Editorial Reviews

THE 4 COMPLETE ED SULLIVAN SHOWS STARRING THE BEATLES,DIGITALLY REMASTERED AND INCLUDING SOME PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED MATERIAL, TO BE ISSUED ON DVD BY UNIVERSAL MUSIC ENTERPRISES When The Beatles stepped onto Sullivan's New York stage on Sunday, February 9, 1964, to make their American TV debut, 86 percent of all TVs on at that hour--73 million Americans--tuned in. It was the most-watched program in history to that point and remains one of the most-watched programs of all time. Nearly 50 years after the four landmark live performances of The Beatles on "The Ed Sullivan Show," those legendary appearances with newly remastered audio and carefully restored video will finally be made available worldwide on home video through a major distributor. The 4 Complete Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Beatles will be released September 7, 2010. The 4 Complete Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Beatles was produced by SOFA Entertainment. "We used the full extent of today's technology," says Andrew Solt, Executive Producer and CEO of SOFA Entertainment. "The quality is better than it ever was, in fact, better than when the shows aired, especially visually. For example, the February 16 performance was from Miami's Deauville Hotel, not from a studio. The quality of the tape image was very fragile. We went back and improved it frame by frame." With a running time of more than 250 minutes, The 4 Complete Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Beatles presents those shows uncut, including not only all of the other performances but also all of the original commercials. Also included is The Cast of Oliver! (featuring a young Davy Jones) singing "I'll Do Anything For You." The audio is available in both mono and a 5.1 remix. In addition, the new DVD set has been augmented with approximately 13 minutes of additional footage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Holy Grail of TV Rock September 13, 2010
By Maclen
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you're here looking at this DVD chances are the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show is meaningful to you. This is ground zero for modern Rock music, sure Elvis popularized Rock `n Roll, but this is where everything switches from singles to Albums and later to an Art form. The performances speak for themselves; the Boys are in fine form and in spite of the antiquated, very primitive sound system they sound great. This new version of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan DVD has been improved, the picture is brighter and a bit more clean, the 5:1 surround sound is quite good. If you're playing this through a surround sound system, the subwoofer handles the bass parts very nicely with little or no audible rumble, the vocals are clear and the overall presentation is quite remarkable especially considering the circumstances. A must buy for anyone of a certain age who wants to bask in the glory of the old days, and for newcomers who want to see what the fuss was all about. If you have the original SOFA release and you don't have a surround sound sytem, the old version will suffice, if you've got the Surround Sound, then spring for the new one, it's worth the investment. You shoulda been there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! May 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is new SOFA "revised" release of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan.
(I have the original 2006 SOFA release, also)
-On this "revised" release please be aware of various issues:

-Particular significance of the 2nd "Eddy Show" from Miami Beach on this "new" 2010 edition from SOFA shows a MAJOR improvement over what you see here verses the previous 2006 earlier SOFA release of the same. -I suspect an earlier/better quality generation master CBS video tape was used for this 2010 released video to DVD transfer and that substantial digital work was done during remastering. They've really done wonders in both sound and video improvements (most notable in the consecutive 2nd "Beatles Show" from the Deauville Hotel in Miami Beach.) -Bravo here! Curiously also the Sullivan 1964 trio "Beatles Shows" (No. 1 and 3) of the 1964 consecutive appearance trio on this presentation show several beginning broadcast seconds that were mysteriously "edited out" of the original 2006 SOFA edition!
-But, let's not stop. The bonus material shown here is really terrific. I well remember Ed's interview in London he conducted on film of the Beatles just after they had completed "A Hard Day's Night" in May/June 1964. It's now here to see and latter Eddy Shows of various 1966 and 1967 Beatles appearances that were filmed in England for a global audience are shown (on the "Bonus Section" in this 2010 twin DVD package. Ed's intros are there but, the 1966/1967 Beatles' appearances are not. -May be due to an unresolved "rights" issue.
-I was 13 years old at that time point in 1964 and watched it all happening. Yes indeed! Extremely exciting real-time back live back then as it happened in a far more innocent yet much, much better world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Same as SOFA productions August 22, 2010
Overall it is still a very good set. These are the original shows featuring the commercials as it was aired on those very special days. I agree though, there is nothing new about this 2 disc set. I also agree that production must have switched hands. Regardless it is still worth the money for this very cool piece of history. Imagine a night with the family, connect a DVD player to a old B&W TV, shake up a pan of Jiffy Pop and go back in history! Love it!

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY September 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you own one of the earlier versions of the Beatles Sullivan shows don't bother buying this one. I bought the first release in 2003 and the picture quality is actually better than this version. As far as being newly remastered you can forget it, the definition seems worse than my 2003 copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why Is This (Excellent DVD) Being Re-Issued? August 19, 2010
Like other reviewers and Beatle People, I'm wondering why this is being hailed as a "new release" when most of us bought this the last time it was released a few years ago.

If there were any new bonus features or additional footage, I imagine they they would be touting those in the promotional material. So far, I've seen none.

This leads me to believe that the licensing rights to the original Ed Sullivan tapes has changed hands, and the new licensees have given it a new package and put it out.

If anyone here buys/watches this, please post to let us know if there is anything new or different about this release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! March 19, 2012
By Jessi
I didn't purchase this dvd from Amazon. So this review is only for the product itself.

As a nineteen year old person who discovered the Beatles a year ago I can tell you that this dvd is a must-have for Beatles fans old and new. The performances are in astounding quality for the time period and the dvd includes the full episodes of each show so that you you can see cool things like what commercials were like in the 60's. The sound and picture quality are both good, the quality of the performances themselves are impeccable, and this dvd does a great job of capturing the feel of the 60's. But for me, the best part of owning these dvds came this weekend. When I watched these performances and some snippets of the episodes with my 62 year old grandmother who is a huge Beatles fan and originally saw the performances in 1964 and 1965 live when they aired on television. Seeing the excitement and nostalgia on my grandmothers face was a lovely experience. My personal opinion is that everyone who loves the Beatles should purchase this and enjoy it with their family members. Truly something special.

I'm with you. While for historical reasons we should have access to the original B&W versions, a colorized copy could easily be included as bonus material. Not only has technology made leaps in colorization, but the colors could be made 'true' since there are many color photographs of the... Read More
