JDIZZY's 365 # 135: Odessa

Odessa - The Bee Gees (1967)

The Bee Gees are remembered for their disco, but their baroque pop of the 1960's is what has endured them to a generation of indie poppers and psych-folkers. Odessa is their grandest statement, and it rewards multiple listens with new insights. I can't describe how much I love it, how important this album is to me, so I will simply get to the title track: an epic of mood, substance and mystery. Get the recent re-release, because this bad boy sounds different in both mono and stereo!

Oh the ukulele!
