    Vintage Abba

    This is my first Abba DVD and I wasn't disappointed. I never had the opportunity see Abba perform LIVE so this was unchartered territory for me in all that is ABBA. I loved the behind the scenes footage as each member prepared for the show that was only moments away. And when they hit the stage... WOW! It took me back 30 years! ABBA sounds as great in concert as their studio recordings! The only downfall... I was unable to view the Bonus features of this DVD due to what looked to be a manufactering defect. I tried three copies and each time had to return the DVD to the store. Hopefully I'll be able to find a copy where I'll be able to view these features. I would have given this DVD an overall rating of five if I had been able to view the entire DVD.
