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!
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.
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.
To be fair, New York Mining Disaster was really quite good, as was Robin's take on "To Love Somebody". He really shone on HIS songs like "Saved by the Bell".
The orchestra backing was wonderful and remiscent of the Bee Gees' old pre-fever sound. The brothers should have done one with an orchestra long ago! That would have been a priceless recording for the ages!
Lastly, Robin's "thumbs up" got really old, really quick! Just bow, already! While I am glad to add this DVD to my Bee Gees collection, I was not particularly anamored with it. It had its highlights, but could have been so much better if Robin had just added more of his songs and stayed away from the falsetto tracks.
