  1. For a minute there, I thought the little girl said “buggery”. Talk about upsetting the Florida folk. I actually foundvtgat song a bit tiresome but the people who created it back then must be steaming now. I really enjoyed hearing the early Bee Gees before they hot punched in the jewels. I enjoyed all as per norm even the talking one


    1. I had to figure out you were talking about the Tom Clay musical collage. There were a few “songs” like that back in the day, though one doesn’t immediately come to mind.

      Barry was the only Bee Gee that sang in falsetto like that, but then he dominated their records in the disco days. Robin had an excellent voice, as did Maurice, who spent most of his time at the keyboards. I love their stuff from the ’60’s and early ’70’s.
