This is a perplexing combination of "best of" songs. Although not as strong in content as Volume 1, it surpasses that by having several mega-hits involved. Although "Man For All Season", "Melody Fair" and "Let There Be Love" are great songs culled from the 60's, there are some better songs missing. "Wouldn't I Be Someone" is not here, despite a 78 minute capability. Cult classic "Marley Purt Drive" was perported to be on this album when it was first released (along with "Jumbo"), but never made it! Still, there are some under-appreciated gems like "Alive" and "Morning of My Life" listed here. If "Saturday Night Fever" had not happened, can you imagine what songs would have been on Volume 3?

Like many of the other reviewers you always know that Bee Gees music is always quality. With this second Greatest hits if it was a choice of one or the other it would be the first for me. However it isn`t that simple because there are some outstanding tracks on this collection. This gives an insight into the problems that the brothers were having at that early seventies period. The fall outs and also which musical direction to take. Eventually by 1975 the latter was resolved when Jive Talking gave them a big comeback. On this collection they had fleeting moments of class with Don`t forget to remember me, Run to me and My World while Robin on his solo period had a big hit with Saved By The Bell. Robin back on board and musical direction sorted the rest is history as they say. I recommend both collections if you like the Bee Gees with this collection only slightly inferior to the first.

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 27 Mar. 2004
Format: Audio CD
This compilation includes the best of their music from mid-1969 to 1972. This period started with Saved by the bell (a Robin Gibb solo) and Don't forget to remember (perhaps my favorite Bee Gees song), both of which reached number two on the UK charts. They had little success for some time after that. In 1970, I O I O scraped into the top fifty, but Lonely days did better, making the top forty. In 1971, they didn't enter the UK charts at all. 1972 was better with My world making the top twenty and Run to me making the top ten. They had never really established themselves in America with their sixties pop-folk music and the songs from this collection didn't change that.
So this album may be seen by some as the best of a bad period in the careers of the Bee Gees. In fact, there are many good songs in this collection. I particularly like Melody fair and Morning of my life. Are the songs really weaker than those on the earlier volume, or is it just that people were tired of the style and wanted something different from the Bee Gees? It is probably a bit of both.
If you enjoy the earlier Best of Bee Gees, you are likely to also enjoy this - but not quite as much.

I bought back in the eighties the LP. I bought the first CD release about ten years ago.I received today this edition from 2008 and is exactly the same. I hope it would be remastered because half of the tracks were remastered by that year in compilations and special editions.I was wrong.

All the songs are superb but this is unbelieveble.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 April 2003
Format: Audio CD
This great album demonstrates the Bee Gees’ mastery of eclectic pop and their gift for the catchy melody. Different styles are represented here: the love ballad in their 1971 hit How Can You Mend A Broken Heart and in Don’t Wanna Live Inside Myself, the choral pop song in I.O.I.O. and the superb sad harmony song in Melody Fair. The somber ballad Don’t Forget To Remember is close to country while Saved By The Bell, one of my top favourites, is perfect moody pop. In this, their early phase, they were masters of the melodic popular song and nobody could have foreseen their later incarnation as prime purveyors of urban R&B. When considering the career of the Bee Gees, one is struck by the impressive diversity of their talents. Their vocal dexterity and ability to create wonderful arrangements stand out as the centerpiece of their successful career over more than four decades. This collection may not be as strong as Best Of Volume One but it’s an amazing listening experience nonetheless and proof of just how good pop music used to be in the sixties and seventies.

I bought the LP of these tracks way back in 1973 and it was the background music for my first year at College - so it was very nostalgic to purchase this CD.
