Bee Gees' 1st is the third studio album by the pop band the Bee Gees, released in July 1967. Despite the album's title, it was not their first full-length recording; it was, however, their first album to be released internationally, as their first two LPs were only available in Australia and New Zealand. Bee Gees' 1st was the group's debut album for the UK Polydor label, and for the US Atco label. Bee Gees 1st was released in 14 July 1967 in the UK. In 9 August it entered the UK charts, on that same day, the album was released in the US, and it entered the US charts in 26 August. After its release, the band became more self-sufficient, producing and mixing many of their own releases.
Reflecting the group's early style, Bee Gees' 1st was a psychedelic rock album. The album cover was designed by Klaus Voormann who had previously done the cover for Revolver by the Beatles, Bee Gees 1st peaked at #7 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart and at #8 on the UK Albums Chart. In 2006, Reprise Records (sister label to Atco under Warner Music Group) reissued Bee Gees 1st with both stereo and mono mixes on one disc and a bonus disc of unreleased songs and alternate takes.

“Like the bee that now is blown,
Honey-heavy on my hand,
From his toppling tansy-throne
In the green tempestuous land”
