This CD was released approximately the same time as the four disc box set, but only in Europe. It covers the years of 1967 to 1979 with only the major hits. It's a nice greatest hits CD if you don't want to be bothered with the extraneous minor hits and album cuts of the Box Set. Nicely remixed as well. If you check out the USA Amazon.com, you will find the newly remastered version which is simply unbelievable!

For anyone who enjoyed Saturday Night Fever, this is an absolute must have cd. This is another cd that if you are looking at, you (hopefully) already know what you are getting into. If you are having doubts about buying it, wondering if any of the songs will really be familiar to other than Staying Alive, wondering how you can possibly bring this cd home to be laughed at - BUY IT!!! You will not regret owning this cd for an instant. This is one of the rare cd's that virtually anyone can relate to - be it from parties they went to as a youth or from theme parties they attended long after the disco years had ended. More than likely, virtually everyone still falls into the latter category. This cd is absolutely excellent and if you are looking at these reviews that means you are tempted to buy... Just do it!

All a fan could ask for a quarter century of top rank classic Bee Gee hits showing them from there first live top of the pops in a Manchester chuch to their massive Broadway and film hits of the 70s and 80s if there was a sixth star I would give magnificoxxx

My personal opinion of the Bee Gees took a massive up-swing when one of the brothers finally stood up to Clive Anderson on National TV. Whatever it is: the sweet harmonies or canny knack of always being just ahead of the game, these Mmanchester bandoliers are always just too good for the critics. Whenever the chattering classes think they've finally nailed them into a corner, and that it's finally been proved beyond all reasonable doubt that the Bee Gees are naff, then they come back with one more reinvention that captures the time and the Nation's heart. While the rest of pop officialdom was going hippy on us, these boys were still shopping at Woolworths. When all around you were losing their heads......keep writing songs like New York Mining Disaster and Massachusetts. Inimitable classic ballads about.....er......industrial accidents and somewhere difficult to pronounce in America. Then when you're career's going down the tubes you make a concious effort to go back to your r&b roots in a completely revoloutionary way. Result; Some of the most hypnotic dance tracks ever produced like Night Fever, Stayin' Alive and Tragedy. The Bee Gees are more than a phenomenon, they are a testament to the very human qualities of self belief and persevering hard work, because when it comes down to it there is a market for impressively crafted harmonies and the human soap opera their lives sometimes resemble. The Very Best of.....showcases the two sides of the Band, the moody melodies and the foot tapping seventies disco classics. It also shows why Clive Anderson was so wrong......there is real public affection for the Salford songsmiths for the very real quality of their output and their equally admirable quality of overcoming personal hearttbeak and adversity to carry on delivering great music to us, the great British public.

It's a nice greatest hits CD if you don't want to be bothered with the extraneous minor hits and album cuts of the Box Set. It was already well mixed at the first printing - but this remastered version is amazing!

My dad had this album on an old tape then it broke. I looked around for a while but could not find it any place but found it no problem on amazon. My dad is now very happy he has it on cd as he listened to it all the time at least he wont break it this time. I also like it as my dad listened to it that much i got used to it.

Would reccomend it to any BEE GEES fan.

considering what I paid for this cd which wasn't very much, however the cd arrived well packed, and on time, but I was pleasantly surprised that the condition of this cd was in very good condition , so considering every thing else, for me it certainly was very good value for money .and again I was well pleased with my purchase, both from the service I got from the supplier. and amazon too.
