The Bee Gees and more very early hits



The Bee Gees, or The Brothers Gibb, started singing professionally in 1960 when Barry was 14 and his twin brothers were 11.


As we've mentioned in other posts, these tunes, such as "Wine and women" & "Monday's rain" were recorded when the brothers were teens and trying to establish themselves as a pop group.

These songs were never heard outside of Australia until ATCO released two LP's of the early material in 1969. The LP's were called "Rare, precious and beautiful"!

Nevertheless, they were very early signals of their incredible harmonies and songwriting potential.

It was these songs, and others, that persuaded Robert Stigwood to give the brothers an international recording contract in London 1967.

The rest is musical history......Barry was 19 and his brothers were 16 when they had their first international hit, i.e. "Spicks and specks".
