Goldmine Giveaway: ‘Ed Sullivan Presents Rock ‘N Roll Revolution’ DVD Collection

GOLDMINE has teamed up with Universal Music to give away “Ed Sullivan Presents: Rock ‘N Roll Revolution: The British Invade America, America Fights Back” DVD Collection.

In the ’60s, a new sound of rock ‘n roll came across the Atlantic from England.  The “British Invasion” was a musical movement unlike anything America had ever experienced.  It sparked a massive cultural change in rock n’ roll and ignited a friendly and creative musical rivalry between British and American rock bands. At the heart of this revolution was The Ed Sullivan Show, chronicling this movement from the beginning by giving these new groups a national platform and broadcasting them into millions of living rooms across America.

On August 2, 2011, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) and SOFA Entertainment presented the DVD collection Ed Sullivan Presents: Rock ‘N Roll Revolution: The British Invade America, America Fights Back.  Hosted by Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas and Graham Nash of The Hollies, this DVD is packed with cutting-edge performances and insightful interviews from the musicians themselves.

When The Beatles landed on Ed Sullivan’s stage in February 1964, our world changed forever. The so-called “British Invasion” took America by storm and bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Hollies, Herman’s Hermits and The Animals were all over the record charts. Their beat – a reinvigorated brand of rock ’n roll was taking America by storm and kids couldn’t get enough of it.  How did America respond? We met the British head on with groundbreaking artists of our own such as The Beach Boys, The Mamas and The Papas, The Byrds, Bob Dylan and James Brown.

Included on Rock ‘N Roll Revolution is The Beatles historic first American television appearance with “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “She Loves You,” The Rolling Stones performing their hits “Time Is On My Side” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” Herman’s Hermits doing “Dandy” and The Animals with “Bring It On Home To Me.” The American acts showcase their own brand of rock ‘n roll including The Beach Boys singing “Good Vibrations,” The Byrds performing their Bob Dylan penned hit “Mr. Tambourine Man,” The Godfather of Soul James Brown doing “Please, Please, Please,” the one and only Bob Dylan with “I Don’t Believe You” and The Mamas and The Papas with “Monday, Monday.”

Rock ‘N Roll Revolution also includes additional bonus material that features two previously unreleased and quite revealing interviews with rock legends David Crosby of The Byrds and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas.

  9. I want to win, because it has the Beatles, James Brown, and Bob Dylan all on the same disc. They are three of the best ever.

  10. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see life in terms of music.”Music is life. Without music, the world would be silent and dreary. Music enfolds you in a blanket of comfort, giving you inspiration in moments of loneliness and sorrow. It is the harmonious articulation of people’s thoughts and passions utilized as a meaningful and complex expression. This genre was such a huge part of my life and threw these discs we can relive it all over. Thank You Goldmine.

  19. terrific collection, IT IS A SHAME that so many kids today do not have someone introduce them to the real music of the past, SOMETIMES I think I should become a music teacher just to be sure so many kids do not get to be young adults and say something so insane like “who are they? never heard of this?” seriously, my kids friends never saw a LP record and it is amazing to be able to win this and share it with our friends 🙂

  20. I first heard the Beatles (on Ed’s show) when I was 6 years old and became hooked on them, and the rest of the musicians from the 60s, forever.
