Released:
Label: Bee Gees/Reprise
The disco-era Bee Gees so defined the times that their previous incarnation as trippy, baroque (yet rocking) chart toppers was all but forgotten. That's a shame, because this grand mix of Beatles psychedelia, Kinks kitchen sink drama and the band's own brand of majestic melancholy remains one of the key albums of the late 1960s. The big radio hit was the morose "New York Mining Distaster 1941" but the lasting number is "To Love Somebody." Barry Gibb wrote the song specifically for Otis Redding and recorded it after his new friend's death. The song quickly became a soul standard.
