Bee Gees to mark 50th anniversary with special releases

Includes four-disc tribute to each Gibb brother

The Bee Gees are set to celebrate their 50th anniversary with the release of two compilations.

‘Mythology’, a four-disc tribute to each of the Gibb brothers, and a best of, ‘Ultimate Bee Gees: The 50th Anniversary Collection’, are set for release on November 2.

‘Mythology’ was curated and produced by Barry and Robin Gibb, with each of its discs named after and dedicated to a different Gibb brother, including Andy Gibb, who was not part of the group.

The songs were chosen by Barry and Robin Gibb, the late Maurice‘s widow Yvonne (and their children Adam and Samantha) and Andy Gibb‘s daughter Peta.

Writing in the sleevenotes, Barry Gibb explains the addition of Andy Gibb: “This is now The Bee Gees‘ 50th Anniversary. And by The Bee Gees, I mean all four brothers.”

The releases marks 50 years since brothers Barry, Robin, and the late Maurice Gibb began calling themselves The Bee Gees.

The second release, a best of, comes with a DVD of unreleased videos, previously unreleased television appearances, live performances, and promo videos.
