Barbra And Barry
Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb have re-teamed for a collaborative album in the vein of their 1980 smash hit, "Guilty." Due this week via Columbia in DualDisc form, the new "Guilty Pleasures" is led by the Streisand/Gibb duets "Come Tomorrow" and "Above the Law."
Other tracks that made the cut include "Hideaway," "Night of My Life," "Without Your Love" and "Golden Dawn." The album was recorded at Gibb's studio in Miami and at Sony Pictures Studio in Culver City, Calif.
Behind-the-scenes footage of Streisand and Gibb working on the new project will be found on the DVD side of the DualDisc, as well as performances of "Stranger in a Strange Land," "Above the Law," "Hideaway" and a piano version of "Letting Go."
Like its predecessor, "Guilty Pleasures" finds Streisand performing material penned for her by Gibb. It's her first studio album of new songs since 1999's "A Love Like Ours."
"Guilty" remains a landmark of adult contemporary pop music, as well as one of Streisand's best-selling albums. The set spawned three top 10 hits on Billboard's pop singles chart: "Woman in Love" (No. 1), "Guilty" (No. 3) and "What Kind of Fool" (No. 10). The title track also won a Grammy for best pop vocal performance, duo or group.
