The Bee Gees first hit the UK top 20 in 1967 with the haunting "New York Mining Disaster", and just a few months ago they were back there again for the umpteenth time with typically hook-laden "This Is Where I Came In". In between they've sold over 110 million albums, written over 30 international number one hits and set almost every record in music possible. A double CD greatest hits almost doesn't do them justice, but it does go a fair way.
"The Record: Their Greatest Hits" has no filler which is no mean feat for double CD. Every one of the 42 tracks were big hits, some of the biggest hits of all time: Massahusettes, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, Jive Talkin', You Should Be Dancing, Night Fever, Tragedy, You Win Again. But best of all, the Gibbs have included newly recorded versions of some of the classics they wrote for other artists including Emotion (Samantha Sang, Destiny's Child), Heartbreaker (Dionne Warwick) and Islands In The Stream (Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton). Emotion in particular reminds you of what made the Bee Gees so good in the first place: incredible harmonies, unexpected lyrics, surprising chord changes and hooks, glorious hooks. This new Emotion surpasses both the original and the striking recent acoustic version by Destiny's Child. Any doubts about whether Barry's falsetto is still intact are well and truly laid to rest.
The only criticism that could be leveled at the package is "What do they need another greatest hits for?!" Well they do. Their last greatest hits package was eleven years ago and since then they've added the top 5 smashes Secret Love, For Whom The Bell Tolls, Alone and Immortality to their tally.

I don't need to tell you how good the tracks are here, you've no doubt already heard them, or have read all of the glowing reviews. One thing that none of the other reviews have pointed out (so far) is the fantastic sound. I presume that all the songs have been remastered from the originals, because the Bee Gees' songs have NEVER sounded this good before!.
As for the four new recordings included here, these are songs that the Gibb brothers previously wrote for other artists. The potential problem here, is that the "originals" are now so well known that it's almost impossible to better them. At first then, you'll (like me) probably not be too keen on these new versions. However, after a few listens they do start to grow on you. Though not improving on the originals, they're worthy alternatives. The most radcially different one is Islands in the stream (originally a hit for Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton), which now not only has the lead vocal performed by Robin Gibb (it was Barry on the "One night only" concert) but is also slower.
All in all, an amazing collection of songs from some of the best singer / song writers in pop music history. My only criticism of this greatest hits CD, is the rather drab cover!.

By Marty From SF HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Dec. 2002
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Bee Gees (Brothers Gibb) have released several compilation albums; "Best of Bee Gees Vol 1", "Vol. 2" and "Bee Gees Greatest" which were primarily period pieces. Their "Tales..." Box Set was a complete and exhaustive collection of all of their hits and B-Sides plus some rarities, but only went to 1990. This collection is the first one to address ALL of their big singles including versions formerly only recorded by other artists.
In some cases, critics have arguable compared this to the "Beatles I" released last year. It's not far off. Containing no less than (19) #1 hits written by the Bee Gees and (11) of these recorded by them, it is an impressive set. None of the other songs fell below the Top 30 either in the USA or Europe; an excellent gauge to choose the best singles from well over 50 choices.
The Bee Gees own versions of hits recorded by others fare well enough, but lack the exhuberance of the originals. "Emotion" doesn't reach the heights of Samantha Sang's or Destiny's Child's versions and "Immortality", unfortunately sounds like a demo. Only "Islands In The Stream" really kicks in with Robin leading an R&B version of the song that proves it was originally intended as soul, not just Country.
However, if this is the worst one can find in this remarkable set of (40) songs, that is saying a lot. There is no better proof of the incredible songwriting and harmonizing talent the three Brothers exhibit so easily. This is sure to be a historic item in anyone's collection. Who knows. It may even outsell "Saturday Night Fever" (and it really ought to).
Trivia note: The European version of this collection has Barry Gibb singing the lead entry vocal on "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" and also includes the singles "My World" and "Jumbo" which were mysteriously omitted from the USA release.

Ok, so my girlfriend thinks I'm sad for rushing out and buying this, but I caught her bopping away to Jive Talkin' when I got home tonight!!!
I agree that the Bee Gees later music hasn't been as good as the stuff they were regularly churning out in the 70's, but can you name one Bee Gees song that doesn't get you to turn up your car stereo??? Whether it be 'Night Fever' or 'Stayin' Alive' the songs still pack the floors in cheesy nightclubs all over the world, why? Simply, because they're classics!
This album is two CDs of either incredibly infectious pop songs or marvellous ballads, which have been covered by almost everyone in the past few years. This record is a complete list of all the Bee Gee's hits, I can't think of one track that is missing, and they all still sound great no matter how many times you've heard them before.
I have almost bought the live greatest hits album (Live - One Night Only, which was released in 1999) several times, but luckily I hung on for this one, which has all songs in their entirety, unlike the live album.
If you don't have this album, then your record collection just isn't complete........
