Okay............ most know them for "Saturday Night Fever" type disco music, but they have had an incredible career spanning all different genres of music.

I'm going to key on one record that has been lost in time. Its called "Odessa" and was released in 1969. This is after their initial success as a pop band and before they hit it big with the dance music. They were really trying to find themselves and threw their hat in the concept album ring. Its a masterpiece in my mind and noticably influenced by early Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Moody Blues and Beach Boys. It even has a slight country twinge to it at times.

You need to give the entire record a listen.
