1977 episode looks to have been dropped, but this last entry on the saturday morning playlist is interesting:
DRAGON April Sun In Cuba (Live on Countdown, Adelaide Festival 1978)
Was this from the episode that Rage kept telling us its tape was damaged?
Re: Rage Retro week 2 rage playlist - waiting on individual times
Very happy to see a 1977 repeat has been dropped to make way for a 1987 episode that hasn't been seen before. As they have twice promised the 1977 episode I expect it will appear some time in the next 2 weeks
4 Rage debut Countdown episodes plus Suzanne Dowling Rock Arena. They may not particularly be episodes I would have had at the top of my wants list but now, in the first 2 weeks of this Retro season, we have gotten 10 of the 174 episodes that had not previously been shown on Rage and I think that is a big win either way.
Fantastic that they have been able to show some of the Adelaide Festival episode. From what I knew of this, the picture is good but the sound keeps dropping out. I assume they have been able to fix the audio issues.
