Eagle Vision s new SD Blu-ray range presents upscaled standard definition original material with uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound for the best possible quality. Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb were performing together from childhood but it was in Australia in 1960 that they were first billed as the Bee Gees. The band went on to become one of the most successful performing, recording and songwriting acts of all time. This full length concert was shot at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on 14 November 1997 and is one of very few Bee Gees performances ever filmed. Now for the first time it has been fully restored with remastered sound and will be released on a Blu-ray disc as the first of Eagle Vision s new SD Blu-ray range.

Taped as a lavish cable television special in 1997, One Night Only trades on the Bee Gees' shape-shifting career as pop survivors. Over the course of 111 minutes, this straightforward concert, produced at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and groomed for both video and CD posterity, sprints through 31 songs from their past three decades. Even after the inevitable disco jokes are expended, and the jaundiced viewer contemplates the role hats, hairspray, and comb-overs now play in dressing the once stylishly long-haired troika, the Gibb brothers' signature vocal harmonies and hook-laden song craft beg respect.
Casual listeners can't be blamed for equating the Bee Gees with the dance floor bonanza they reaped through 1978's Saturday Night Fever, yet that commercial zenith was actually the culmination of a comeback for a group that had seemed washed up by the early 1970s. One Night Only thankfully takes an even-handed view of both their original late 1960s hits ("Massachusetts", "To Love Somebody", "Lonely Days"), building from a cannily Beatle-browed vocal sound, and the 1970s blue-eyed soul ("Jive Talkin'", "Nights on Broadway") that led them naturally into disco. The Fever hits are here, as are Gibb originals that clicked for other acts; the family circle also widens for a posthumous duet with their late brother, Andy Gibb, while Celine Dion gets star billing in the collaborative "Immortality". --Sam Sutherland --This text refers to the DVD edition.

1997 was an amazing year for the Bee Gees, with inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, plus Lifetime Achievement Awards from the British, American and World Music Awards, the the Australian record industry, and the German Bambi Awards topped off by a “One Night Only” concert at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, their only live concert in 1997 and first US concert in nearly 10 years.
Most of you, including myself, have purchased “One Night Only” DVD released in 1997. Now Eagle Rock Entertainment has upconverted this concert to high definition. The burning question is “should I double dip?” I have compared the HD and SD versions. Hopefully, after you have finished reading my review, you will come to the same conclusion as I have. Let’s read on…
HD vs. SD:
SIZE DOES MATTER:
The most important and obvious upgrade is that the blu ray version is widescreen, whereas the standard version was 1.33:1. Here, what a difference this makes to bring joy to my heart to watch this concert the way it was originally recorded.
The blu ray version arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080i 1.78:1 encode. Although the overall picture is on the soft side, nevertheless, the HD video is far superior than the SD video. In my home theatre, I have a McIntosh MP 1000 video processor that will convert any video to 1080p. In my comparison, I find that there are more details in the blu ray version, where you can distinguish different hair strands on Barry’s hair and beard on Barry and Maurice’s faces. The colour is more subdued in both cases, but the green colour on Barry’s guitar is boosted in the high definition version. Skin tones are spot on. It is amazing you can hardly find any wrinkles on Barry’s face.Read more ›
