5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Hurrah! Well Done! November 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not to be excluded from the list of other artists that have released compilations containing only #1 songs, the Bee Gees have no worries. Although some of the hits didn't actually make #1 in the UK or the USA, some may have been #1 in several other countries, prompting it to be thankfully included here. "Number Ones" features 19-tracks, adding cuts such as the country flavored "Don't Forget To Remember" (#34 in USA/#2 in UK) and the immortal "Words" (#15 USA/#8 UK). Although the Bee Gees never had these few songs at #1, other artists have consistently placed these songs at the top of the charts.

The last song is 2001's "Man in the Middle," a polite MOR rocker and is included as a tribute to the late Maurice Gibb. If you buy this early, you'll get the limited-edition CD/DVD combo which includes rare footage of the Bee Gees performing "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Jive Talkin'," "Massachusetts" and "I Started a Joke" (from the U.K. TV show "An Audience With").

Trivia: Dozens of songs went to #1 in Holland, Germany and Italy and elsewhere. Here are some well-known and rare Gibb songs that have made it to #1.

"Spicks & Specks" (Australia)

"My World" (Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore)

"Run To Me" (Hong Kong, Singapore)

"Saw A New Morning" (Hong Kong)

"Wouldn't I Be Someone" (Hong Kong)

"Love So Right" (Brazil)

The list goes on and on and will continue to be the legacy of three brothers from Manchester, England.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Collection Than The USA Version! November 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not to be excluded from the list of other artists that have released compilations containing only #1 songs, the Bee Gees have no problems. Although some of the hits didn't actually make #1 in the UK, some may have been #1 in several other countries, prompting it to be thankfully included here.

The song "Man in the Middle" is included as a tribute to the late Maurice Gibb. "Number Ones" features 20-tracks, adding cuts such as "More Than a Woman" and "Islands in the Stream," a 1983 No. 1 hit for Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. If you buy this early, you'll get the limited-edition CD/DVD combo which includes rare footage of the Bee Gees performing "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Jive Talkin'," "Massachusetts" and "I Started a Joke" (from the U.K. TV show "An Audience With").

In this version, "More Than A Woman" replaces the USA versions "Lonely Days" and adds the tracks, "Immortality" and "Islands In The Stream", which are the same versions that are on "The Record".

4.0 out of 5 stars The Top Of The Gibb Charts November 29, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
There is no doubt about the music of the 70's. It still has a strong distinctive vibe that ignites your soul, and just gets you up and groove to the dance floor. That was definitely the case with the music of The Bee Gees. Back in the 70's, they've really shown that they were the talk of the town. They've scored hits that really let fans really shake their groove things. Yet, it is so sad that it has been nearly 6 years since the heartbreaking death of Maurice Gibb that hit music love everywhere hard. But, their catalog also had dissapeared from MP3 websites everywhere for awhile, and the CD sheleves. Now that their catalog had moved a few years ago from Universal to Warner Brothers, fans have had a lot to celebrate, and that comes with the re-release of a single pair of words, Number Ones.

The 2008 re-release of The Bee Gees #1's is a single disc reflection of songs that reached the top of the charts for themselves as well as for others. The collection of songs which was originally released back in 2004, now is back and for the first time available for your MP3 player. The collection features nothing but the biggest hits from Barry, Robin and Maurice which are brilliantly restored, and re-introduced with open arms. The album includes a lot of The Bee Gees biggest pleasures including Stayin' Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Too Much Heaven, and Jive Talkin'. The newly revised collection also includes a few extra tracks that The Bee Gees wrote for others, which they've recorded as their own, Islands In The Stream for Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton and Immortality for Celine Dion. Although the extra tracks are fine, they really are nothing new for anyone who bought the 2001 out of print Bee Gees hits collection, Their Greatest Hits: The Record.

3.0 out of 5 stars Make you wonder... November 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Why they didn't include "To Love Somebody", even though it never went to #1. The reason I state this is because 4 songs here: "Words", "World", "Don't Forget To Remember" and "I Started A Joke" never went to #1 in the US or UK. But then the compilers never tell us what chart methology they're using. Maybe they're including Germany or France or Australia. Who knows? There are no liner notes here, and the packaging has a rush job feel to it. The 5 song DVD is good. As a one CD summation of the Bee Gees' career, this is okay. But you're better off sticking with For The Record, which costs a couple dollars more, but is more thorough.

4.0 out of 5 stars How Deep Is Their Love November 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The past few years, many artists have released records, regarding songs that were hugely acclaimed as #1 tracks. That has remained true, but the feel of each of the records knows something might be missing. That has happened with so many acts including The Beatles, Michael Jackson, DIana Ross & The Supremes, and of course Mariah Carey, that was the first to release a album of #1's. But in the 70's no group was considered #1 like The Bee Gees. The Brothers Gibb have made a huge impact upon the world with a remarkable feel of great music that has lasted for years. They've made people dance, and cry, but the music still shows itself in a extraordinary way.

The Bee Gees #1's is the first release from the Gibb brothers, after the unfortunate tragic death of Maurice Gibb a year ago. This collection fairs quite well with a lot of great songs they've truly made including great songs like How Deep Is Your Love and Stayin' Alive from Saturday Night Fever. The album also includes great ballads like I Started A Joke, Too Much Heaven, and their groundbreaking smash Jive Talkin'. Yet, the album fairs quite well, but like all great hits collections, there is always one that does falter with a few overlooked tracks. The album does overlook a couple of #1 songs including Nights On Broadway, and Barry's collaboration with Barbara Streisand on their smash duet Guilty.

With so many acts releasing Greatest Hits collections including Amy Grant, the manufactured Britney Spears, and Shania Twain, he Bee Gees #1's fairs very well in itself. Yet, there are some that feel their 2001 album Their Greatest Hits: The Record is a better collection, Number Ones fairs very well from the brothers from down under.
