5.0 out of 5 stars Great
This DVD is actually a release of the band's own BBC TV special "Showaddywaddyshow" that was broadcast in December 1980.

Its release was all the more special because the original footage was thought to be lost for many years with only a few grainy bootlegs doing the rounds. However this footage is of crisp quality with excellent sound.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as shown on website.
This dvd is sold as PAL format, 2 that have been sent me have both been NTSC or Region 1 format, unless you can play NTSC/Region 1 format (american) do not buy a copy because it will not play on Region 2 machines, which is what most in the UK are.

This review is from: Showaddywaddy -Greatest Hits [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is actually a release of the band's own BBC TV special "Showaddywaddyshow" that was broadcast in December 1980.

Its release was all the more special because the original footage was thought to be lost for many years with only a few grainy bootlegs doing the rounds. However this footage is of crisp quality with excellent sound.

Many of the tracks are live, which demonstrates just how good the band were, not only musically but with very tight harmonies too, not to mention whilst all this was going on, there were two or three guys dancing around on stage to make for visual show.
However a couple of the tracks have live vocals over backing tapes, and one is mimed - this was down to the BBC as I'm sure the band would have just done the whole lot live.

The DVD does not contain the "special guest" Kiki Dee on the original broadcast, although she can be seen helping out with backing vocals on 'Teen Canteen'. Also, the very last track Wipeout is cut out of the DVD whereas some of the bootlegs have this going on for longer before it fades out.

However all this said I've got to give the DVD 5 stars as it shows the band's original line up putting on a great show before they had personnel problems in the next 4 years after this. Well done to Voiceprint for sourcing this footage and putting the DVD out there. Great DVD artwork too. All in all a job well done!

This review is from: Showaddywaddy -Greatest Hits [DVD] (DVD)
I was slightly aprehensive buying this for my mum who had worn out her previous Showaddywaddy dvd. Could this be as good or if not better. I needn't have worried. She's played it solid for two whole weeks. The track listings include every one of the favourites plus some excellent others. Qualitys up to scratch for 70's footage.
Plenty of other info bits to keep her happy. It's that good I think I might have to get a copy for myself. For true fans- a must have.
