    ABBA thread

    Criminal. Such a gem! I think I read somewhere that B&B always thought that the verses and chorus sound like two different songs and don't flow too well. Shouldn't have stopped them from releasing it as bonus track in recent years though. The harmonies are heavenly.

    ABBA thread

    Jazzy Jan, I'm SHOCKED you just recently discovered this great song. 😄 On the other hand I'm pretty jealous as well, because it must feel great to listen to a "brand new" ABBA recording as a longtime fan. 🙂 Love this one so much.

    ABBA thread

    Both great songs, right? I think Happy Hawaii is an early version released as a B-side. It's interesting how some of ABBAs melodies can be found in demos or early takes of their other recordings, e.g. Under Attack / Just Like That / When The Waves Roll Out To Sea (not really ABBA, I know) or Does Your Mother Know and Dream World.

    FIRST AID KIT - love this band so much

    Guess what's the name of their upcoming tour? It's called "Rebel Heart Tour" 😎
  5. Hello everyone, the acoustic version of WTG was one of my personal highlights of the Rebel Heart Tour. Could someone tell me which fan recording has the best audio quality? I'm still sad this wasn't part of the final release, so I hope to find the best version possible. ;)

    This is soooo exciting, ABBA is my favourite band of all time!!!
  7. That crane footage is amazing. Makes me think about all the breathtaking spider cam footage that must exist of the Sydney RHT recording.

    Drowned World Tour appreciation thread!

    What a magnificent tour, I love it so much. Visually and sonically stunning. Btw I actually like her hair on the DVD. It looks weird at first, but once it gets messed up a few songs in, it looks cool. I think it fits the Cowgirl section really well, even better than the straight hair on a lot of pictures in this thread.
  9. Amazing thread! Someone talked about Vogue during RHT being a new prerecorded vocal. I think it's just the original vocal pitched down which makes it sound like it's not even her singing it. It's especially noticeable on the final release.

    Btw do you think Trolldonna let them print background visuals for Nicki and Kiley on the first page of the booklet on purpose? I mean...when you think about it...you really can't hear them.
  12. I love the beginning of Body Shop when she messes up her cue because she can't stop chatting.

    It's grainy on my Bluray, too. Thank god it's not the case for the main show.

    I know It's misspelled though, that's what I meant.

    What is an "accordian"? Kiley and Nicki on background visuals...

    I need the full Take A Bow performance! The footage in the small clips looks gorgeous! Her smile!!!

    Unfortunately she had a cold when she performed in Japan.

    Deeper And Deeper sounds better than I expected. I can hear her live vocal a bit better than I remember from the broadcast.

    Sorry was always lip-synched though, except the last few lines.

    Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    It's not my intention at all to complain about those vocal (mixing) issues all the time, but I think it's so sad. She had really good shows on this tour vocally and they should've used these takes. Maybe she's getting more insecure about this or she just doesn't care about what's audible on the final product, but even if she doesn't, there should be people in her team who DO care about essential things like this. She's the biggest star in the world and the Rebel Heart Tour was such a wonderful experience and journey. She and her team should handle these kind of releases more carefully. She's my favourite singer in the world and when I revisit her live recordings, I want to HEAR her. She can even lipsynch some tracks, that's ok, but her voice doesn't need to hide behind all these backing tracks. Please forgive me my (repeated) moaning about this issue, but she deserves better.

    If it's exactly like the showtime version, then yes, it's one of the worst tracks in terms of vocals. Sometimes it sounds like there is no lead vocal at all.

    True Blue and La Vie En Rose should be on that 1-Disc.

    Haha imo LIB is the best so far in terms of vocals, but it's still bad. Love the sound apart from that!

    They could easily use vocals from earlier dates though. I don't get why they combine dozens of shows visually, but can't search for proper live vocals for each song.
