Editorial Reviews

Reprise/Warner/Rhino presents 50 St. Catherine's Drive, the last solo album by the legendary songwriter, performer and founding Bee Gee, Robin Gibb, who died in May 2012. The album was compiled by his wife Dwina Gibb and son RJ Gibb, and includes most of the tracks originally recorded for the album, plus the last tracks written and recorded by Robin Gibb.

Named 50 St. Catherine's Drive the address of the house where Robin was born in Douglas on the Isle of Man the 17-track album is a reflective, sometimes autobiographical collection of songs mainly recorded between 2006 and 2008, but never released. With the addition of some of the final recordings by Robin Gibb, the album is a unique insight into the genius songwriting talent of this much-loved and greatly missed globally renowned musician. The album also includes three tracks co-written with his son RJ Gibb, and was produced by Peter-John Vettese.

The final track on the album, "Sydney," is also the very last track recorded by Robin. As a demo recording, it is not as produced as the other tracks on the album, and Robin's wife, Dwina Gibb, explains the inclusion of the track:

"Robin composed this late at night, end of July 2011, at our home, The Prebendal. He used the bedroom keyboards and then GarageBand on an iPad. He wished to finish this song in a studio with Barry, for a new album he hoped they would record together, but his health prevented this. He missed his twin brother Maurice, who had passed away; but when he closed his eyes, the three young brothers were back in Sydney, Australia, happy together with their dreams and hopes for the future. Their future creations of course affected the world. This fragment of song is poignant, wistful, beautiful and unfinished. It belongs on this album as one of his last works. He cried when he wrote it, and I wept when I heard it."

Having been a fan of Robin Gibb for more than 40 years, I've been anticipating the release of 50 St. Catherine's Drive for the last two years when Robin left us. Unlike Robin's previous release Magnet, all songs are written or co-written by him and the emotion with which he sings is all his. Robin wrote what he lived, and the last nine years of Robin's life were filled with the pain of losing his twin Maurice, and you can hear that pain. For me, this album is like a peek into his soul and all the things he went through in his personal life in the last decade.. This is Robin all grown up, and it's brilliant. The voice I've loved all these years is there, but here there's something more, something intimate. The song Sydney is a demo that he planned on recording with brother Barry, sadly his illness prevented that. His wife Dwina said when Robin wrote that song he cried, and when she heard it she wept. It is a treasure about being back in Sydney with his brothers, and it's raw emotion from a man longing for days gone by as he sings "The battle's won now, the price was high and you're still here in my minds eye. I close my eyes, I'm back in Sydney, my brothers are with me, my brothers and I". Beautiful and heartbreaking. So Robin, you are so loved and so missed, but I will close my eyes and think of you, not gone, but back in Sydney with your brothers. Maybe then it won't hurt so much..

A big THANK YOU to Dwina for making sure this happened!

Over two years after Robin Gibb passed away, his last solo album is released with some songs nearly ten years old. These were written between the years of 2004-2008 with the hope of using some as part of a Bee Gees reunion with Barry. That was not to be.

The listener does get treated to an array of some of Robin Gibb's best music to date. It's much more upbeat in style and verse than previous Gibb compositions and the result is wonderful. Relying mostly on electronic equipment, it's tough to tell that most of the instruments are electronic. Robin's voice is more reedy than usual with a higher pitch, but that only tends to pulls the listener in closer. This is Robin Gibb at his most vulnerable and intimate self.

With a hefty dose of seventeen songs, Robin Gibb concentrates on layered songs backed with a strong beats. In fact, only two songs, 'Solid' and 'All We Have Is Now' are the only slower ballads and they stand up to any previous Gibb tearjerker. One of the standout cuts that are worthy of single treatment are 'Alan Freeman Days' with its excitable exclamatory proclamations. 'I Am The World' is a remix of the 1966 B-Side vocal and it's a layered composition that stands up to modern tastes and styles. 'Broken Wings' contains a danceable beat that begs for an extended version, if not a single release. The instrumental sections and backing vocals are synthesized genius. 'Avalanche', a title taken from a 1970 song is an anthemic upbeat journey of a song with powerful backing vocals.

'Mother Of Love' is presented in its original form and is a nice respite from the bevy of strong songs, but what it lacks in structure, it makes up in pure emotion. 'Don't Cry Alone' is a wonderful reminder of Robin and RJ Gibb's classical hybrid, Titanic Requiem'.

This is a most incredible album and I'll never tire of listening to Robin's voice. The album is full of his songs from his heart and I love all of them. I was always a huge fan of Robin and the Bee Gees and I was fortunate enough to get to Barry's Mythology Tour in Boston, which was a celebration of the wonderful years of music by the Bee Gees. It was hard to see him alone but he changed up the songs that were Robin's and brought Robin to life on the big screen for "I Started a Joke". Now I am more than thrilled listening to all of these beautiful songs by Robin.
His voice and his songs are definitely telling of how Robin felt. No one can ever duplicate the ethereal voice of Robin Gibb and I love this album!

I've been eagerly awaiting today's release of Robin's 50 St. Catherine's Drive! I want to thank everyone responsible for completing this cd and presenting it to the world. It's hard to put into words how it feels to hear new songs from Robin. It hurts to know that he is no longer with us, but sharing his music is such a gift. I love what I'm hearing! I've listened to "Don't Cry Alone" so many, many times since it's release on the "Titanic Requiem," but hearing it today on Robin's new cd put a lump in my throat & it was hard not to cry as it makes me miss him. When he was sick & when he died, I felt as if I had lost someone that I knew even though I never had the privilege of meeting him. I wholeheartedly recommend this cd to Robin's and The Bee Gees' fans. I only hope there will be more in store. R.I.P., Robin.

Getting a new album from Robin feels like a gift from God. Every song on here is wonderful--one hauntingly beautiful song after another. I already had "Don't Cry Alone" and bought a CD from Germany to get "Mother of Love", but had never before heard any of the others. What a treat for every Robin Gibb and Bee Gees fan--a new album with 17 gorgeous songs! I can't stop listening to this album, especially "Anniversary" and "Sanctuary"!
