Bee Gees - Mr. Natural mp3 album

Natural is the Bee Gees' twelfth album (tenth worldwide), released in July 1974. It was the first Bee Gees release to be produced by Arif Mardin, who was partially responsible for launching the group's later major success with the follow-up album Main Course. The album's music incorporates more rhythm and blues, soul and funk and hard rock than their previous albums.

Their previous album having scarcely made a ripple and, now, hitless for two years, the Bee Gees went for a new sound in the hands of producer Arif Mardin. The result was Mr. Natural, the sultriest and most soulful record they had ever delivered up to that time. Shedding their pop sensibilities here and singing in a freer, more soulful idiom (with a strong Philadelphia soul influence) on songs such as "Throw a Penny," and with a funky beat backing them up on a lot of this record, the group is scarcely recognizable in relation to their previous work

The Bee Gees' 1974 release Mr. Natural is simply wonderful. With Mr. Natural, producer Arif Mardin helps the Brothers Gibb achieve a masterful melding of each brother's strengths - a perfect balance of vocal interaction between the brothers, with Barry and Robin entwining their voices or taking turns on lead, and all three brothers infusing a song with astounding, intuitive harmonies. This album is a fine moment in Bee Gees music. As a new convert to Bee Gees fandom, I am still exploring their vast catalog.
