Not to be excluded from the list of other artists that have released compilations containing only #1 songs, the Bee Gees have no problems. Although some of the hits didn't actually make #1 in the UK, some may have been #1 in several other countries, prompting it to be thankfully included here.
The song "Man in the Middle" is included as a tribute to the late Maurice Gibb. "Number Ones" features 20-tracks, adding cuts such as "More Than a Woman" and "Islands in the Stream," a 1983 No. 1 hit for Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. If you buy this early, you'll get the limited-edition CD/DVD combo which includes rare footage of the Bee Gees performing "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Jive Talkin'," "Massachusetts" and "I Started a Joke" (from the U.K. TV show "An Audience With").
In this version, "More Than A Woman" replaces the USA versions "Lonely Days" and adds the tracks, "Immortality" and "Islands In The Stream", which are the same versions that are on "The Record".

Format: Audio CD
The collection of number one hits by the Beatles was later followed by an equivalent collection by Elvis Presley. Both those collections limited themselves to British and American number ones. If the same rule had been applied to the Bee Gees, there would have been too much empty space on the CD, so the net was cast wider. They trawled the charts of Germany (World, words, More than a woman), New Zealand (I started a joke, Don't forget to remember) and Brazil (Immortality - some other Brazilian number ones have been omitted) as well as Britain and America. They had other number one hits in the Netherlands, Japan and Hong Kong but declined to use those, presumably because they had enough songs.
One song that wasn't a hit for them is Islands in the stream, the song they wrote for Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, who took it to the top of the American pop charts. On that basis, their most successful song is Woman in love - it appears to have been number one in more countries around the world than any other Bee Gees song, whoever performed by. It seems that they have not recorded their own version of the song despite there being several possibilities for gender-adapted lyrics. Of course, they couldn't compete with Barbra's version but it would be interesting to hear their version.
In the end, this compilation represents all aspects of their career although some great songs are missing from their folk-pop phase of the sixties and early seventies, First of May, To love somebody and Run to me are all omitted, along with Robin's solo Saved by the bell. However, seven tracks is a fair representation of this period on a single CD encompassing their whole career.

This CD contains great music but is rendered unfit for purpose because Reprise appears to have doctored the cd format so that it won't play on a PC. This should be unlawful. Some people only have a PC cd player and base their music system around it. Paranoid idiocy from record companies such as Reprise results in a product unfit for purpose, and anyone who finds they have bought such a cd should return it and demand a full refund. Unbelievable.

Great CD. Very good service from seller. The price and delivery first class. Would certainly buy from this seller again. Being house bound, I have to rely on purchasing on line, and I have found doing this through Amazon is so helpful. Thanks

Format: Audio CD
with recent tragic events many will want to re-remember the great
career of the 'bee-gees'
this album of course a great reflection of many of the groups best
known songs.
as a group they of course changed their style a few times keeping up
with the demands of the public at large, along with their many fans,
the trio were versatile enough to do just that, of course the most
remembered style-update was their 'disco' orientated spell bringing us
many superb and memorable numbers.
their career however spanned many more years than that golden era,
they gave us.
both 'robin' and 'barry' had much success releasing solo material as
well as the many hits as a trio.
as good as this 'CD' is, if you are a real fan of the groups many
achievements you may want something more than this, may I suggest you
have a look at the 'mythology' 4-CD collection, probably the most comprehensive
their many hits currently on offer at this time ( includes material from all
four brothers 'gibb' ).....,,.a great keepsake.
we've lost many great names in comparatively recent times, sadly 'robin' joining
brothers 'maurice' and 'andy' on that list......they left this world too soon..
'robin' a great song-writer, great vocalist...and I believe a great human being
......who's contribution to music will live forever.
