The Bee Gees seem to be searching for a new direction, but history tells us that they still had a way to go before they discovered the R&B groove which would take them back to the top of the charts.
Despite only being an eight track LP in its day, there are some great songs here including the single 'Saw A New Morning'. Barry is the dominant singer and writer on this album. Favourites include 'South Dakota Morning' and 'Come Home Johnny Bridie'. Country-inspired ballads; certainly far from their best release, but enjoyable just the same. Another example of the diverse writing talents of this amazing group.

Even though this CD barely garnered a hit, "Saw A New Morning" and was poorly received by the public, the concerts were still going strong during this period (1973). Hedging more towards country, The Bee Gees crafted some fine acoustic work here with, "South Dakota Morning, "Living In Chicago" and the upbeat rocker, "Come Home Johnny Bride". "I Don't Wanna Be The One" and "My Life Has Been A Song" are a tad bit of the old cornball ballads. However, "While I Play" is a Barry Gibb standout cut. Recorded with such celebrated studio musicians as, Jim Keltner on drums, pianist Jane Getz, 'Sneaky Pete' on steel guitar and the Bee Gees own, Alan Kendall, this album is first rate. It is a shame it only clocks in at less than 33 minutes.

Originally purchased this album on vinyl when it was first released but never did get aroung to buying it on C.D. Had my MP3 as a present last Christmas & have subsequently been adding many my favorite artists/albums to it. As i had some credit to be used up this was a steal at the price, however if you like the Bee Gees it would be a great addition to your collection at the normal price.

Had this on cassette many moons ago, and every song occasionally popped into my mind over the years. Great to have it on cd now. My all time favourite Bee Gees album.

excellent early material from one of the best British groups of all time. Unique vocals and arrangements.
