Nightmoves, the music TV show hosted by Lee Simon in the 70s and 80s, has been resurrected on DVD.

Nightmoves first aired in Australia on May 13, 1977 on Channel 7. It was originally designed to be an adult version of Countdown.

Simon continued to host the show when he took up the job of Program Director at EON-FM. The show gave birth to the simulcast, a joint radio and television broadcast, giving the audience to chance to hear the show in stereo. (Yes kids, we still had mono television in the early 80s).

Nightmoves attracted the real music stars, as opposed to the pop stars. The DVD features performances from international stars Joe Cocker, Graham Parker, Peter Frampton, Santana and Graham Bonnet. The Aussie line-up features extremely rare to find songs by Billy T, Wendy and the Rockets, Kevin Borich, Mother Goose and The Ferrets.

But wait, there’s more. The 3 disc set also features interviews with Peter Gabriel, Steve Winwood, Phil Collins, Glenn Shorrock and Beeb Birtles, Bill Wyman and more. Nightmoves will be released on March 2.
