All the performances are live so there are plenty of rarities. Goanna - Cheatin' Man and Jo Kennedy - Body And Soul were performed on the night but were cut from the episode to make it fit under 1 hour. I was disappointed that Body & Soul was cut but that was done in 1983 so there is little we can do about it. Not sure why after 26 years they are still included on the play list when they were never on it in the first place unless the episode being shown is different to the timecoded version that I have. There is an Australian premiere of Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know shown on the episode as well which isn't listed.
I remember a Rock Awards that featured Billy Idol doing his Rebel Yell..and I thought that was a 1983 awards that aired in 1984.
I not too sure if that is the same one that featured Pat and Ross Wilson. But I am pretty sure it is the one where Tim Finn won for his solo album Escapade or songs from it (fraction too much friction, Made My day)
They also seemed to have cut the speeches from the award winners, announce the winner, and show a still of the band or artists, then continue on, there was one part where they came back from that still, and the band were walking back to their seats.
It seemed all over the shop.
Men At Work's Colin Hay also needs lessons in miming..LMAO
