"Spicks and Specks": The Bee Gees' first big hit!




We continue to look back at the amazing career of Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb.

The brothers celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2010, although they stopped recording after Maurice's death in 2003.    Robin died in 2012.

In 1966, Barry was 19 and Robin & Maurice were 17.

After several years of recording and TV appearances in Australia, The Bee Gees recorded their first big hit:  "Spicks and Specks".

Barry did the lead vocals. "Spicks and specks" got the brothers into the European charts and set the table for their international success in 1967.    It was not heard in the US but got them to London and their first recording session with Robert Stigwood.
