Perry Como's 1974 CHRISTMAS SHOW hits DVD 2013!
(Date Posted:12/07/2013 07:17)
Speaking of Perry, has anybody seen THIS just yet? This is the kind of stuff we've heard legends about, for years, but have never seen, often, due to so many things being tied up in copyright problems, and many of us have only gone on what our parents told us about how great these specials were. Being a Perry fan, as well as a CARPENTERS fan, I can't wait. It supposedly hasn't been seen since 1974 when it first aired on CBS. NOW, if only they could re-release all his other PREVIOUS specials and get the full series of The Donna Reed Show back into print! Perhaps this is a sign, of good things to come! (If it's already been mentioned anywhere else here on the board, I apologize, but I just happened to stumble upon it when DeepDiscount was doing a Black-Friday special on it for about $8! What a bargain for such an anticipated release.)
It got a release just a month ago, and already, on Amazon, it's got a perfect 10-plus-review rating. I just ordered mine and can't wait to view it. MPI and Richard Carpenter combined, must've made it happen; here's to MORE releases LIKE these! (Just wish it would've also been released on blu-ray as well, for all us high-def fans. But maybe MPI-video, will start reading this board one day, and pay attention.)
And here's the LINK: http://www.amazon.com/Perry-Comos-Christmas-Show-Como/dp/B00EMLRKFG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1386420692&sr=8-3&keywords=perry+como
The same company, also released THIS as well, about a month ago; which I'm considering ordering. MPI is pretty good in terms of obtaining original film elements to use as masters. Their Donna-Reed & Family Affair shows are rather in good pristine condition! Again, here's hoping they start mastering things in 4k though, for the blu-ray high-def market, which is about to conquer the DVD. Anyone who's seen either of these 2, or have any other recent releases of this nature, are welcome to comment and contribute. As we can ALL always use a little more "classic" in our Christmas; especially those on THIS board who follow it so closely, and continue to preserve it, along with Master-Chip.
