Written on The Bee Gees: 'Saturday Night Fever' (1977):

Hi Rockner. You raise some great points. I probably should have said that the ballads SEEMED tailor-made for the movie, not implied that they actually were. I still think the true disco innovators came before the Bee Gees, but perhaps you are right that I did not give the Bee Gees enough credit for their obviously complex and amazing harmonies and arrangements. Compared to what else was happening at the time (punk, etc.), however, it's hard for me to use the word "innovative" to describe this wonderful stuff. In the end, what is most important is that we agree...the Bee Gees are great. Thanks for reading!
