Amazing - i don't know how i missed this on youtube but thanks a lot for posting.

There is tons of Olivia footage out there screaming out for DVD release.

Toomorrow her 1970 debut movie was just released on DVD so i suppose that's a good start.

I posted the first clip a good while back --> viewtopic.php?f=2&t=63258&p=953539&hilit=+olivia#p953539

Re. the sit-down performance. This is not the complete show recording - only what was used in the final TV edit.
An hour of this informal segment was captured by ABC, but to this day remains unissued, both legally and otherwise.

It's about time Olivia did some concerts here in the UK - it has been a while to say the least.

This 1978 TV special also included Olivia doing a couple of verses of 'Jailhouse Rock' . Great fun!

She was one of the most beautiful women to walk the planet. Her and the young Crystal Gayle.

Not sure.

Olivia by far has the best set of DNA genes in all of show business. She does not look a day over 23. Amazing !!!

Anyone have a decent quality video of 'Don't Stop Believin', from 1976? The ones on youtube and other sites are atrocious.

Hey TCB,

Found the opening part of the Olivia TV special -

It's "Grow Young" that segues into "Remember the Days of The Old School Yard".

Those embarrassing school flashback scenes nigh on killed this special. What was Steve Binder thinking. :smt017

BTW, Agnetha looks sooo hot during the "Remember the Days...." sequence. :smt007

It's just something different to open up the TV special with. Not sure but i doubt it if ONJ recorded these songs. ABBA singing with ONJ on "Old School Yard" whilst it doesn't come close to Cat Stevens, was still great to see. Yeah Agnetha looked stunning.

Hey friends, Have a Look at this. Just Look at This !!!!!

I am thrilled to find on YT Olivia's stunning Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen of England.

Remember watching this on television in June 1980 when I was a mere babe in my mama's arms :lol:

Great stuff Robt. A very nice medley indeed.

If only ALL of this stuff was in A1 quality!

Yeah I know the sound is a bit out of synch with the video. I think that can be corrected though with appropriate software.
Still it is great to see this stuff again after 30 years ! I think that ONJ sang the same hits medley in her "Hollywood Nights" TV special in 1980. Be interested to learn if that is also on YT...

I totally agree. All of this footage is screaming for a proper DVD/Blu Ray release.

Re: Olivia ! The Complete '78 TV Special

Tue Apr 17, 2012 1:08 am

Oh no :twisted: Hey TCB If you did download it onto your PC can you re-upload it ?

I think ONJ had recorded regular TV specials each year between 1975 - 1982. Has the "Olivia in Concert" seen a DVD release ?
