The Bee Gees do loose-limbed guitar blues rock and do it rather well.
I wouldn’t want a whole album of this but it adds another dimension to Horizontal, sitting neatly in the middle of those final three, heavy songs which are nevertheless entirely different from each other.
Bill Shepherd quite rightly lets vocal and guitars do the talking so orchestral accompaniment is restricted to brass and, latterly, strings and the odd timpani roll. Lack of vocal harmonies also make for a starker than usual feel.
