In November 1967, the Bee Gees released the enigmatic 'World' as the follow-up single to their first U.K. No. 1, 'Massachusetts.' 

A top 10 hit in the U.K., 'World' went all the way to No. 1 in some parts of Europe.  It was one of the staples of their concerts during the late '60s and early '70s.  The trouble with the Bee Gees was that they had so many hits that they could even bring out a compilation album called "Number Ones."  So, 'World' eventually fell out of their later set lits, but the fans, and the world for that matter, continue to love the song.  In 2014, Rolling Stone chose the song among its "13 Essential Barry Gibb tracks.

Here is an excerpt from a short interview Maurice Gibb, Colin Petersen, and Vince Melouney gave to a British teen magazine shortly before the release of 'World.'

Another concert review from the September 1973 tour of the Bee Gees through Japan.  

This one is also about the September 1, 1973 gig in Tokyo (where Barry Gibb turned 27 and the audience gave him flowers.)

My guess is this is from the Stereo magazine (November 1973 issue) because the clipping says it's page 457.  Not many music magazines have that many pages!

"Bee Gees in Japan 1973" continues...

Although Bee Gees gave nine concerts throughout Japan that year, most or all of the press coverage was about their first date in Tokyo - Shinjuku Kosei Nenkin Kaikan, September 1, 1973.  This two-page spread from a music magazine is no exception.
