Bee Gees / Mythology 4CD reissue

The Bee Gees / Mythology reissueRhino have been doing a great job reissuing old box sets at budget prices. Releases so far have included Fleetwood Mac‘s 25 Years: The Chain and Rod Stewart‘s Storyteller, both dating from the early nineties.

For their next release it is a little surprising to see them tackle the Bee Gees‘ four-disc Mythology box, because it was only originally released two years ago and wasn’t particularly expensive in the first place.

As with the other releases, the packaging is transformed, in this case from a ‘bookset’ to four CDs in a ‘fat box’ with an outer slip case. Unlike the other issues, this sees a new cover treatment with photos of the four Gibb brothers on a red background replacing the elaborate Gibb crest from the previous box.

The music is of course the same, with this set originally promoted both as a 50th anniversary collection and the Gibb brothers’ family album. A disc is dedicated to each brother: Barry, Robin, Maurice and Andy. At the time this compilation was put together, Barry and Robin chose their own songs, with Maurice’s songs selected by his widow Yvonne and Andy’s songs selected by his daughter Peta.

This new version of Mythology is out in early December for most territories, although it is already available in Germany.

    On the subject of excellent Warner boxsets getting this budget treatment, is there any news of ZZ Top’s superb (but now OOP and £100 used) following the Bee Gees, Rod and Fleetwood Mac re-issues?
