Towards the end of the 60's, following the release of their three classic pop albums and the experimental 'Odessa', the Bee Gee broke up, after all three brothers decided that they wanted to release solo albums. Maurice recorded 'The Loner' album, Barry did the same with his 'The Kids No Good', while Robin's album was to be called 'Sing Slowly Sisters'. In the end none of the three albums were ever released, but songs from each proposed record have leaked onto the net, and so it's just possible to piece together what the albums might have sounded like. Robin seemed to progress faster than his brothers, and had an album pretty much ready to go in 1970, but then Barry and Maurice got back together as a duo for the 'Cucumber Castle' album and accompanying film - if you get a chance to watch this on Youtube then do spare the time as although it is very, very bad, the cast list is stellar, including Frankie Howard, Spike Milligan, Vincent Price, Lulu, and all of Blind Faith, as well as uncredited appearances from Mick Jagger, Donovan and Marianne Faithful. Although 'Cucumber Castle' wasn't one of their best albums, it did well enough to tempt Robin back into the fold for the follow-up '2 Years On', and once that happened then the solo albums were permanently put on the back-burner. Robin's album is fairly easy to piece together, and so here it is, as it would have sounded back in 1970.
