Please Don't Turn Out the Lights by The Gibb Collective
REVIEW: Particularly stunning is the title track, "Please Don't Turn Out the Lights," which features the eldest of each of the brothers' kids working together in perfect harmony.
Spencer Gibb's take on "Don't Fall in Love With Me," first released by the Bee Gees in 1981, is another standout. His is a folk-inspired interpretation, but doesn't deviate too far from the foundation of the original version.
"In the Morning," covered by Samantha and Adam Gibb and Peta Gibb's "Fool For a Night" are ambitious covers of great originals.
"In the Morning" emphasizes the songwriting by shifting into a minimalist electronica melody. Peta turns Andy Gibb's campy 1978 single into a slinky, almost haunting club track.
Both of the covers carry the classic tunes into modernity without distracting from what made the songs so wonderful in the first place. http://thecelebritycafe.com

The Gibb Collective
Sam Gibb to GSI: Here's a little something : ) Thanks so much for your support!
Following a week celebration of The Bee Gees 40th Anniversary ('Saturday Night Fever') that included an amazing tribute at the Grammy Awards,
the children, nieces, nephews and the younger sister of all four Gibb brothers are set to release a special tribute album. The Official Album Teaser is now available.
The forthcoming album is scheduled for release on April 14th, 2017.
The Gibb Collective is a musical tribute, a family legacy and a fresh new take on classic songs. The Bee Gees left us with some of the most memorable music of the 70's.
And now the children of Andy, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb have found a new way to honor their fathers through music, The Gibb Collective.
The Gibb Collective was founded in 2016 by Maurice's daughter, Samantha, and quickly blossomed from a single into their first full album, The Gibb Collective (Official) Album.
The album is a collection of covers infused with new life and recorded by the children, nieces, nephews and the younger sister of all four Gibb brothers.

Gibb Children honour The Gibb Legacy with special album
The plan: to honor their Legacy With a Bee Gees Tribute Album.
The children of all four Brothers Gibb!! will record an album of classic songs for release in Spring 2017!!
The rich musical legacy of the Bee Gees and their brother Andy Gibb continues to entertain millions of fans across the globe,
and today the next generation of Gibbs announced a project honoring their music with new interpretations of classic songs.
Spearheaded by Maurice's daughter Samantha and producer Lazaro Rodriguez,
the project features contributions from ten different members of the family including children of all four brothers - Maurice, Robin, Andy, and Barry,
who released his third solo album this year. Sparked by Samantha and Lazaro creating one Bee Gees cover on their own,
and long awaiting the right time to do a tribute, they realized the musical potential here and that it was time to do something more.
Samantha reached out to her siblings and cousins and very quickly they all agreed to take part. "Everyone wanted to be involved. We are all true fans of their [Bee Gees] music and there is a connection for us, family," says Samantha. Each family member,
some of whom are working on albums of their own, were left to their own devices to create unique and personal versions of songs from the brothers' amazing catalog of music.
This labor of love brings a fresh flavor to the music and showcases the sheer talent across this incredible family. One track, in particular,
will send chills down your spine as you hear four children harmonizing together, reminiscent of the sound that brought their fathers to prominence decades before.
"We are very excited to share this collection of songs with everyone, especially long time fans of our fathers' music," says Samantha Gibb.
"This has been an amazing experience with the whole family working together to create something really special."
More details to come soon including track listings and full credits. The release date of this Bee Gees Tribute Album:
probably later in 2017. We will share more information when it becomes available!
