Well nuts. Five trillion versions and still no match for my copy. Guess I'm keeping it for the wife!

After this every major and minor celebrity made a disco album. People from all genres made disco albums. People of all ages bought disco records. I was a poor teenager or I would've bought it too. Saturday Night Fever wasn't just some stupid disco movie, it laid the seeds of a cultural revolution around the world. There has been nothing like it since. People who had never been to a club were suddenly lining up. The Gibb brothers wrote and produced music for many major recording acts for at least the next decade. The Bee Gees music still lives on in many animated movies. That's how little kids know these songs. My daughter included. But all things end. In the US the rock musicians were no longer selling their bloated stadium nonsense and started the 'disco sucks' movement and it was pretty much over like that. Radio stations changed their formats overnight. People brought their disco records to burning parties. In the rest of the world it was still disco music for a long time. In the US it never went away. Merely headed underground and changed its name to 'dance music'. And dance music has mutated into hundreds of sub genres. And still mutates...

Oh god, it's this. I usually try to review something I normally wouldn't listen to but this is beyond what I intended. I'm a punk! I can't review a disco album! But because this is a big deal I think I should say something: It's just a basic disco album. Not just that, it's one of the best selling albums of all time, a fact that frightens me just a little. Would I suggest it? Sure, why not? It's not hard to find and you should only have to pay 1-5 bucks for a good copy. Nicely put, it's not what I enjoy but it is culturally very important and it is a necessity as a record collector that you must have at least one copy. If disco is your thing or you just want a record that (most) everybody knows and loves, this is the album for you.

This soundtrack propelled disco into the stratosphere. Must have release.
