Following the Bee Gees finished mixing their live album, they started recording songs for their subsequent album. They recorded the first song, but it was not exploited in the movie. The songs of the Bee Gees started in Le Chateau in France and completed in Cherokee and Criteria Studios. Barry was the lead singer on all of the songs because it was much established on “Children of the World” that his voice was currently the tone of the Bee Gees. With generally falsetto and a special breathy natural tone, Barry carried out much of the support and harmony vocals with Maurice and Robin. On the soundtrack of the songs, Maurice was occasionally distinguished for Blue Weaver on keyboards and bass guitar parts and synthesizer.
The original subject of the album incorporated the original studio adaptation of "Jive Talkin'". Afterward, LP pressings incorporated a version chosen from “Here at Last... Bee Gees... Live”. All CD introductions have incorporated the original "Jive Talkin'" that was to have been exploited in a removed scene, occurring the day after first Saturday night of Tony Manero at the disco, but as the series was cut for the last movie, the song was also cut.
Besides the Bee Gees songs, supplementary incidental music was composed and tailored by David Shire, an American composer and songwriter of theater musicals, movie and television scores. Three of his cues are also incorporated on the Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever soundtrack album. Five supplementary songs while heeded in the movie stay unreleased on CD.
