What happens when you get the children and grandchildren and the family involved to create their fathers and uncles music from the 1970s? And let me say this, the children and grandchildren are of the singers from the hit group The Bee Gees! The Gibb Collective album features several Children of the Gibb family doing their own take on some of the Bee Gees songs.
Fans of the Bee Gees, the musical supergroup of the 1970s, and their brother Andy Gibb, have reason to cheer with the announcement of The Gibb Collective.
It’s a musical tribute, a family legacy and a fresh new take on classic songs: the children of Andy, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb have found a new way to honor their fathers through music.
The Gibb Collective was founded in 2016 by Maurice’s daughter, Samantha a busy singer-songwriter and producer, and quickly blossomed from a single into their first full album, “Please Don’t Turn Out the Lights.”
Joining Samantha on the album are Spencer and Robin-John Gibb (Robin’s sons), Stephen and Travis Gibb (Barry’s sons), Peta Gibb (Andy’s daughter), Adam Gibb (Maurice’s son) and Berry Gibb-Rhoades (the brothers younger sister).
The album is a collection of covers infused with new life and recorded by some of the children and younger sister to all four brothers.
On Time – Spencer Gibb
This is an interesting take on the classic. It has a feel of country music and Stephen gives a performance that I’m sure his uncle’s and father would be extremely proud of. He has the soul to do it and it makes you feel as if you’re listening to the Bee Gees in the seventies as if they were a country band.
Angel Of Mercy – Samantha Gibb
This one is one of my favorites due to it being extremely pop sounding. Her voice reminds me of a a country singer but yet this song is mix of rnb mixed with pop. Def an instant classic all over again.
I Can’t See Nobody – Berry Gibb
This is one of the songs that has the original flare mixed in with new vibes. As a fan of the original I think they did justice to the song. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not the original but I believe these songs could be hits all over again!
Please Don’t Turn Out The Lights – Gibbs
This is a song that is really a collective of all the kids voices on one track. Each person has third own style and brings it to this song. They have perfect harmonies that would make you cringe in happiness!
October marks the 45th anniversary of the Bee Gees song “Please Don’t Turn Out the Lights.”
Don’t Fall In Love With Me – Spencer Gibb
I really liked the original song but this one is one song that I can def hear the original tone and also the take on it. I think this is a passionate remake of a song.
That was only five songs off the album, but there are many more and I encourage you guys out there to go and research this album! This album brings you back to the 70s, it makes you feel as if everything is okay and you are in a world of happiness. The brothers, sisters, nieces, nephew’s, and cousins of the Gibbs come together on an album that is purely inspirational for any Bee Gees fan. I believe that the children of the Gibbs have done and emotional album dedicated to their family’s lineage. Get this album now before it goes gold and possibly Platinum due to the musical Talent behind the songs!
