It was I who triggered normal people to become Trekkies, even if they had never watched just one "Star Trek" episode before in their lives. I come at a time when people were actually feeling hopeful about peace and the human race could achieve the life viewers saw on the show. I would lead to a resurgence in sci-fi television programming, including three more Trek series (and many knock-offs) which would run for ten years. I would also lead to the reincarnation of that other franchise with "star" in its title, which I now deeply regret.

I'm the 30 years of musical history finally released as "Barbra Streisand...Just for the Record". I'm a 4 CD boxed set or 4 Cassette tape boxed set, plus a booklet written by Streisand herself, covering Streisand's 30 year music history at Columbia Records. It's an elaborately packaged box set which stuns critics and fans alike.

I'm over four hours of music for her die-hard fans, with 94 tracks - 67 tracks have never been released. I've been in the works since 1983, when Streisand mentioned this 'retrospective music career project' she had been working on while she was doing press for YENTL. The working title was originally "Act One".

I retail for $79.95, but usually marked down to $59.95. I'm a huge hit, peaking at #38 on the Hot 200 Albums Chart (not bad for a 4 Disc set) and I stay on the charts for 16 weeks. I sell Gold status upon release, and within a year I'm selling Platinum. A companion piece of a 12 disc DVD set covering all my television appearances is also in the works at this time according to press releases, but you will never see it. However, 'Just for the Record' will be repackaged and reissued on CD time and time again over the next 30 years.

Move over Barbra...I am Miss Diana Ross' "Forever Diana: A Musical Memoir" ! I'm released in September, 1993, exactly two years after Streisand's boxed set 30 year career retrospective, and this Motown release celebrates the 30 year musical history of Miss Diana Ross. I'm anticipated to be a must-have for all Diana fans, however...

"Forever Diana" is a 4 disc (or 4 cassette tape) set of Ross recordings dating back to her debut in 1962, and covering all her hits with The Supremes (1960s) on Disc1, her solo career with Motown (1970s) on Disc 2 , her recordings under RCA (1980s) on Disc 3, and a hodge-podge of new recordings under Motown on Disc 4. There are 77 tracks covering 5 hours of music, but all those recordings have been released in the past with only 5 new recordings never released before. I also have a comprehensive booklet included, written by Miss Ross (but I'm heavy on fashion photos of Ross, and light on editorial) . Overall, I'm a disappointment to fans and critically panned across the board by music critics.

I'm disappointing to fans and panned by the critics because this career retrospective omits many of my greatest hits from the 60s and 70s, and completely ignores two of my RCA albums (1983's "Ross" and 1987's "Red Hot Rhythm and Blues"). Some of the biggest hits included in this set are edited down to save time - even though the full length tracks have been used on every other hits compilation in my career.

As if the disappointing track-listing isn't enough, there's controversy over the audio quality of the boxed set - due to the faulty mastering of the Mono singles featured on the album, resulting in uneven sound quality. Motown had to recall the first pressings. Adding insult to injury - there is an error on many of the pressings of Disc 2. Instead of the listed track "Surrender", the track that was actually included is "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You", which was a track featured on the 1971 album 'Surrender". All this with a $79.99 retail price (usually marked down to $59.99) ? Really, Motown ?

The end result is embarrassing for Miss Ross and Motown. Unlike Streisand's boxed set, which peaked at #38 on the Hot 200 Billboard Album Charts and stayed on the charts for four months, 'Forever Diana' didn't crack the Hot 200 Billboard Album Charts. It peaked at #88 on the Top R&B Charts, and quickly fell off in a matter of weeks. Unlike Streisand's career retrospective (which sold Gold upon release and quickly was certified Platinum, as well as being reissued over the past 30 years) I have only sold 73,000 copies in the past 30 years. I've been out of print for decades, as Motown quickly put me out of my misery. There's plenty of used copies available on eBay, Amazon, etc. so buy at your own risk.

