Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 1978-2010
May 14 sees the release of an interesting 3disc set in Denmark. 2 DVD and one CD feature many highlights of Danish Eurovision history. The DVDs have 50 clips from the original national finals (Melodi Grand Prix) including the 2010 winner In A Moment Like This and Hera Björks Someday (See Iceland 2010)
The CD has 20 tracks of which 18 are Danish Eurovision entries.
As the title suggests it only features entries from 1978 to 2010, after Denmarks infamous Eurovision drought.
Denmark participated from 1957 to 1966, then decided there were more important cultural things spend their money on. They came back to their senses in 1978 and have been on the Eurovision stage ever since. (with the exception of the few years Denmark were forced to stay home in the dark days of the pre-semi-too-many-countries regulations)
