BEE GEES

A trip down memory lane when the Bee Gees once sang: “Yesterday was history who knows what there is gonna be when we meet again/Will you smile and tell the world about me…”

  2. Wonderful set from an underrated, undercovered part of their legendary career. “Run To Me” (much bigger hit in Philadelphia than the rest of the country in its chart run) gave me goosebumps when I heard it. Historic performance catches them at the last pages on an era before disco changed them and us forever. Thanks!

  3. For what it is worth, this week I pulled down this, the Beatles, Billie Eilish, and Bill Evans. May go back for Little Feat and the Smashing Pumpkins.

  4. If you would like to see the video of this special. Similar specials were done for ABBA and the Carpenters.

  5. Agree with most of what you said Tony Pizza . But Billie Elish ???? Really ? May as well pull down Miley Cyrus too .

    By Bill on Aug 31, 2019

  6. Smashing Pumpkins? OK I guess , but no Led Zeppelin by any stretch of the imagination. In fact no one today compares to the past greats . Loved The Bee Gees pre disco . 75 with main course changed everything and by Saturday night fever they sounded completely different

    By Bill on Aug 31, 2019

  7. My favorite time period was 71 thru around 74 . Loved the albums Two years on and Trafalgar. Remember the song Lonely Days in the spring of 71 and HCYMABH that summer. Was a scared teen who had just lost his Imediate family living in a one room apt on my own for the first time . Remember listening to my small radio and that song was played almost every hour . Amazing how certain songs take you back to a certain time in your life .

    By Bill on Aug 31, 2019

  8. Summer of 71 also brings back memories of Tommy James Draggin the line .. McCartneys Uncle Albert Admiral Halsey , Liar by three dog night , Carpenters Rainy days and Mondays It’s too late Carole King . Fond memories. This was AM top 100 radio too . When great music was always at your dial . What memories.

    By Bill on Aug 31, 2019

  9. I pulled down Billie Eilish because I want to be conversant with today’s music and see what the fuss is about. Miley Cyrus is a tinkling cymbal far more known for being a wild child than a legitimate performer.

    By Tony Pizza on Aug 31, 2019

  10. Forgot, also pulled down the Derek & The Dominoes set from Monday. Those are VERY rare and highly controlled.

    By Tony Pizza on Aug 31, 2019

  11. The Bee Gees gave me such a hardon.

    By Mark on Aug 31, 2019

  12. I would go down on Barry Gibb in a heart beat. Back in the day, I jacked off to his pictures from Saturday Night Fever. I had such a man crush on him

    By Mark on Aug 31, 2019

  13. Bee Gees and others covering only Beatles songs were the soundtrack for the bizarre film All This And World War II, which featured NAZI! war footage and film of the leaders of the Allies and Axis powers set to Beatles music performed by many rock artists of 1976 when the film was released for only 2 weeks, then yanked from all theaters. I saw it at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood.

    By ScarRad on Aug 31, 2019

  14. The Bee Gees in 1978, also to poor reviews, portrayed the titular band in “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. There were roles played by many rock artists of the day, with songs from Sgt. Pepper and - I’ll pull a Joe Biden anecdote here - one of the last Beatles albums.

    By ScarRad on Aug 31, 2019

  15. I also saw that Sgt. Pepper film at the Cinerama Dome. But I did see one great film there - The Buddy Holly Story, starring of all people, in a fantastic performance of a lifetime, Gary Busey.

    By ScarRad on Aug 31, 2019

  16. And Gary sang all the songs himself. No lipsync or having someone else sing the songs - he did it all.

    By ScarRad on Aug 31, 2019

  17. Thanks for this quality Bee Gees show! Like the TV audio show from a few years ago (1970?), they still cannot enter together to start a song, all of them hesitating to see who is coming in…

    That said, the sound is good, their harmonies as good as the commercial studio recordings (if not as well balanced), and the song selection is a good one.

    Much appreciated, BigO!

  18. Like the Bee Gees a lot. Great vocals from Barry and the Goofy-looking one

    By El Santo on Aug 31, 2019

  19. Sad that Barry is the last brother still with us .Wonder how he feels having lost all of his brothers . RIP Marice , Robin and Andy

    By Bill on Aug 31, 2019

  20. Rumor has it this was a band of Lil Uns

    By U L E on Aug 31, 2019

  21. This was the 70s but it ain’t no classic rock ‘ thats for fuckin sure . Better that all the shit today ‘ but it ain’t no where as good as Cactus Uhria Heep , Sabbath , The Stones ‘ The Who and Zeppelin. Get with the program. Right Anti ?

    By Derrick on Aug 31, 2019

  22. This ain’t shit. No drum solo. The best think about classic rock is the drum solo Right Anti ?

    By Derrick on Aug 31, 2019

  23. Fuck you . Never said that . Get some other name mother fucker . Like Bee Gees . Just said that they weren’t no classic rock that’s all

    By Derrick on Aug 31, 2019

  24. Please don’t tell me they’re all Jews . I really want to download this .

    By Nelson on Aug 31, 2019

  25. You got it Derrick. Never a Bee Gees Fan. Cactus, Purple, Zep, Humble Pie, Savoy Brown, Canned Heat, The Who, Yardbirds, Hendrix, Tull, Stones, ELP, The Nice, Rick Wakeman not Yes, Pink Floyd

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  26. Robin Gibb was a Jew, but not practicing. He and his brothers Maurice, Brian, Barry and Andrew were born to a Jewish mother, Barbara Pass and a non-Jewish father Hugh Gibb.

