The legendary Bee Gees’ star Robin Gibb is remembered by his wife Dwina Gibb. She collaborated with Manx Post Office and Warner/Reprise Records to commemorate Robin’s music and his memory in an album package that is truly unforgettable.

Robin Gibb grew up in the Isle of Man - an island in Douglas, along with his brother: Maurice and Barry. ’50 Catherine Drive - their address on the island is still known as the home of the Bee Gees. In April 2013, the Douglas Council commemorated ’50 Catherine Drive with a blue plaque on the door as the original home of the Gibb brothers.

The Manx Post Office authorities went down to the island to meet Dwina Gibb, the late star’s widow. Together Dwina and the office have produced a stunning album comprising of Robin’s music that he performed in his solo career. Back in 1969, Robin announced that he was leaving the Bee Gees. 

Robin Gibb sang hit songs like “Saved by the Bell” after that and produced some great songs like “Love for Living” which was performed by Clare Tory. He collaborated with his brother Maurice over the years for different songs. His solo career stretches from 1969 till his death. 

The Post Office, in partnership with Warner/Reprise Records and Dwina Gibb has released an album comprising of solo tracks by Robin. The album is accompanied by an Isle of Man Post Office limited edition DVD, a booklet that contains an extract from Robin’s biography and a special booklet containing a thousand stamps of Robin Gibb. 

One thousand of these special edition booklets contain a special insert signed by Dwina Gibb and postmarked with a special silver foil cancellation for September 29, 2014. This special edition collection is encased within a jeweled box. 

There are only a thousand jeweled boxes for sale. Each box has a net worth of £22.50. Robin’s family has requested that the royalties are to be donated to Rebecca’s House. It is a children’s hospice on the island. 

Dwina said that Robin would have been really pleased with the commemorative album, DVD and stamps from the Isle of Man. He was really proud of his home and the Isle of Man is equally proud that Robin was a part of their community.
