(Entnews, April 2005)

On April 22, 2005, recording superstar Barry Gibb was officially welcomed back to the city of North Miami by councilman Scott Galvin. Mr. Gibb was in town producing a new album for Barbra Streisand at the Hit Factory Criteria. In the 1970s, The Hit Factory Criteria—formerly Criteria Recording Studios—was where Mr. Gibb, along with his brothers Robin and Maurice, recorded a half-a-dozen platinum albums. Among these was the Bee Gees’ milestone, Saturday Night Fever, the biggest-selling soundtrack album of all time.
Galvin presented Mr. Gibb with a commemorative sign for Brothers Gibb Boulevard, a section of NE 18th Avenue in North Miami that had been renamed last year for Barry, Robin and Maurice. Brothers Gibb Boulevard runs directly in front of The Hit Factory Criteria. The idea to rename the street originally belonged to Officer Tim Littlefield of the North Miami Police Department.
