"Gilbert Green" is a song written by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb in 1966 in Australia. And it was recorded by the Bee Gees in November 1966 sessions (before they returned to England in early 1967) on which the group recorded other songs like "Deeply, Deeply Me", "Mrs. Gillespie's Refrigerator" and "I Can't See Nobody".[2] The song was produced by Robert Stigwood and Ossie Byrne.

The Bee Gees re-recorded this song around April 1967 with "Mr. Wallor's Wailing Wall", "House of Lords", "End of My Song", "To Love Somebody", "Holiday" and "Harry Braff" while they recorded other songs for Bee Gees' 1st, but this song was not used, and finally released in 2006 on The Studio Albums: 1967-1968 and used as a bonus track for the remastered version of Bee Gees' 1st.[3] Lead vocals by Robin Gibb. The song starts with only a guitar played by Barry Gibb at 0:43, the drums was started, with a backing vocals by Barry and Robin. The band performs this song in Switzerland in 1968.
