    www.davisdvd.com says go to laffstock.com where you can see a trailer for this box set but I've looked and as far as I can see, there is no trailer. Can somebody PLEASE prove me wrong?

    BTW excellent line up, just a bit disappointed not to see Lindsey Buckingham, anyone else care to say who they would have like to see, you never know, we might get a volume 2?

    The trailer is here.

    Also, with all due respect to DavisDVD, it is NOT a Canadian exclusive release. They DO have an exclusive window from May 30 to August 12, but it WILL appear in the U.S.A. (presumably in stores) starting August 12th.

    There's a lot of good stuff not on there. No sale for me.
    They could easily put out a complete collection.

    Why does it take so many discs for 60 performances? Or is my math that bad?

    Are these the same programs that run on VH-1 every couple of months? If I remember, there were five of those as well, and all the clips I saw in the trailer were including in those shows.

    If it IS these shows, then I would have to pass. It was definately a nice watch, but so many of the performances are cut short.

    I find no small irony in the fact that SNL is using a clip of the Elvis Costello appearance from '77, gloating about how 'controversial' their musical acts are, when they banned him from the show til 1989.

    There's some cool stuff on here (Sinatra group is one of my favorite all-time skits) but there's alot of good stuff missing.

    Andy Kaufman's Mighty Mouse
    Joe Cocker & Belushi as "Joe Cocker"
    Robbie Robertson's The Weight
    Eddie Murphy's "Tyrone Green and his Reggae band" doing "We Gonna Kill The White People" (actually, I wish they'd release the Eddie Murphy SNL on DVD already -- it's only available at Costco as far as I know.)

    and the last disc is almost total garbage.

    Cocker and Belushi are on there. (Disk one) I agree that it's a hilarious performance - the look on Cocker's face is priceless.

    The disks are not quite the same as the VH1 specials - they are 1 hr shows (so really 44 min or whatever) and the DVDs are 80-90 min each.

    They do have Sinead O'Connor tearing up the pope's photo - probably the most controversial performance ever.

    I looked at the listings, and these are the programs that ran on VH-1 a few years ago to promote the two SNL 25 music CDs. The hosts are all the same (Chase, Oteri, Franken, Mohr). I watched these shows and they didn't include the complete clips - just bits and pieces. I sure hope that this set has the complete songs and sketches.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to say they were *completely* different, because they're not. However, they are longer versions. They're also in 5.1 sound.

    Where is a list of the performers who will be on this disc? Is DEVO on it?

    Philip, you can access the list on each volume here:

    SNL set

    And no, unfortunately there's no Devo. No B-52s either. The "new wave" groups aren't well represented.

    The most glaring omission for me is David Bowie, who did 3 songs on his appearance and one of them ("Boys Keep Swinging") was the most inventive music clip I ever saw on SNL. Does anyone else remember this? He made it appear, presumably through the use of something like a blue screen, that his head was atop a dancing puppet body.

    I heard that there were music clearance problems with Bowie, unfortunately.

    Wait, let me see if I got this right: this is just the musical performances and musical sketches? That's kind of disappointing. It could have been so much more inclusive.

    Well, it's called Saturday Night Live: 25 Years of MUSIC; it doesn't claim to be a season set. The idea was to focus on music.
