Streaming Part 5 – New Course
Main Course is a pivotal album in the Bee Gees career. After years of soft Rock tained Pop the group started to switch into a Disco oriented sound from mid-70s.
The impact was highly positive. Jive Talkin’ shot to #1 in the US and while its streams at 8 million aren’t that good in comparison to such an initial reception, the trend was started. The next #1 smash You Should Be Dancing quickly confirmed it. This latter song has a solid tally of 17 million streams, nearly 10 times more than Love So Right which climbed to #3 in the US back in the day.
While the trend was good final tallies remain unimpressive with 16,000 equivalent album sales for Main Course and 22,000 for Children of the World.
