One Night Only

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
On November 14, 1997, the Bee Gees reunited for a concert at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This was the Gibb brothers' first show in ten years, and the concert sold out in a hurry. The burning question was whether or not the chemistry would still be there, and thankfully, it was. After being aired on HBO on Valentine's Day 1998, the Vegas performance found its way onto CD when One Night Only was released in the fall of 1998. The Bee Gees generally sound inspired during their performance, which ranges from gems from their late-'70s disco period including "Stayin' Alive," "You Should Be Dancin'," "Nights on Broadway," and "Tragedy" to early hits like "New York Mining ...

While their band could have been a lot grittier and less precise and clean-sounding -- especially on the funkier material -- the Bee Gees distinctive vocals aren't anything to complain about. Although not perfect, One Night Only is a release that Bee Gees enthusiasts will definitely want.

    A good ''Greatest Hits Live'' compilation

    This album is probably as good as any compilation of studio recordings because it creates a perfect equilibrium between the disco and non-disco material. Even the first song is a medley of the disco ''You Should be Dancing'' and the ballad ''Alone''. Most of the hits are here, from the early ''To Love Somebody'' to ''Lonely Days'', ''Jive Talkin''', ''How Deep is Your Love'' and of course ''Stayin' Alive''. Even the reletively recent ''Islands in the Stream'' is included. The only hit missing is ''I've Got to Get a Message to You'', although that song is included on the accompanying video. The arrangements are rather identical to the origionals, but there is still a rich, full sound and the vocals are in top form. There isn't much on here for owners of the studio versions, but it makes an excellent intro to the band for anyone who is just mildly curious. Highlights include ''Lonely Days'', ''Heartbreaker'', ''I Can't See Nobody'' and the underrated ''Tragedy'', one of the band's finest disco-era songs. So, even if you are ashamed to buy an album by a band famous for disco, there's plenty for you here. (Come on, secretly you can't help tapping your foot every time you hear ''Jive Talkin'''; you just won't admit it).
