Editorial Reviews

THE ULTIMATE BEE GEES is a double-disc career retrospective featuring the group's many hits and chart-topping singles, performances of a selection of hit songs they wrote for others, and liner notes by Tim Rice.
Tim Rice's liner notes accompanying THE ULTIMATE BEE GEES puts the group's extravagant popularity into perspective. 'Within this package is a collection of performances and songs that very few practitioners of popular music of the past could match for quality, originality, and emotion. It's the singing, the harmonies, the arrangements, the sound, the rivalry, the love, the intelligence, the determination, but above all it's the songs.'
Note: The play list has to be set to the ULTIMATE BEE GEES so that the tracks can appear in English.

Customer Reviews

I would recommend this CD to anyone who simply wants to enjoy the good music.

Yes, it's a new "greatest hits" package, with many of the songs in previous collections...the big difference is: 2009 REMASTERS!!!!! These remasters, post "Odessa" are the first time they're released...previous packages by Rhino like "Greatest Hits: The Record" and "Gold", plus "Love Songs" and "Vol 1" & "Vol 2" are not just OLD masters, but straight reissues from Universal...NOT 2009 REMASTERS!!!! Did you like the remasters on the album reissues so far??? "Odessa" was killer, right?? Take that quality of remaster and add it to their whole catalogue...it's a taste of what's to come!! I popped on CD1..."You Should Be Dancing"...the difference is instantaneous...the remasters in your face...I heard instruments that were BURIED...percussion parts, bits of piano, guitar riffs, a warmer sound...I did NOT expect this at ALL...my eyes popped out of my skull...and there was no advance word of this type of KILLER remastering...it wasn't hyped like the new Beatles remasters, but these remasters are on par with the Beatles...one of the most shocking (in the best way possible) remaster jobs I've ever heard...now I REALLY need the rest of the remastered catalogue ASAP...I have "The Albums 1967 to 1968" and "Odessa", now this...WOW!!! Oh yeah, the DVD is fun to watch, the packaging is not cheesy AT ALL...the discs are well-protected and secure...the notes are well-written, and the pics are nice...my two complaints are on the edits of "For Whom The Bell Tolls" and "Secret Love", cuz they are a bit short, but they could be UK 7" single versions...yet the edit on FWTBT was much more jarring on "The Greatest Hits: The Record"...also, while the first disc is nicely filled up...78 minutes & change...the second disc tops out at 68 minutes and end with a short 3-song live medley of songs that others covered...Read more ›

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For having so many greatest hits packages, the first question is why another? 2009 is the 50th Anniversary of the Bee Gees and the first time they announced that they would, after all, reunite as the Bee Gees. When Maurice Gibb passed away in 2003, it was declared the Bee Gees were over and Barry and Robin went their separate ways. This is a celebration.

The nicest surprise is that fans are now given an official video disc of 18 of the Bee Gees more popular songs. "Spicks & Specks" is the original grainy black and white version, but "New York Mining Disaster 1941" is a rare clip, interspersing montages of children and coal miners which is a more direct reference to the lyrics. "Tomorrow, Tomorrow" represents the year the Bee Gees temporarily lost Robin but is a great song from their TV special "Cucumber Castle" and a nice addition even if a bit fuzzy. "For Whom The Bell Tolls" is one of their under appreciated gems and this video is one of their best (I miss "When He's Gone" as a video). "Still Waters Run Deep" is a rare video in that it is the single version of the song with an electronic harpsichord (not the album version). However, the most professional video has to be "Alone" with its images over the years spliced into the song.

The sound is far superior to all previous releases (other than the videos), including Tales from the Brothers Gibb and The Bee Gees - Their Greatest Hits: The Record. Everything has been remastered to sound better than all previously releases. It appears that `most' of the songs chosen were all in the Top Twenty either in the USA or the UK.

Format: Audio CD
Compiling a greatest hits compilation for one of the most successful bands of all time can be a little challenging since The Bee Gees have had hits all over the world, many times in some countries and not in others, so choosing the biggest and best hits will ultimately leave a few by the wayside. But "The Ultimate Bee Gees" pretty much covers all of their biggest hits in a neatly packaged two-disc set. In contrast to 2001's The Bee Gees - Their Greatest Hits: The Record which was presented in chronological order, this collection starts off with 1976's "You Should Be Dancing" and continues with their big 70's hits and progresses into the 80's and 90's hits. It's not until disc two where we hear late 60's hits like "I Started A Joke" and "To Love Somebody". It's on disc two where the compilers of this collection (the Gibb brothers?) have chosen to include mono mixes of "Words", "I've Gotta Get A Message To You", "New York Mining Disaster 1941", "Massachusetts" and "World". Though these are the original mono single mixes (also available on The Studio Albums 1967-1968), proper stereo mixes for all these songs were made in 1990 for the Tales from the Brothers Gibb box set and would better suit this collection than the mono versions. Aside from that, the packaging includes liner notes by Sir Tim Rice with detailed track information as well as photos of the group from each decade.
The Bonus DVD is the real treat here. There are 18 video clips included, from original promotional films to live performances to modern videos. One real oddity is the raw alternate studio version of "Lonely Days" used for the promo clip. Highly recommended!

I really did like the videos. I especially enjoyed Spicks and Specks, never seen that one before. I haven't heard the cd's yet since I already own it from previous packages.The main reason I bought this was because of the dvd, and they were really cool.

Same old retread songs in a different package
I'm buying it only because of the vidoes which I always wanted, but never had the opportunity to see until now.

I know what you mean. I hope they kept releasing their old studio albums from the early 70's on instead of another greatest hits package.
