The disco revival came in the mid-90s and white suits, dodgy shirt collars and trousers with massive flares were once again the order of the day. While this album's success drove people mad as punk's enemy in the late 70s, it is now seen as a great piece of musical history. The Bee Gees did write some meaningful songs (with very high voices) on this but there is further perfect disco soul from Yvonne Elliman ("If I Can't Have You"), Tavares and Kool And The Gang. This is one soundtrack that is better than the film, well, only just.
Music From M Squad / Music From Mickey Spillane's Mike...
