Another compilation of Bee Gees songs sung
by other artists. Many of the songs are
well-known (and, indeed, feature on the more
Gees Songbook). However, the twist
here is that these are all soul songs, and
they have slipped in a few very rare gems.
'I've Gotta Get A Message To You' by Percy
Sledge, 'I Started A Joke' by Richie Havens,
'Please Read Me' by Nina Simone and 'Love So
Right' by Jerry Butler & Thelma Houston are
all tracks that are otherwise generally
unavailable on CD. Several of the other
tracks you are unlikely to have heard
The album also includes Robin Gibb's 'Toys',
a slightly different mix from that featured
on the Walls Have Eyes album.
Soul of the Bee Gees?
For some very rare covers of famous Bee Gees
songs by mainly black, soul artists. It also
features Robin Gibb's 'Toys'.
