Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded single disc edition of this 1967 album. Bee Gees 1st is a harmony-heavy, rock flavored masterpiece that instantly put the group in the forefront of hit music coming out of the U.K. The album reached #7 on Billboard's Pop Album chart and delivered a trio of Top 20 smashes: "To Love Somebody," "New York Mining Disaster 1941," and "Holiday."

Format: Audio CD
Wrapped in a snug fold-out digipak, this Rhino re-issue of Bee Gees First is a wonder to behold. Being the first international album by the three brothers, Rhino has beautifully remastered the original into one CD that has all the original fourteen songs in Stereo and Mono. These are different sounding recordings and not simply Stereo condensed into Mono. Classics like, "To Love Somebody", "Holiday" and their first big hit "New York Mining Disaster 1941" are given new life. In fact, the latter song has four different versions included here.

Disc 2 contains fantastic Alternate Versions and preciously unreleased material. Compare Barry's lead vocal of "One Minute woman" to Robin's take. Or compare the orchestral and instrumental differences between originals and Alternate Takes of "I Close My Eyes" and Turn Of The Century". It must have been a tough decision to make regarding songs choices. The Bee Gees show a remarkable sense of humor with "Mr. Wallor's Wailing Wall" and Beatle-esque perfection with "Gilbert Green" and "House Of Lords". With 42 songs and a running time of well over 100 minutes, this is a long awaited release. This album made it to #7 on the Billboard charts in 1967! Also includes a colorful booklet packed with trivia, history, album and single photos as well as comments from Barry and Robin Gibb.

It seems that so many albums from the 60's were just a hit or two with a lot of filler. Not this one! I finally got around to ordering it, mainly because I just wanted a definitive version of "New York Mining Disaster 1941" which my father bought as a single when I was a child.

I was amazed at how wonderful this album is to listen to all the way through. Sure, they sounded sort of like the Beatles (at one time I actually thought Holiday was a Beatles song) but they were brilliant.

To me the real underrated jewel of this album is "I Can't See Nobody". This was the B-side of "New York Mining Disaster 1941" and is genuinely beutiful in it's own right, and I believe could have been a monster hit. Hearing it remastered through a quality sound system was mind-boggling.

So, my advice is to pay the money and find a place to relax and enjoy this masterpiece. And, if your only impression of the Bee Gees is from the Disco era (ah ah stayin' alive, stayin' alive) then you are in for quite a surprise!

Just thought I'd add that I got around to listening to the bonus disk and it was certainly worth it. Some of the alternate takes are really great.

It occured to me that some of this early Bee Gees sounds a lot like the progressive stuff that The Move was doing around that time. Really interesting.

Format: Audio CD
"Is it, in fact, unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter day sins?"

The above question, put forth by the character 'Barry'(memorably played by Jack Black) in the movie High Fidelity must be considered when analyzing this fantastic debut by The Bee Gees. Arguably, what was accomplished by the Bee Gees in this album leaves one to tear out their hair when they consider what became of them a mere ten years later. Yes, in this case, it is fair to lump a heaping helping of criticism at the Bee Gees for their latter-day sin of selling-out to the "Disco Craze" of the late 70's(although, admittedly, 'Stayin' Alive' and 'Jive Talking' were pretty incredible).

What is heard on this album is not just good music, but a mere confirmation of what made records of the 60's better than all the rest. 'Bee Gees' 1st' is highlighted by 'New York Mining Disaster 1941' and 'Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You', along with some other delights such as 'Craise Finton Kirk Royal Academy of Arts' and 'I Can't See Nobody'.

This particular package contains both the stereo and mono recordings of the album(Disc One) in addition to a bonus disc of outtakes and previously unreleased bonus tracks(Disc Two).

Hesitate not, ye grand appreciators of outstanding music. Get this album.
