Episode 61: ABBA were interviewed by host Eddy Becker and performed "Honey Honey", "So Long" and "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" (introduced by Björn) in a performance that is usually assumed to be from 1974.
Information and pictures from this show has been pretty few and far between for many years. The pictures at the bottom of this entry are the only ones we've been familiar with but now it's clear that these were from rehearsals (after all, Frida has no make-up on which is unusual for a TV appearance). Information about the shows has been released in a book and DVD package called Pop op TV 1960-1975 (DVD & book). Before the book, it was thought that only two performances were made "Honey Honey" and "I Do" but now we now they did "So Long" as well.
All early Eddy Becker shows (The
Eddy Becker Show from 1974 and this one and
The Eddy Go Round
Show later in 1975) have been erased from the Dutch TV archive. Apparently TV company NCRV saved Best of Compilations but
these were all destroyed in 1976 when the the show finished and the original
logs were thrown away when they moved to a new building.
Running order of the show:
Duane Eddy - "Rebel Rouser"
* this might explain why only one song survived on video - because this show was perhaps taped on video?
LOOK! It's "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do"
