There is no greater collection of 50's and 60's rock n' roll performances than those from this historic show - period - existing in both crystal clear black-and-white and color video. Previous releases have been marred with narration by actor Jay Thomas and edited performances; this release sounds like more of the same.
Andrew Solt's marvelous book on The Ed Sullivan Show, "A Really Big Show", lists all of the performers who appeared on the program with the number of times they performed. It's amazing to me how much of this has yet to see the light of day - yet we continue to see so much of the same material re-released.
Why not issue the COMPLETE performances from these historic artists? Why preface the performances with meaningless narration - information that the buying public knows about anyway, backwards and forwards? Why not issue ALL of the performances by each artist on the same DVD, so you don't have individual songs by a particular performer on separate discs? Why keep issuing DVD sets where 50% of the performances have already been previously released?!?
If I were in charge, I'd start over and put EVERY performance by each performer (unedited) in chronological order (per performer) without narration - and let it run (eg. 'Herman's Hermits' were on the show five times; let me see all five performances on the same disc).Read more ›
