Frankly, I don’t remember watching the first show but I became a fan quickly.  It is a great show!
Happy birthday to “Saturday Night Live”.  I loved it back then specially Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Garrett Morris, Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman.
Wow!  Lots of memories of those shows!

July 1975 and I thought that The Bee Gees were singing "Child talking".....

Back in the summer of 1975, Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb hit the top of the international charts with "Jive Talkin"!   I remember hearing the song on the radio and thinking that the title was "Child talkin'".   

It was the # 1 song in the US, and much of the world, in mid-August 1975!   It turned out to be one of the biggest hits of 1975 and another gem in the amazing story of these very talented Gibb brothers!   This song is also from "Main Course", my favorite of the 1970's albums.

Barry does the lead. Maurice & Robin do great backup vocals.

Click for a digital version of the song.......it sounds super!

"Country lanes", one of the best ones from The Bee Gees


"Country Lanes" was released June 1975 as one of a dozen new tunes from the Main Course album.   

It was the B-side of "Fanny, be tender with my love", released as the 3rd top 10 single out of that great album. I recall playing it many times at the school cafeteria jukebox.

Unfortunately, it was buried along big hits like "Jive Talkin" and "Nights on Broadway".

There were so many great songs on Main Course, including "Come on Over" which was recorded by Olivia Newton-John, "Wind of Change", and "At the edge of the universe".

Years later, "Country Lanes" is still one of my favorite Bee Gees' songs.
