It was another step up for the Bee Gees. Again, with too many hits to release in a year, other artists like Melba Moore "You Stepped Into My Life" and an old Gibb friend Yvonne Elliman, "Love Me", snatched these songs up and made them their own giant hits. Radio Host Casey Kasem remarked during the showcasing of "Love So Right", that the Bee Gees have had more songs copied by any other artists, other than the Beatles! This was in 1976 before "Saturday Night Fever".!
The title track made a big hit in Europe and several other tracks became concert staples. Who knew that the next studio album would be the biggest selling soundtrack of all time?
"Children Of The World" is another amazing groundbreaker. History will probably never repeat itself like this again.
Unlike `Spirits Having Flown' the follow up album post SNF, `Children Of The World' feels altogether a more complete work with a greater sense of itself. This may be as a result of the central role all three brothers played on this album that seems less evident on `Spirits Having Flown'. `Children Of The World' also has a pleasing spread of R&B styles. The opening track, the 4-on-the-floor club classic `You Should Be Dancing', quickly makes way for `You Stepped Into My Life', a cool funk track that racks up the anticipation of a rounded musical experience to come. It doesn't disappoint. More funk awaits with a standout track `Boogie Child' featuring an exceptional string and horn arrangement, perfectly complimented by soul ballads `Love So Right' and `Love Me', the Yvonne Elliman hit.Read more ›
Totally unbelievably talented people. There music will be around for as long as we play music.
However, the popular single 'You Should Be Dancing' shows the Bee Gees at their very best. The other songs which prove most effective tend to be the ballads. 'Love So Right', the much covered 'Love Me' and 'The Way It Was' are perhaps the album's highlights along with the title track, although if anything 'Children Of The World' itself is a little lightweight.
The Bee Gees were wise i believe to concentrate exclusively on their R+B/soul/disco sound as this enabled them to reach a more contemporary audience, however on this occasion their music falls a little short with 'Children Of The World' being the weakest album of their R+B/soul output from the 1975-79 period. However, if you're a fan of the Bee Gees from this period there should still be plenty to keep you entertained.
