Thirty-six years on, the Bee Gees--castrati moments aside--look and sound great. -- Entertainment Weekly
Recorded live in Las Vegas at the end of 1997, this is the end of a musical journey that started for the Bee Gees in the 1960s--from their early hits like "Massachusetts" and "Words" through to the late 1970s when they emerged at the forefront of the Disco explosion. The film Saturday Night Fever saw their first revival, as they provided the soundtrack with classics like "Stayin' Alive", "You Should Be Dancing" and "Jive Talkin'". This album also takes in a number of tracks that were written by the Bee Gees for other artists, such as "Islands In The Stream" and "Immortality"--during which the trio are joined on stage by Celine Dion. These 24 tracks perfectly capture the reason why the Bee Gees have managed to remain so popular for so long. --Carina Trimingham --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

This concert contains great songs including Massachusetts, To Love Somebody, Closer than Closer (The only Maurice Gibb solo in the concert), One (Their best song ever), How Deep Is your love, and Alone. There are songs that have not bee performed by the Bee Gees themselves, which are Islands in the Stream, Heartbreaker, Guilty, Don't Throw It All Away (Recorded voice of Andy Gibb), and Immortallity featuring Celine Dion. I suggest the Celine Dion's fans to buy this one too, because Immortallity is very touching.
Overall, this concert and the CD was super well done, since it was the third CD that was recorded lively. If you want the other two that were released earlier, they are Here At Last...Bee Gees Live, and Tales from the Brother Gibbs. Later on, Live By Request was released.
Enjoy the trio!
The Bee Gees open the concert with a segue between the old and new. They start off with their most dynamic song of their career - "You Should Be Dancing". Without a bunch of remixing, you will come to appreciate this classic in a whole new light being performed live. Listen especially to the percussions on this song. You'll also hear crowd noise which the CD does a great job at not making too overbearing. Following "You Should Be Dancing", there is a nice segue into one of their newest songs called "Alone". The segue is perfect and is one example of bridging old and new nicely.
After the "You Should Be Dancing/Alone" segue, Barry Gibb says "...shoot back thirty years....and bring you up to date slowly but surely". Thus a series of older Bee Gees songs "Massachusetts", "To Love Somebody", "Words", and "Closer than Close" go back to the older years of the Bee Gees.Read more ›
The only slight criticism is Barry's high notes and falsetto, which he strains to reach, especially on "Stayin' Alive." He's backed up with some invisible (and pre-recorded) mystery voices, but his ability to sustain the high notes has decreased with time. Personally, I don't care. This is an awesome live album and for anyone who admires the brothers Gibb, this is something from which you'll derive hours of enjoyment.
I had no idea what impact the Bee Gees would have on my life and my musical career. One thing about this live album is the greatness of their classic songs. I prefer hearing the older hits live on this album than I do listening to them in their actual original studio versions.
On this live album, you can also hear the aging Barry Gibb falsetto. He used to have an incredible falsetto that no one else in the industry even got close to duplicating. Robin Gibb has also lost a bit of his incredible vibratto. He was once known as Pop music's Pavoratti, I believe. Maurice Gibb still hits those high notes when the brothers Gibb harmonize and is even showcased here singing solo. But other than that, the three brothers still deliver the goods vocally.
The Bee Gees have released two live albums in their career. The first being "Here At Last" released in 1976. That live album was a great album, but you can see the incredible maturity, musically and vocally, on this new album. The older album is out of print, but I was lucky enough to import a copy from Amazon UK.
Every song is a highlight, but there is one song that is here for the first time in its entirety, live... and that's "Islands in the Stream." What a beautiful live version of the song. Wow.
