In August 1973, at the age of 15, Gibb made his first recordings at the Nova Sound Studios in London. The songs are “Windows of My World” and the country number “My Father’s a Rebel” The second song was written by Maurice Gibb (according to a November 1973 fans club newsletter) who also produced the session.[2] At the urging of his brother, Barry, Gibb returned to Australia in 1974. Barry believed that since Australia had been a good training ground for the Bee Gees, it would also help Andy’s career.[3]

While in Australia, Gibb recorded demos of his compositions as well as his own renditions of an old numbers.[3] After the release of his first single, “Words and Music” he performed it on the Australian TV called The Ernie Sigley Show.

When Gibb had got the call from his brother Barry in June 1976 as he and Col Joye‘s company ATA had proceeded with the new single (“Words and Music“) knowing that Gibb would go to Florida later that year, while his last recording session before moving to the US, including “In the End”, “Flowing Rivers”, “Come Home for the Winter” and “Let It Be Me” were re-recorded in Criteria.[4]
