About the Album

Columbia ad for Once Voice album

One Voice, released in 1987, is a 20-plus-year-old CD that has not been touched by Columbia since it was originally released. It'd be nice if Sony/Columbia remastered it.

One Voice DVD

Please note that Rhino Entertainment released the DVD of One Voice in 2006. Rhino replicated the CD artwork for the DVD. John Arrias is credited on the DVD as “Remix Engineer and Mastering Supervision”.

So, it's possible—with the DVD—to see and hear One Voice with fantastic sound. However, it's a shame that the CD is still on the market sounding 30 years old.

Billboard Charts

The Billboard 200 is a ranking of the 200 highest-selling music albums in the United States, published weekly by Billboard magazine.

Here's the numbers for this Streisand album:

Gold: 500,000 units shipped

Platinum: 1 million units shipped.

Note: The record company must submit an album to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) where it undergoes a certification process to become eligible for an award. The process entails an independent sales audit, which calculates the quantity of singles or albums shipped for sale, net after returns. The audit surveys shipments to the entire music marketplace, including retail, record clubs, television sales, Internet orders and other ancillary markets. Based on the certification of these shipments, a title is awarded Gold, Platinum, Multi-Platinum or Diamond status. The data here comes directly from official sources, mainly the RIAA online database.
