  1. Why are there no comments?This is a rare chance to get a good recording of this show.I am writing to the Australian ambasador immediately to ask them to record it for us.

    1. Why don't they package this and sell it on DVD?! This is great!

  2. I have recorded it my HDD recorder. Any idea how to get it from there online?

    1. What brand of HDD recorder do you have? If it's Humax, you can copy recordings to your PC over the network through FTP.

    2. i have it now on a USB stick , i am uploading it to Youtube.

      I hope this version will be better than the one above.

  3. Oh come on...You can transfer from your HDD to your Pc o Laptop.

  4. pretty good video !!! Watching it now :-)
    Will try to get in online this weekend.

  5. I have a bootleg DVD of this show lying around somewhere, but it's pretty crappy quality. It's been a while since I watched it, so I can't say how it compares to this latest broadcast. I always found it too bad that this was one of the few 1984 shows where they didn't play The Top.

    1. Ok uploading right now to YouTube...

  6. You can watch the live stream on here (CET):

  7. This concert was filmed by the BBC for 'Rock around the Clock' only about 30 minutes was shown in the UK. at the end of the show they also did Forever but the 1" tape that was recording the show ran out about 3 minutes in!
