Well, after watching the re-runs of the 1984-85 episodes I can see why I pretty much stopped watching Countdown around that time.
A good tune here and there, yes, but way, WAY too much crap in general!

I noticed with the '87 episode, that a number of singers, seemed to be live. Doing the live to a backing track performance. I hadn't seen that on Countdown until then.

Afaik, the vocals were often live. .. hence in some you could hear the ''cardboard '' drums. ..the sound of the drummer hitting the cruddy ABC studio drums :-) as the drums would bleed into the vocal mic. .. I remember the studio sound. ..coming thru the tv... would often be very strange. .with that boxy drum sound coming thru
