17 Songs, 1 Hour 5 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Robin Gibb's posthumous final solo album is a gorgeous, bittersweet triumph for one of the greats in English pop. His soulful voice breaks hearts repeatedly here, on “Days of Wine & Roses,” “Alan Freeman Days,” and the rerecording of The Bee Gees’ 1966 classic “I Am the World.” The album’s title is the address where Robin and his brothers grew up on the Isle of Man. Most songs were written and recorded between 2006 and 2008, three years before his terminal diagnosis, yet they carry a retrospective sense. The final track, “Sydney,” recorded on his iPad, remembers happier times when the brothers were all young and alive.

One last gem from a Legend

Robin Gibb has a collection of songs that connect together with the themes of love and the importance of not taking it for granted. Days of Wine and Roses is a masterpiece and holds up to Robin’s incredible catalog. Instant Love, I am the World (a new version of a “B” side Bee Gees tune, and Sydney are the standouts in this must have release for any Bee Gees fan and an essential must have for Robin Gibb fan.
