Storyline

This collection comprises the four episodes of the Ed Sullivan Show from 1964 and 1965 that featured performances by The Beatles. The episodes are shown in their entirety - including commercials - and while the Fab Four are the main attraction, many well known performers were included on the various nights: impressionist Frank Gorshin, entertainer Tessie O'Shea, singer-actress Mitzi Gaynor, band leader Cab Calloway and comedian Soupy Sales among others. The focus is primarily on the Beatles who sing some 20 songs over the four broadcasts. Written by garykmcd

The Greatest Act Ever
1 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing experience; getting a taster of the hysteria and sheer power of a live Beatles performance. The first number 'All my loving' was an historical moment and it appeared so. The audience went bananas and their background screaming was a perfect accompaniment to the music (the DVD gets a good balance; you can hear the music and the audience in the background). Pauls bass is amazing; he plays without looking at the fretboard at any time.

The first Beatles performance was followed by a magician in a tuxedo doing a card trick. The dead silence which accompanied his act was made only slightly less embarrassing by the fact that it was taped and not live. The Oliver kids and Georgia Brown were good and genuinely appreciated by the audience.

What also was fascinating is the effect on the careers of some of the other acts. McCall and Brill had particular cause to be miffed, being slated to appear right before the final Beatle slot. They, in their own words, bombed (I thought they were OK actually, given the circumstances). Anyway they recovered and made solid showbiz careers. They said later that they were in the midst of greatness......

This is an amazing set and highly recommended.
