Product Description

Bee Gees Saturday Night Fever OST UK CD album

Amazon.com

The double-disc soundtrack to the blockbuster Saturday Night Fever (available on a single CD) marks both the zenith and the nadir of disco. It was such a popular sensation that it catapulted the music to stratospheric levels of mainstream popularity, and the album was the bestselling movie soundtrack of all time (until The Bodyguard, and then Titanic). But "Disco Fever" became so hot, it could only flame out just as quickly (along with the careers of the Bee Gees). With this record, disco became a phenomenon and a fad. The Bee Gees' contributions are the strongest, especially the once-ubiquitous "Stayin' Alive" and "Night Fever," and they still hold up. Then there's Walter Murphy's "A Fifth of Beethoven," a trivial piece of pop ephemera that may have set new standards for ephemeral triviality. How often will you listen to this record--and how much will you play when you do? There's no telling--but it remains a classic piece of pop history, and when you're in the mood it's a good thing to have around. --Jim Emerson

I was just a youngun when this movie and soundtrack came out, but I can still remember my older sister getting into her satin and sequined outfits and hitting the local disco with friends every weekend. Say what you will about disco, or the late 70's as a whole. You have to give this landmark album 5 stars. Saturday Night Fever, both the film and the soundtrack changed the course of the 70's. The nation went from listening to The Beatles and Led Zeppelin to Lipps Inc. and the Bee Gees. The songs contained on this soundtrack are dated, "Jive Talkin", "More Than a Woman", and "Disco Inferno" could only have come out during the late 70's, but just try not tapping your foot to them. Some of the tunes are sooooo corny; "Boogie Shoes" and "Open Sesame" would be almost funny, if they weren't so damn infectious, again making you involuntarily giving you the urge to dance. And a couple of the songs found here would be groan-worthy; "Night on Disco Mountain" and "A Fifth of Beethoven" if they were supposed to be taken as serious music....they're not. They are supposed to give you a good beat to dance to, and they are supposed to be fun. Some of the tunes on here are now considered classics; "Stayin' Alive" is probably played today at parties and weddings as often as it was in the 70's. Lord knows enough of today's rap and pop artists have sampled, and made career's off of remaking the songs found here. They say there is no such thing as a time machine, but man, when I put this disc on...I am taken right back to a more peaceful, a more innocent and a more fun period in America.

Love it or hate it, whether you were there or not, disco was not just a fad in the late 70's. It became damned near a national (if not worldwide) obsession. Studio 54 became the cultural mecca. And this album was the movement at it's zenith. Just look at the numbers...30 million copies sold, 10 top ten singles, #1 on the charts for 6 months. The biggest selling album of all time for 7 years running (until Mikey came around). The world got the Fever, big time. Even mainstream pop & rock artists (the Stones, Rod Stewart, ELO, Paul McCartney, Kiss) were making disco music just to attempt to compete in the marketplace and be heard on that holy place that was the disco dancefloor. Inevitably, something that big had to fall and the backlash was huge. The Bee Gees, most notably, didn't recover from that for years.
What gets lost in the cultural significance of this album is just how good the songs really were. In some cases they ARE dated (thus my one star deduction). But you cannot deny that "Night Fever" is one of the damned catchiest tunes ever made (8 weeks at #1 on its own is proof enough). The arrangements are suprisingly lush and intricate. The Bee Gees material is especally well produced. This was a great songwriting & production team at the top of their game here. It's more a tribute to old R&B than an attempt to cash in on the disco craze at the time. The more orchestral bits (5th of Beethoven, Night on Disco Mt) might make you cringe a bit, but they're fun send ups anyway...the original use of sampling! "Boogie Shoes" is infectious. Then there's "Disco Inferno"...a r&b classic. But this is the Brothers Gibb show all the way.
To quote a critic, time has proven that disco didn't suck & neither did the Bee Gees.

It's difficult to remember that, before "Thriller," the soundtrack to John Travolta's "Saturday Night Fever" was the biggest-selling album of all time. And not without reason. Disco glitter aside, this is a solid soundtrack that stayed afloat largely due to the stellar material from the Bee Gees. It's unfair to associate the Brothers Gibb with disco cheese, for they truly crafted some groovilicious jams back in its day. "Staying Alive," "Night Fever," "More Than a Woman," and "Jive Talkin'" are flawlessly arranged dance hits that, remarkably, don't sound embarrassing by today's standards. And the ballad, "How Deep is Your Love" is a classic love song gently sung and well-written. But beyond the Bee Gees, what else is there? Well, there's Yyvonne Elliman's gem "If I Can't Have You" and the classic "Disco Inferno" by the Trammps. Unfortunately, the disc gets docked a star for a few spots of filler that remind us why disco got a bad rap in its day. One of these tracks is Walter Murphy's "A Fifth of Beethoven," which sounded cheesy then, and it's still cheesy now. Still, "Saturday Night Fever" is a solid album that won't look ridiculous in your collection--even after 25 years.

In the days before home video, the only way to relive "Saturday Night Fever" was through this best-selling album, one of the best sellers of all-time. While it's the safe bet to assume the album is heavy on "disco" music, some of the Bee Gees classic songs on this beautiful work of art are like the touching "How Deep is Your Love" and "More Than a Woman." But with them also come the swift, fast-moving, multi-textured disco music that helped Tony Manero become king of the dance club in the film.
It's hard to listen to this soundtrack without being taken back in time to 1977/78, because this album was omniprescent then. Each of the songs released as singles either topped the Billboard charts, or came close to it. The Bee Gees reined supreme during this era, and this music explains why. You'll also enjoy the songs from other artists if you enjoy the music of the late '70s, which is full of energy and vigor. The instrumentals on this album more than prove that point. How can you listen to "Manhattan Skyline" and not tap your feet? It's impossible.
Bottom line: if you were around in 1978, relive your younger days. If you weren't around then, here's your chance to see why this album was the best selling album in history up until "Thriller." It's a keeper!
