then the program director for WAKY Radio, Louisville, Kentucky - Gary Guthrie - enters the story.

Greatest Hits Vol. 2" is the second greatest hits album and fourth . album by Barbra Streisand. Released in 1978, it included Streisand's greatest hits from the previous eight years with one new track, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," a duet with Neil Diamond which never appeared on a previous Streisand album. Greatest Hits Vol. 2" was also the only Streisand album where the song Prisoner appeared. It originally appeared on the now out-of-print soundtrack album to "The Eyes of Laura Mars".
