Storyline

First appearing before music videos had become commonplace, this show featured the week's top hits in pop music. Guest performers would occasionally appear on the show to play their songs. Typically, however, the only visual accompaniment to the music was the Solid Gold Dancers, a dozen or so dancers in skimpy costumes who would perform interpretive renditions of such hits as "Down Under" and "Maniac".

Solid Gold on DVD!
7 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching 'Solid Gold' on television in the 1980s and getting excited about the artists that would perform "live" each night. Of course, the artists' performances were usually 'lip-synced' to a playback of their current hit... but who cared when you were able to see your favorite singers outside of a glossy and sometimes over-produced music video! This show is so firmly locked into it's decade that it serves as the ultimate show in surveying what eighties music had to offer. I only wish the production company would see the value in releasing a series of DVDs showcasing the "best" performances of each year... that would make a collection of 9 - 10 DVDs (show aired 1980-1988). We have currently been in a 'totally' 80s retro period for the last several years, so it makes perfect sense to release a collection of the best performances!!! Everyone I've ever talked to, that remembers this 'awesome' show, has said they would LOVE to see this come back from the dead on DVD. A Tip For The Current Copyright Holder Of This Show: Release This Show On DVD... 'Like Yesterday!' : )
