This is an album comprising instrumental only performances of themes from the 'hit' musical Saturday Night Fever. My guess is that most of us who cherish memories of the original John Travolta movie will be going back screaming to hug our Bee Gees albums after listening to this CD. All the tunes here:-

Stayin' Alive, How Deep is Your Love, You Should be Dancin', Night Fever, More Than A Woman, Jive Talkin', Tragedy, If I Can't Have You, Immortality, Nights on Broadway, Disco Inferno

- are given a new spin with a sometimes bizarre mix of synths and accoustical instruments, that for my money rarely works. Furthermore the musicians seem to be so enamoured of their work that they seem reluctant to let it go, so much so that I thought their 'Stayin' Alive' would assume an unwelcome immortality.
