The magic of modern technology. For people who were in primary school (or worse, not even born) when ABBA last performed Waterloo on stage, this DVD release can help you to step back in time. ABBA was the world’s biggest sensation in the late 70s. KISS had their swap cards and their make-up, sure, but ABBA was the boss, releasing hit after hit after hit. They were Eurovision gone right and, arguably, the most influential band of the times (which is a very scary thought, considering most of their songs’ incredibly banal messages). ABBA In Concert is the fan’s dream with remastered concert footage and top of the table Dolby digital sound. As well as the hits they played -“ everything from Waterloo to Dancing Queen -“ the DVD includes bonus tracks, like, for example, the previously unseen footage of Thank You For The Music. Yay. There are no interviews with the band themselves, although Agnetha and Bj?introduce The Way Old Friends Do. And there’s a booklet with enough information and bad hair to satisfy the pickiest dancing queen.