    Maurice Gibb was buried from a Jewish Funeral Home on Miami Beach - I know - I was there!

    Mother was Jewish making all 4 brothers Jewish.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  28. Damn gotta pass again . Guess I should ask , who’s not a Jew .

    By Nelson on Aug 31, 2019

  29. The Gibbs real last name was Gibberwitz

    By T J on Aug 31, 2019

  30. They are like the commies in the 50s .In the sink all the closets ‘ under the beds ‘ the garage ‘ in the car trunks even the toilet bowl as that scum Jew poet Mr Zimmerman once diclaired in John Birch society blues .

    By T J on Aug 31, 2019

  31. We need Senator Joe McCarthy today to round up all the jews ‘ just like he rounded up the Red Menace in those 50s congressional hearings . Are you a Jew . Have you ever been a Jew . Do you know Jews .

    By T J on Aug 31, 2019

  32. All Jews- Theres a website called Jewish Or Not

    Harrison Ford
    Scarlett Johansson

    Natalie Portman
    Mila Kunis

    Daniel Radcliffe

    Adam Sandler

    Rashida Jones

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  33. the Doors
    Robby Krieger, the Doors’ guitarist, may be the only Jewish Door, but his contribution to the band came from a very different cultural tradition. Krieger studied Indian music at UCLA and met Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek at a meditation session. The Doors formed soon after, in 1965, and found instant success with their single “Light My Fire” in 1967. Their first, self-titled album was enormously popular. While the band continued playing together for the next four years, they were never able to release an album that was quite so gorgeously dark and rich.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  34. LA Woman , their last album was pretty dark . The changeling , Riders on the storm . The song LA Woman was one of the best rock songs ever .

    By Bill on Aug 31, 2019

  35. I thought Rashida Jones was mixed . Her father is Quincy Jones , Mom Peggy ( Mod Squad ) Lipton .

    By T J on Aug 31, 2019

  36. Her mother is Ashkenazi Jewish (a descendant of Jewish emigrants from Russia and Latvia). Rashida Jones and her sister were raised in Reform Judaism by their mother; Jones attended Hebrew school, though she left at the age of ten and did not have a Bat Mitzvah. Jones grew up in Los Angeles’ Bel Air neighborhood

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  37. Just learned a few things today. Never knew she was Jewish and she is deceased. I loved her in Mod Squad. She reminds me of Michelle Phillips

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  38. Fuck!!!!! Michelle Phillips is Jewish. Michelle Phillips (born Holly Michelle Gilliam; June 4, 1944) is an American singer, All four of her grandparents were Russian Jewish immigrants.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  39. I knew Mama Cass was Hebrew. Michelle is still a hottie

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 31, 2019

  40. Thank you bigo for this great concert!!!

    By rochacrimson on Aug 31, 2019

  41. I guess I should be flattered that someone admires me enough to post under my name in comments.

    By Mark on Aug 31, 2019

  42. Michelle Phillips was quite the connoisseur of famous men .John Phillips obviously ‘ also band memberDenny Daugherty .which devastated Cass who had a thing for Denny . Also Michelle bedded down with Peter Fonda ‘ Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson doing the Easy Rider trifecta. She was Warren Beatty’s main squeeze in the mid seventies among many others . Michelle got around . Guys gravitated to her for obvious reasons. Gorgeous as hell .

    By Bill on Sep 1, 2019

  43. Warren Beatty obviously a notorious womanizer himself.. His list of famous conquests reads like a who’s who of Hollywood and also the music industry. He even dated Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon . Your so vain was written about Warren .

    By Bill on Sep 1, 2019

  44. Michelle also had a fling with Gene Clark of the Byrds .

  45. So glad the song Massachusetts was included here. It is a song about the Salem witch trials and how it spread to San Francisco and started the whole Flower Power thing. In the old days we were allowed to hang, burn or toss witches in the river. (Witches float). But nowadays Witches follow me & my wife to McDonalds and when we go to the picture show the witches put their green hair in my popcorn. They follow me everywhere.

  47. Jews are some cheep fuckers . Every Jew over 70 has got a quarter from the first dollar he ever made . I’m in construction and always hated working for Jews because they’re so damn cheep .

    By Rich on Sep 1, 2019

  48. Also hate working for blacks . Any problems with the job and they always pull the race card . True story. I once did some work on a black lady’s house . We got along fine and she was happy with the work . A few years later I noticed she had some black dudes doing some work . When I asked her why she didn’t call me , she said that although she was happy with my work , she preferred to use black people . She called me a few months later wanting me to fix the mess the black guy made . Said he did a shitty job . Blacks are just as prejudiced as white are .

    By Rich on Sep 1, 2019

  49. Black women are worse than black dudes , most are uptight and pissed off most of the time .

    By Rich on Sep 1, 2019

  50. Black women are pissed off because all the black guys are giving that 15 inch Mississippi black snake to white baby dolls . They are losing their men

    By C Tony on Sep 1, 2019

  51. The Bee Gees all had very small Cocs, but were very sweet guys so i tried to overlook that huge disapointment. The did take turns going down on me which was very satisfying.This all took place in 1976 backstage of course.

    By Bebe on Sep 1, 2019

  52. Hey Anti, doncha know, only homos and deviants don’t dig Yes and the Floyd?

    So which are you?
