Good news, but have these performances all been previously issued on DVD?

Yes, this appears to be a recycling of material from the previously-released volumes in  "Best of" compilations (as opposed to the originally-released complete shows).

I was excited for a second. I will pass. I hate best of clip shows. I want full episodes. I can accept best of's here with several full episodes of the series selected though.

The PBS dvd's from a few months back DID have some new clips added that weren't on the original 4 dvd's MPI put out. I assume these new dvd's are the same as the PBS ones?

Now that I looked at the track listings for these, I'll pass for sure. No Rolling Stones or any of the "cooler" groups, these look like mostly middle of the road or "light" acts. Wimpy-poo-poo.

I pulled out my old Hullabaloo DVDs for comparison and I can see that the new sets definitely feature some new material. But the original 3 DVDs provide over 13 hours of viewing, while these 4 new sets look like their total time is probably less that 5 hours.

Thanks for the info, John. Having got the original MPI sets, I'd be interested in buying this for the new material. Yes, it would be nice to have all the complete shows but sometimes you have to just take what you can get.

Surely no one with any sense or knowledge of how music licensing works can possibly expect that a show like this would ever be released in complete form.

Do you mean complete as in the entire run of the series, or complete as in a show in it's entirety? The previous MPI releases were complete shows. (The only exception being one song cut from a "Top Of The Pops" medley on the DVD version that was intact on the VHS release).

 

MPI has been fairly aggresive at tackling tough clearance items, including episodes of "Music Scene". I'll be interested to see the outcome of  their current project - a release of "The Bobby Darin Show".
