Album Review

The next to last of the Bee Gee's "old-style" albums is one of their most fully realized works, with pleasing and memorable songs from beginning to end, and for a change this time, it's the single ("Run to Me"), rather than the surrounding tracks, that suffers from predictability. Another in a string of haunting ballads, it has a more plaintive, whining quality, and less of an ethereal feel than its predecessor, "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" — not that "Run to Me" isn't a lovely song, but it was possible to tire of hearing it on the radio faster than their prior singles. By contrast, the album's other tracks are all intensely melodic and varied enough in tempo and texture to make for very satisfying listening, "You Know It's for You" calling to mind Paul McCartney at his most accessible; the group plunges into relatively hard rock, with a heavy guitar sound, on "Bad Bad Dreams," and a country-ish sound on "Road to Alaska," before returning to a kind of post-psychedelic mode in "Sweet Song of Summer." The Bee Gees were pushing their credibility as a cohesive band more than ever, emphasizing Barry Gibb and Maurice Gibb's contributions to their instrumental sound and retaining guitarist Alan Kendall, who had debuted with them on the Trafalgar album and who would play with them for the next two decades. As it turned out, To Whom It May Concern was also the commercial swan song for the trio in this phase of their career, and the last of their albums to be released by Atlantic Records in the United States, something of an artistic peak before a period of massive change in their sound and future.

Customer Reviews

OK...Some Brillant Filler Here

If you just want the hits, buy a best of collection. However if you want to discover the impressive Bee Gees catalog , please read here. The brillant hard rock on "Bad Bad Dreams" is worth the price of admission alone. Also check out the pop gems; "You Know it's for You" and "Road to Alaska". You will not be disappointed unless you only want the hits!

Another Album With Only One Hit...

The rest was considered filler by the Los Angeles DJ's, who rarely played anything beyond the single "Run To Me". The Bee Gees were a group with great harmony, but no depth of material (at least not yet).

Farewell to the Bee Gees of old.

I took this album out of the library just when they were switching gears to JIVE TALKIN'. This was the Bee Gees I first got to know, and it has been a favorite ever since. It was the last of the big ballads with arranger Bill Shepherd, and the last before the switch to RSO records. There were even a couple of backwards nods to the earlier psychedelic Bee Gees, and YOU KNOW IT'S FOR YOU is as close as they came to sounding like the Moody Blues. The other hit that year, MY WORLD wasn't on the album, but with fourteen tracks, this is the fullest collection of the 70's. (except BEST OF BEE GEES Vol. 2, but that was a compilation)

Biography

Formed: 1958 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Relying on their top-notch songwriting and impeccable vocals, the Bee Gees were able to craft a long-running career that began in the late '50s in Australia. Along the way they became a hit-producing psychedelic pop group in England during the '60s, the biggest disco band in the world in the '70s, and had a late comeback as adult contemporary crooners in the '90s. Their long-reaching influence extended past sales figures and saw their sound and style mirrored in acts as disparate as Justin Timberlake...
