BEE GEES' 1st is the debut album for the Polydor (USA: ATCO) label by The Bee Gees, released in July 1967. Reflecting the group's early style, Bee Gees' 1st was a psychedelic rock album. The album cover was designed by Klaus Voormann who had previously done the cover for Revolver by the Beatles. Red Chair Fade Away was covered by THE CYRKLE as a B-side. Every Christian Lion-Hearted Man Will Show You was covered by JEORDIE WHITE's LA based band GOON MOON on their second release, Licker's Last Leg. This song has also been covered by THE FLAMING LIPS as an intro to early live versions of Shine on Sweet Jesus as documented on the compilation 20 Years of Weird: Flaming Lips 1986-2006. The song New York Mining Disaster 1941 was later covered by CHUMBAWAMBA on their WYSIWYG album, by MARTIN CARTHY on Signs of Life, and as a B-side by THE LEVELLERS. Singer and pianist NINA SIMONE covered three songs from the album: To Love Somebody and I Can't See Nobody on 1969 album To Love Somebody and Please Read Me on 1968 Nuff Said.
