Bee Gees Gold was a compilation album, released in America and Japan only (was also released in the UK), that focused on the early hits of the Bee Gees. Labeled as "Volume 1", it featured their U.S. Top 20 hits between 1967 and 1972 (plus "I Can't See Nobody", an album cut from Bee Gees 1st). The album was intended to replace the two previous hits compilations, Best of Bee Gees and Best of Bee Gees, Volume 2. It reached #50 on Billboard's album chart during a time when the Bee Gees were topping the charts with their new R&B/Disco sound found on their then current album Children of the World. Gold went gold in America in January 1978 and has sold 1.3 million copies to date. A kind of second volume was released as Bee Gees Greatest in 1980 which summed up the disco years from 1975-1979.

The album was never released on CD, though the previous two compilations mentioned above were issued in the late 1980s. Cassette versions were available well into the 1990s.
