    Robin Gibb/Titanic

    I have a feeling i've asked about this on here but can't remember if and whereabouts, so i'll have one last stab.Last year the Premier of Robin Gibb and Jnr Gibb released the "Titanic Requiem", it premiered in London, but was and invited only thing i think, but i caught a small bit of it on The Arts Channell and the orchestration/arrangements etc sounded superb, i've tried to get a hold of it but it seems as easy to find as hen's teeth.
    It also seems very expensive, the only copy i saw was on Amazon and it was well over £20.
    Does anyone anywhere know where it might be possible to get this at a sensible price here in Britain or Europe. Hope so Scott.

    Have not seen it Scot. Some of these copies are very expensive. I wanted a copy og the original soundtrack of Porgy and Bess. £500.00 believe it or not.

    I contacted HMV in Kingston Upon Thames near me, and Croydon, and London Oxford St, and all i got from the 3 was that it was "part of his back catalogue"!!!!!???????. i said to the three members of staff that as he was hardly likely to record anymore it would have to be his back catalogue, and they just told me it wasn't available anywhere near?????. Could this attitude and low style of cust serv have been part of the fall and possibly rise of HMV.
    I also tried an HMV in Manchester and in Glasgow and they couldn't help either.
    Poor old RG and his son can't have had much success in sales for this, certainly not with HMV.
    Maybe it'll turn up somewhere. Ho Hum!!!! Scott

    Looks like you could be stuck with Amazon Scot. Pricey, but compare it to a night out anywhere, cinema, pub, restaurant or concert and it seems like a bargain.

    There I was, after the transmigration of my father's soul, a transmogrifying event for me,
    I was drawn to drive to Niagara Falls, finding myself before it, alone after midnight.
    I started singing my own words to "I started a joke, and started the whole world crying,
    only I couldn't see, that the joke was on me".
    If a BeeGees song is the only melody that came to me, unexpectedly, during such a dire time,
    and I sang out of our hearts and disappearing clan, what more of a compliment could I make?
