It’s not often that a clip turns up on YouTube that is as new and exciting as the description. “Rare” usually means something ypu’ve seen a million times before; “ultra rara” means it’s been recut but the same footage; “stereo” means it’s been redubbed with the current CD sound, often out of synch; “HD” means it’s been made widescreen by stretching.
But this week something truly rare and amazing has appeared: the concert section of 1978’s Olivia! television special, hosted by Olivia Newton-John with guest stars ABBA and Andy Gibb, in full stereo from start to finish, featuring parts at the beginning and end not included in the TV broadcast.
