The Bee Gees release Spicks and Specks
Spicks and Specks is the Bee Gees' second album.
It was released in Australia in 1966 as Monday's Rain with "Spicks and Specks" released as the album's first single. The album was quickly re-released as Spicks and Specks to capitalize on the success of the single. The success of "Spicks and Specks" across Australia, where it was a top-five hit in every state, propelled them to move to England in 1967 to further their musical career.
Their subsequent tour took the Bee Gees to the Kyamba Smith Hall at Wagga Wagga Showground in country New South Wales, where such acts as Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs and The Easybeats also performed.
