I haven't been this excited about a new ABBA release in years. Universal/Polar has made an excellent job with the new ABBA DVD "ABBA in Japan". I like everything about it, the packaging, the complete versions of songs etc.
My absolute favourite on this DVD is the documentary about the 1980 tour in Japan. ABBA seem so happy and relaxed both on and off stage. They are joking, singing (how bizarre to hear Frida sing a few bars of the Barbra Streisand/Donna Summer hit "Enough Is Enough"). It's a pity that even though we get to see quite a lot of ABBA on stage the music isn't live. I have a new dream now - a full live concert from ABBA in Japan 1980. Compared to how they looked on stage on the European/North American tour it's like night and day. Even Frida's dance solo is wonderful to watch.
I could write a lot more about this DVD release, but I don't want to spoil the fun for those of you who are still waiting for your copy. I don't think anyone will be disappointed. So if you haven't ordered it yet - you should!
With the Deluxe version comes three colour photos and a sticker, a nice touch.