To complete Ross' 30 years in her career, there's also a memoir released at the same time. Stay tuned...

I'm Diana Ross' autobiography titled "Secrets of a Sparrow" and released just a few weeks after her musical memoir, 'Forever Diana'. I'm 299 pages, and to put it mildly - I'm a disappointment, once again, to fans and I'm critically panned by just about every book reviewer. I manage to land on practically everyone's list of 'Worst Non-Fiction Books' at the end of the year. Though I schedule a few book signings - mainly at a 5th Avenue book store in Manhattan and Harrods of London - I still can't sell books. Within months, I'm found in the bargain bins at major booksellers across the country at 80 % off.

Why is this much-anticipated memoir such a flop ? Because Miss Ross wisely glossed over the controversies which plagued her career in the 1960s, and instead looked at everything through rose-tinted glasses. She compares the challenges of living the life of a celebrity to that of the Viet Nam War (seriously) and explains how difficult it is to travel on planes with 'big hair' (very seriously). What was most strange - Miss Ross reiterates throughout her memoir how she hates to 'revisit the past' and likes to move ahead and talk about the promises of the future. Readers laughed out loud.

I'm "Mistaken Identity" - Donna Summer's 15th studio album released in August, 1991 on Atlantic Records (same label who released her 1989 hit dance album 'Another Place And Time'). I'm Summer's experiment into hip-hop music (after conquering disco, pop, R&B, new wave, and dance music to varying degrees in the past 16 years). I received mixed reviews by critics. but overall, I'm a complete failure - not even charting on the Hot 200 Albums or the UK Album Charts. It did debut at #97 on the US R&B Albums Chart, and then fell off the chart after one week.

The single "When Love Cries" peaked at #77 on the US Hot 100 Singles and #18 on the Hot R&B Singles chart, but failed to chart anywhere else in the world. The second single, "Work That Magic" never charted in the US, but peaked at #74 on the UK Singles Chart. The album was then released as a 'deluxe edition' in 2014, with added remixes of the two singles.

I'm Barbra Streisand's new movie 'The Prince of Tides', based on the Pat Conroy best-seller from the 80s. Streisand will star, direct, produce and sell the popcorn in your movie theater lobby. She originally wanted Don Johnson to play the character Tom Wingo, but Johnson wasn't interested (they broke up as a couple a few years prior). Streisand cast Nick Nolte instead.

The movie was quite different from the novel, and author Pat Conroy approved (as he co-wrote the screenplay). Streisand's psychiatrist character 'Sue Lowenstein' took front and center of the film, even though she was a secondary character in the novel. Critics noted she did plenty of close-ups on herself and her body, for reasons of pure vanity. Streisand also turned the psychological drama into a love story, which upset many of Conroy's audience.

The film did get mostly positive reviews from critics when it opened on Christmas Day in 1991, and turned out to be a box office success - grossing nearly $75 M at the box office during its run. It managed to stay in the top 10 for 7 weeks. It placed in the Top 20 highest grossing films of the year.

When Oscar nominations were announced, the film grabbed seven Oscars - including Best Picture. However, Streisand was ignored in the 'Best Actress' category as well as 'Best Director'. Oscar host Billy Crystal asked if the film directed itself ? (The year before, the film "Awakenings" also won a 'Best Picture' nomination, but the director was snubbed). Out of the 7 nominations, the film went home with none at the end of the night. This seems to be the beginning of the end of Streisand's movie career (she would only do three more films in the next 32 years).

Once there I got into clubbing and the house music scene pretty quick. My "gateway" into house was Technotronic, SNAP, and Deee-Lite - groups I discovered before I moved and all of which I consider "commercial dance" music - with some house overtones. I guess some mixes of Deee-Lite in particular were actual house music, but I still consider all these groups a precursor to a much deeper dive into house music. All of them bring back good memories.

I'm Whitney Houston's new 1990 album "I'm Your Baby Tonight". Her first two albums from 1985 and 1987 sold a combined 30 million albums, but the black community said Whitney's too white and bought Janet Jackson's music instead.

