Just curious about this set. Haven't seen much about it. Anybody seen any reviews yet?
I 2nd that, has any one seeing any reviews of the 9 disc box set?
I've ordered this one.
I guess they'll be releasing some more of the 9 discs (individually) as time goes on.
Here's what Amazon says about the full 9-disc collection......

I have not seen no reviews for the boxset or the other 2 individual dvds so I decided to take a chance and ordered the 9 dvd boxset from Cd Now. It's 30% off right now and I used a 19% off coupon code and got it for $100.03 shipped.
Saw a content list some weeks ago, and e-mailed Doc Rhino about some major omissions (Chuck Berry, Everly brothers).
But my sense is that - Ed Sullivan was live (compared with Dick Clark) and that this is an amazing library of early R&R.
Very few of the VHS programs / compilations of several decades ago have come to DVD (where is The Complete Beatles, 20 years Ago Today, The Girl Groups, the 1985 Chuck Berry Concert, the 1983 Everly reunion Concert, and many more?)
Not sure if I can manage the entire box, so it would be nice if individual disks came out...
I have about 6 DVDs from the Time Life version of this set. I'm pretty sure the performances are the same on both the T/L and Rhino sets but each Rhino DVD appears to be equal to about one and a half T/L disks, so it seems like a better deal.
In any case, I'm very happy with the DVDs that I have. A few performances seem to be truncated (the Beatles on Help, Steppenwolf) and many of the the performances are mimed though I presume this was the way they were originally. But there are some great performances.
Whether or not you should get the complete set of individual ones would depend on how interested you are in all the acts. I'm assuming they'll eventually offer them all individually though I've just seen the first two listed so far. I might pick up one or two more if there's not too much duplication with what I already have. The Temptations/Supremes one looks interesting.
