After hearing about the passing of music legend Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, I thought it would be good to pay tribute to the music of the Brothers Gibb this Saturday night.  I personally love their earlier hits and ballads, however, we will spin a couple from all of their years as hit makers.  Here is a piece that appeared on Kent Kotal's Forgotten HIts website.

 

CHERRY HILL, NJ – 
 
 
Robin Gibb will forever be remembered for his brilliant contribution with his brothers to the seminal “disco” soundtrack, “Saturday Night Fever.” The irony, however, is that those songs were written by the Bee Gees well before any thought about the movie, or disco. Robin and his brothers totally mastered the skills in writing upbeat music for the fast dancers. And their pride as songwriters exceeded their pride as singers.
 
 
Most of the disco hits you’ll never hear again, because they didn’t have legs, as we say in show business. But numbers count, and the Bee Gees had 29 Top 40 hits over 22 years. Like their disco era contemporary, Donna Summer, that high level of longevity doesn’t come around too often.
