Bee Gee's January 1968

I was so sad to wake up this morning to the news of Robin Gibb's passing, the Bee Gee's early music certainly was one of the soundtracks to my teenage years.

My best friend and I saw them on January 27, 1968 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.  We had both just turned fourteen and loved the Bee Gee's first single, "New York Mining Disaster".  It was their very first concert in the United States.  The line up was Vanilla Fudge, Spanky & Our Gang and the Bee Gee's.   


  1. Sorry to hear of his passing, too. Enjoyed the video.

  2. My parents had that album pictured above. I didn't appreciate their music until about 10 years ago; now they're amongst my favourite artists.
    Very sad for his family.
