1975's Main Course on vinyl LP!
Includes "Jive Talkin'" "Nights On Broadway" and "Fanny (Be Tender With My Love)"
Remastered from the original analog tapes at Capitol Studios by Kevin Bartley and Ian Sefchick
On May 8, Capitol/Universal Music Enterprises is set to release five remastered LPs from the storied catalog of the Bee Gees, one of music's most legendary and acclaimed groups.
June 1975's Main Course, one of the most significant albums in the Bee Gees catalog, marked a new direction for the group, and in turn created the model for their output throughout the rest of the 1970s by featuring a fresh, R&B-meets-pop sound. Recorded in Miami, Florida, and produced by the legendary Arif Mardin, the album's infectious No. 1 hit, "Jive Talkin'," carries a rhythm inspired by the sound the group's car made on the 163rd Street Causeway Bridge as they drove to and from the recording sessions being held at the fabled Criteria Studios. With Main Course, Mardin and the Gibb brothers continued to explore the use of synthesizers instead of strings in their arrangements. It's also the first album where Barry Gibb's hallmark falsetto is most prominent, showcasing the impressive depth of his vocal range. The album's other hit singles include the dramatic "Nights On Broadway" and the always touching "Fanny (Be Tender With My Love)."
The Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb, one of the most successful songwriting teams of all time — have long earned their stature as one of the world's most popular and bestselling groups ever. Having recorded 22 studio albums and for numerous soundtracks, including November 1977's monumentally successful Saturday Night Fever, the Bee Gees infused popular culture with dozens of worldwide hit singles that featured their singular and highly influential three-part harmonies. They achieved nine Number Ones and 23 Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including "How Deep Is Your Love," "Night Fever," and "Stayin' Alive" from Saturday Night Fever, in addition to hitting charts around the world with many other classics, including "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart," "I Started A Joke," "Lonely Days," "Words," and "You Win Again."
