It was okay. Much of it was talking about Saturday Night Fever instead of their albums collective history. They literally skimmed over their first releases and singles. What documentary does that? I had to do my own Wiki research just to find out what some of the albums were even called. Then they skipped the rest of their albums and releases after that.



Only getting a 3 out of 5 for me. Their history should be more in depth than that.




have to disagree, they spend about ten to fifteen minutes on SNF and it's not till the hour mark they are even talking about it. True they do not mention album titles early on, but there are more detailed documentation done by this band on a few other documentaries including one that was done a few years back that was a re edit of the one they released for their final album "this is where I came in". What this doc did that none other did was talk to band members, which never was done, and I mean those other guys that played on the records with them, also some of the processes they used. It's a no win situation though it seems, if they do a documentary and it's super detailed people will say "Who cares about the Odessa album or the Size isn't everything album, or the ESP album etc..." this doc did what it had to do, and what it did was get people talking about them, I have heard from Rock heads who hated them because of Disco that did not even know these guys were from the 60's.



This is the only documentary I have ever seen on them. Never claimed to be a big Dan or have followed other docs. Just stated what I noticed. As a casual fan of theirs it did not entice me to want to know more about their albums since they were entirely skipped over...as if they were not important enough to discuss.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Were those early albums and singles hits in the USA?

Yeah, the Bee Gees had some hits here in the 60s and 70s before Saturday Night Fever. I remember hearing them on the radio.

regarding the disco demolition night.....as Gloria Gaynor has said,"Why did they have these records in their collections in the first place?" lol If you don't like a certain style of music,you should just ignore it.

I don't get this either, did they buy this records first just to burn them? lol

You can see there is group pressure and people change their taste by what the group thinks is cool.
