Bee Gees

Tomorrow, Tomorrow: Rumours were circulating in the corridors of pop that only Robert Stigwood remains of the original Bee Gees, and that he has formed a backing group and is shortly to go on the road, commencing with two weeks residency at Batley Variety Club, but I think these can be safely discounted as wholly unfounded. This is a fine epic song from Maurice and barry Gibb, and Barry sings with all the power and feeling at his disposal. The strings and piano soar and crash, the tempos shift and the mood is of despair, but the promise of a silver lining just around the corner. Hi ho silver lining, and well done Barry.


Walking In The Park: It seems odd that people should ask "Where is the excitement in today's scene?" when Jon Hiseman is in our midst. This is a tremendous, towering tour de force and should be a monster hit--if those deejays would do their job.


You're Tuff Enough: Not a particularly good record. This is the first release by the reformed band and they lack rehearsal. It was important to get something out in a hurry and this blues rave-up serves as a nice introduction and discotheque material. Better things will be forthcoming.

Thunderclap Newman

Something In The Air: Stand by for sensation! Pete Townsend's proteges are about to be unleashed on the public. Thunderclap is the phantom pianist featured in a cliff-hanging boogie-type break sandwiched between the straight vocals. They make a weird team that will blow several minds. Townsend did the production and it's a strong chart contender, once their image is established.

Velvet Opera

Anna Dance Square: A bright, entertaining square dance, much in the mood of a Dave Mason composition Traffic used to play. Nice guitars and a compulsive dance beat.
