A Boxed Set With A Disc Dedicated To Each Brother
Available From Reprise 3 December 2012
"They say the future is always brighter if you can let go of the past, but the Bee Gees will live forever in my heart." - Barry Gibb 2010
The Bee Gees' influential music earned brothers Barry and the late Robin and Maurice Gibb an extended family of devoted fans. Produced to mark the group's golden anniversary this very special boxed set was created by Barry and Robin Gibbwith the siblings sharing 50 years of memories in this stunning musical andvisual scrapbook. The beautifully repackaged four-disc boxed set MYTHOLOGY will be available on 3 December 2012.
MYTHOLOGY contains four discs, each spotlighting a different Gibb brother, including one dedicated to Andy. The songs were personally chosen in 2010 by Barry, Robin, Maurice's widow Yvonne (and their children Adam and Samantha), and Andy's daughter Peta. "These are pretty much our personal favourites," Barry explains in the liner notes. "This is now the Bee Gees 50th anniversary. And by the Bee Gees, I mean all four brothers." "I always see our songs as 'just us brothers' having a good time," added Robin. "When I look back now, it is more about the journey, not the arrival." MYTHOLOGY also features a collection of family photos, many never-before published, along with tributes from artists such as George Martin, Brian Wilson, Elton John, Graham Nash, and the band's long-time manager Robert Stigwood.
More poignant that ever, Mythology was created in 2010 by Barry with his brother Robin who sadly died earlier this year on 20 May 2012. Both Barry and Robin's own word's accompany this brilliant body of work. Spanning the Bee Gees' five-decade career, the set's 81 tracks touch on several of the group's best-known hits. But mainly, the collection digs into the Bee Gees' vast catalogue to highlight deep tracks such as the early single "Spicks And Specks" (1966); the title track from the 1969 concept album Odessa; the single B-side "Country Woman" (1971); "Spirits (Having Flown)" (1979), the title track from the 35 million-selling album; "The Longest Night" (1987) from the multiplatinum E•S•P; "Closer Than Close" (1997) from Still Waters; and "Man In The Middle" (2001) from the Bee Gees' 20th and final studio album before Maurice's passing in 2003. MYTHOLOGY also features the debut of a pair of Maurice Gibb tracks: "Angel Of Mercy" and "The Bridge."
The final disc spotlights Andy Gibb who worked with his brothers throughout his career before his death in 1988 at the age of 30. Notably, Andy's first 3 singles all went to #1 in the U.S., a feat that had never been accomplished before. The compilation opens with the #1 smash hit"Shadow Dancing" (1978) from Andy's second album. Nearly all of the songs from his 1977 debut Flowing Rivers are featured, including the back-to-back #1 singles: "I Just Want To Be Your Everything" and "(Love Is) Thicker Than Water." The set contains "I Can't Help It," his duet with Olivia Newton-John, as well as several tracks from his final studio album After Dark (1980). MYTHOLOGY also marks the debut of "Arrow Through The Heart," a song Andy recorded shortly before his death that was intended for a comeback album.