So Whitney and her boss Clive Davis (head of Arista) are about to change that with Miss Houston recording this new album with a new 'urban jack swing' pop sound to prove she's a black chick just like Janet Jackson. She co-exec produces the album, and brings in Babyface and LA Reid (a known jack swing production team) to put her in the 'black direction' on the album. Gone is the sugary white pop music she recorded in the past, appealing to a white audience.

Unlike her previous two albums "Whitney Houston" and "Whitney", this album does not top the Hot 200 Albums Chart. It peaks at #3, and stayed on the Hot 200 chart for 51 weeks. It did better on the R&B Album Chart, where it peaked at #1 and stayed there for 8 (non-consecutive) weeks, and remained on the chart for 53 weeks. Critics say she is in 'strong voice' but 'weak material' with this new 'urban direction'. The album ends up selling over 4 million copies as of the end of 2021.

The title track was the first single, and peaked at #1 on the Hot 100 Singles Chart, giving Houston her eighth #1 single. It stayed there for a week. The second single was the ballad "All The Man That I Need", which also topped the Hot 100 Singles Chart, and stayed there for three weeks. "Miracle" was her third single, and peaked at #9. "My Name Is Not Susan" was the fourth single, and peaked at #20. The fifth single was "I Belong To You" but failed to chart on the Hot 100 Singles.

During Grammy Awards season, the First and Second singles were nominated for 'Best Pop Vocal Performance - Female' but neither won. The last single was nominated for 'Best R&B Performance - Female' and failed to win. The album itself picked up no Grammy nominations, at all.

I'm Whitney Houston's stunning rendition of 'The Star Spangled Banner', performed somewhat live at Superbowl XXV at the Tampa Stadium, on January 27, 1991. Though Houston was performing live, she was singing into a dead microphone. Thanks to her music producer Rickey Minor, who prepared her for performing live on this day with the many risks involved, television viewers were listening to a pre-recorded recording of Houston. The performance was a huge hit among critics and viewers, so Arista released it as a charity single to raise money for the soldiers and families who were serving in the the Gulf War. The single peaked at #30 on the Hot 100 Singles.

After the 9-11 attacks ten years later, the single was released once again to raise money for the firefighters and families who suffered in the attacks (she donated part of her profits). In 2001, the single peaked at #6 on the Hot 100 Singles Chart, making Houston the first musical act to bring the national anthem into the top 10, and the first act to have it certified platinum. The 2001 re-release was also the last time Houston would place a single in the Top 10 on the Hot 100 Singles. As of today, the single has sold over 2 million copies with the original release and the re-release.

In May, 2000 the recording was included for the first time on a Houston album, when it was included on her album 'Whitney: The Greatest Hits" . The inclusion caused a lot of controversy with the Florida Orchestra, which sued Arista Records in December, 2001 for royalties from copies of the song re-released after Sept. 11 and placed on a Whitney Houston Greatest Hits album and videocassette. Leonard Stone, then orchestra executive director, said "It is a pity that we have to go to court on something so honorable and uplifting as the national anthem. [...] I suspect that Whitney Houston, if she knew, would be deeply hurt and offended as well. She was a friend of the orchestra," filing the lawsuit in Hillsborough Circuit Court asked a judge to enforce the terms of a 1991 agreement that requires Arista to pay the orchestra royalties on all sales worldwide of her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." The lawsuit was settled out of court.

I'm the long anticipated, 8 years in the making "Back to Broadway" album by Barbra Streisand, the sequel to her Grammy-winning, 5X Platinum seller "The Broadway Album" from 1985. I debut at #1 on the Hot 200 Albums Chart, becoming my first #1 album of the 90s and securing my place in history as having a #1 album in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s (stick around for another 20 years as I score a #1 album in the 00s and 10s, too). What makes me even happier is that I knock Janet Jackson's popular "janet." out of the top position for one week - and I ship platinum to retailers during its debut week. Columbia also honors her with a plaque, congratulating her on her 50th studio album.

