50 St. Catherine's Drive is the seventh and final album by singer-songwriter Robin Gibb, released on September 29, 2014 in the United Kingdom and September 30, 2014 in the United States on Rhino Records. The album was named after an address in Isle of Man where Gibb and his family lived. The album was released two years after his death in 2012. The unreleased tracks were remastered at Red Bus Recording Studios in London. The album reached #70 in the United Kingdom and #39 in Germany.
By December 2007, Gibb told the BBC radio that he was working on a new studio album to release it in 2008. The new titles he mentioned are "Days of Wine and Roses" and later in February 2008, Gibb claimed in Dubai Radio that the song was a possible single. He also did a remake on "Avalanche" a 1970 song from his unreleased studio album Sing Slowly Sisters. In March 2008, Gibb revealed that he was working with Peter-John Vettese of Jethro Tull again since 2001.
A remake of "I Am the World" from 1966 which was written by himself, was rewritten with Vettese. "Alan Freeman Days" was previously released in Songs from the British Academy, Volume 1. The original version of "Instant Love" with Robin John Gibb on lead vocals was released on the soundtrack of Blood Type - The Search while the newer version of the song, that was included on this album features Robin singing the first verse and Robin-John singing the second verse (both on the chorus). "Sydney" was previously released as a single in 2011 the last song Gibb recorded in his lifetime.
