Bee Gees

I have been sitting on this one for a while. I mean who willingly admits to liking the Bee Gees? Generally they are regarded as one of those hidden pleasures that you listen to alone in a darkened room with the shades drawn to preserve your critical respectability.
Put on the white suit load up the cd player with Saturday Night Fever and do a turn on your light up dancefloor pretending to be a younger more attractive John Travolta.

In any case that was the Bee Gees that I was familiar with. As my father put it "That was when they started using helium right?"

I bought this album on a recommendation and was completely surprised with its sound. This was recorded in the late 60s and has an unmistakable Beatles influence in a lot of the songs. The arrangements are awesome and it is just an all around good album. The track I am posting is one of the more obvious, but there are tons more great tunes inside.
