Following the massive success of the Bee Gees in the late 1970s, Barry Gibb began to write and produce songs for other artists. Barbra approached Barry to write songs for her new album, and he ended up doing the entire album, Guilty.
Barry produced all the tracks and provided backing vocals for most of the songs, including the title track duet. He followed this up with the sequel album Guilty Pleasures 25 years later.
