Feed Us A Live InsectMonday, October 29, 2012
An hour of Laughs, Emotions, Hits, And Especially MagicHere's a sweet b&w bee gees show from 1971 in Australia. I hadn't really started listening to their pre-disco stuff until pretty recently, and one thing that I notice from this show is how many of their songs are ballads--um, basically, all of them. Pretty great ballads, but yeah. They're not exactly rocking hard here,
Still a great show--full orchestra! Harps! To Love Somebody sounds great...and this my favorite version of Spicks and Specks (their very first Australian hit).
Also--I did not realize, until watching these shows, that Maurice's name is pronounced "Morris."
Bee Gees show this Monday at the EchoI haven't written enough about this, but our next show is this one, which is happening Monday night at The Echo:
Each of us is going as a particular Bee Gee, although we aren't necessarily playing the same instruments as the individual brothers did (since none of the Gibbs played drums). Can you guess who will be Barry?
See you on Monday!
PS: anyone know where we can get some really tight satin pants?
PPS: I'm pleased to note that there are a whole bunch of complete Bee Gees live shows up on youtube at the moment--I've been enjoying this 1974 Melbourne show quite a bit, particularly the random b-roll footage of them riding around on horses, and Maurice's velvet/planets blazer ensemble.
