ROBIN GIBB 1949 - 2012

Robin Gibb’s final work, The Titanic Requiem, was released on March 30, 2012.  A classical album marking the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the legendary ocean liner, the project was composed by Robin and his son Robin-John and performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. 

Unfortunately, Robin was not well enough to attend the debut performance of The Titanic Requiem. However, Robin sings lead on one track of the recording, “Don't Cry Alone”, and as unusual as the musical setting might be, the voice is unmistakable.

The song has now been released by Warner Music as a single.

  • Any chance that Kevin & jane could wish Sharon Saunders a Happy birthday for Sunday 27th, and play her "True love never runs smooth" by Gene Pitney? It would mean a lot to me if you could.
