Bee Gees

Idea (LP): A riot of big production numbers, heavily laden with strings and dripping emotion in almost every song. The overall effect is a little sombre although there are some nice little whimsical numbers to lighten the mixture. But let's not carp, the Bee Gees have produced another very good album; not their best, but still well into the top bracket.


Good Times: An exciting rock & roll rave-up that should restore their chart fortunes and impress upon the Mother country that hands across the sea these days also means a Commonwealth of jiving.

Five Day Week Straw People

Five Day Week Straw People (LP): Songs dedicated to describing the activities of a weekend raver. Flat voices and a dull group. Sounds like they had a boring weekend.


Wait For Me Mary-Anne: Mike Smith is being hailed as CBS' top producer with a string of hits behind him, including The Tremeloes and The Love Affair. Mike gave Marmalade their first hit with "Lovin' Things" and this new one, a Howard-Blaikley composition, should help establish them as more than one-hit normals.

Magic Mixture

This Is Magic Mixture (LP): Pretty awful group bashing out a variety of styles, presumably in an attempt to do a family album of good clean groupie music.


All Of Us: More pretty and inventive orchestral music including the great Rainbow Chaser.


Floatin' : Amazing Viv Prince plays drums with The Vamp and is being a good boy these days. His drumming is well to the fore on this middle-paced, harmonica-ridden piece of funky blues 'n' ballad. 

Watch Committee

Throw Another Penny In The Wells: Another of those pretty nursery rhyme scenes that don't knock out hip fairies.
