Donna Summer: Live and More-- Where's the video???

One of the best concert albums ever. Donna at her zenith! Full horn and string section........ amazing renditions.

.

.

I know video exists. I've seen clips on news shows. The video to I feel Love is from this LA 1978 show.

.

.

Where is the full DVD of this????

also....it would be nice if the 'Live and More' album could be celebrated with a super deluxe edition.That album was huge back in the day and it deserves special treatment.They could remaster the CD,plus add other live songs that were performed on that tour ("A Song For You" and "Could It Be Magic" are two that I know of).

Maybe they only filmed portions of the concert for advertising/newsreel/promotional use. Maybe the footage was damaged, destroyed, or lost. Maybe the estate or who ever owns the footage has plans we don't know about and is waiting for an opportune time to release it or is holding out for a lucrative licensing deal. Maybe Donna didn't want it commercially released and her wishes are being respected. If a full video document of the show never materializes, I am over the moon about what footage I have seen and am thankful and grateful it was captured on film and shared with us who were not able to witness it with our own eyes. Donna was a blessing to this earth. The world is a better place for she having been here. She lives on through the work she left and in the hearts and minds of the people she loved and loved her.

One thing that always made me curious is why the Casablanca label never filmed full length concerts in the mid to late 70's....Most of their artists were so visual, flamboyant and had big stageshows....they really dropped the ball on that.

Thank you for posting that!!!

I agree with what you say about her. She was a true blessing.

I just hope it does materialize. Someone posted somewhere they believe it once was available on betamax so hopefully it will come out.
