Bopping to Music of the Seventies

Bopping to Music of the Seventies

TWENTY-one years ago funk and soul music was repackaged into a slicker entity for dance floor consumption . . . and the discotheque was born.

The album which defined the pinnacle of the commercial disco sound was SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and songs by THE BEE GEES such as STAYIN' ALIVE, HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE and MORE THAN A WOMAN. With the recent re-release of GREASE to the cinemas and the London premiere of the SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER stage show, the 1970s are making a comeback!

This Friday night Club Phoenix is jumping on the revival with STAYIN' ALIVE - THE ULTIMATE BEE GEES TRIBUTE SHOW. The group covers all of the BEE GEES hits, not just those from SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. In a disco revival the soundtrack is being snapped up around the country.

National music retailer SANITY MUSIC has reported to have sold 6000 copies of the soundtrack since it was re-released six weeks ago at the price of $20.

TE and SANITY have five copies of the CD to give away to lucky readers.
