Bee Gees

The Studio Albums 1967-1968 (Reprise)

"Please Read Me"! "I've Gotta Get a Message to You"! Reprise has restored the first three Bee Gees LPs, 1st, Horizontal, and Idea, 1967-68, in a 6-CD boxed set featuring the original albums in stereo and mono, plus a full disc each of rare and previously unreleased tracks! Heed my "Words" this "Holiday" season and join the Brothers Gibb in giving the gift that's never "Out of Line." Know what it is "To Love Somebody" by sharing sounds that by any reasonable estimation should've been remastered well before the "Turn of the Century." "Come Some Christmas Eve or Halloween," your "One Minute Woman" will never find this material "Completely Unoriginal" whether in a "Sinking Ship" or "Sitting in the Meadow." Even if you get lost in this Sixties pop psychedelia, "Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You" how to get "Down to Earth" as "Barker of the U.F.O" croons a "Chocolate Symphony" from "Mrs. Gillespie's Refrigerator" at "Cucumber Castle." Really, it's out of this "World." After the "New York Mining Disaster 1941," the Bee Gees went to "Massachusetts" and with Robert Stigwood layed down Horizontal, an album so brilliant, "I Close My Eyes." "I've Got to Learn" to write better, because "In My Own Time," this seemed like a really good "Idea," but "With the Sun in My Eyes" "I Can't See Nobody," and now it appears "I Started a Joke" I couldn't finish. It would be "Such a Shame" not to say "Thank You for Christmas." "Really and Sincerely."
