I have been listening to G4's latest album for the last couple of weeks and love both these songs (but especially When A Child Is Born). I am thrilled they are releasing them as a single, but am especially impresed with how much is on this release, not only the 2 singles but a live version of First Of May, plus videos for both tracks. However, I am most looking forward to hearing their version of Don't Dream It's Over by the amazing Crowded House, as this song was left off the album, so all in all I am counting down the days!

This is a lovely Christmas offering from the G4 boys which will have appeal well into the new year with it's videos and collaboration with Robin Gibb. It FAR surpasses any of the other festive froth in the charts.
There is also a bonus track of 'Don't dream it's over' which is another of their surprising covers - a gorgeous musical arrangement. Brilliant stocking filler!

Robin Gibb singing a Barry Gibb song is so strange; I don't know what to make of it! Forget the song - it's mediocre here. The videos are simply stoic as well. The best thing about this single is the cover of "Don't Dream Its Over", which sounds like some serious effort was put into it. That alone is worth the single and you are hearing this from a HUGE Bee Gees fan.

HASH(0x9a5abb88) out of 5 stars If you like Bee Gees Harmony, you must like this one 2 Feb. 2006
By Kay - Published on Amazon.com
If you expected a return of same old Barry's First of May, you might have been disappointed. This is a fresh new take by Robin and G4. G stands for Guildhall School of Music in UK (prestigious music college which produced many world famous classic singers). After all, what is the point of having the same First of May, which you could have listened on vinyl? If you open your heart and listen to it without any preconceptions, you would appreciate it. 30 odd years after I first enjoyed beautiful harmony of Bee Gees, I am captivated by the beautiful harmony of G4. As you can see on this CD, G4 always perform live and arrange songs into 4 parts harmony by themselves. Dream It's Over is fabulous. When A Child Is Born video makes you smile.

HASH(0x9a547090) out of 5 stars Dont Dream its over makes this single! 31 Jan. 2006
By Melody - Published on Amazon.com
The bonus song Dont Dream it's Over makes this single and it's worth buying for that alone. G4 have used their "classically trained voices" to do what they do best - take a great pop song and put their stamp on it. The live version of The First of May taken from G4's Tour is very well performed. Again G4 (in particular Jon Ansell) sing this song beautifully with great power and complement Robin Gibbs lovely quirky voice. The video for When A child is born is quite charming and the harmonies from G4 throughout are beautiful. An all round good single and well worth buying in my book!

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Okay, first off, I have been a Bee Gees fan for years and I say my favorite song in the world is First Of May, no matter who's singing it. Secondly, I understand it's a matter of opinion, but Robin Gibb was always my favorite. I saw some of the reviews here, and all I have to say is how DARE you speak of this undescribably gifted singer in such a way! To heck w/ G4, Robin Gibb is the main reason to buy this album, Bee Gees fan or not! Definitely worth buying!
HASH(0x9a5476b4) out of 5 stars A Rare Single 18 Jan. 2006

I don't know what G4 stands for, but there are some funny guesses. They are not the problem. Robin Gibb singing a Barry Gibb song is so strange; I don't know what to make of it! However, since Robin's passing, the song just seems that more bittersweet. The best thing about this single is the cover of "Don't Dream Its Over", which sounds like some serious effort was put into it. That alone is worth the single and you are hearing this from a HUGE Bee Gees fan.

By Bart Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Robin Gibb and G4 make a beautiful combination on First Of May. The other tracks are great as well, with Don't Dream Its Over, being a great song!
