Remastered from the original analog tapes at Capitol Studios by Kevin Bartley and Ian Sefchick
On May 8, Capitol/Universal Music Enterprises is set to release five remastered LPs from the storied catalog of the Bee Gees, one of music's most legendary and acclaimed groups.
The Bee Gees' first greatest hits compilation, Best Of Bee Gees, was released in June 1969, and it features a prime selection of the early hit singles that established the group's broad musical palette. The 12 gems comprising Best Of are among the most popular songs of the then-burgeoning group's canon, including the desperately pleading "I Gotta Get A Message To You," Sir Barry's classic balladry vocal on "Words," the harmoniously soulful classic "To Love Somebody," the pure pop perfection of "Massachusetts," Robin's signature vocal on "I Started A Joke," and the skillful buildup of "Spicks and Specks," the latter song being the Bee Gees' first-ever No. 1 record in their homeland of Australia.
The Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb, one of the most successful songwriting teams of all time — have long earned their stature as one of the world's most popular and bestselling groups ever. Having recorded 22 studio albums and for numerous soundtracks, including November 1977's monumentally successful Saturday Night Fever, the Bee Gees infused popular culture with dozens of worldwide hit singles that featured their singular and highly influential three-part harmonies. They achieved nine Number Ones and 23 Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including "How Deep Is Your Love," "Night Fever," and "Stayin' Alive" from Saturday Night Fever, in addition to hitting charts around the world with many other classics, including "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart," "I Started A Joke," "Lonely Days," "Words," and "You Win Again."
