8/9/1968 (49 years ago today) – It’s 2:00 am at London’s Abbey Road studios and the other Beatles had all gone home for the night: Paul McCartney stays behind, taping 25 versions of “Mother’s Nature’s Son”, inspired by a lecture given by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi while The Beatles were in India (the same lecture that inspired John Lennon to write “Child Of Nature” which remained unreleased, though the tune and melody were later re-used on “Jealous Guy”). FYI, it was Paul’s take 24 that ended up on “The White Album”

8/9/1975 (42 years ago today) – This was the precursor to “Saturday Night Fever”: After a few years “in the shadows”, The Bee Gees comeback gets underway when “Jive Talkin'” starts two weeks at No. 1 on the singles chart — From here on out, you’re not going to be able to avoid hearing a lot more from The Brothers Gibb
