Recorded live in Las Vegas at the end of 1997, this is something of a musical journey over 30 years long, ranging from the Bee Gees' early hits ("Massachusetts", "Words") through to the late 1970s when they emerged at the forefront of the disco explosion. The movie Saturday Night Fever saw their revival as they provided the soundtrack with classics like "Stayin' Alive", "You Should Be Dancing" and "Jive Talkin'". One night Only 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. --Carina Trimingham --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

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.
(guitar-oriented rock) I have always respected The Bee Gees for their staying power in a very fickle industry.
Much to the consternation of my Led Zeppelin peers, this CD was enjoyable over and beyond my expectations.
I found it fitting that I discovered it five years after its release, right on the brink of the 25th anniversary of the movie "Saturday Night Fever", which will be released for the first time on DVD this fall. Six of the tunes from the all-time best selling soundtrack are included here. IF YOU THINK THEY HAVE NOTHING TO ADD TO THE STUDIO VERSIONS, YOU ARE IN FOR THE SURPRISE OF YOUR LIFE.........THEY R-O-C-K!!! The live versions are infused with a passion, spirit and energy over and beyond the originals, and also benefit from the new technology. HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE remains the finest ballad of the disco era. Every time I hear it, it stays in my head and I hum it for days on end. So it was a joy to hear it reprised (also check out their "unplugged" version on the VH1 STORYTELLERS CD). And of course with the proper chords! How many cover versions have I heard where those imposters get the chords wrong and wreck it.....CRIMINAL!!
Also it brought back fond memories of the songs I first heard on AM radio when they began, like LONELY DAYS.
The Bee Gees are timeless and unique, which reserves them a mark in popular music history. Good music done tastefully. They single-handedly revived the disco era, which was ready to fold from such weak efforts like DISCO DUCK and DO THE HUSTLE. And although disco endured another two or three years,the music that followed after SNF was characterized by an incessant and annoying throbbing bass line that could make one deaf or insane. The Bee Gees output was more benign and of course the songs were superior in their craftmanship.
BUY THIS CD AND LOVE IT!!
The brothers provide a gorgeous overview of their early years (1967-1972) with a few of their best-loved songs--gems like "Massachussets" and "I Started a Joke" to name but two. Naturally, no Bee Gees concert would be complete without a selection of songs from their most commercially-successful period to date (1975-1979), and this era is wonderfully represented with songs that include the Saturday Night Fever hits. ("Night Fever" and "More Than a Woman" are, it should be mentioned, abbreviated versions with the former melding seamlessly and stunningly into the latter).
Lest anyone be surprised and, perhaps, disappointed, foreshortened versions (with all three brothers around a single mike and fairly minimal musical accompaniment) are presented for "I Can't See Nobody" (1:23), "And the Sun Will Shine" (1:49), "Nights on Broadway" (0:58), "Heartbreaker" (1:00) which was originally written for Dionne Warwick, and "Guilty" (2:15) which was originally written for Barbra Streisand.Read more ›

I saw a filmed version of this concert, which was great! The CD is taken from that concert and is equally as good. A very good BeeGees compilation.Published 1 month ago by madelynhilleard
