Editorial Reviews

Robin Gibb, backed with a full orchestra, plays hits from both his Bee Gees and solo careers in a spectacular concert filmed in Bonn, Germany in September 2004. Robin Gibb is one third of the Bee Gees, one of the most successful vocal groups of all time. The Bee Gees have sold over 100 million albums over their 3-decade career, and their catalog still consistently sells. A new Best Of CD and DVD (both were released in late 2004) have continued this trend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Gibb Excels! May 6, 2005
Verified Purchase
Having an early release of this DVD, I must admit Robin Gibb sounds extremely good, even if he appears a bit stiff onstage. His mood is upbeat and he seems to truly be enjoying himself, sleek and dressed all in black, (hair-piece too). He is backed by the Frankfurt Philharmonic Orchestra (they also worked with Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues, previously). The setting is rich and intimate with a brilliant light show. Most of the songs are Bee Gees titles that sound somewhat empty without the harmonies (there are four back-up singers emulating the Bee Gees, which is to be expected). Despite that, the deliveries are still great. "Emotion" is brilliant, however, and "My Lover's Prayer" has a nifty surprise with Errol Reid (great singer). Robin's own personal material, ("Please", Juliet", etc.) is more powerful and engaging with a vocal that still sounds fantastic, albeit a tad worn and an octave lower. On "Juliet" the audience continues to sing the chorus after the song ends, resulting in the band indulging in a short reprise. It's total fun! Robin did not sing any material from his "Secret Agent" or "Walls Have Eyes" albums, which was disappointing, nor any other songs from "How Old Are You". He never sang, "I Started A Joke", but did sing "Words" which I found very odd. Some of his work is even sung acapello showcasing his vibrant voice. It's not the Bee Gees, but it's a historic event of one third of pop's greatest trio.

The photo section is fun, if not inspired and the short videos of his estate is amazing ('Joan of Arc' was tried there?). This guy has some estate!

4.0 out of 5 stars Robin's DVD August 9, 2005
I really can't understand all the negative criticism Robin has received regarding the release of this DVD/CD. Come on people can't you see the guy is having a lot of fun and making people happy. Don't take things so seriously. It's nice to hear some of the Bee Gees songs with a different lead vocal and not so much falsetto, which I really wish they had never stumbled across. I think he did a wonderful job and the orchestra comes across really great. It's just nice to see that Robin didn't go into a deep depression after the loss of his twin brother and went back to what made them happy, singing.

I mean come on everyone the guy was in on writing all of these songs, so why can't he perform them. Congratulations Robin on a great piece of work and I enjoy it every time I watch it. I highly recommend this CD/DVD. I just hope and pray he and Barry can put aside their differences and work together again or maybe Barry could produce Robin's next CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Choose the DVD June 30, 2005
I have a review already in place for the cd version of this concert. I thought I was writing a review of the DVD. The cd version misses, Emotion, and the sound is muddier than the DVD. The DVD in 5.1 sound brings out the separation, and brings up Robin's vocals. If you are to choose between the two, buy the DVD. If you like Robin as a vocalist, get them both. To watch the interaction and the genuine good feeling amongst the participants is part of the ambience on the disc. I have read negative reviews of some due to Robin singing songs Barry did lead on. Being a fan of the 60's and 80's and 90's Bee Gees sound, over the course of time the falsetto of the Children of the World and Spirits era becomes too much. I find Robin's take on some of these songs refreshing. It's much better on the DVD, with a good sound system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD March 11, 2006
If you're a fan of the Bee Gees then this DVD is for you. The tracks are either Robin's songs or Bee Gees songs and are done well with the backing of the Frankfurt Orchestra. This all makes "Orchestral" Robin Gibb come out smelling like a rose. Overall, the DVD is a treat for the fans as it captures Robin rebounding well from the loss of his twin brother and seeking redemption and life in music.

What slowly emerges out of the DVD is not whether Robin should have covered Barry's songs (sounds like a silly argument at a home for the elderly) but that music can be a catalyst for finding that life is worth living if only people will give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY MAGICAL AND FANTASTIC!!! June 20, 2005
By Jose
Robin Gibb solidifies his place as a legend among the best of the best with his 2004 performance in the DVD. It truly is a shame that we can no longer be graced with the work of the three brothers as the Bee Gees, but Robin, as himself, does an excellent job in bringing life to those songs, ranging from Words and Saved By The Bell through the Saturday Night Fever era to his current hits, including Please and My Lover's Prayer. He, along with his brothers, can be placed with the greatest and most inspirational songwriters in history; he and his music continue to awe, amaze, and inspire all of us, and I am honored to have been able to appreciate their work. And this all coming from a 19-year-old fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this DVD!! June 5, 2006
By Natalia
I really enjoyed this DVD. As a longtime Bee Gees fan as well as a huge follower of Robin's solo career I was very happy to see him singing his own songs as well as Bee Gees songs. Hearing a different take on the songs, but still keeping them within the Bee Gees was really nice. Some of the other reviewers on here think he should stick to his own songs--I think that since he helped write like all of the Bee Gees songs they're just as much his to sing as Barry's. He isn't claiming to be better than the Bee Gees or "do it all on his own", he is simply singing the songs he wrote and loved to perform with his brothers. It's a nice tribute to the Bee Gees. This DVD is a simple, relaxed, fun acoustic performance. The crowd really gets into it--especially on his solo smash "Juliet", where they sing the chorus way after the band has stopped playing it.

At times the orchestra is really strong and seems to overpower him a bit but for the most part his voice and the orchestra sound very nice together. I love hearing Robin's soulful unique voice all raw and unedited like this.

I'd recommend this DVD for any Bee Gee fans, and of course this is a must-have for Robin Gibb fans. It is a very sweet and charming performance and to be honest it is a lot better than I expected after reading all the negative reviews on here!
