The Warner Bros. Years 1987-1991 (5 CD Box Set)

Bee Gees
The Warner Bros. Years 1987-1991 (5 CD Box Set)

"This creative burst from ""The Brothers Gibb"" is remembered with a five-disc collection that includes all three studio albums, along with a selection of rare demos and outtakes. Also included is One For All, a 1989 concert recording available in its entirety for the first time. This 22-track live set has been newly mixed by Barry Gibb and John Merchant for a state-of-the-art sound that is the closest you can get to being there live.


THE WARNER BROS. YEARS 1987-1991 begins with the group's 17th album E.S.P. (1987), which reunited the group with Grammy-winning producer Arif Mardin, who worked with the Bee Gees on several albums, as well as the #1 smash ""Jive Talkin'."" Well-received throughout Europe, E.S.P. included the hit single ""You Win Again,"" which topped the charts in England. This set features all 11 original albums tracks, plus five bonus cuts, including the demo, extended and edited versions of the album's title track.


The Bee Gees returned two years later with One (1989). While recording the album, tragedy stuck the Gibb family when their brother Andy died unexpectedly. Soon after, the group wrote ""Wish You Were Here"" for Andy and dedicated the album to him. One generated several singles, including the title track, which cracked the U.S. Top Ten. Several different versions of the song are included as bonus tracks, as well as ""Shape Of Things To Come,"" which originally appeared on 1988 Summer Olympics Album: One Moment In Time.


High Civilization (1991) is the final studio album featured in THE WARNER BROS. YEARS. The album sold more than 1 million copies and landed ""Secret Love"" at #5 on the UK singles chart. Other key tracks include ""When He's Gone,"" ""The Only Love,"" and ""Happy Ever After."" The album has been newly remastered to authentically replicate the original studio sound the band achieved while recording.


In 1991, the Bee Gees released the concert video One For All. It was recorded in 1989 in Melbourne, Australia, the last stop on the group's One For All World Tour. During the concert, they performed songs that spanned the group's vast catalog, including early hits (""I Started A Joke"" and ""Spicks And Specks""), 70's-era smashes (""Jive Talkin'"" and ""Stayin' Alive"") and more recent songs (""Ordinary Lives"" and ""You Win Again."") Over the years, some of the performances have surfaced on various collections, but this marks the first time that audio of the entire concert will be available.
