5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Recording Remastered! December 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This CD was released approximately the same time as the four disc box set, but only in Europe. It covers the years of 1967 to 1979 with only the major hits. It's a nice greatest hits CD if you don't want to be bothered with the extraneous minor hits and album cuts of the Box Set. It was already well mixed at the first printing - but this remastered version is amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Man's Version Of The Box Set August 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD was released approximately the same time as the four disc box set, but only in Europe. It covers the years of 1967 to 1979 with only the major hits. It's a nice greatest hits CD if you don't want to be bothered with the extraneous minor hits and album cuts of the Box Set. Nicely remixed as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars All of their greatest hits! (except for 3 songs.) August 17, 2002
By duke14
Format:Audio CD
I don't mean three songs on the cd. I mean three songs that are missing. I Started A Joke, Lonely Days, and How Can You Mend A Broken Heart are very surprisingly missing. But the rest are the BeeGees most greatest and most successful songs up to date. If you don't want to buy an album just for 2 or 3 hits, buy The Very Best of The BeeGees. My favorite songs in here are Nights on Broadway, Tragedy, and Too Much Heaven. I'm sure you'll love them, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me elaborate... March 26, 2003
By Jeff
Format:Audio CD
Let me just say that a little more than a quarter of these exhalted songs have been upgraded to a more qualified sound. This album covers basically the Bee Gees best of the best to their first-shots that led them into glory.
Yes, maybe there may have been a few hits left out, but I'll assure you that this valuable Bee Gees cd cannot be surpassed because of its quality. Songs like Words, World, Massachusetts, NY Mining Disastar 1941, I've Just Gotta Get A Message To You, and a couple others have been thoroughly upgraded with better sound and absolutely no glitches.
Also, a couple of, now and only imported, songs like You Win Again and Ordinary Lives have been added to the masterful complilation to get an idea of the 80s style music of the Bee Gees.
This is truly the cd to get to hear the amazing upgraded Bee Gees compliation of hits that cannot be missed by the die-hard Bee Gees fan!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Is Missing February 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The opportunity for a killer single disc Bee Gees greatest hits collection has somehow been missed. Other collections focus only on the early (pre disco) period or only the disco period. "1's" misses too many great hits. Only "The Record" has everything, but it's two discs.

This could have been the elusive single disc that collects the very cream of the crop, but it isn't. I can understand one or even two omissions, but consider the songs omitted here: Holiday, I Started A Joke, Lonely Days, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, My World, Fanny, Love So Right, Love You Inside Out. That's an omission of eight of their biggest hits. Most of these were Billboard Top Tens. Instead we get "hits" that didn't crack the Billboard top 40 (except one at # 37) like World, First Of May, Don't Forget To Remember, Saved By The Bell, You Win Again, and Ordinary Lives. If those titles don't ring a bell, trust me, you won't recognize them when you play the CD either.

By replacing the major hits that were omitted with the minor (or non) hits that were included, this really would have been "The Very Best Of The Bee Gees". Since no such single disc collection exists yet, this isn't bad, there's still a lot of good stuff. But if you want all of the big hits, you're only option currently is to spring for the double disc "The Record".

5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly the sixties and seventies May 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Bee Gees began in the sixties and continued making music into the new millennium. Along the way, they had many hits of their own but also (as songwriters) provided plenty of hits for others. This set chronicles their own hits from the sixties to the nineties. It cannot be as comprehensive as the more recent double-CD (Record - Their greatest hits) but it is different from the even more recent compilation of number ones.

The first ten tracks cover their folk-pop period of the sixties and early seventies. Their impact on the American charts in this period was somewhat patchy, but most of these reached the UK top ten, while Massachusetts and I've gotta get a message to you both topped the British charts. My favorites from this period are Don't forget to remember and First of May. Saved by the bell was a Robin Gibb solo. To love somebody was a huge UK hit for Nina Simone as well as being a minor UK hit for the Bee Gees. In some other countries, the Bee Gee Gees had a much bigger hit with their own version of the song. Apparently, they originally offered the song to Otis Redding but he chose not to record it.

The public lost interest in the Bee Gees after a few years, so they got into disco music and this made them bigger UK stars than they had been before, while making them huge stars in America. My favorite tracks from this period (represented by the next nine tracks) are How deep is your love and Too much heaven, while Staying alive, Night fever and Tragedy were also major international hits.

Only two other tracks are included here. The first, You win again, gave them a UK number one hit in 1987. And yes, it is an original song, not to be confused with the similarly titled Hank Williams classic.
