Album Review

The biggest selling album of Barbra Streisand's career is also one of her least characteristic. The album was written and produced by Barry Gibb in association with his brothers and the producers of the Bee Gees, and in essence it sounds like a post-Saturday Night Fever Bee Gees album with vocals by Streisand. Gibb adapted his usual style somewhat, especially in slowing the tempos and leaving more room for the vocal, but his melodic style and the backup vocals, even when they are not sung by the Bee Gees, are typical of them. Still, the record was more hybrid than compromise, and the chart-topping single "Woman in Love" has a sinuous feel that is both right for Streisand and new for her. Other hits were the title song and "What Kind of Fool," both duets with Gibb. (The song "Guilty" won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal by Duo or Group.)

Customer Reviews

PURE GOLD

Pure gold. The Production values are through the roof. If you think you have godd stereo system this album will prove it or not. Gibb is a genius. Streisand is simply the best we'll ever know in our lifetime. Own it. Billy Beyond

my guilty pleasure

What A Way To Begin Phase Three...

"Guilty" was released in 1980 and charted a new territory for Barbra. It marks the first time ever that an album would be pre-recorded and she would have to overdub her vocals. She and Barry did clash a bit, he stated there was one song Barbra absolutely hated and he rushed "What Kind Of Fool" to replace it. She must have known what she was talking about because "What Kind Of Fool" would become one of this albums biggest hits alongside "Woman In Love" and the title track "Guilty." "Promises" was extended and remixed for the clubs, too bad the DualDisc remaster of this cd doesn't contain that track. The mastered version here is the original AAD designation, not remastered, and the three hit songs from this cd will be remastered for "The Essential Barbra," "Guilty" will find another home first on Barbra's boxed set with a bit of studio chatter on the fadeout.

Barbra Streisand's status as one of the most successful singers of her generation was remarkable not only because her popularity was achieved in the face of a dominant musical trend -- rock & roll -- which she did not follow, but also because she used her vocal skills as a mere stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and as a film director. Born in 1942 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she struggled briefly as an actress and nightclub singer in New York during the early '60s...
