LOVE HAS KEPT THEM TOGETHER! In 1976, Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon hosted their own ABC-TV variety series - the CAPTAIN & TENNILLE show, a mix of music, comedy and guest stars. Only running one year, the duo opted out of another season as they felt somewhat torn between doing a weekly TV show and their recording career. Being accomplished musicians first and foremost, the show ended. Dick Clark took over the production for the last half of the season, which meant more C&T music as well as a diverse list of musical guests. Now, nearly 30 years since it originally aired, Captain & Tennille can do that to you one more time...this time on DVD!
DISC 1 begins with the first show from September 1976. Also included are C&T song favorites LONELY NIGHT and SHOP AROUND, plus Toni duets with John Travolta! Featured guests Penny Marshall, Bob Hope, Ron Howard, Leonard Nimoy and Andy Griffith add to the mix. Did we mention the Bionic Watermelon or Masterjoke Theatre?
DISC 2 - It's 1977 and the Captain & Tennille perform tributes to Neil Sedaka, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and the Carpenters. TVs original Charlies Angels drop by, as do Tony Randall, Ed McMahon, The Sylvers, Jim Stafford, Muhammad Ali and other special guests. Heard any good HAT JOKES lately?
DISC 3 features some production numbers
and Toni just CAN'T STOP DANCIN! Other music highlights include guests Ann & Nancy Wilson in HEART, David Gates and BREAD, RUFUS with Chaka Khan and an amazing duet featuring Toni with Dionne Warwick. Special appearances by Don Knotts, Vincent Price and George Burns round out the classic variety lineup. EXTRAS: Some fun bonus material, including Captain & Tennilles national TV debut on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, more C&T performances, a little Broddy Bounce, a few Muskrat sightings and other surprises! It's like Captain & Tennille never really said goodbye!
