V - E - T - D

Children of the World is the Bee Gees' twelfth album, released in September 1976. The first single, "You Should Be Dancing", went to number one. The album has sold over 2.5 million copies.

Because their manager Robert Stigwood had ended his U.S. distribution arrangement with Atlantic Records, Atlantic producer Arif Mardin, who had produced the Bee Gees' prior two albums, was no longer permitted to work with the group. In an effort to retain the same sound, the Bee Gees recorded at the same studios (Criteria Studios in Miami), used the same engineer (Karl Richardson} and co-produced the album themselves with Richardson and his friend, session musician Albhy Galuten. The effort succeeded, as the new album produced three hit singles, including a #1 in the U.S., just like its predecessor Main Course.
