Special treats include the first released Bee Gees version of "(Our Love) Don't Throw It All Away" and the country flavored "Rest Your Love On Me", a Top 40 country hit.
This was the Bee Gees third #1 album in a row and is a great five year feat.
UPDATE: This 2007 reissue contains six (6) new songs that make it even more valuable as a collection of the Bee Gees Greatest hits. "Warm Ride" is a great falsetto driven rocker that was given to Andy Gibb. There is an extended version of, "Stayin' Alive" with a great horn section. The remixes of "You Should Be Dancing", If I Can't Have You", "Night Fever" and "How deep Is Your Love" are all welcome additons.
The new remixed versions of "Stayin' Alive", "Night Fever", "How Deep Is Your Love" and "If I Can't Have You" make this the ultimate collection of classic songs from the late seventies. The Bee Gees really did influence dance music during this period.
P.S. To the Amazon Editor: "Too Much Heaven" and "Love You Inside Out" were top singles and 'not bland'. Go wash your mouth out.
With all that in its favor, I had to take away a point for this collection for the combined drawback of missing tracks and for some lousy packaging. Any "greatest" collection of any artist is going to come up short, but 26 tracks hardly scratches the surface when you consider that many of these are remixes. The emphasis here is the '70s Bee Gees which is fine (great, really), but you'll need to buy several more CDs worth of material to get a taste of the '60s era and any hidden gems from the later period.
The CD package looks really nice, but those cardboard sleeves make you fight to remove the CD itself thus creating fingerprints, scratches, etc. What's worse, disc 2 in my set was jammed in there so tightly that when I finally wrestled it free, it was smattered with glue from the packaging process.
While it only focuses on the 1970s disco/R&B era of the Bee Gees, "Greatest" captures the trio at their peak.
What makes this really worth purchasing are the bonus tracks. A rare promo version of "Stayin' Alive" will undoubtedly be the draw here, since it's a rarity on CD. The revamped, remixed versions of "You Should Be Dancing", "If I Can't Have You", "Night Fever" and "How Deep is Your Love" don't stray too far from the originals but are updated enough to give them a more contemporary feel.
Relive the Bee Gees' most popular era with this excellent release.
but, when I heard that Robin was so very ill, I knew I had to get it now while
it was still available.
The music is terrifc. Songs such as How Deep is Your Love, Jive Talkin and
of course Nights on Broadway bring back such terrific memories.
This is a must have for people who love classic and timeless ageless music.
