Stayin’ Alive b/w If I Can’t Have You
RSO #RS 885 Released 1977
OK, yesterday was the Robbs and today it’s the Gibbs. Released in December 1977, this single was #1 by February 1978. Man, if YOU were this funky, you’d put on the damn white suit too. You call it disco, I call it a smash hit.
Relentless beat, full of hooks and immaculately produced, I’m going to quote Michael Jackson here and just say “I think Barry Gibb’s a genius.”
The b-side is better known as the version on the “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack by Yvonne Elliman, but this is the non-LP Bee Gees version that could’ve been a hit on its own.
