This aural document of the 1998 concert that was broadcast exclusively on HBO serves double duty as a career resume for the Gibb brothers. The trio may be a little long in the tooth, and the top end of Barry's Aussie-soul-man falsetto may have lost a bit, but the group's trademark harmonies are still up to snuff. They wisely forgo any attempt at heady "artistic statements" in favor of that time-honored practice, playing the hits. By the '90s, the Bee Gees had attained "survivor" status, so just showing up was enough to endear them to the assembled faithful. Fortunately for listeners, the band's songs (the selection runs from the '60s through the '90s) stand the test of time quite well, and the Gibbs are still showmen enough to put their compositions across with a genuine sense of excitement. The concert being the media event it was, fans will likely forgive their heroes for the Celine Dion guest appearance.
Entertainment Weekly (11/27/98, p.84) - "...Thirty-six years on, the Bee Gees--castrati moments aside--look and sound great." - Rating: B+
This is a fantastic CD containing a superior collection of some of the Bee Gee's best songs. It is amazing how great these guys sound lLve! I have not come across another compilation of Greatest Hits that I enjoy more - there really is something for everyone from "Islands in the Stream" to "Staying Alive" and even a guest spot with Celine Dion. My only complaint is that the CD jacket was unspectacular - I was hoping for some lyrics sheets or a bio of the band, but it was very plain. Definitely a great gift for any Bee Gees fan.
Loved this CD. The Bee Gees at their best I reckon!!! They acknowledge their brother Andy and sing a song in remembrance for him. They also have a song featuring Celine Dion (Immortality) which is a lovely rendition. Sound quality is very good for a live performace. A great addition for easy "listening" to any CD collection
