One Great historic Album!

"In 1968, Trevor Gordon and Graham Bonnet, friends of the Bee Gees, were signed with Robert Stigwood. Possessing bold voices, the duo only released one album before going their separate ways. But it is a grand album. Only three of the thirteen songs were written by the duo, with six being written by the Bee Gees. The first two singles were Gibb songs and were fairly large hits in 1968 and 1969 with "Only One Woman" becoming a classic. Even corny ballads like, "A House Is Not A Home" and "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" are given new life with Graham Bonnet's soaring vocals. But it's the Gibb songs that bring out the vocal magic of this duo. "By The Light Of The Burning Candle" is pure Gibb confection and "To Love Somebody" will stand high among the other 250 cover versions of this composition. This collection is an important mark in time from these two talented guys.This version contains five extra Gibb compositions (including the very early "Love You") repeated in Mono. It really doesn't add much to the set other than historical perspective."
The Magnificent Marbles

"Lovers of '60s Bee Gees and Walker Bros. music will absolutely need to hear this. They may have only recorded one album, but The Marbles made a gem of a pop album if ever there was one. They actually outdo their mentors The Bee Gees with the clever arrangements here, which are upbeat and lively. But the quiet moments are lovely, too, as the self-penned "Daytime" and "Little Laughing Girl" illustrate. And as for the other non-Bee Gees material, "A House is Not a Home" is simply the best-ever version of this often-recorded song. Even Neil Sedaka's "Breaking Up is Hard to Do" is good (it got some radio play in the US). The Marbles singing, solo or harmonizing, is absolutely incredible. Buy this."
