Another album, The Ultimate Bee Gees - makes its first appearance in the Top 200 for more than a year, re-entering at 35.

Meanwhile, the pop singer's family is reportedly planning a memorial at St Paul's Cathedral, organised by his wife Dwina. Gibb was born in England but raised in Australia and started the Bee Gees along with his two brothers - Barry and Maurice. The trio rose to fame in the 1970s, with the soundtrack for the film Saturday Night Fever (1977). The band also delivered disco hits like How Deep Is Your Love, Stayin' Alive and Night Fever.

"This will be the biggest send-off since the death of John Lennon," a close associate of the family was quoted as saying in The Sun, adding, "Robin was so very highly regarded in the industry and this will be reflected in the turnout. Robin boys, Spencer and Robin-John, are also working on ideas for their dad's farewell."
