A decade before the Saturday Night Fever years, the Bee Gees were writing classic songs that endure to this day.
A welcome addition to our Songwriter series, these recordings span the full range from the early Australian Leedon/Spin period to the soul, psych and classic pop of their 1967-1970 heyday.
The top soul artists of the time would queue up to record Gibb Brothers compositions – Al Green, Percy Sledge, James Carr, Nina Simone, Bettye Swann and others put their personal stamp on these instantly recognisable songs.
More contemporary interpretations of psych classics by Goon Moon and Sidewalk Society stand alongside lovers rock outings by Pat Kelly and John Holt.
Iconic 60s Brit-pop girls are represented by rarely heard performances from Lulu and Sandie Shaw.
