The Bee Gees album Timeless: The All-Time Greatest Hits, which was released in 2017 on digital and CD formats, is getting a vinyl release Oct. 26 on Capitol/Universal Music Enterprises. Most of the songs on the compilation are from the 1960s and 1970s, with the only post-1970s song on the album being 1987's "You Win Again." The album was overseen by Barry Gibb, the last surviving member of the Bee Gees. Barry's fraternal twin brothers Robin Gibb (who died in 2012 of liver and kidney failure) and Maurice Gibb (who passed away in 2003 from complications of a twisted intestine) were the other members of the group.
Barry wrote in the introduction for Timeless: "There is a spirituality about this album and these songs always meant the most to us. Although there are many other songs, these songs, I feel, are the songs that Maurice, Robin, and I would be most proud of."
The year 2017 was the 40th anniversary of the Grammy-winning Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, the Bee Gees' biggest-selling album. That year, CBS televised "Stayin' Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees," which featured performances by Barry Gibb, Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Demi Lovato, Keith Urban, Pentatonix, Katharine McPhee, Jason Derulo, Tavares, Nick Jonas, Tori Kelly, Andra Day, DNCE, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett and Panic! At the Disco.
