Rolling Stones Ed Sullivan Appearances Coming To DVD
The Ed Sullivan Show starring The Rolling Stones is set to be released as both a four show double disc set on October 4, 2011 and a deluxe six show deluxe double disc edition on November 1, 2011.Here’s the official word with all of the details:
The Ed Sullivan Show, the legendary live Sunday night variety show with a viewership of more than 35 million, was the unwitting catalyst that helped ignite music’s British Invasion. That musical assault kicked off a new sound that would change the world forever. One of the most significant and enduring forces in that invasion was a group of young upstarts who called themselves the “Rolling Stones.” They offered their own brand of gritty, rhythm and blues-inflected, down-and-dirty rock ‘n’ roll that would eventually conquer the music world, making them one of the all-time greatest bands in history. In fact, they came to be universally known as “The World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band.”
The standard edition (2 DVDs) includes four Ed Sullivan Show episodes, and the deluxe version features all 6 episodes of The Ed Sullivan Show, highlighting the complete Rolling Stones’ appearances, including 17 of their live performances — many of their greatest hits.
Each episode is fully restored and presented in its entirety, complete with all of the other performers as well as the original commercials. For the first time, these historic shows featuring classic Rolling Stones’ performances will be officially available in a single collection.
