The Bee Gees remasters

Already available from Rhino.
Haven't posted in a while but I found something different to write about.  The Bee Gees have a number of albums that have yet to be reissued or even released at all officially.  Solo included.

Bee Gees
Cucumber Castle
2 Years On (most recent find)
To Whom It May Concern (next to last one I sent away which led to this post)
Life in a Tin Can
A Kick in the Head is Worth Eight in the Pants*
Mr Natural (last one needed for Boris on its own; now in the newly released 1974-1979 boxed set)
Here at Last (live)
Living Eyes
Staying Alive soundtrack
Size Isn't Everything

Barry Gibb
The Kid's No Good*
Now Voyager
Hawks soundtrack
Moonlight Madness/Original Hawks*
In the Now (may delay any other solo (re-) release for the time being)

Robin Gibb
Robins Reign (now part of new posthumous solo boxed set Saved by the Bell)
Sing Slowly Sisters (also in new compilation)
How Old Are You?
Secret Agent
Walls Have Eyes
My Favourite Christmas Carols

Maurice Gibb
The Loner*
Strings and Things*
A Breed Apart soundtrack*

Andy Gibb (although he never lived to formally join the band)
Flowing Rivers
Shadow Dancing
After Dark

*previously unreleased except on bootleg

The solo albums for each brother could appear as respective boxed sets.
Warner Music handle all distribution except In the Now by Sony save Russia where Warner happen to distribute them anyway.

Two Years On: The ancillary rights have just moved to Capitol Records/UMC bringing them back to Universal (which bought much of EMI in 2013).  Reissues are likely set to appear in 2017 in time for the 50th anniversary of the bands international breakthrough.  Sister label Polydor could possibly be attached as a result like my LP copy of Milk & Honey from John & Yoko.
