Re-issue of this 1971 motion picture soundtrack. It shows precisely how much of a golden touch the Bee Gees had in the years 1967-1970 that even this soundtrack album, on which they participated in only the most limited way, is one of the prettiest records of their output. For starters, it marked the first official appearance of Barry Gibb's 'Morning of My Life (In the Morning)', a song (credited here as 'In the Morning') that he'd written four years earlier which the group had performed regularly in Australia and which had been offered to other artists, but had somehow never been recorded by them until this soundtrack. Coupled with conductor/arranger Richard Hewson's original orchestral material, and a pleasant if undistinguished original song called 'Working on It Night and Day' (featuring Barry Hewson on vocals), and oddities such as a group of elementary school students performing 'Spicks and Specks', the result is a very rewarding Bee Gees curio, and, thanks to 'In the Morning', one that is essential to any serious collection of their work. Polydor. 1996.
