Melody Fair: Bee Gees Tribute

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jack Rabid
Finally, a tribute LP worth buying! This is not an ironic, silly joke, like the Rutles or R.E.M. "tributes." Sure, we all think '70s disco stench when we think Bee Gees, of contemptible falsettos, and Saturday Night Fever. But knowledgeable fans know that this blockbuster period all but obliterated from public awareness an initial decade of great hit singles, of eight LPs that remain a massive treat for anyone who has ever claimed to love the Beatles, and that's the material mined by the 21 bands here; hell, even the one disco-era song here, the deplorable "How Deep Is Your Love," is done by clever Baby Lemonade as if covering Teenage Fanclub! Best is the Young Fresh ...

Finally, a tribute LP worth buying! This is not an ironic, silly joke, like the Rutles or R.E.M. "tributes." Sure, we all think '70s disco stench when we think Bee Gees, of contemptible falsettos, and Saturday Night Fever. But knowledgeable fans know that this blockbuster period all but obliterated from public awareness an initial decade of great hit singles, of eight LPs that remain a massive treat for anyone who has ever claimed to love the Beatles, and that's the material mined by the 21 bands here; hell, even the one disco-era song here, the deplorable "How Deep Is Your Love," is done by clever Baby Lemonade as if covering Teenage Fanclub! Best is the Young Fresh Fellows' pouncing "Craise Finton Kirk Royal Academy of Arts," and Fastbacks' "Turn of the Century," off Bee Gees 1st. Sneetches do a bang-up "Mrs. Gillespie's Refrigerators," the little-known Appleseeds rave-up the "Taxman," rip "Exit Stage Right," and Jigsaw Seen open with an absolutely Badfinger-esque "Melody Fair," off Odessa! And it's good that there's so many numbers from Horizontal and Idea Spindle terrific; Michael Nold dripping; Kristian Hoffman psychedelic; Dramarama surprisingly OK; Idle Wilds and Insect Surfers average, there are no less than four tracks from the typically non-acknowledged but still alright early-'70s LPs: 2 Years On, Phil Seymour does a nice "The First Mistake I Made," off Trafalgar, Nick Celeste minor-muffs "The Greatest Man in the World," and though it's no shock to hear Material Issue do an uninspired but serviceable "Run to Me" off To Whom It May Concern, Chris Von Sneidern's damn-lovely "You Know It's For You" is as unpredicted as a Panama snowstorm. Consider that there are no tracks here from their three-four albums' worth of pre-Bee Gees 1st LP material, nothing off Cucumber Castle, and all those huge hit singles remain untouched. Even without the variety and artist coverage, this is fantastic music. This sucker puts all those shabby tribute LPs of super artists to shame.
