In Focus: Bee Gees

Slide 1 of 2

Call it Bee Gees v. 2.0: Already major stars on the strength of their late Beatle-browed late '60s pop-rock hits, the Bee Gees retooled their sound in 1975 to tap into the energy of contemporary R&B, pumping up the beats and lofting their signature vocal harmonies into a higher orbit around Barry Gibb's newly-honed falsetto. Dance friendly hits like "Jive Talkin'" and "Nights on Broadway" were signposts pointingn to their defining songs for "Saturday Night Fever," which set new sales records and transformed the pop landscape.
