THE BEE GEES - The First - 1967

3a96176f.jpg

Unlike many of their 60's contemporaries the Bee Gees have started their international career with a masterpiece album. The First was released on July 14, 67 in the UK, at a time when Pop Music, in the words of Tony Palmer, had its culmination point when Fab 4 performed 'All You Need Is Love" via satellite. As the time proved they're up to the moment. Just like "Sgt Pepper" there's no weak composition on it. Along with the well-known hit singles, jewels follow one after another. Moreover, "Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You" introduced Gregorian chants into Pop, long before Enigma explored it to success in the early 90's.

In addition 'I Can't See Nobody', released as a B-side, shined on brightly. No doubt, The First, Sgt. Pepper & Days of Future Passed by Moody Blues were the Top 3 orchestral rock LP's of the year!

Beatles old cohort Klaus Voormann did the cover art, totally in unison with the Summer of Love.

Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You

Lyrics


Oh solo Dominique [Repeat: x4]

Take this in hand
Said he who stands
Behind the chair
A broken table there

Every christian lion hearted man will show you
Every christian lion hearted man will show you

Oh solo Dominique [Repeat: x4]

Don't walk so tall
Before you crawl

For every child
Is thinking of something wild

Every christian lion hearted man will show you
Every christian lion hearted man will show you

Oh solo Dominique [Repeat: x3]

Every christian lion hearted man will show you
Every christian lion hearted man will show you (will show you)

Oh solo Dominique [Repeat: x3]

Songwriters: Barry Gibb / Maurice Ernest Gibb / Robin Hugh Gibb

Nick Mlatchkov Glad I happened upon your post Nick .. Take this in hand Said he who stands Behind the chair A broken table there A broken man .. in a broken world Every Christian lion-hearted man will show you .. that his courage is desperately needed The world is leading you into the MATRIX The Enemy is deceiving you and plays tricks ... on your mind to take control of your life ... ... to rob you of peace and fill you with STRIFE “Dis-ease” causes disease but the race won’t relent until you give EVERYTHING … and all of you is spent. You are taught to react ... NOT thoughtfully respond. You are taught NOT to question … ask what is beyond? You are NOT told to seek the Truth… but settle for LIES “Will you walk into my parlor?” *said the spider to the fly. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fay-vietmeier-pennsylvania/breaking-free

Agree with you, Guardian writer Alexis Petridis https://www.theguardian.com/music/2003/jan/16/artsfeatures.popandrock and Chris \ud83d\udc1d Guest who was the one who pointed me to BeeGee's early work as being worthy of deeper appreciation. The tragedy of seeing three brothers all dying relatively young and in the case of Andy Gibb, a heart-attack at a very young age is overshadowed by the contemporary view of the band as musicians engaged in pop music creation. Any other band and the loss of two of the three brothers on top of the loss of the youngest Gibb brother would have warranted much greater attention. History eventually position the Bee Gees in their rightful acclaim as musicians and song-writers.
Great post Nick Mlatchkov!
