Gladys Knight & the Pips released the single “Midnight Train to Georgia”.

The Rolling Stones release “Angie”, which will top the Billboard chart and reach #5 in the UK.

The song became a hit when reissued in 1973, despite it being radically different to his material at the time, the single made No. 6 in the UK charts.

The Bee Gees released their first single, “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” with a promotional slogan from their record label heralding them as “The most significant talent since the Beatles.”  It would climb to #10 in the UK and #14 in the US.

There actually had been a mining disaster in New York, but it was in 1939, not 1941. The Bee Gees would later say they were inspired to write the song by a 1966 Aberfan mining disaster in Wales.
