"When I was a kid in the late ‘60s, my dad raised me on The Beatles, The Who and the Stones, but the Bee Gees were also in heavy rotation. In particular, it was the 'greatest hits' collection, Best Of Bee Gees, the album with the yellow cover.
"This was almost a decade before the 'disco Bee Gees' swept America, which would eventually make them a bit of a punchline. But the ‘60s Bee Gees were a great band that churned out incredibly well-written pop/psychedelic songs, very much in the vein of The Beatles and the Stones.
"Tracks like Holiday, To Love Somebody and New York Mining Disaster 1941 are real classics. I even covered a Bee Gees song, the obscure Lemons Never Forget on my Cover 2 Cover CD with Neal Morse and Randy George."
