In 2001, Polydor/Universal Music released the definitive Bee Gees retrospective compilation: Their Greatest Hits - The Record. It was a great success, it presented all their major hits in glorious remastered sound, and threw in a few new recordings for good measure. So why, in 2004, just three years later, did the same company release another compilation, this time less complete?

With the exception of 'Man In The Middle', a song co-written, produced and sung by Maurice Gibb from the album This Is Where I Came In (included - quite rightly - as a tribute to the great man), every other song is featured on the 2001 collection. They even have the audacity to include two 'bonus tracks' ('Islands In The Stream' and the demo of 'Immortality') that were also released for he first time on Their Greatest Hits - The Record.

Given that the far superior 2001 collection is still available, that is a much better buy than this. Taken alone, this album does what it says on the tin, but many of the Bee Gees best hits didn't make number one. I suppose that this album is a cheaper option that Their Greatest Hits - The Record, and that is all there is to commend it.

Of course, with a collection of songs as good as this, it may be a pointless release, but I would have to be tone deaf to give it any less than 3 stars!
