Released for the first time ever on any format, this exclusive DVD features two rare television concerts recorded by Barbara Dickson in 1976 and 1977. All fifteen live tracks from both studio sessions are also included as a bonus CD.
Not seen since the original broadcasts and remastered from the original studio master tapes, ‘Barbara Dickson in Concert’ sees Barbara and her band performing material from her first two best-selling pop albums, ‘Answer Me’ and ‘Morning Comes Quickly.’ In addition to ‘Answer Me, a top ten hit for Barbara in late 1976, the release includes ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall,’ Barbara’s second chart hit taken from the soundtrack to the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical, ‘Evita’.
Also included are the singles ‘Lover’s Serenade’ and Gerry Rafferty’s ‘City to City’, as well as Steve Goodman’s ‘City of New Orleans,’ a popular track from Barbara’s live repertoire which has never previously been released on any of her studio or live albums.
The DVD booklet features a new interview with Barbara in which she looks back over her pop career and the many television appearances she has made over the years. Commenting on the concerts included on this release, Barbara says, “I haven’t seen these since they were first broadcast but I have to say I’m impressed. They’ve been beautifully remastered and are a nice snapshot of what I was doing during that stage of my career. For those who enjoy my pop stuff, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!”
