Unforgettable concert-why not on DVD?
29 July 2006 | by (Largo, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like Ramiroserrano, I saw this concert on TV in 1979 and never forgot it. As a longtime ABBA fan, it holds a special place on my list of "must someday find" items. I liked ABBA's music before I saw the concert, but their performance of "Chiquitita" was so impressive and it was really then that I realized their true talent. Needless to say I bought the Voulez Vous album as soon as it was released. Why has the UNICEF concert not been released on DVD? If anyone hears of its release, please email me and let me know. Likewise, I understand the music was released on an album called "The music of UNICEF" which as yet I am unable to find. If anyone has a lead on this please let me know...Thanks
