BONUS CLIPS BELOW – Lonely Days: studio quality recording; live in Las Vegas
On 21 August 1970, the three Gibb brothers announced they would reunite and start recording together, nearly 16 months after Robin quit the group. They said later that they wrote Lonely Days and How Can You Mend a Broken Heart at their first reunion session.
Lonely Days was sung by all three together, to Maurice’s piano and bass and Bill Shepherd’s string and horn arrangement, the slow verses contrasting with the pounding chorus.
