Welcome to

This double album was released in the autumn of 1979, after ”Spirits Having Flown" the same year. This album marked the end of their sound up until now, sometimes called "The Helium Years", which spanned from 1975 to 1979. Their next studio album "Living Eyes", released in 1981, goes in another musical direction.


This album is very expensive looking. The cover is folded in three sections with a full colour picture of each one of them on the inside. The protection cover of the records are made of transparent plastic with the Bee Gees logo printed in red. A picture of each one of them are also on the records marking the different sides.


Some songs are released on an album for the first time by the Bee Gees:

"(Our love) Don't throw it all away" was previously recorded and released by Andy Gibb.

"If I can't have you" was previously recorded by Yvonne Elliman and released on "Saturday Night Fever" and on her own album "Night Flight". The Bee Gees version of the song had only been released as the backside of the "Staying Alive" single.
