LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 26, Capitol/UMe will release the Bee Gees' Timeless: The All-Time Greatest Hits in a 2LP vinyl edition. Already available on CD and digitally, the career-spanning collection of top hits by one of music's most legendary and acclaimed groups features 21 tracks personally selected by Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb.

"There is a spirituality about this album and these songs always meant the most to us," says Barry Gibb in his written introduction for Timeless: The All-Time Greatest Hits. "Although there are many other songs, these songs, I feel, are the songs that Maurice, Robin, and I would be most proud of."
