ABBA IN POLAND - COVER SHOT-FANTASTIC CLARITY OF PICTURE!




uniqueabba@googlemail.com

ABBA IN POLAND , the whole show from when Benny, Bjorn and Frida fly out to Poland to meet Agnetha right until their departure from Poland. Why was this show not included on "DeLuxe Arrival"? It seems so perfect for inclusion of the recent DVD release!

CLARIFICATION OF STATUS OF SOUNDTRACK FROM COMMENTS RECEIVED REGARDING MONO TO STEREO SOUND:

As this show contains all music performed to "live playback", ie: The group lip synched to the studio version of the songs, the mono sound only remains for any spoken parts, applause etc, when a song begins it is overdubbed by stereo, the mono then fades away to leave a 100% stereo rendition of the song, and at the end once again overlaps from stereo to mono applause.


I had two source tapes of the show, one with excellent picture but awful sound, the other with good sound and awful picture, so I have taken the best of both and married them together to get excellent sound and picture (with absolutely NO TV Station ID in corner of the screen.

The stereo soundtrack overlaps from mono applause and spoken word to the digital stereo surround music, therefore seeming seamless. A technique I used extensively on the REVISITED DVDs etc (Listed below this entry). The results are lovely!

I have also added a "First Play" slide show, this plays first when inserting the DVD into the player, some nice "Arrival" period pictures to the soundtrack of "Arrival", then the DVD goes to another menu screen where you can select to play the ABBA In Poland show in its entirity.




I also added chapter points at the relevant starts of each song performed. At the end the show ends with "Arrival" so rather than fade this out when the credits end, I continued with a few more pictures like a slideshow again to end the track at the correct ending place. Therefore the show runs for approximately 48 or 49 minutes.

RESULTS ARE STUNNING!
