The Bee Gees' brilliant follow up to Saturday Night Fever...

"As many have said here, the Bee Gees did something truly remarkable in rock history. They followed up Saturday Night Fever, one of the greatest, most successful soundtracks ever recorded, with an equally great album that was artistically and commerically successful. The album has three of their greatest songs, Tragedy, Too Much Heaven, and Love You Inside Out, all of which were #1 hits. The title track is one of my favorite Bee Gees songs. I remember having this on vinyl, and during the "disco sucks" years (when the Bee Gees were unfairly maligned as a purely "disco" act, which they never were), I put it away. I got the CD many moons ago, and I still play it a lot (along with the Bee Gees' box set). This was the last Bee Gees album for a number of years, as the "disco sucks" years forced them to hide for a bit (thanks a lot, Steve Dahl and Gary Meier, the two shock jocks who conjured up the disco sucks phenomenon). But luckily, the Bee Gees are once again being appreciated for being fantastic musicians. And whatever happened to Steve and Gary?
