Bee Gees' 1st (Deluxe Version)

The debut international long-player by the Bee Gees may shock anyone who only remembers them for their mid- to late-'70s disco mega-hits, or their quirky early-'70s romantic balladry. Up until 1966, they'd shown a penchant for melodic songs and rich, high harmonies, in the process becoming Australia's answer to the Everly Brothers. When the Bee Gees arrived in London late in 1966, however, they proved quick studies in absorbing and assimilating the progressive pop and rock sounds around them. In one fell swoop, they became competitors with the likes of veteran rock bands such as the Hollies and the Tremeloes, and this long-player, Bee Gees' 1st, is more of a rock album than the group usually got credit for generating. Parts of it do sound very much like the Beatles circa Revolver, but there was far more to their sound than that. The three hits off of Bee Gees' 1st, "To Love Somebody," "New York Mining Disaster 1941," and "Holiday," were gorgeous but relatively somber, thus giving Bee Gees' 1st a melancholy cast, but much of the rest is relatively upbeat psychedelic pop. "In My Own Time" may echo elements of the Beatles' "Dr. Robert" and "Taxman," but it's difficult to dislike a song with such delicious rhythm guitars and a great beat, coupled with the trio's soaring harmonies; "Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You" was close in spirit to the Moody Blues of this era, opening with a Gregorian chant backed by a Mellotron, before breaking into a strangely spaced-out, psychedelic main song body. Robin Gibb's lead vocals veered toward the melodramatic and poignant, and the orchestra did dress up some of the songs a little sweetly, yet overall the group presented themselves as a proficient rock ensemble who'd filled their debut album with a full set of solid, refreshingly original songs. [In 2006, as part of the shift of the group's back catalog to Reprise Records, Bee Gees' 1st was reissued in remastered form, with seriously improved sound and expanded to two CDs with a brace of chronologically related outtakes — comprising some of the most fascinating material of their history — initially as part of the collection The Studio Albums 1967-1968.]

Geen enkele popact uit de jaren 60, 70, 80 of 90 heeft meer ups and downs in populariteit en een gevarieerdere fanschare gekend dan de BeeGees. In de tweede helft van de jaren 60 begonnen zij als een beatle-achtig gezelschap. Al snel ontwikkelden zij zich als songwriters en kregen een eigen stijl met een unieke, progressieve popsound. Begin jaren 70 ervoeren ze een dip in hun populariteit, maar voor de soundtrack van Saturday...
