The Bee Gees' phenomenal success in the 1970s often obscures the fact that by the time the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack redefined R&B dance music, the trio already had more than ten albums and a string of worldwide hits under their belts. The Studio Albums 1967-1968— the initial installment of the first-ever catalogue upgrade for the group—shows that The Brothers Gibb possessed the musical Midas touch from the very beginning.
The Studio Albums 1967-1968 (available in a numbered edition of 10,000) is the definitive collection of the five-piece Bee Gees lineup that rocketed to fame in the late 1960s: singing siblings Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb, and Australian instrumentalists Vince Melouney and Colin Petersen. The quintet's albums Bee Gees 1st, Horizontal, and Idea have been brilliantly revitalized, with remastered CDs of stereo and mono mixes of each title paired with second discs of rare and unreleased recordings from the period—the first time The Bee Gees have opened their vaults for extensive archival exploration.
The Studio Albums 1967-1968 gathers all three of these pop-psych classics in a slipcase, with each double-disc in its own gatefold digipak. Along with many beautiful photos from the era, the accompanying booklets feature insightful liner notes by '60s sage Andrew Sandoval—including extensive new interviews with Barry and Robin on their career and music.
