Really great concert footage. I remember seeing this (or parts of it) on TV many years ago - in the early 1980s. It starts off as an ABBA on tour feature, covering the US leg of the tour, but the London part contains a lot of complete songs.
I know that back in 1979/1980 it was hard to film live concerts. The choice was either low res video (with the typical smears and other artifacts) or film (35mm or 16mm), the latter looking so much better but being much more expensive and cumbersome. This looks like being filmed in 16mm and the DVD being made of an excellent negative. I can be wrong though. Not much detail in the shadow areas - it won't print on film stock used available back than anyway, but color, sharpness and texture are excellent. Even as we speak digital video still isn't quite able to produce that beautiful, polished and silky image as a good film production can.
The music is - of course - terrific. Great arrangements, great performance and incredible sound, wonderfully mixed - as close to perfect as it gets. A must have for any ABBA fan. Nice bonus material with reconstructed full length tracks on the DVD too.
