A deluxe package consisting of all seventeen of the performances by the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] on the Ed Sullivan Show will be released on November 1st of this year. It will include all of the band’s televised appearances as well as never before seen footage.
Billboard reports that two versions of the DVD will be released. The deluxe edition, titled Six Ed Sullivan Shows starring The Rolling Stones, includes several never-before-seen performances, including the band’s final appearance on the variety show on Nov. 23, 1969, as well as six full episodes of The Ed Sullivan Show.
There is also an abridged version, Four Ed Sullivan Shows starring The Rolling Stones, which will be released on October 4th.
“The best Rolling Stones TV performances are on these shows,” says Andrew Solt, executive producer of the sets and founder of Sofa Entertainment. “On the concert films and on other shows you don’t get the same production values, and here the sound is as good as the visuals. Groups knew they would appear in front of 35 million people so they rehearsed and made sure they would look good before going on. Knowing they were playing live on TV made them do their best.”
The DVD will also include performances by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Louis Armstrong[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ella Fitzgerald[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Flip Wilson[/lastfm], Joan Rivers, Rodney Dangerfield, The Muppets, and more!
