The Bee Gee’s “Mr. Natural” single preceded the LP of the same name which released in the summer of 1974. The song, written by Robin and Barry Gibb, grabbed #93 on the US Hot 100. It fared better in Australia, hitting #11.
Here’s the band performing on The Mike Douglas Show in ’74. You will enjoy the song, of course, but do take a moment to appreciate Robin Gibb’s immense yellow turtleneck sweater. That thing looks like it’s strangling the poor man! Also, are the Bee Gees singing about Robert Crumb’s Mr. Natural? I can’t help thinking so.
