Product Description

Amazon.ca

Survivors of the disco boom of the late 1970s are of course bemused at the ease with which the patina of cultural significance has appeared on the music (and even the clothes) of the period. In any event, whether you can't resist tapping your feet to those four-on-the-floor Bee Gees tunes or whether you're curious about what is, after all, the precursor of hip hop, there's still no better way of enjoying this stuff than through this era-defining recording. Interestingly, there's more social comment here than the happy tunes might suggest, such as in the lyrics of "Staying Alive" which are entirely reminiscent of the theme of the movie They Shoot Horses, Don't They? in their depiction of dance as a desperate escape from social deprivation. Well, up to a point. Then there's "Night Fever" and "Disco Inferno" and all the other white-suits-and-sequins standards which epitomised the movement. What's notable--and perhaps surprising--are the strong melodic and lyrical identities the songs all have, which resulted in a string of hit singles. If you were there, you'll want this music. If you weren't, you'll still want it. It explains a lot. --Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Still stayin� alive after all these years Oct. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
There isn't too much that hasn't been said about this soundtrack, the Bee Gees, and its significance as a disco and soundtrack album milestone. It was with this album that soundtracks became viable cross-merchandising tie-ins after someone saw the film. Think Top Gun and Footloose in the 80's, and the Bodyguard in the 90's. But six #1 singles from an album? I don't think even Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston achieved that!
The bouncy backbeat that starts off "Stayin' Alive" makes this either a classic disco song or one that would've ended up on the burning piles of disco records. The lyrics too mirror John Travolta's character when he's coolly striding along the streets of New York. The chorus enables one to pick out the falsetto vocals and the percussive backbeat. However, it's that last verse, "Life goin' nowhere. somebody help me/somebody help me, yeah" that echoes the despair of the economic downturn of the 1970's.
"How Deep Is Your Love", with its soft keyboards, tugging strings, was the sentimental love song of the movie and like the other single, topped the charts. I don't know which verse to use here, they are all so wonderful, but I'll pick the lead-in to the chorus: "And you come to me on a summer breeze/Keep me warm in your love and then softly leave/And it's me you need to show", after which the chorus comes in, speaking of its world of fools.
"Listen to the ground/There is movement all around/There is something goin' down/And I can feel it" That magical something is "Night Fever", which spent eight weeks at #1. Using the same percussive beat as "Stayin' Alive", the pulsing synths and guitars give the atmosphere of a mirror-balled dance floor in full swing.

5.0 out of 5 stars With this album,it could be every night fever! Aug. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album was a blockbuster even before the movie SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER was released in theatres on December 16,1977. The CD version was originally a 2-disc set,which I own. It's equivalent to the 2 LP set. When the digitally remastered version was released it became a single disc because the entirety of this album totaled approximately 77 minutes. The Bee Gees' previously released YOU SHOULD BE DANCING and JIVE TALKIN' appear on this album. Originally,the live version of JIVE TALKIN' taken from the Bee Gees' HERE AT LAST LIVE album was on this album. My CD copy has the studio MAIN COURSE version. YVONNE ELLIMAN performs the Bee Gees' composition IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU. Original Bee Gees' songs are STAYIN' ALIVE,HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE,NIGHT FEVER and MORE THAN A WOMAN. Tavares' cover of MORE THAN A WOMAN is on this album also. Another previously released song is Walter Murphy's A FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN. We hear Kool and the Gang performing OPEN SESAME,K.C. and the Sunshine Band doing BOOGIE SHOES,and the Trampps' DISCO INFERNO. This was the biggest-selling movie soundtrack album next to the GREASE soundtrack. John Travolta made his starring debut in the film,when his TV show Welcome Back Kotter was in prime-time. Travolta is seen on the front cover of this album on a multi-colored dance floor wearing the white gabardine suit like he did in the film. Behind him stands a photo of the Bee Gees. What a beautiful combination,huh?

4.0 out of 5 stars thumbs up with an * March 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
Owning every studio album released by the Gibbs over the last 36 years, it may seem odd that SNF is not in my collection. There is a simple explanation---the only music worthwhile on this hugely successful soundtrack belongs to the Brothers Gibb.
The rest is just filler, and mostly serves to remind just how spectacular the Bee Gees songs really are. They were classics then and they are classics now. How lucky I was to be young and goodlooking (right-- at least about the young part!) during the days of glitter and sound that was the late 70's.
But truth be known, the only part of this sound tack ever listened to was side one of the double album. Of course this was the Bee Gees home field,and to be sure it was great!
However, all of these wonderful tunes are amply covered on any good Bee Gees anthology, so why bother with anything else? Maybe if people are too young to remember the disco days, this CD would be interesting in it's entirety, if only to give an overall feel of the music of the era. There is no question about the impact this movie and record had on our culture.

But barring the curiosity of it all, BEE GEES :THE RECORD would suffice and at the same time cover EVERY era in a long and succesful career.
