Barry Gibb’s Lost Masterpiece
By Chris P. James
It’s a twist of fate that the lone survivor of the Bee Gees is the eldest Gibb brother, Barry. Even his youngest sibling (and non-band member), Andy is deceased. Our survivor, the original BG, has accomplished more in the world of music and songwriting than just about anyone who ever entered that arena. There are no more mountains to climb. But there is always more music to be made. Barry Gibb is currently performing concert dates around the world on his Mythology Tour. He is, of course, also still writing songs.
Most music fans are well aware of the Bee Gees. There’s not much that hasn’t already been told of their illustrious history. But do you know about Barry’s long lost first solo album? It’s a beautiful record, thoroughly melodic with a strong helping of country/folk-influenced material.
