Mono Monday: Remembering Robin Gibb 1949-2012

Robin Gibb -
Saved By The Bell (1969)
Mono Monday returns to Retrospace with the sad news that Robin Gibb has passed away.

His death  is tinged with sadness probably more because of his widely publicised battle with cancer and  prominently the press coverage surrounding it.

I've grown up appreciating the Bee Gees music since the 1970s. However it wasn't the disco glitz of hits like Staying Alive and Tragedy that endure for me (as good as they are) but their earlier work including New York Mining Disaster (perpetuated to be The Beatles on release), Massachusetts, Words, Gotta Get A Message To You and Robin's own Saved By The Bell.

Released in 1969, Saved By The Bell reached Number 2 in the British Chart while topping the New Zealand and South African charts.
