Cucumber Castle is the Bee Gees' fifth album, released in 1970. It was produced by Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb, and Robert Stigwood. It consists of songs from their television special of the same name. Cucumber Castle is the only Bee Gees album without Robin Gibb, as he had left the group before the album was recorded. Drummer Colin Petersen was fired during the recording of the album after he refused to appear in the non-musical scenes of Cucumber Castle.
