Overview

Their Greatest Hits: The Record stands as the best Bee Gees hits package available, assembling both vital European and American hits from their early-'60s period all the way through to 2001. Disc one includes their major '60s and early-'70s hits, up to "You Should Be Dancing." Included are their major American hits, such as "New York Mining Disaster 1941," "Massachusetts," "To Love Somebody," "Lonely Days," "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart," "Jive Talkin'," "Nights on Broadway," and "Words," as well as major European hits, such as "World" and the gorgeous "Don't Forget to Remember." Also included on disc one is the former B-side "If I Can't Have You" (popularized, of course, by Yvonne Elliman). Disc two continues the formula, beginning with the cultural phenomenon that was "Stayin' Alive" and continuing with "How Deep Is Your Love," "Night Fever," "Too Much Heaven," "Tragedy," and "Love You Inside and Out." Disc two also includes Barry Gibb's hit duet with Barbra Streisand, "Guilty," as well as major European hits such as "You Win Again" and "For Whom the Bell Tolls," and later American hits such as "One," "Alone," and their superb 2001 single "This Is Where I Came In." As a bonus treat, the album includes four newly recorded versions of Bee Gees songs which became hits for other artists. These include "Emotion," which was popularized by Samantha Sang and later Destiny's Child; "Heartbreaker," which was a comeback smash for Dionne Warwick; the chart-topping "Islands in the Stream," which was a hit for Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton; and "Immortality," a European hit for Celine Dion. A wonderful, stellar collection through and through from one of the rock era's biggest, brightest, most influential, and most exciting acts. As a final note, the European version of this collection includes two songs which were annoyingly left off the American version: "Jumbo" and "My World."

The Bee Gees are one of most important musical groups of our era. Their great compositions reflect five generations of beautiful ballads,soft and funky rock. They got a whole generation back on the dance floor. This complilation is truly a must for any music lover.

I grew up in 1970's and 1980's these guy were superstars here in the U.S.. Many great cuts on two compact disc for a grand total of 40. Too bad there four re-records. The re-records are from songs that other people who recorded their songs originally. Some of those song spawned their comebacks in thier own right. There are a lot of great memories from these songs. The Brothers Gibb was one of the greatest acts in music.

Throughout history we've dazzled over great musicians, The Bee Gees are no exception! They've constantly kept our ''Nights on Broadway'' full of ''Night Fever''. During this ''Holiday'' season, ''Don't Forget to Remember'' to get this album! Cause ''I've Got a Message to Get to You'', should you not have this in your collection, it would be a ''Tragedy'' feeling ''Alone'' without it!

This is great for Bee Gees songs but after a tremendous beginning, with the old ballads remastered sounding great, a lot of the later tracks are not the actual hit version but re-recordings (that might not have been such big hits in this form), so if you are hoping to hear the original hits, you're going to feel cheated.

What a great CD. All their best in one collection. Who can ask for more. This sure beats anything else out there right now.

When reviewing the Brothers Gibb, one must remember their influences, and pay homage to those musical prophets who paved the way before them. The brothers listened to American Blues music, and Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, The Beach Boys, the many "girl" groups, and mixed that with their parents love of big band, and ballroom dance music. When they heard what The Beatles were doing with similar musical roots, the boys relocated from Australia to England and began to create their own sound. Their harmonies are sometimes gospel-like in purity and beauty. Other times they reflect the soulful roots of American blues, and Motown. This compilation is one of the best places for fans and "newbies" to rock history to invest in a lesson in what constitutes a legendary rock group. Don't buy into the "disco-sucks" elitist lunacy of heavy metal/rock and roll dead heads who prove how musically challenged they are by their musical snobbishness. Bee Gees music demonstrates the wide spectrum that is popular music. It can rock, make you blue, induce you to dance, stimulate pleasant childhood memories, and entertain you. Its lasting value is found in the toe taping senior citizens, who preceeded rock music and may, or may not know who the Bee Gees are, but who hum along to Bee Gee songs. In concert, Brothers Gibb look out over generations of fans: moms and dads, children, teens and grandparents. And they all have one thing in common. The love of GREAT MUSIC. Long after rap and hip-hop are thrown into the dust-bin of musical history, Bee Gees music will continue to be played and enjoyed. Their Greatest Hits: The Record collection is music history!

Not only does this 2 CD set contain some of the best music of the past 5 decades, it also has the added bonus of 4 songs recorded by other artists and now given new life by their creators. All 4 of the ''new'' songs are fantastically done, but ''Islands In The Stream'' goes even beyond that!!! I can't wait for Volume 2!!!

"Their Greatest Hits: The Record" by the ever-so-popular Bee Gees is a terrific must-have album for all Bee Gees fans. I can honestly say that I cannot think of any negativities on this collection. That is why I am giving this album five stars. It is great that the album was compiled with a delux booklet including linear notes, photos, essays, and other interesting facts. Spreading a total of fourty songs, each song has been digitally remastered for the best sound quality possible. I can honostley say that these songs were well chosen. All songs are greatest hits in which the listener will deeply enjoy. I highly recommend this album for any Bee Gees fan. Also, be sure to pick up a copy of Robin Gibb's solo album "Magnet", scheduled to be released in early 2003.

I Love The New Bee Gees Greatest Hits The Record I Was Nice Listening To Songs On There That I Don't Have On My Others CDS The Bee Gees Did Great Again.
Guest More than 1 year ago
These days, we're finally getting much-needed improved 'best-of's and 'greatest hits' sets from acts that have been around quite some time, and whose albums may have spanned several record labels. 'The Record' is as fine a comprehensive career-spanning 'best of' you could want from Barry, the late Maurice, and Robin Gibb. Finally, a set that has both "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart", "To Love Somebody" and "I Started a Joke" and "Stayin' Alive", "Jive Talkin'" and "You Should Be Dancing" and a whole lot more. The Bee Gees early albums (such as 'Odessa' and 'Idea') are seriously overlooked by fans who think that all they did was record radio-ready hits. But if it's Bee Gees hits you want, from their early days to their disco days and afterwards, this is the album for you - it's their '40 Licks' if you will (the Rolling Stones' equivalent of 'The Record)

Throughout the decades the Brothers Gibb have proven to be one of the greatest staying powers in the music business. This new compilation summarizes their achievements and includes their greatest hits from all the phases that their extraordinary career has been through. From the swinging 60's (Holiday, To Love Somebody, I Started a Joke) to the Groovy 70's (Staying Alive, Tragedy¿) not forgetting the synthesized 80's(One, You Win Again) and their recently adopted mature sound (Alone, This is where I Came in). Fan or not this is THE RECORD for you¿indispensable.

What more can one say? For a group that has constantly reinvented inself to stay relevant, the Bee Gees are definitely the Greatest Group ever in pop/rock history. Every song on this album is not only classics that made them such enduring legends, but also greatest for other artistes - Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Dionne Warwick, Kenny Rogers....the list goes on. Perhaps the only complaint one can pick (if one really have to) on this album is that there are still many of their big hits that simply cannot fit in to a 2-CD format. Fans from different generations will find some of their own favourites missing here. And with so many other cover hits not being released by the Gibbs themselves, perhaps Volume 2 of this album should be one on songs written for others - Only One Woman, Ain't Nothing's Gonna Keep Me From You, Grease, Chain Reaction, Heart, Help Me, and the list goes on. 40 hits in one album may be too much of a good thing for some, but definitely there's room for more great hits by the greatest group in the world.
