Bee Gees-Red Chair Fade Away/Kitty Can:

30 years separate these two recordings of Kitty Can by the Bee Gees.
Although one of their lesser known songs (it was the B side of "I've gotta get a message to you")
it's somehow reassuring to find that, whilst some artists denigrate their earlier work,
the Bee Gees clearly still held Kitty Can in high regard:

Attila The Stockbroker's Barnstormer featuring The Fish Brothers-Scumball Pinochet

* The New Singles were a weekly listing of 45rpm recordings published by
Francis Antony Ltd, East Hill, St Austell, Cornwall. They were distributed to the music trade, media, record shops. We are working through the lists from November 1968 to June 1974. Some weeks the lists are missing from the archive but fortunately the weekly list also includes the previous two (and sometimes three) weeks releases...
