Rare Music DVDs!

I'm a UK-based collector of pop & rock music on TV & video, specializing mostly in artists from the 50s, 60s & 70s. I've been collecting since 1981 & regularly trading world-wide since 1985. Listed here are just some of my vast archives.

Most of the DVDs listed on this blog were compiled by myself: I always try to get the best quality material (many of my DVD compilations have been upgraded and/or extended several times). As well as the "greats", I also enjoy compiling discs on less obvious artists that most other collectors ignore.

I attempt to list full details of shows / dates / songs where known. Feel free to correct or add any info on my posts, either by comment or email.

If you have a DVD list then please get in touch via the email address above! I'm a fan and a collector, and I'm always looking for more footage or upgrades. One thing I'm often asked is whether I'm willing to specially compile discs of odds & ends for people: my answer is "yes", but ONLY if you don't mind doing the same for me!

Please note that (with a few exceptions) I do NOT generally collect interviews, documentaries or audience footage - just TV performances, promo videos and professionally filmed concerts. All items on my lists are pro footage unless stated otherwise!

Note: The vast majority of my discs are in PAL, though there are some NTSC discs too (almost all European & Australian machines can play both PAL and NTSC, but there may be compatibility problems with PAL discs on some machines in the USA, Canada, Japan and a few other countries). ALL of my DVDs are Region-Free!

‘ABBA - Our Last Video Ever!’, taped Spring 2004 (Sweden & UK) – ABBA REUNION (sort of!)
The four ABBA members reunited (kind of) in the humorous film "Our Last Video Ever!".

ABBA - OUR LAST VIDEO EVER is the film about four hopeful musicians (a set of ABBA dolls made by Henson Creature Shop Limited who made The Muppets) in search of a record contract. They pay a visit to the Big Record Company Boss and his oily assistant, performing one hit after the other, cheered on by their manager. But things don't really work out as planned.

The film was produced by Radical Media UK and directed by Calle Åstrand. Apart from the doll-size versions of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida, the film is starred Rik Mayall, Robert Gustafson, Sissela Kyhle, Cecilia Frode, Loa Falkman, Micke Nyqvist and Per Svensson, along with a number of interesting extras (Cher and Eddie (the Iron Maiden 'mascot').

    1. Well there's 3 discs there (not 1), but you're obviously a big ABBA fan so let's trade instead! :)

      Looking forward to your list (email address at the top of this page).
