August 9, 1975 – 44 Years Ago Today: The Bee Gees began a two-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with their single, “Jive Talkin’.” This was the leadoff single from their album, “Main Course,” and proved to be a comeback for the trio of brothers who hadn’t scored a Top 40 single in three years. “Main Course,” was also the first album to feature keyboardist Blue Weaver. The album was a smash hit producing three hit singles. Following “Jive Talkin’,” the group released “Nights On Broadway,” which was also a Top Ten hit peaking at No. 7 and the third single release, “Fanny (Be Tender With My Love),” peaked at No. 12. They followed this album up with “Children Of The World,” which produced the No. 1 smash hit, “You Should Be Dancing,” the No. 3 single, “Love So Right” and “Boogie Child” which peaked at No. 12. Their live album, “Here At Last…Bee Gees…Live” produced the Top 30 live recording, “Edge Of The Universe,” then, of course, the soundtrack to “Saturday Night Fever,” was released, and the rest is solid gold (and Platinum) history. The Bee Gees were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, they were the recipients of the Grammy Legend Award in 2003 and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015.
