LOS ANGELES, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Warner Music Group has big plans for the Bee Gees' upcoming 30th anniversary of 1977's "Saturday Night Fever," it was reported Monday.

Warner's Rhino Entertainment is putting a worldwide deal together to release original master recordings and unreleased material from Barry, Robin and the late Maurice Gibb, the Los Angeles Times said.

The Bee Gees' original studio recordings span from 1965 through 2001, but the trio's most memorable period was in the 1970s with hits like "Stayin' Alive," "You Should Be Dancing," "Night Fever," "Tragedy" and "Jive Talkin'."

Rhino Entertainment's Scott Pascucci said the project will delve deeper into the Australian band's history and 1960s music.

"When you have a truly great group, which the Bee Gees are, you want to give a full context from the beginning of their career to the present, and I don't think that has been done with the Bee Gees," he said.
