Heard this a few days ago and I think it's brilliant, but seems to be unobtainable.

Have done searches on the title and all I come up with is some female rap (crap) group.

Apparently it is on a demo album of theirs so don,t know if it was ever on general release, hope so.

Any info would be gratefully received. Thanks.

The song was released on a Publishers Album in 2004 entitled "Too Much Heaven". Sadly it's not on sale, however, since Steve Wright started playing it on Radio 2 it seems to be gathering interest which may increase the chances of a commercial release.
I was fortunate enough to get an full quality MP3 of the song :o)

Don't know the song in question but I can say that Barry Gibb has written some nice songs over the years.

I still have an old Bee Gees Album from the early 70s called LIFE IN A TIN CAN that is very country-ish and has some nice songs on it. One, Johnnie Bridie, pops up every now and then amongst some people my age when we get together. They all seem to think it is Trad or at the very least, something from a folk artist. I like South Dakota Morning very much as well from the same album.

That CD is available now and it's worth picking up. I never cared much for the warbely voice of Robin Gibb who often sings half or more of any of the songs on a given Bee Gees album but some of the songs he's been given to sing are just as nice. If you can get past his idosyncratic delivery, that is.

Another nice song of Barry Gibb's is 'Rest your love on me tonight' I'm not sure they ever recorded it themselves.

When I was very active playing and singing in the late 70s a couple of Gibb tunes were always in our repertoire. Songs such as 'Sweetheart'and 'Don't forget to remember me' used to go over very well with much older audiences who assumed they were a old songs. They have that feel to them. Yes, yes, they are a little syrupy, but people enjoy hearing them.

I hadn't though of those songs in YEARS, until I saw this thread.

My husband, who is not davetnova, and I always laugh when that Beavis & Buthhead epsiode comes on and they hear Jive Talkin'. The two of them love it, start dancing to it and think the Bee Gee are The Black Crowes. That was back when B&B were permitted to like songs and not just diss everything. A prompt halt was put to that because they were accused of using their influence to promote certain artists. Silly! The cartoon was more amusing then because the things they liked were genuinely odd and their reasons for liking the song just as strange. Somehow I don't think the Bee Gees Album MAIN COURSE, which features Jive Talkin', saw any huge jump in sales.

I think this song is great, I have a link to the site Brucie told me about and I just have it on in the background while I work. Practically learnt all the words now, although one or two are slightly different from the version at the link from Jim Dixon, but this was recorded by someone else.

Please, if anyone hears of a release or know where I can buy it LET ME KNOW. I,m completely hooked on this song. Have got most of the Gibbs stuff anyway but this is exceptional to me, must be an age thing, going soft in my old age.

Anyway thanks everyone for the input.

I too am going soft in my old age. However, I think we may be discussing different things.

It is available on CD, buddy. I will dig around and see. Saw it somewhere when I was lookin' the first time. I'll find it again and post it or message you or both. Could be a few hours. Later.

GOT IT!!!!!

Brucie, I got a reply from site owner Soren in Denmark, he has offered to buy the CD over there off his contacts, and send it to me. It'll be $54 but well worth it to me.

Thanks again

So glad to hear you have found it Wilbyhillybilly!

I feel the same way about two songs on the old Irish Rover's LP, Tales to Warm Your Mind and which have never been released on any CDs. One is Brambleshire Wood and the other is that song about a stolen child whist picking blackberries. Thrice I have bought & paid for a good copy of the LP on Ebay in hopes of transferring it to CD and thrice I have been thwarted by dealers who say.. Ooops.. we don't have it anymore or the record went to the twilight Zone or some other lame excuse.

Good for you for pursuing your song to the ends of the known world! I admire your convictions.

I also pulled out LIFE IN A TIN CAN nad began playing it again. I know the Bee Gees aren't folk, but some of their songs and albums just hold up nicely. MAIN COURSE is one of those too. Too bad my CD of it went wehrever the other sock goes when you toss a pair into the dryer.

That sounds like a chunk of change for a CD, but if you are happy, that's a good thing.

I once spent about 15 years

1) trying to remember a certain song and any of the words in it or the melody

2) all I could recall was "Oh, no, you're not home"

3) I casually mentioned it one day about a year ago to someone who was about my age and asked if it rang a bell

He replied, "That's Don Henley's 'The Boys of Summer'." Damned if it wasn't. I now have a tape with that song playing for 45 minutes on one side and 45 minutes on the other. I know where you're coming from.

Thats a coincidence Brucie, I have just finished transferring the soundtrack of Don Henley "Live Inside Job" DVD to CD for a mate of mine who wants to play it in the car. (it was only released on DVD)
The Boys of Summer wasn't on it.

Daves wife, if only we could find all those socks!!

Deadhead sticker was a reference to the Grateful Dead, I think. Also, is you liked that by Henley, you will also absolutely love "The Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams. You should be able to find that on an mp3 site. I know it's out there for sure. It's another song I have taped both sides.
