Reviews

This digitally remastered two disc edition runs to over four hours, complete with all 15 songs performed by the band over the four appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show, including: "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "Help" and "Yesterday" and available to view with a brand new 5.1 surround soundtrack and carefully restored video. This special new package also includes an exclusive original Ed Sullivan Show ticket replica from The Beatles 1st appearance and approximately 13 minutes of additional footage. The added material, rare Beatles-related gems from other Sullivan shows, is placed at the end of each disc. Among them is a brief London interview with The Beatles by Sullivan which has not been seen since the day it originally aired on May 24th 1964; a 1966 black-and-white commercial for Beatles dolls introduced by Sullivan in colour; and the host reading a 1967 telegram from The Beatles congratulating him on the renaming of the studio to “The Ed Sullivan Theatre”.

Format: DVD
This 2-DVD set (with included facsimile ticket to the first show!) is a fantastic reminder of how good The Beatles really were. Four shows in their entirety, including hilarious adverts, really put their appearances in context, both historically and in comparison to other entertainers at the time. The excitement of their appearances is almost tangible to the modern viewer and gives a real flavour of the times.

There are several things to marvel at - the abilities of The Beatles as live musicians, the absurd amount of sponsorship and commercialism involved in US television (I nearly wet myself at 'Liptons'), the insanity of the audience, the surprising amount of British acts on the shows (Morcambe & Wise, Cilla Black etc), the constant emphasis by the masterful Ed Sullivan on how clean-living and respectable The Beatles are (hindsight being a wonderful thing), and, finally, the humour and togetherness of the Beatles themselves. This was a 'group' in every sense of the word.

The DVDs come with a few extras, which are brief but worthwhile, and you also have the option to just select The Beatles performances, if you so desire, but that would be missing the point. The only minor gripe is the lack of a booklet describing the background to the shows. This would have made the package stunning. However, there is no better way to spend 9 quid. Apart from food....and water...and warmth... well, you get the idea.

This DVD brings you as close as you can get today to the looming heights of Beatlemania. Cherish every second of it.

I've literally been a Beatles fan all of my life, love the 60's in general indeed! And these four classic Beatles shows just goes to show how great the Beatles music really was, the fab four at their finest in this great DVD package. You get all their great early performances with other acts inbetween, I wasn't too fussed about seeing the other performers really, I just bought it to watch the fab four in the comfort of me own home :) So if you're a huge 60's fan and love the Beatles music as much as I do, then this product is a must buy guys, it sincerly is, oh and the service delivery wise was top notch 10/10 all round then!

I wasn't sure what to expect of this DVD but I was very pleased with its content. The Beatles performance was the reason for buying it, but the rest of Ed Sullivan four episodes are great. Piece of pop culture history. Wish to be able to buy more of such documents from BBC and other big studios from those days

Well what can I possibly say that hasn't been said about the famous appearance of The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. Well to start with this set shows you how great The Beatles were at performing in front of an audience. Here you get to hear them in full voice and actually here what they were playing without screams all the way through. On here the band come across as four genuine guys with good humour and really likeable. It's not hard to see why they call it the 'Night that changed America'. Also really like the old tv adverts in between performers. I did buy this just for The Beatles performances but I must say I did enjoy seeing the other performers on the show. This DVD is a great way of getting you close to Beatlemania, The 60's and a different time in the world.

Can't recommend this more highly, for any Beatles fan this is a must have to your collection!

This DVD was quite entertaining but the best bit was the Beatles performing, what a band!! Some of the other stuff was good but a bit old fashioned compared to todays entertainment but hey that was fifty years ago!

Great sound quality though 5.1 surround wasn't all that impressive and though picture quality is very good for that period in time. The menu was good you can switch between watching ALL the shows as they were or just the Beatles parts. I did notice a fault with the 5.1 setting it was Mono so had to set it to remastered mono to get 5.1 (whoever made the menu got it mixed up) you also get a free ticket reproduction from the shows. Comes on 2 DVDs. I do love this package despite the error and poor video quality for that period though its black and white it is the best you can get from that period. If your a 60s music lover and Beatles fan you will love this though as I do.

This will take you back to the 60's alright!
The Beatles performances are definitely worth it but the rest of the acts mean that this DVD is really for completists.
