Saturday Night Fever (Soundtrack)
by Various Artists
Released: Jan 1977
Label: Bee Gees/Reprise
One of the biggest-selling soundtracks of all time, Saturday Night Fever spread the disco gospel to the masses, turned the soft rock band the Bee Gees into Open-Shirted Disco Gods, and transformed TV actor John Travolta into a major movie star. Once hated by rock fans, the music here has actually held up very well, especially its string of high-hat-rich Bee Gees tunes -- "Stayin' Alive," "Jive Talkin'" etc. Ironically, this album also ended up destroying the Bee Gees, since the group was forever lumped in with the disco craze.
