Product Description


One Night Only (DTS)
Taped as a lavish cable television special in 1997, One Night Only trades on the Bee Gees' shape-shifting career as pop survivors. Over the course of 111 minutes, this straightforward concert, produced at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and groomed for both video and CD posterity, sprints through 31 songs from their past three decades. Even after the inevitable disco jokes are expended, and the jaundiced viewer contemplates the role hats, hairspray, and comb-overs now play in dressing the once stylishly long-haired troika, the Gibb brothers' signature vocal harmonies and hook-laden song craft beg respect. Casual listeners can't be blamed for equating the Bee Gees with the dance floor bonanza they reaped through 1978's Saturday Night Fever, yet that commercial zenith was actually the culmination of a comeback for a group that had seemed washed up by the early '70s. One Night Only thankfully takes an even-handed view of both their original late '60s hits ("Massachusetts," "To Love Somebody," "Lonely Days"), building from a cannily Beatle-browed vocal sound, and the '70s blue-eyed soul ("Jive Talkin'," "Nights on Broadway") that led them naturally into disco. The Fever hits are here, as are Gibb originals that clicked for other acts; the family circle also widens for a posthumous duet with their late brother, Andy Gibb, while Celine Dion gets star billing in the collaborative "Immortality." --Sam Sutherland

This Is Where I Came In: The Official Story of the Bee Gees
There have been a lot of durable family groups in popular music over the years, but it would be hard to name one that has lasted longer, and succeeded as consistently, as the Bee Gees. Barry Gibb and his younger twin brothers, Robin and Maurice, were making TV and radio appearances in Australia as early as 1960 before returning to their native England and joining the Beatles-led British Invasion, and they're still at it more than 40 years later. All of that is duly chronicled in this two-hour documentary (produced in 2000), along with a great deal more: the personal problems that led to a breakup in the early '70s; the unparalleled success of the Saturday Night Fever era; their occasional missteps and failures (e.g., the abominable Sgt. Pepper movie); the rise and tragic fall of brother Andy; the respect their success finally earned them in the '90s; and so on. The format is pretty standard; interviews, photos, home movies, and concert footage all contribute to a straight, chronological telling of the Bee Gees' tale. But no stone is left unturned, and the Gibb Brothers (not to mention everyone else who's interviewed) have plenty to say. Best of all, there's lots of the Bee Gees' music, including a video of the title track of the 2001 album This Is Where I Came In, after which the film is named. In the end, we're left with the impression the Bee Gees would probably want us to have: that these guys have written, recorded, produced, and performed literally hundreds of great songs. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Concert and Biography May 10 2004
I have never seen a double DVD quite like this - totally entertaining that I'll watch it again and again. But how, HOW, can the publisher screw up mis-labeling the two discs!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treat And An Historic Event! Dec 1 2003
By Martin A Hogan TOP 500 REVIEWER
This kind of combination of DVD's at this price is almost unheard of. You will pay more if you buy either just, "One Night Only" or "The Offical Story" separately. They are virtually the same discs. The Gibbs decided to release this special package as, obviously, with the terrible passing of Maurice Gibb, this is the last concert and last series of interviews about the famous siblings and their families.
As the final Bee Gees DVD (officially) this set includes the entire MGM Grand concert from Las Vegas, Nevada (1997) and the brilliant 'life story' interviews of the Gibb family history from their humble beginnings in Manchester, England to the year 2001. If you ever wanted to really know what the three brothers are like, this is the most intimate interview they have ever done. To this day, they remain unjaded and still have the urge for that next big song or album. The overall atmosphere is upbeat and cheery. It's the kind of interview interspersed with film clips, song tracks and video. This is the ultimate Bee Gees keeper. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 2-disc set June 25 2004
This is a fantastic 2-disc set and a must-have for all you Bee Gees fans out there. Apart from the terrific live concert, the biography itself is worth the price of the 2 discs. I've seen another biography "Keppel Road - The life and music of the Bee Gees" which is available as a region 2 DVD on the UK amazon site. But the "Official Story" beats it hands down in terms of richness of content and presentation.
A few earlier reviewers have talked about the discs being mislabelled, but the discs I received were correctly labelled. So either those reviewers unfortunately received items from a bad batch or else the publishers have rectified the error.
Anyway, go ahead and buy this 2-disc set - you'll be glad you did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining May 16 2004
By A Customer
I don't consider myself a Bee Gees fan but recently caught a Bee Gees concert performance on TV. I found it touching and picked up this DVD. It's is a huge treat and pleasant surprise. Robin, Barry and the late Maurice all have different styles and strengths but in this performance, they combine for a very entertaining show. Sound is excellent; video is excellent.
Highlights for me were "Our Love" their tribute to Andy Gibb, "Alone" (Robin's voice is so pure), "New York Mining Disaster" (harmony of the 3 of them), "Nights on Broadway" and "Massachusetts". Many of the songs were not familiar to me but many more then these ones I mentioned stood our in this show.
Overall, I found this concert very touching especially in light of Maurice's very untimely passing two years ago. I'd recommend this DVD strongly if you ever appreciated the music and talents of this group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastique Sept. 20 2005
Un «must» pour tout ceux qui étaient de ce monde dans les années 70-80 et qui ont sans doute danser sur ces airs. Le destin tragique de cette famille y ajoute une touche mélodramatique. Plusieurs pièces sauront vous atteindre ...et peut-être même vous arracher une larme ,,,si vous écoutez encore votre coeur bien entendu.
