Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
If Andy Gibb was too young to join his siblings in the Bee Gees, that didn't stop him from topping the charts - on this day in 1978, he scored his third No.1 U.S. hit with his third single, “Shadow Dancing” – an unprecedented feat. That song became the title track of the singer-songwriter's second album, which like its predecessor, benefits from the helping hands of his older brothers. Given that pedigree, it's no surprise that SHADOW DANCING is first class pop-rock with a disco beat, and both "An Everlasting Love" and "(Our Love) Don't Throw It All Away" were Top 10 hits, pushing the album to platinum sales status. But Andy wasn't merely riding the Bee Gees' wave of popularity; he wrote 6 of the 10 songs himself, and his lead vocal work here is superb. While Gibb's career was brief (he would release just one more album before his death at age 30) SHADOW DANCING displays a talent that still shines brightly.
