The Definitive Biography
Tiggah | Calgary, Alberta Canada | 07/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Bee Gees were one of the most significant bands of the 20th century, and this 2001 biography is an absolute gem. It was the first DVD I bought, and it's the only programme for which I have both the DVD and the video. The video (which is 100 minutes) was originally broadcast on A&E and is fantastic and certainly worth getting if you don't have a DVD player. But the DVD, which is a slightly different mix, is a full 2 hours, with the additional footage (which was cut from the video and television broadcast) sprinkled throughout. Included primarily are additional minutes of archival video footage, but additional bits from interviews and bits of background information have also been tucked in here and there. The DVD also offers a couple of worthwhile special features. Firstly, there's the video for the single "This Is Where I Came In"; and secondly, there is an additional 30 minutes or so of interviews with Barry, Robin and Maurice that did not make it into the presentation. These are just snippets (a minute or two on a mishmash of topics), but they are certainly worth checking out.As for the presentation itself, a full one-half of the video/DVD is dedicated to chronicling the Gibbs' early years, and there is plenty of archival footage from home videos and early television performances. In addition to chronicling the rollercoaster path their career has taken, the presentation includes loads about their personal lives--from their marriages, divorces, and children's births to the tragic deaths of their brother Andy and of their dad. The video/DVD features interviews with each of the three brothers, with their mum Barbara, with Robin's wife Dweena, with Maurice's wife Yvonne, with Robert Stigwood and various other individuals in the music industry. What really makes this presentation sparkle are the many, many excerpts from their enormous body of music that play in the background. In conclusion, this is an outstanding visual biography of an extraordinarily talented trio of brothers--one that is both rich in content and beautifully presented. The poignancy one feels near the end of the video/DVD is only heightened by our knowledge of the tragic death of Maurice Gibb less than two years after it was made, and it is sadly ironic that this biography has served to mark the end of an era. With it we have been given a rare and special look into the lives of three brothers with a rare and special talent who wrote, recorded and performed some of the most beautiful music the world has ever heard. This is the definitive biography of the Bee Gees--a keepsake that will be cherished and enjoyed by both serious and casual fans alike, or indeed by anyone whose lives have been made just a little richer by the music of the Brothers Gibb. Extremely highly recommended."

"This Tape is no less than a complete, thorough and entertaining walk throught the history of the Bee Gees, their families, counterparts and freinds lives. Never before this have I had people approach me and say they were amazed at the Bee Gees History after viewing this show. The pace is fast, the editing meticulous and the sound engineer had his work cut out for him. Taking instrumentals from dozens of songs, the engineers used them as back-up music for happy times to tragedies (one listen to the Robin Gibb train wreck with the cellos droning from "Miracles Happen", is frightening). Filmed first by father Hugh Gibb in the toddler stage throughout their youth is great material. The world media takes it on from there.Interview, old song concert clips, candid and thought provoking comments from each of the brothers keeps this video rolling. It is a piece of history and keeps on coming!"
The Last Great Interview!

"It is a sad note that this is the last DVD of the Bee Gees with the loss of Maurice Gibb.
