Size Isn’t Everything is the Bee Gees’ twentieth studio album (eighteenth worldwide), released in the UK on 13 September 1993, and the US on 2 November of the same year. The album marked the Bee Gees’ return to Polydor Records after their three-album contract with Warner Bros. Records.
The album was recorded following a time of considerable strain for the Gibb brothers. Maurice had only recently managed to overcome his long-term struggle with alcoholism and Barry Gibb’s wife and prematurely newborn daughter both suffered ill health. Barry himself was also scheduled to have back surgery.
Then on 5 March 1992, the brothers’ father, Hugh Gibb, died. The date coincided with the birthday of their late brother Andy, who had died in 1988. The album was dedicated to Hugh.
Work on the album began in 1992. The brothers abandoned the contemporary dance feel of the previous album High Civilization and went for what they would describe as “A return to our sound before Saturday Night Fever“.
