I just checked out a 2 volume DVD set from the public library. It contains 4 one hour performances of Ed Sullivan highlights. Lots of full length un-cutBeatles performances (20 Beatles performances!!).

I was astounded to learn that buried deep on these DVDs are performances of both Fred Kaps ("Card and Salt Shaker Trick", 1964) and Fantasio ("Sleight of Hand Artist", 1965 Dove Act and Silks)!!!!!

The set is called: "The Four Historic Shows Ed Sullivan Featuring the Beatles". You can obtain more info at You can buy the 2 volume set from them in either VHS or DVD for $29.95. Additionally, lots of old time comedians (Soupy Sales, George Carlin, Allen & Rossi, etc. Lots of old time singers and singing acts also). But, the two magicians' performances make this a special set. The DVDs are compatible with all DVD players.

Just FYI.


P.S. They are also selling two separate special Rock and Roll compilations of appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show. Such stars as Elvis, The Jackson 5, Janis Joplin, The Doors, CCC, Roy Orbison, etc. Or, The Rolling Stones, Herman's Hermits, The Animals, The Hollies, etc. These DVDs are also compatible with all DVD players. WOW!! What a trip down memory lane.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

Eschew obfuscation.
