Editors’ Notes

Spirits Having Flown is an appropriate title for The Bee Gees' 1979 album—it was their first release after the unprecedented success of their songs for the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. While their phenomenal flight would soon abruptly end as they fell from favor in the '80s, the Gibbs remained aloft both artistically and commercially with this album. Elder brother Barry Gibb occupied the forefront more than before, handling lead vocal duties on everything but "Living Together," where he shared the spotlight with Robin. Fans of the group's balladic side were served such delicacies as the edenic "Too Much Heaven," and the trio continued their love affair with Philly-style soul on the luminous slow jam "Stop (Think Again)." The larger-than-life "Tragedy" was actually the only tune to offer a straight-up four-on-the-floor disco beat, but a number of tracks—including the slinky hit "Love You Inside Out"—featured funky, syncopated grooves fully functional for dancing. Spirits would be the group's last golden moment for some time, but it sure shone brightly.

Customer Reviews

Spirits Having Flown

This was and still is one of my favorite albums by the Bee Gees, I was and am still a big fan. I only had it on vinyl and felt the immediate need to get it on my ipod once I saw it was available. I Love it, yes love it, and I am sure you will too.


An excellent album.A lot of stories in this album: three number 1 hits.Also "Reaching out" is a great song and is one of the best 20 songs of the grup and never was a single.Originally, song "spirits (having flown)" was made for sing with Andy Gibb thats why the first voice of Barry sound just like Andy and the only song in this cd that doesnt use falsetto.

Three Hits To Drive Sales...

This group was very popular in the late-1970's. My taste was shifting to other bands and singers during the late 1970's, but I can always enjoy the songs that The BeeGees performed during each of their decades. They knew how to harmonize - a trait that is often missing from popular music since the 1960's. That is what makes them indispensible - whether you liked (or like) Disco or not.


Formed: 1958 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Relying on their top-notch songwriting and impeccable vocals, the Bee Gees were able to craft a long-running career that began in the late '50s in Australia. Along the way they became a hit-producing psychedelic pop group in England during the '60s, the biggest disco band in the world in the '70s, and had a late comeback as adult contemporary crooners in the '90s. Their long-reaching influence extended past sales figures and saw their sound and style mirrored in acts as disparate as Justin Timberlake...
