BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 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. “Guilty” became her best-selling album to date with sales (according to Streisand’s official website) of over 20 million copies and was produced by the Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb and the Bee Gees’ regular production team of Albhy Galuten and Karl Richardson.
The fourth single from the, “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 a “promotional” 12″ single released for “Shake Me, Wake Me (When It’s Over) in 1975, and “The Main Event/Fight” in 1979.
