Synopsis >

Barry Gibb Demo - What Kind of Fool. Guilty is an album released by Barbra Streisand in 1980. After the success of the Bee Gees in 1977/1978 there was some time to perform songwriting for other artists and Barbra Streisand asked Barry Gibb to write an album for her.[1] It became her best-selling album to date with sales (according to Streisand's official website) of over 20 million copies[2] and was produced by the Bee Gees' Barry Gibb and the Bee Gees' regular production team of Albhy Galuten and Karl Richardson. The title track, a duet between Streisand and Gibb, won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1981, and was a #3 Billboard Hot 100 hit. The first single "Woman in Love" became one of the most successful songs of Streisand's music career and spent a total of three weeks at the #1 position in the Billboard chart. "What Kind of Fool", another duet with Gibb, reached #10. The fourth single, "Promises", a more disco-oriented track released in May 1981, reached as high as #48. This song was also released on Streisand's first commercially-released 12" disco single as a solo artist following her 1979 duet with Donna Summer and two "promotional" 12" singles released for "Shake Me, Wake Me (When It's Over) in 1975, and "The Main Event/Fight" in 1979. Streisand released a sequel to this album, Guilty Pleasures, in 2005, also produced and largely written by Gibb.
