Classic Countdown Extras

Dragon's Countdown performance for Sunshine was played yesterday at 6pm from 1977 which was a stunning performance. Utterly superb, lucky I tuned in. Wonder what else Classic Countdown Extra's will feature.

Okay, so I haven't really missed much.

Split Enz will be brilliant x

Re: Classic Countdown Extras

Dragon "Sunshine" first got an airing back in 2009 during Australian music month - the Saturday night devoted to the 70s which was a great playlist. We put in some requests to the ABC at the time and we also got the other rare Countdown performance of Taste "Rebecca" the same night. Wonderful stuff and more from those neglected segment tapes!!

Re: Classic Countdown Extras

They will certainly be worth taping - Split Enz "My Mistake" is another orphan - there is a VH1 copy which has too many intrusive graphics and logos. Rarely gets played on the ABC for some reason - usually they only play the promo clip
