<!-- Automatically generated by DASHBot-->After Dark
is an album by Andy Gibb
. It was his final studio album, and was released in 1980.
With drugs impeding his previous ability to write and even fully sing the tracks on his own record, Gibb was only able to forge his performance with nearly intrusive support from brother Barry
. In March 1980 the last of Gibb's Top Ten singles charted just ahead of the album's release. "Desire" was originally recorded for the Bee Gees
' 1979 album Spirits Having Flown
but had Andy record new lead vocals replacing those of Barry's. A second single, "I Can't Help It", a duet with family friend Olivia Newton-John
, reached the Top Twenty.
The album's poor performance, coupled with Gibb's mounting drug problems, would lead to RSO Records
dropping Gibb from its roster. On VH1's Behind the Music
, label founder Robert Stigwood
said that he was heartbroken at having to make the decision to drop Gibb, but that his behaviour gave him very little choice.
Although the album is not currently in print, it was released to iTunes
