It was a long night with lots of nostalgia

With threat of rain for Friday evening, a threat I take seriously given Barry Gibb is playing the outdoor shed Jones Beach and I have intention whatsoever of sitting around getting soaked for hours on end, and therefore may miss a gig I’ve been zooming on for months now, it seemed like a good time to check out the set list
It could well be the last time for Barry Gibb as well so a package that finds Barry with a couple of second generation Bee Gees supporting him, has forced me out to the wilds of Long Island’s Jones Beach on Friday. Will it be worth? I’ll be shocked if the harmonies are anything great but attempting them is their birth right.
1971 was a great year for what we now call classic rock – Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and The Who all released indispensable albums. Boiling down 1971 to 20 A+ tracks was no easy feat – my apologies to the Chi-Lites and the Stylistics, among others.
How Deep Is Your Love – Bee Gees – Exquisitely perfect disco ballad that changed the Gibbs brothers once and for all and the best line? “And you may not think I care for you when you know down inside that I really do” – A+
