Reprise Honors Barry, Maurice, Robin, And Andy Gibb With MYTHOLOGY, A Boxed Set With A Disc Dedicated To Each Brother

MYTHOLOGY Features Two Previously Unreleased Maurice Gibb Tracks, And One Previously Unreleased Track By Andy Gibb

Available From Reprise November 16

LOS ANGELES — The Bee Gees’ influential music earned brothers Barry, Robin, and the late Maurice Gibb an extended family of devoted fans. The group’s golden anniversary continues as the siblings share 50 years of memories with a musical and visual scrapbook. The four-disc boxed set MYTHOLOGY will be available worldwide November 16, at all retail outlets, including, for a suggested list price of $54.98 (CD) and $39.99 (digital).

MYTHOLOGY contains four discs, each spotlighting a different Gibb brother, including one dedicated to Andy. The songs were chosen by Barry, Robin, Maurice’s widow Yvonne (and their children Adam and Samantha), and Andy’s daughter Peta. “These are pretty much our personal favorites,” Barry explains in the liner notes. “This is now the Bee Gees 50th anniversary. And by the Bee Gees, I mean all four brothers.” “I always see our songs as ‘just us brothers’ having a good time,” adds Robin. “When I look back now, it is more about the journey, not the arrival.” MYTHOLOGY also features a collection of family photos, many never-before published, along with tributes from artists such as George Martin, Brian Wilson, Elton John, Graham Nash, and the band’s longtime manager Robert Stigwood.

Spanning the Bee Gees’ five-decade career, the set’s 81 tracks touch on several of the group’s best-known hits. But mainly, the collection digs into the Bee Gees’ vast catalog to highlight deep tracks such as the early single “Spicks And Specks” (1966); the title track from the 1969 concept album Odessa; the single B-side “Country Woman” (1971); “Spirits (Having Flown)” (1979), the title track from the 35 million-selling album; “The Longest Night” (1987) from the multiplatinum E·S·P; “Closer Than Close” (1997) from Still Waters; and “Man In The Middle” (2001) from the Bee Gees’ 20th and final studio album before Maurice’s passing in 2003. MYTHOLOGY also features the debut of a pair of previously unreleased Maurice Gibb tracks: “Angel Of Mercy” and “The Bridge.”

The final disc spotlights Andy Gibb who worked with his brothers throughout his career before his death in 1988 at the age of 30. Notably, Andy’s first 3 singles all went to #1 in the U.S., a feat that had never been accomplished before. The compilation opens with the #1 smash hit “Shadow Dancing” (1978) from Andy’s second album. Nearly all of the songs from his 1977 debut Flowing Rivers are featured, including the back-to-back #1 singles: “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” and “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water.” The set contains “I Can’t Help It,” his duet with Olivia Newton-John, as well as several tracks from his final studio album After Dark (1980). MYTHOLOGY also marks the debut of “Arrow Through The Heart,” a song Andy recorded shortly before his death that was intended for a comeback album.
