4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked Masterpiece 28 Jan 2013
By Nigel
How this album was overlooked around the world and not even released in America has always amazed me. It dates from 1988 when the Bee Gees were taking a little break as a band and producing music for themselves as soloists, and other artists including Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross and Kenny Rogers.

Apparently this was destined to be Barry's second solo album, but ended up coming out as the soundtrack for a B grade movie called 'Hawks' - hence the title, and the inclusion of an excellent instrumental with some beautiful electric guitar 'Celebration De La Vie' and the Diana Ross hit 'Chain Reaction' - both Bee Gee compositions.

Barry is a great vocalist, and an even better songwriter. His range in both fields is very apparent here, and to add a further dimension its a long way from the Bee Gees style. The beautifully wistful ballads - 'Childhood Days', 'My Eternal Love', 'Not In Love At All', 'Moonlight Madness' and the superb 'Letting Go' contrast well with the more raunchy 'System of Love' and 'Where Tomorrow Is'.

If you are a Barry Gibb or Bee Gees fan, its really worth trying to seek out a copy of Barry's work.I don't think that Barry has ever written a bad song.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Under-rated Effort! 25 Jun 2014
By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Written and recorded during one of Barry Gibb's most productive periods, this soundtrack should have been a huge seller. There is no doubt that "Childhood Days" is a well crafted pop single that brings out the best of Barry Gibb and his songwriting skills. Equally good are the other three songs, "Moonlight Madness". "Where Tomorrow Is" and "Cover You". All bear the funky bouncy groove that Gibb developed in the mid-eighties that unfortunately went virtually unnoticed. It is short-shrift for a great album.

From the heavy guitar riff of "System Of Love" (thanks to long time Bee Gees guitarist, Alan Kendall) to the slow, sentimental ballad that is "Letting Go" (Gibb stated that this was one of the best songs he had written to date). "My Eternal Love" and "Not In Love At All" display catchy verses and typically Gibb-like sensibilities. It is also rare to have an instrumental on a Gibb album, so great thanks for, "Celebration De La Vie - Theme From Hawks". The real big hit here was "Chain Reaction" sung by Diana Ross with Gibb backing vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big hit featuring Diana Ross included! 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase
All Bee Gees albums deserves 5 stars. This is worth getting if you are a fan and a few of the song are written by all three Gibb brothers.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Little Jewel 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase
"Hawks" is the soundtrack album for the film Hawks: all of the songs performed by British singer-songwriter Barry Gibb, a legendary leader of Bee Gees.
All of the songs were written and recorded by Barry. A small gem unknown to most people (as well as the film) with various instrumental tracks "Celebration De La Vie" and some fantastic songs atmosphere like "Childhood days".
A Little Jewel to Discover.
