Barry Gibb version[edit]

Barry Gibb's version of "Buried Treasure" was a guideline for Rogers' album Eyes That See in the Dark released in 1983, this version was not released until 2006.

This song is a country singalong along the lines of the songs Barry and Maurice had done before, and Maurice appears to be singing the harmony done by The Gatlin Brothers on the completed recording. Gibb's version was recorded around February along with four songs also intended for Rogers' album "Hold Me", "Living with You" and "Islands in the Stream".[2]
