anything negative to write about. As they continue, the topic of their new movie
comes up, and they talk in depth about the film. From there they talk about many
things, far too many to mention. In closing they discuss the music included on the

moment, from beginning to end.

Video Collection #2

1.) Back in the 1980's we were treated to many more specials than we have
the privilege of seeing today. One of the things that made "Home Box Office"
so popular, were their musical events, that they would air from time to time.
Olivia had the honor of being one of their featured artists! Her special was
titled "Olivia Down Under." Throughout the hour, we were treated to some of
the wonderful sights of Australia, while Olivia strolled through a variety of
musical settings. In a way, this particular special is like an "extended music
video" showcasing some of the songs from her new album "The Rumour"
while taking us on a whirl wind tour of her homeland. Some of the sights
were "extraordinary!" And there were so many different images of
Olivia scattered throughout the special, it was hard to pick which
ones to place here!

Throughout the years, I've
shared many of these clips from my collection
with my friends, and they have always been astounded by all the appearances
that I was able to record.  To ensure the highest quality possible, I use a "dual deck"
vcr when I'm sharing any of these moments from my collection.
 
 
I look forward to hearing from you!
