Christmas is coming early for record-collecting disco fanatics. On May 8th, Capitol/UMe will reissue five classic Bee Gees albums on both black vinyl and limited-edition colored vinyl.

The reissue project consists of 1969’s Best of the GeesMain Course from 1975, and 1976’s Children of the World, as well as 1977’s double live album Here at Last… Bee Gees… Live and Spirits Having Flown from 1979. All were remastered from the original analog LP master tapes at Capitol Studios by Kevin Bartley and Ian Sefchick.

Best of the Bee Gees famously collected the music icons’ biggest hits at that time, including “I Gotta Get a Message to You” and the Sir Barry Gibb ballad “Words”. Main Course meanwhile represented a slight shift in the group’s sound, with more R&B-meets-pop cuts like hit single “Jive Talkin'”.

On 1976’s Children of the World, the Bee Gees introduced to fans to “You Should Be Dancing”, which raced up the charts across the globe. The album itself also achieved multi-platinum status in the US. Meanwhile, the legendary outfit’s Here at Last live album was recorded at the Forum in Los Angeles and captures the Bee Gees’ onstage charisma.

Spirits Having Flown was the Bee Gees’ 15th album, as well as the first since their massively successful Saturday Night Fever soundtrack in 1977. The record features fan favorites “Tragedy”, “Too Much Heaven”, and “Love You Inside Out”.

It was announced last November that Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King was working with Paramount Pictures on a forthcoming Bee Gees biopic.
