Robin Gibb wrote ‘‘Come Some Christmas Eve (Or Halloween)’ around the time of the fifth Bee Gees album ‘Idea’ in 1968. The Bee Gees version of the song remained unreleased until the 2006 expanded reissue of ‘Idea’.

Vince left the Bee Gees around the same time as Colin Petersen and shares credits on the same album.

Albums Vince and Colin played on were ‘Bee Gees 1st’ (1967), ‘Horizontal’ (1968), ‘Idea’ (1968), ‘Odessa’ (1969) and some of the tracks on ‘Cucumber Castle’ (1970).

They were also on the hit songs ‘Holiday’, ‘To Love Somebody’, ‘Every Christian Lion-Hearted Man Will Show You’, ‘New York Mining Disaster 1941’ (1967), ‘Words’, ‘World’, ‘Massachusetts’ , ‘I Started A Joke’, ‘I’ve Got To Get A Message To You’ (1968), ‘First of May’ (1969) and ‘IOIO’ (1970). Both left before ‘Lonely Days’ later in 1970.
