Compact Disc Release

The first ever CD
Living Eyes was chosen to be the first ever album to be manufactured on CD for demonstration purposes, as seen on the BBC TV program Tomorrow’s World in 1981, and was featured on the inaugural issue of the Compact Disc trade magazine.[3] It was the first Bee Gees album to be released on CD, in early 1983 when compact discs were first commercially available, though few were manufactured. After RSO Records was absorbed by Polygram Records, Living Eyes, ever so ironically, was the only Bee Gees album in their catalog not to be released on CD in the late 1980s, and ultimately became quite rare. To date, there is no word on whether Rhino Records or Reprise Records (who have reissued much of the Bee Gees back catalogue in recent years) will re-release it on CD. The album is, however, available as a download from iTunes and other online services.
