Olivia (1978)
9 August 2016 | by musicreelsSee all my reviews

It was filmed on Monday 8 May 1978, in The Columbia Studios, Hollywood, Los Angeles and broadcast on Wednesday 17 May 1978 (ABC), USA and it was released on a laser disc in the USA in 1978. ABBA were special guests, along with Andy Gibb, on Olivia Newton-John's TV special. This was during "ABBA Month" in the USA. The songs performed LIVE:- 'Remember The Days Of The Old School Yard' (with Olivia and Andy Gibb) 'If You Love Me' (backing Olivia)'' Dancing Queen' 'Fernando' (edit) 'I Just Wanna Be Your Everything' (backing Andy Gibb) 'Have You Never Been Mellow?' (you don't SEE ABBA on this clip) Please Mr Please (backing Olivia) 'Take A Chance On Me' LIVE 'Shadow Dancing' (dancing along to Andy Gibb (not singing)) Hopelessly Devoted To You (Olivia) If You Love Me (all together)

You also see ABBA singing Money Money Money (not LIVE) behind a large glass box where dollar bills are flying down from the top as part of a board game 'skit'.

The 'jamming' session with Olivia and Andy Gibb included the following:- Help Me Rhonda Barbara Anne Opera bit ("Una voce poco fa" from "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" (The Barber of Seville by Rossini) - Frida Holiday - Andy Gibb Jailhouse Rock What'll I Do - Olivia

Thank You For The Music (with Olivia and Andy Gibb) as the credits rolled. Duration 48:25
