Yes. Indeed. On that monumental night of Feb. 9, 1964 - Millions upon millions of TV sets (all across the Canadian & American landscape) were tuned into The Ed Sullivan Show.

This, of course, was the unforgettable evening when the Beatles (aka, The Fab 4) made their much-anticipated American television debut.

As 100s of hysterically screaming fans in the audience adoringly cheered the Beatles on - This one event, understandably, became a true pop culture phenomenon like no other before.

And, now - Today - 50+ years later - You, as a viewer, get a chance to relive the non-stop fan-adulation of the Beatles in the total comfort of your own home.

*Note* - Bonus extras on this 2-disc set also includes original TV commercials, as well as a clip of Ed Sullivan chatting with the Beatles prior to their appearance on stage.

You can find the Beatle songs on Youtube, but the accompanying acts and commercials, as well as Old Stoneface himself, provide context. The images are not all that clear, and the mixing is very rough. Sometimes there are set and lighting problems, but the man who first put rock 'n' Roll on national TV is herein introducing what he called the most phenomenal new act in entertainment in two decades (if I remember his words). Note the Beatles arrived in America before colour TV, so it is fitting that their 'Hard Day's Night' was in B&W. The songs of course are great, and it is great to see the musicians play their instruments, and watch them harmonize.