I was originally planned in 1988, under producer Rupert Holmes. However, I was aborted mid-way, after eight songs (including a soaring rendition of 'Make Our Garden Grow') were recorded (in what many have said was Streisand's vocal peak). In an interview later, Holmes couldn't really explain why the project was ended mid-way through in April, 1988. It was rumored that Streisand just didn't find the project 'exciting'.

Streisand returns to recording Broadway songs in the beginning of 1993. Andre Lloyd Webber and Don Black visit Streisand at her home with the new songs they wrote for ALW's major musical "Sunset Boulevard" which will open in London that summer. Streisand records the two show-stoppers "With One Look" and "As If We Never Said Goodbye", lyrics rewritten to Streisand's liking. These recordings cause a lot of controversy, starting with the critics loving her vocals but pan her choice of these two songs, since the musical won't be on Broadway for 18 months after the album's release, making the album less authentic than its predecessor. They point out that Streisand was more restrictive on her choice of songs for the original "Broadway Album" eight years earlier. Patti Lupone , star of the London production which is ready to open in July, goes public with her displeasure at both Streisand and ALW - Lupone says she was promised to have her recordings of these two songs (on the 'Original Cast Recording' released a few weeks after this Streisand album) be the first recordings released to the public. She's extremely pissed that Streisand's two recordings are played on a 'loop' in the lobby of the Adelphi Theater while patrons are purchasing tickets, and on the phone - while customers are on 'hold' waiting to buy tickets.

Aside from the 'SB' fiasco, critics also pan Streisand for her lackluster duet with Michael Crawford on 'Music of the Night'. They also rip apart her version of 'Some Enchanted Evening' as well as 'Luck Be A Lady'. Fans are not thrilled with her choice of songs either. The reviewer form TIME Magazine puts it nicely : "Streisand stumbles on her way Back to Broadway".

A planned Madonna duet of "Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better" from 'Annie Get Your Gun' is scrapped when the two divas had scheduling conflicts. Streisand duets with Johnny Mathis for a nice 'West Side Story' medley.

The album releases the single "With One Look" in the UK Europe, but no single from the album is releases stateside. Other singles from the album are released in the UK and Europe as promotional singles only (not for retail) to radio, but none are released in the US.

The album ends up selling 2X Platinum - not bad at all, but way short of it's predecessor which sold 4X platinum (as of 1995), and remained at #1 for three weeks.

Yes it is. If someone has blocked you, then your post won’t show. So on their screen, it would go from response 237 to 239.

If you put the letter R in front of a number, it creates a hyperlink to that post. So they can override the block by clicking on the hyperlink and see the response. It makes no sense at all, but DataLounge has to make room for the passive/aggressive dizzy queens who want to banish you from their kingdom but still want to know what you’re saying.

I'm the last historical period before the internet and cell phones/smartphones are a consistent and persistent part of everyday life. Yes, the internet exists now and cell phones exist too, but neither is a deep, broad, absolute necessary part of life and culture. Because if this, I (the early 1990s) am different from all periods that come after and life is simply lived differently. True, it's not like everything changed overnight once my brother - the mid 90s - came on the scene - but still, I'd argue that I'm the last gasp of life as broadly lived without those things.

by Anonymousreply 290June 21, 2023 2:14 PM

Oh, God. This is getting like the arguments over generation dates. Here's my breakdown:

Early '90s: 1990, 1991, 1992

Middle '90s: 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996

Late '90s: 1997, 1998, 1999

So 1993 could be on the cusp of early '90s, but 1994 is squarely in the middle '90s. And real numbers are what count here, not "feels" over 1988 or 9/11/2001.

by Anonymousreply 291June 21, 2023 4:18 PM

"How are The Real McCoy not early 90s? They had singles out in 1994."

