Arriving on the heels of the much-celebrated 2020 documentary How Can You Mend a Broken Heart—a warm-hearted look back on the career of the Bee Gees and, more specifically, the Gibb brothers—this duets album has a lot to live up to. The end results, however, are hit or miss, as Barry Gibb (the only surviving brother) teams up with a slew of country artists on the group's biggest songs. Highlights include "Too Much Heaven," which pushes the right buttons from those first bars of easy listening perfection. With Alison Krauss taking Barry's higher melody part, there's a balance and easy trade-off that brings to mind Barry's best duets with Barbra Streisand. Keith Urban, smooth and sweet, sounds like the lost Gibb brother on one of the Bee Gees' earliest hits, "I've Gotta Get a Message to You." And Rival Sons' frontman Jay Buchanan brings a true-blue soulfulness to "To Love Somebody"— but ends up overshadowing Barry. Age wears well on some voices. But when the voice was heaven-sent falsetto perfection to begin with, time is a heartbreaker. Which makes "Words," Barry's duet with Dolly Parton—herself a high-in-the-clouds songbird in her younger years, including when she and Kenny Rogers had a hit with the Barry-penned "Islands in the Stream"—a humbling, bittersweet listen. The same goes for "Rest Your Love On Me," with Olivia Newton-John. But there are bright spots where Barry fits in comfortably, including a twangy take on "Words of a Fool" with Jason Isbell and "How Deep Is Your Love," which finds him hitting the high notes and embraced by Little Big Town's butter-rich harmonies. The majestic "Run to Me" starts with Barry sounding top-notch as Brandi Carlile—her honeyed croon as excellent as ever—joins in for Robin Gibb's gilded part on the chorus. When she jumps up a register or two on lines like "And when you've got nothing to lose," it's chill-inducing and Bee Gees-worthy. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electro group in history, founded by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, who died of cancer on May 6, 2020, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition and stage performance, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotion and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.

Fleetwood Mac: The Blues Period

Fleetwood Mac led two consecutive lives: a blues-driven outfit from the 1960s led by Peter Green, one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, and another, a pop-rock band that became one of the most acclaimed groups of its era. Their 1977 album, “Rumours”, remains, forty years later, one of the best-selling records of all time and yet the band’s lesser-known early years are no less captivating.
