The Last Studio Album
Martin A Hogan | San Francisco, CA. (Hercules) | 05/30/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)
""After Dark" is Andy Gibb's last studio album and all the songs were written or co-written by brother Barry. Andy only contributed writing on two sings. No matter. All ten songs showcase his singing talents. The Gibb brothers all sing together on the top hit "Desire" and Andy handles a nice duet, "I Can't Help It", with old family friend, Olivia Newton-John. Rock/Funkiness shines through on songs, "Wherever You Are", "Warm Ride" and the title track. Most of the remaining songs are true Gibb tearjerkers, but "Dreamin' On" is a stand out and a great finale. Not a bad swan song at all."
A must for Andy Gibb & Bee Gees Fans

"I had this album on record when it first came out and like any Bee Gees one I held it in high regard. I have all of Andy's albums and thankfully Polygram decided to reissue them on CD a few years back. This is definately my favorite (apart from the Greatest hits package which is also available through Amazon). The hits here are outstanding; After Dark, Desire (like listening to the Bee Gees with Andy) & Desire. Also the fantastic duets with Olivia Newton John : I can't help it & Rest Your'e Love on Me. the later was also recorded for the Bee Gees Greatest album by his brothers. My favorite tracks Wherever You Are & Warm Ride. They capture Andy at his best with big brother Barry on backgroud vocals. Warm Ride is the song the Bee Gees penned for Graham Bonnet, but listening to this version you would think it was mean't for Andy. I love both versions, but this one is just so special. Like with any of Andy's albums, expect great compositions from the Gibb brothers, production from Barry Gibb and you have great listening. As a Bee Gees and Andy Gibb fan I see this as an essential part of my collection."
Andy third and final album of all-original recordings

"In early 1980,Andy Gibb's third and final album of all-original recordings was released. Andy's contract with RSO records was nearing expiration and was never renewed. In November 1980,his final hit TIME IS TIME debuted on the radio,according to Norm N. Nite's Rock On Almanac. That song was either an outtake from this album or recorded after the release of this album. Around 1980,Andy was romantically involved with actress Victoria Principal,who was then a cast member of the CBS drama DALLAS. Hits from this album include:I CAN'T HELP IT,a duet with Olivia Newton-John(ONJ is courtesy of MCA Records) and DESIRE,with moral support from Andy's brother Barry. Also there's REST YOUR LOVE ON ME which was also recorded by the Bee Gees themselves and the late Conway Twitty. Sadly,Andy's career was slowly starting to falter. He had a cocaine and heroin addiction that would last until his death in 1988. As the eighties began,there was less mention of him in teen magazines than in 1977 to '79. All the other songs are good."
