Editorial Reviews

One of the most important contributions Ed Sullivan will be remembered for is how he bucked the system and embraced R&B performers, giving them their first television breaks. In particular, in the sixties Sullivan embraced the artists from a small record company from Detroit - Berry Gordy's Motown. Sullivan introduced nearly all the Motown acts helping to break the race barrier in this turbulent period.

Motown Gold from The Ed Sullivan Show is a 2 DVD (3 volume) collection with appearances by legendary Motown acts including The Jackson 5, Diana Ross and The Supremes, The Temptations, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Martha & The Vandellas and Gladys Knight & The Pips. The collection is packed with classic Motown performances taped live between 1964 and 1971, fully restored with footage never before released. Some of the highlights include:

* The Jackson 5 ushering in a new generation of Motown acts with a medley of their No. 1 hits "I Want You Back," "The Love You Save" and "ABC."

* Diana Ross and The Supremes performing their No. 1 hits "Come See About Me," "Someday We'll Be Together" and "Love Child."

* The Temptations doing their No. 1 hits "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)" and "I Can't Get Next to You." * The Four Tops with their No. 1 hit single "Reach Out I'll Be There."

* Martha & the Vandellas singing their timeless classic "Dancing in the Street."

* Marvin Gaye's only Sullivan appearance singing "Take This Heart of Mine."

* Young Stevie Wonder captivating the audience with his No. 1 hit "Fingertips Pt. 2" and his classic "For Once in My Life."

* A never-before-released performance of Smokey Robinson & the Miracles doing a medley of the hits "I Second That Emotion," "If You Can Want" and "Going to a Go-Go."

* Gladys Knight and the Pips performing the hit "I Heard It Through the Grapevine"

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Classic Motown Fans September 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
There are no liner notes so here are the original air dates for each of the 41 full length performances included on this two DVD set. Many include Ed's original intro as well as his shaking hands with the group afterwards. This time there is no extra narration added (previous releases on VHS/DVD included narration). Many of the clips have been released prior. All eight performances by the Temptations also appear on their Best Of DVD. Of the twelve Supremes clips six are included on their Best Of DVD as well.

DISC ONE
Volume 1
1. The Jackson 5: I Want You Back/ABC May 10, 1970
2. The Supremes: You Can't Hurry Love September 25, 1966
3. The Temptations: Don't Look Back November 19, 1967
4. The Four Tops: Reach Out (I'll Be There) October 16, 1966
5. The Miracles: I Second That Emotion, If You Can Want, Going To A Go-Go March 31, 1968 This clip is finally released unedited. The last song becomes a sing-a-long when Smokey gets the audience to join in. The first of just two Sullivan appearances.
6. Gladys Knight & The Pips: If I Were Your Woman February 7, 1971 The very last appearance by a Motown act on the Sullivan show.
7. Stevie Wonder: Fingertips Pt. 2 May 3, 1964 Clip is in black & white as originally aired. The teenager was the first Motown act to appear on the Sullivan show.
8. The Supremes: I'm Living in Shame January 5, 1969
9. The Temptations: Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) January 31, 1971
10. Marvin Gaye: Take This Heart of Mine October 24, 1965 His only Sullivan appearance.
11. The Supremes: Love Child January 5, 1969 This is the second time the trio perform this song (the first time appears later on Disc Two of this set). This time they do the song live.

5.0 out of 5 stars In chronological order November 6, 2011
S. Paradoa did a great job of adding dates and notes. I have sorted his list chronologically in case anyone wants to watch them in the order that they aired. Fortunately you only have to change disks a few times to do this.

May 3, 1964 .............. Disc1-Vol1-Trk7 Stevie Wonder: Fingertips Pt. 2. Clip is in black & white as originally aired. The teenager was the first Motown act to appear on the Sullivan show.
December 27, 1964 .... Disc1-Vol2-Trk2 The Supremes: Come See About Me. Here in black & white as originally aired. A colorized version was previously released on VHS/DVD.
October 24, 1965 ....... Disc1-Vol1-Trk10 Marvin Gaye: Take This Heart of Mine. His only Sullivan appearance.
December 5, 1965 ...... Disc1-Vol2-Trk4 Martha & The Vandellas: Dancing In The Street. Their only Sullivan appearance.
January 30, 1966 ....... Disc1-Vol2-Trk7 The Four Tops: Medley: When You're Smiling, It's The Same Old Song, Something About You, I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch). Their first Sullivan appearance. Included here unedited for the first time on DVD. Previous releases edited out the first song.
January 30, 1966 ....... Disc1-Vol2-Trk13 Bonus The Four Tops: Nice `n' Easy. First time ever on DVD, this clip really shows off the group's wonderful harmonies.
February 20, 1966 ..... Disc1-Vol2-Trk6 The Supremes: My World Is Empty Without You
May 1, 1966 .............. Disc1-Vol2-Trk11 The Supremes: Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved Motown on Ed Sullivan! August 23, 2011
By LindsM
The reason I loved The Ed Sullivan Show was because of all the Motown acts and now I can finally have them on DVD. I'm glad someone finally wised up and released this collection. The DVD includes all the acts from The Motown Label and I am especially excited to see the one and only Marvin Gaye performance. The music out of Motown was unparalleled and finally we can get all the groups on one DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing collection! September 28, 2011
By Majjac
At over 2 hours, this fantastic collection is chock full of exciting, classic performances by some of the
most prominent artists of the Motown era! The image and sound quality are pristine and you get
some great bonus material too. My favorites were a never-before-released medley of Smokey Robinson and The Miracles
singing "I Second That Emotion," "If You Can Want" and "Going to a Go-Go." For of Motown music like myself, this is a must!

By Kasey G
This two-disc set contains over 35 performances from 1963-71 featuring all the Motown greats from Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye to The Supremes, Temptations and Jackson Five. The video and audio quality is great (NOTE- see the screen grabs I posted in the Images section of this product).

All the performances allow one to relive a magical time in music history with fabulous colorful '60s sets, talented vocalists performing layered, well-written material accompanied by cute choreography. Everything today is so overblown with elaborate sets, lights and trampy-looking backup dancers to disguise the fact that the songs are little more than repetitive hip-hop chants and the "artists" virtually play no instruments. You won't find any distracting, flashy theatrics or head-spinning, hyperactive editing on these shows--just good, old-fashioned, classy entertainment. Yes, some of the costumes are dated and unfortunate (like the Pips in green Keebler-Elf uniforms, or the Temps high-waisted powder blue Peter-Pan suits), and Diana Ross looks like she's sporting four pair of eyelashes during "Love Child" and "I'm Livin' In Shame" but that only adds to the nostalgia and fun.

Sofa Entertainment has also released separate volumes featuring the Temptations and the Supremes, but I think this set is more bang for your buck if you're not a completist. The Temptations set itself only contains two different performances (medleys) not found here. The Supremes set contains six numbers that are on this set and six that are not (four are standards, one is a medley and the other is a post-Diana appearance with Jean Terrell).

Though it's not complete, this is probably the best Motown set currently on the market.

***** Five Stars.
