3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Ed August 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I could not wait to watch this classic. It have all the stars that it talked about, but I have to say I was very disappointed. It only has clips of the performances and I had hoped for all the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The really really big sheww June 12, 2006
Watching Ed Sullivan on Sunday night was an American tradition. He came out with his squinchy little body and his upraised hands and told us all that it was going to be a 'really big really big sheww' . 'Let's hear it for Curtis Le May from SAC. He 's going to bomb the Commies into Smithereens' Down there in the front row say a big hello to one of the great champeens of all time. Let's hear it for Jack Dempsey'

Ed would begin that way introducing the celebrities and warming us for Toppo Gigio the Little Italian Mouse or for , a young man from Memphis , Tennessee ( Ed could hardly hide the distaste as he pronounced the words ) Elvis Presley. "

The video contains records of some of the highlight performances, and also an interview with Ed and his wife Sylvia.

Highlights are wonderful, but my sense is that putting together a package in which the complete shows as they came on at the time would give a dimension no excerpts can.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as when it first aired October 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this special when it aired on TV nearly 20 years ago. My parents recorded it on VHS and we'd watch it regularly. I just purchased this and Volume 1. I'm pretty disappointed in both. Having watched them regularly growing up, I can tell there has been editing done. Shouldn't it be the other way around? Granted, some of the highlight performances are slightly extended (notably "Camelot"). But certain segments of Burt Reynolds are gone completely (I distinctly remember, following Albert Brooks' clip, it cut to Burt Reynolds saying how much he liked Brooks; that's not on the DVD). There are also some performances that are noticeably cut. I don't remember which volume it was, but one featured a sketch by Red Skelton where he talked about Texas. It's gone, it's not on either volume.
I really expected the opposite: to see what was aired on television, plus some, not minus some. As much as I enjoy the classic performances--worth the purchase--I'm disappointed with the editing.

The correct name of the videotape pictured is THE VERY BEST OF THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW, VOL. 2: THE ENTERTAINERS. Total running time for this Buena Vista product is 85 minutes.

In rapid-fire fashion we are presented with samples of literally dozens of famous performers in all fields. The color and b&w excerpts are in excellent condition; average running time for each is a minute. Sound quality is very good throughout.

To see a comprehensive list of all performers (including running times)

And for further fine Sullivan memories, check out the the hour-length HOLIDAY GREETINGS FROM ED SULLIVAN SHOW, also from Buena Vista. (VHS only)

4.0 out of 5 stars it's a walk down memory lane October 29, 2009
By Amanda
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased volumes 1 & 2 for my brother who was turning 50. He said it was the best gift he had received in years. He absolutely loved watching the bands of his youth and has watched them many times over (not to mention the delight in torturing his 15 year old daughter). The audio's not bad, the filming is somewhat cut up....but it's better to see something of these past performers than nothing at all. My husband is also 50 (I am 45) and we bought the set for ourselves too. Fun to watch, especially if having a party or friends over.

Talk about a walk down memory lane. This is such a great collection...bought both sets. Wish there was more. I remember watching Ed Sullivan every Sunday night as a family, followed by Bonanza. Those were the days!
