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

4.0 out of 5 stars Music from "The Disco" Period June 3 2013
By Roller
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music of The Bee Gees is quite good. "Stayin Alive" still sounds good today. Some of the other music would best be appreciated by someone with an interest in this type of Music. The Music is good, but there is a time and a place for this type of Music. This Music would be appreciated by someone who lives for "Disco" Music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Precursor to House and Techno June 20 2007
By Estrild
Format:Audio CD
Back in the early 90's when I was clubbing, a friend watched Saturday Night Fever and gave me a rave review of it. I was ignorant in denying it a chance, and carrying on the unfortunate bias against it. I watched it 10 years later and lamented. Kleo was right, it was us, it was a mirror of our scene just with slightly different music, and slightly different clothes! I know that feeling, I know that need to dance, I know the high of the dancer and music united, and we shared that same acceptance of all races and sexual preferences as we danced the night away together amidst flashing lights and pina colada fog. Disco was the precursor to house, and thence techno. It's obvious. So if you are or were a raver, you will learn something from this film and it's music, and see something of ourselves in it. I'm glad there is a film to preserve club culture, and when I see Travlota getting taken over by the vibe I'm right there in the moment. I love the cd, especially "You should be Dancin'", "Jive Talkin'", "Night Fever", "Stayin'Alive", "If I can't Have You" and "More Than a Woman". It gets me groovin', in a different way from Orbital or Spiral Tribe or Underworld, but groovin' still! And that's eternal!

5.0 out of 5 stars 30th Anniversary Remastered! Sept. 20 2007
By Martin A Hogan TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
"SNF" sold over 35 million copies world-wide. It also garnered seven #1 hits in the USA alone. The Bee Gees also won several Grammys from this for production and vocal arrangement. A unique mix of disco, funk and orchestration, this album (now one CD and newly remastered to perfection) defined a generation and a lasting style of music (albeit with repercussions). If you are still stalling on buying this, consider that it has been remixed and if you ever want to listen to dance songs that actually contain interesting lyrics; this is the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great disco classic July 24 2007
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This masterpiece has lost none of its appeal after all these years, proving the critics wrong and the BeeGees right. Part of its popularity must be due to the clever mix of fast dance numbers and lovely soaring ballads. The frenetic pace of e.g. Staying Alive and Night Fever is balanced by the serene pace of How Deep Is Your Love.

For fans of the old-style BeeGees ballads, this new direction with the edgy falsetto vocals and the nervous beat came as a shock initially, but those hits like Jive Talkin' and You Should Be Dancing soon enough swept one up in the disco fever. I love Yvonne Elliman's poignant ballad If I Can't Have You, while the tracks by Kool & The Gang, MFSB and KC & The Sunshine Band are great too.

But the real underground classic here is Disco Inferno by Trammps, nine minutes of burbling, bubbling, stomping, storming, gripping funk that is as anthemic as any great rock song by for example Bruce Springsteen. Come to think of it, most of the BeeGees tracks here can also be considered as anthems of the disco generation.

Besides serving as bridges between the classic hits, the filler tracks like A Fifth Of Beethoven and Salsation add authenticity to the overall listening experience and serve to strengthen the ambience. This album and the movie took disco out of the underground and reinvented it as a mainstream phenomenon.

While rock music was going through the convulsions of the punk and new wave revolutions, disco was having the party of the decade. And this album, along with the music of Donna Summer, Grace Jones, Chic, Giorgio Moroder, Boney M, Village People and others, provided the soundtrack to an era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Selling Soundtrack Ever July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Apart from the soundtrack of Bodyguard, this is surely one of the best selling soundtrack ever. Starting with the Bee Gees, they are originally slow ballad singers. From a interchange at Main Course, they changed themselves to R&B music singers. Stayin' Alive, Night Fever, More Than a Woman, and If I Can't Have You are surely the best rocking songs in the Bee Gees's history. How Deep Is Your Love is rocking on around the world till now. Surely, the Bee Gees ruled the disco era during 1977.
Yvonne Elliman and Travares, are also great, but they used Bee Gees's songs, Yvonne Elliman sang If I Can't Have You (Bee Gees's own edition in Bee Gees Greatest), and the Travares sang a different version of More Than a Woman
Saturday Night Fever movie wasn't that good, but with the soundtrack, it's surely the world's top LP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes! YES! May 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that showed the nation that disco was the best kind of music. Played by the Bee Gees, plus a few others, this album's radiant style of disco will live through the ages. While many say disco sucked and was the embarrasment of the nation, I disagree. I feel folk-rock from the 1960's was the bane of music. The beats are funky and danceable, the vocals are, well, mousy (well, you wanted the Bee Gees), and just everything about the album makes it timeless. It is one of those albums, like Nirvana's Nevermind, or the Beatles' White Album that is owned by everyone on earth for good reason.
