This aural document of the 1998 concert that was broadcast exclusively on HBO serves double duty as a career resume for the Gibb brothers. The trio may be a little long in the tooth, and the top end of Barry's Aussie-soul-man falsetto may have lost a bit, but the group's trademark harmonies are still up to snuff. They wisely forgo any attempt at heady "artistic statements" in favor of that time-honored practice, playing the hits. By the '90s, the Bee Gees had attained "survivor" status, so just showing up was enough to endear them to the assembled faithful. Fortunately for listeners, the band's songs (the selection runs from the '60s through the '90s) stand the test of time quite well, and the Gibbs are still showmen enough to put their compositions across with a genuine sense of excitement. The concert being the media event it was, fans will likely forgive their heroes for the Celine Dion guest appearance.
