 "Bee Gees Greatest (Special Edition)"

There's no “Jive Talkin'” here except for the Bee Gees chart-topping single, one of many legendary '70s-era classics from the Brothers Gibb on this bonus-packed, updated 2-CD reissue of their five-years-out-of-print hits compilation BEE GEES GREATEST.


The collection was first released in 1979 as a double LP, 20-track set that hit #1 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart. Rhino's remastered & expanded remaking of it features all that original greatness plus two previously unreleased tracks - including one song making its recording debut - and scorching new remixes of four immortal hits from Saturday Night Fever.


This historic reissue coincides with Paramount Home Entertainment's 30th Anniversary Special Collector's Edition of the film classic Saturday Night Fever, a defining statement of the disco era - but perhaps not as much as its companion soundtrack, which was dominated by Bee Gees smashes. That landmark 1977 #1 title - also newly reissued by Rhino in 30th anniversary splendor - has sold in excess of 30 million copies, is one of the top-selling soundtracks ever and is #131 on Rolling Stone's list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”


It's also the source for six of GREATEST's all-time greatest from Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, including five #1 smashes: “Jive Talkin',” “How Deep Is Your Love,” “You Should be Dancing,” the GRAMMY®winning “Night Fever” and “Stayin' Alive,” plus “More Than A Woman To Me.”


Four of those classic songs also boast feverish new, previously unreleased bonus remixes on GREATEST from hot contemporary mixers and producers: “You Should Be Dancing” (Jason Bentley/Philip Steir Remix); “If I Can't Have You” (Count Da Money Remix); “Night Fever” (Future Funk Squad Remix); and “How Deep Is Your Love (Supreme Beings Of Leisure Remix).”


GREATEST, which overall spotlights the ultimate hits from Bee Gees studio albums released between 1975 and 1979, also boasts standouts including the #1 pop singles “Love You Inside Out,” “Tragedy” and “Too Much Heaven,” as well as the signature songs “Nights On Broadway” and “Spirits (Having Flown).”


In addition to the bold new remixes, bonus material also includes the recorded debut of the previously unissued song “Warm Ride” and the rare 12”, promo-only version of “Stayin' Alive.”


You could have been dancin' for the past five years, but it would have been without a new copy of GREATEST to call your own. That's remedied now with Rhino's makeover of the previously retired title, reborn as GREATEST (SPECIAL EDITION). The only authentic Bee Gees '70s era-centric hits collection available, it's made even more special with new remixes of four iconic SNF grooves.


Bee Gees' marathon legacy spans five decades, seven platinum albums, eight GRAMMYs, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and over 60 chart hits - including six straight #1 singles. Look for Rhino's other Bee Gees titles, all part of our first-ever restoration of the legendary group's extensive catalog, which will eventually be revitalized and upgraded in its entirety. GREATEST also includes a special hidden track of Stayin' Alive as remixed by Scandinavian rock/pop sensations Teddybears.
