does someone know where this clip is from?
It was broadcast on BBC1 on Saturday 24th October 1981Hello Billy!
no sadly enough no. do you know on which channel swap shop was broadcasted? maybe it is in the archives from that channel, i do think they still have that in their archives because there is also archived material from abba on the swap shop in 1978 on youtube.
with kind regards,
When you watch the opening to Music, Music, Music on YouTube, there’s A Song For You followed by the welcome intro, and then the video of them at the piano pause, and a different Karen fades in, in between the paused Karen & Richard, and after a few seconds the piano fades out. Also at the end, they are still on the 4 different Karen’s and Richard’s when they fade to Ella Fitzgerald.I don’t think that’s the case with that particular song. The video is cleverly paused right before it would have shifted to the group part of the song in the original special.
Hello Harry,It's just CLOSE TO YOU: REMEMBERING THE CARPENTERS, released twice on DVD.
I'm a big fan of this video as well. Karen had the "IT" factor and it's exemplified in this video. This is why she had to be brought out from behind the drums and be the star. And at this point, she works the stage with confidence, letting all her effervescence and natural charm show through. Such a transformation from her stage presence when they first started out.I know that this video of sweet sweet smile is fairly common but i just like her personality in this one.
i posted a video on youtube with all the clips togetherIt's from the Bob Hope show. Same day as they performed A Song For You. In this documentary there are many Carpenters clips with very good quality spread throughout, intertwined with ABBA and Bee Jees stuff. It's a shame that my German is not very good..
I will try to post the time of the clips where they appear because there really are a lot of hidden treasures!