I guess if you divide decades in two - 1994 is early. But it's common to divide decades into three parts - early (0-3) mid (4-6) and late (7-9). Most of the decade or era specific posts that I've seen on DL and beyond DL deal with the three-part decade. So you're not completely wrong, but if others are using the three-part decade, then they'll disagree with 1994 being early.

I was created to tie up 'loose ends' from the show's abrupt cancellation by ABC in May, 1989. The cast comes back with slight pay cuts, scenes are filmed 'on location' (to save the expense of rebuilding sets) but no money is spared on the costumes for Joan Collins and Linda Evans - together they have 42 costume changes for four hours of television.

The reunion is critically panned, but attracts 23M viewers the first night, and 20 M the second night - retaining 90% of its audience. Another reunion is planned for the following season, but plans are dropped.

We're Larry Kramer and Barbra Streisand. The early 90s are going to be tumultuous for us, at best.

Streisand opted for film rights for Larry Kramer's play 'The Normal Heart' in 1985, but first had to make 'Nuts' . Then she had to make "Prince of Tides". She claimed TNH is dear to her heart - Kramer doesn't believe her.

Now it's 1992, and Streisand promises the movie will come out in the next few years. But first, they will go head to head and toe to toe in some of the biggest fights Hollywood has ever seen. But Streisand and Kramer will get it made...?

I'm grunge music, which is *rock* music. We didn't know it, at the time, but I (grunge) would be the final part of the rock era. 😢

I'm Stone Temple Pilots, maybe the greatest of the grunge bands, but I never get credit for it.

STP was oddly dismissed by some critics. "A singles band" (which isn't really a horrible insult, but it was meant to be), and just not taken as seriously as their contemporaries of the time. Again, that's by a cross-section of snobby journalists, not everyone.

I think of the early 90s as the dawn of the Age of Acquittals.

LAPD/Rodney King and O.J. This idea that the evidence against you in an egregious crime could be smokin' and you could still get off. It marked the beginning of a cynicism that has not abated.

by Anonymousreply 381June 26, 2023 5:24 PM

Please, R381. Is "grunge" really, still today, some sort of authentic status thing? It was a marketing tool, like anything. Is STP the greatest band ever. No. But, they're somehow wildly below the bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam? Nevermind, while great, is as glossy and corporate as it gets. Oh wait, they were released on a subsidiary of a major label - so they're SUPER indie and authentic.

R382 Nirvana came from the underground. If STP gor together 5 years earlier than they did, they would be a Sunset Strip hairspray & spandex glam band. But in '92 that was no longer in, so they became an "alternative" band. Same with Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains. But even if they were the most authentic band on the planet, their music would still suck donkey's balls

If that were case, the thread would be titled "Let's be the 1990s"

OP specified that s/he wants to discuss EARLY 90s culture, even posting things from the late 80s would be more appropriate.

R387 and R390 I disagree. I think the mid-90s begins in 1995. Therefore, 1994 would STILL be the early 90s.

Then again...nobody asked me BUT we DAMN sho didn't ask you.

Commence to fucking off, please.

by Anonymousreply 396June 28, 2023 12:06 PM

By that definition the late 90s would begin in 1996, so mid-90s would be only one year. Having been there 1990 through 1992 were a different era from 1994 through 1996. 1993 was a transition, but that could be because where I was in my life at the time.

R421, When I lived in NYC, I used to stop by Bang Bang on Eighth Ave in Chelsea on payday and pick out a snazzy shirt to wear to Roxy. The issue was because of the bright and intricate designs, you couldn’t have ANY trace of a belly and they were all cut trim to emphasize your pecs and chest. If you were the least bit fat they looked ridiculous! They were also before fast fashion, and ran $70-150 a shirt, expensive for what they were.

One time, I had bought a bouquet of flowers just beforehand and the saleswoman/manager I got along with swimmingly thought they were for her! LOL

I got half off everything that day. I can’t tell you how many wound up clogged in a nightclub toilet or lost on a dance floor!
