LP 267: The Discos – Music from Saturday Night Fever (Stereo Gold Award, 1977)

28 Jul

Side 1
01 Night Fever
02 You Should Be Dancing
03 How Deep Is Your Love
04 Salsation
05 Disco Inferno
06 A Fifth Of Beethoven

Side 2
07 Staying Alive
08 If I Can’t Have You
09 Jive Talking
10 More Than A Woman
11 K Jee
12 Boogie Shoes

Music from Saturday Night Fever.
Played by The Discos.
Touched by the hand of Leo Muller.

Unusually for a Stereo Gold Award LP there are no exploito instrumentals penned by Muller. Instead you get decent versions of a dozen tracks from the million-selling soundtrack. Jive Talking gets a run here too despite not being included in the film – would have preferred a version of Rick Dees’ Disco Duck.

The heat belongs to David Shire and Salsation. Supreme grooviness.
I’m also partial to the concentrated and slimmed-down Disco Inferno and a swirling Fifth Of Beethoven.
The shimmering Philly grooves of M.F.S.B.’s K Jee take the gold medal on Side 2.

Comments and feedback are welcome.

    Hi nlgbbbblth,

    I saw your mix nil se anseo posted somewhere else online and have to say that I love the sound of it from the priests warning to Brien O’Reilly’s Overture. Unfortunately megaupload is blocked where I live (Hong Kong) so cant download. Do you know where else I could get it from?

    I run a Disco and Karaoke company and there is nothing like 70s classics to get people going, i always wonder how long will it be before todays youth forget the original talent

      Hopefully never! We need to keep this stuff alive for the next generation. Thanks for your comment.

    That album is simply golden. So many good tracks. I definitely feel like I’m stepping into a time machine when I’m listening to it.
