Let's look back at The Bee Gees and their "FIRST" LP released July 1967!
What did we learn from that debut LP?
For one thing, there were 5 Bee Gees back then. It was the 3 brothers and a couple of friends from Australia. Eventually, the friends dropped off and it was The Brothers Gibb the rest of the way.
Barry, and his late brothers Robin & Maurice Gibb, were great songwriters. It was the opening chapter for one of the greatest songwriting trios in modern pop music.
FIRST's songs were catchy, beautiful and always thoughtful.
