5.0 out of 5 stars The Debut Album!, January 27, 2007
This review is from: Bee Gees' 1st (Audio CD)
Wrapped in a snug fold-out digipak, this Rhino re-issue of Bee Gees First is a wonder to behold. Being the first international album by the three brothers, Rhino has beautifully remastered the original into one CD that has all the original fourteen songs in Stereo and Mono. These are different sounding recordings and not simply Stereo condensed into Mono. Classics like, "To Love Somebody", "Holiday" and their first big hit "New York Mining Disaster 1941" are given new life. In fact, the latter song has four different versions included here.

Disc 2 contains fantastic Alternate Versions and preciously unreleased material. Compare Barry's lead vocal of "One Minute woman" to Robin's take. Or compare the orchestral and instrumental differences between originals and Alternate Takes of "I Close My Eyes" and Turn Of The Century". It must have been a tough decision to make regarding songs choices. The Bee Gees show a remarkable sense of humor with "Mr. Wallor's Wailing Wall" and Beatle-esque perfection with "Gilbert Green" and "House Of Lords". With 42 songs and a running time of well over 100 minutes, this is a long awaited release. This album made it to #7 on the Billboard charts in 1967! Also includes a colorful booklet packed with trivia, history, album and single photos as well as comments from Barry and Robin Gibb.
