The details have arrived from the Isle of Man Post Office about the exclusive "50 St. Catherine's Drive" package.

You can order this special set, that was released on September 29, here.

Tribute to legendary artist Robin Gibb with the release of a limited edition of the album 50 St Catherine's Drive including CD, DVD and stamp set with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dwina Gibb

Isle of Man Post Office is honoured to present a limited edition collection that reflects on the legendary solo career of Robin Gibb CBE.

Released on September 29th, the "50 St Catherine's Drive" album, named by Robin to commemorate his first home on the Isle of Man, features many of Robin's last compositions and recordings as a solo artist.

Isle of Man Post Office in partnership with Robin Gibb's widow, Dwina Gibb and Warner/Reprise Records, has released a unique collection that combines a CD of Robin's final solo album, 50 St Catherine's Drive, together with an Isle of Man Post Office limited edition DVD, a special booklet containing an extract from Robin's biography and a booklet containing a full set of Robin Gibb stamps. This special limited edition of 1000 also contains an insert signed by Dwina Gibb and postmarked with a special silver foil cancellation for September 29th 2014. Everything is contained beautifully within a CD jewel case.

The product is a stunning tribute to Robin's career and life, rendered with high quality photography and design that is beautifully brought together into a commemorative package.  Limited to just 1000 copies it is a truly unique collectible item that you will not find anywhere else.

Price: 22.50 U.K. pounds (including shipping and postage)

 

A donation from each sale will go to local charity Rebecca House that Robin opened in 2008. 

50 St Catherine's Drive is of great significance in that it was the former home of the Gibb family in Douglas, Isle of Man. In April 2013 the address was recognised by Douglas Borough Council as the childhood home of Robin Gibb and his brothers, and was commemorated with a blue plaque on the front door.

 "Robin always loved the Isle of Man and he would have been especially pleased with this commemorative album, DVD and stamp package produced in the place of his birth." (Dwina Gibb)

"Everyone on the Island is immensely proud that Robin called the Isle of Man his home. The Island was his birthplace with 50 St Catherine's Drive being his childhood home. We are pleased to take any opportunity to celebrate Robin's life and music." (Maxine Cannon, General Manager of Isle of Man Stamps and Coins)

We have received enquiries about this special release, and here are the answers to the two most asked questions: The DVD in this package is the same as that released in 2013 by the Isle of Man Post Office.  And, no, the "signed" copies are not signed by Robin but Dwina and RJ Gibb.
