BEE GEES - Their Greatest Hits: The Record (2001)
As any '60s pop aficionado worth his/her salt can tell you, the oft-overlooked Bee Gees were musical visionaries on a par with the Beatles, but until the 2001 arrival of this two-disc anthology, their legacy has been ill-treated. Short of buying the box set, previous hits collections made you choose between the brothers Gibb's early pop-rock period and their subsequent reincarnation as R&B/disco gods. THE RECORD, which devotes a generously proportioned disc to each of these eras, shows that the Bee Gees' work in both was equally impressive. From the quirky, death-obsessed, but endlessly melodic invention of such '60s gems as "New York Mining Disaster 1941," "I've Gotta Get a Message to You," and "I Started a Joke," to the delicious falsetto-enlivened faux Philly Soul of "Too Much Heaven" and "Fanny," to infectious dance classics "Stayin' Alive" and "Night Fever," the band stands tall. Their limitless melodic imagination, distinctive three-part harmonies, and consistency of vision mark them as one of the greatest pop outfits of the 20th century, and THEIR GREATEST HITS is far and away the definitive Bee Gees collection.
Out of print in the U.S.! Most excellent two CD set from the Brothers Gibb featuring 40 tracks that span their entire career from the '60s straight up to the millennium. Features hits like 'How Can You Mend A Broken Heart', 'Stayin' Alive', 'Jive Talkin'', 'I Started A Joke', 'You Win Again', 'Nights On Broadway' and many others. - cduniverse.com
