 worldwide chart-topping smash which helped define the emerging Adult
 Contemporary pop music genre following its release in 1980.
     One of the four top-selling albums -- alongside "Greatest Hits Vol.2," "A
 Christmas Album," and "Memories" -- in Ms. Streisand's extraordinary catalog,
 the original "Guilty" became the artist's fifth album to reach the #1 spot on
 Billboard's Pop Albums chart.
     The album generated three hit singles: "Woman In Love" (#1 Adult
 Contemporary, #1 Pop) and the duets with Barry Gibb, "Guilty" (#5 Adult
 Contemporary, #3 Pop) and "What Kind of Fool" (#1 Adult Contemporary, #10
 Pop).  The album's title track, "Guilty," took home the coveted Grammy Award
 for "Best Pop Vocal Performance, Duo or Group."
     Shortly after its release, the original "Guilty" album was certified Gold
 by the Recording Industry Association of America with Platinum status
 following within two months.  "Guilty" has gone on to be certified 5x
 Platinum, with sales exceeding five million copies in the U.S. and 12 million
 worldwide.  With 49 Gold, 30 Platinum and 13 Multi-Platinum albums to her
 credit, Barbra Streisand is the music industry's #1 best-selling female artist
 and the only female on the RIAA's Top 10 list of artists.
