    DISCLAIMER: No, I cannot post links to this (obviously).

    For the past ten years or so, I've had a passion project in mind that I kept extensive notes on, but never had the resources to compile. Until recently. For the past few months, I've been seeing this project to completion!

    The most expansive collection of the Bee Gees' Australian years, "Brilliant From Birth", is OKAY - but there's a lot of ground left uncovered within its two jam-packed discs. How many CD's would it take to truly tell the story of the Bee Gees' Australian recordings? Well, my 'complete as possible' edition is a whopping *nine discs*. Volumes 1-8 are currently complete; working on volume 9 now. Out of the many CD's I've compiled for myself, this set is easily my proudest accomplishment, because it's never been done before. :)

    Take a look at the track list....

    I'm hugely impressed, Laze - well done! Are you aware of the PP Arnold 1968 album with Barry's involvement that came out only recently? Not within the remit of your Australia-based project, you might enjoy two YouTube uploads I made very recently, featuring tracks from their first two Top Gear radio sessions (UK), which I digitised from inherited reels. Here's one:

    Thankfully I've only just started disc 9 - a YouTube search just turned up live TV versions of "The Battle of the Blue and the Grey" and "Don't Say Goodbye" with a country backing band!
