This set includes the long lost Christmas special from The Entertainers! A MUST for Carol Collectors!
Back in June we first passed along word
that November 6th
will see the release of A Carol Burnett Christmas: Special Collectors Edition
on DVD. This single-disc release priced at $19.98 SRP includes 4 total episodes, including a bonus rare "lost" episode from the first season of Candid Camera
. This is coming from Legendary Entertainment Alliance and distributor eOne Entertainment.
Now we've learned that on the same date, November 6th
, eOne will release the same title with a Bonus CD, with the soundtrack from this DVD. In fact, the CD is already available separately since last week, a $14.98 (SRP) value. But you can get both DVD and CD together for $29.98 SRP, a savings of at roughly five dollars (it may vary, depending on retailer discounts). Note that the cover art for these two variations are a bit different in that one says "four episodes," and the other says "three episodes plus rare Candid Camera
episode." In the end it's two ways of saying the same thing, and you might consider it a sort-of typo. The folks at distributor eOne informed be today, however, that the artwork might not be final and could still be subject to change. Here's a look at what we have now, however, plus a link to pre-order either version from Amazon (note that Amazon currently shows an incorrect date on the with-CD-version):
