1970: "Lonely Days" by Bee Gees


The Brothers Gibb's story has a few chapters.  We've enjoyed each one of them!

Chapter 1 took place in Australia where they sang as kids and even recorded a few songs.

Chapter 2 is when they exploded on the US and world charts in 1967.  They recorded international hits like "Massachusetts", "I started a joke" and "To love somebody". (My favorite is still "Holiday")

Chapter 3 is when they split up. Thankfully, it was very short!

Chapter 4 was the "reunion"of late 1970.  It started with 'Lonely Days" and a very interesting "Two years on" album. Shortly after, it was followed by "How can you mend a broken heart" and "Run to me".

Chapter 5 is everything from "Jive Talkin", to "Too much heaven" and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack in between.  It was their most successful chapter.  It certainly sold a lot of records!

Chapter 6 were the solo efforts of the 1980s. It also included the songs and production of albums for Barbra Streisand ("Guilty"), Kenny Rogers ("Islands in the stream") and Dionne Warwick ("Heartbreaker').

Chapter 7 was a collection of nice albums up to Maurice's unfortunate death in 2003 and Robin dying in 2012.

"Lonely Days" is from Chapter 4 and released in November 1970.   

It was one of the best harmonies in rock music:
