HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER

THE BEE GEES 1st
“ (…) The Bee Gees were one of the biggest bands in pop history thanks to their many disco singles in the seventies; albums like Saturday Night Fever’s soundtrack are filled with cheesy, yet ultra catchy classics, but that success  overshadows their earlier work  of the sixties and  many people will laugh when you tell them that they used to be as important in the psychedelic pop scene as bands like The Zombies or The Beach Boys. “1st” was the first album by the band released worldwide and even if it has some flaws is still an essential record for every psych pop fan.
(…)The band’s international debut isn’t a perfect album; still, the instrumentation is superb and  extremely influenced by bands like The Beach Boys (Pet Sounds)  with many baroque accompaniments and  lyrics that aren’t  of this world  – even if a couple of songs that show some incredible song-writing (…).  Source / All Rights Reserved:  JP Patino Izquierdo  http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/68562/Bee-Gees-Bee-Gees-1st/

SATANIC FLOWERS: THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST
(…) The Rolling Stones were not ready for the pro movement, and their decision to jump the bandwagon was a serious miscalculation from the very beginning. Brian Jones probably was the only Stone to be able to relate to the new age and even then it may have been for drugs and fashion rather than politics. “Flowers” (Summer 1967) was a shameless cash-in and as far removed from the peace movement’s principles as the UK prime minister’s. “We Love You” (August 1967) was a nice song, but so what? Their only real effort was the “psychedelic” album Their Satanic Majesties Request (Winter 1967). The fans didn’t understand, but bought the album anyway. Considering comments and sales, hardly anyone else did. The Stones failed to convince they had contributed to the new movement and deep inside they knew they were not a part of it and would never be. The new movement was so rich and varied it included Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Buddhism, analyses of capitalism, radically new ideas about sex and male-female model roles and anti-authoritarian education to name but a few, but the Stones shrunk it to something “psychedelic”. Psychedelic was just one possible adjective to label the new era, but it was the only one Jagger, Jones & Co could possibly identify with because it could refer to drugs and drugs could be seen as part of the Anti Attitude. The Stones had a strong image and one that reflected their personalities, so no-one actually believed they had entered the Age of Aquarius”. © Eddy Bonte, full article here:
