Morning of My Life: Best of 1965-1966

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Fred Thomas
Before their work on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack made the Bee Gees disco stars, their mid-'60s material found the Gibb brothers already a few years into what would be an astonishingly long and successful career and working on more baroque, Beatlesque radio pop. While international fame met the Bee Gees with their somewhat mistitled 1967 album Bee Gees' 1st, the brothers had actually already recorded multiple records that only ever saw release in Australia for the Festival label.

All Music Guide - Fred Thomas
Before their work on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack made the Bee Gees disco stars, their mid-'60s material found the Gibb brothers already a few years into what would be an astonishingly long and successful career and working on more baroque, Beatlesque radio pop. While international fame met the Bee Gees with their somewhat mistitled 1967 album Bee Gees' 1st, the brothers had actually already recorded multiple records that only ever saw release in Australia for the Festival label. Morning of My Life: Best of 1965-1966 collects 24 standout tracks from early Festival recordings, none of which made it too far out of Australia. These early compositions find the band ranging from gentle folk-tinged numbers like "Butterfly" and "In the Morning (Of My Life)" to garage rockers like "I Want Home." For completists, Festival Album Collection: 1965-1967 repackages these early lost pop platters in their entirety, including all the songs from The Bee Gees Sing & Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs, Spicks and Specks, and Turn Around Look at Us.
