CHINA BEACH
DVD SET

Time Life Spent Over a Year Clearing 302 Songs, so that One of
the Most Requested Unreleased TV Series (*per TVShowsOnDVD.com)
Could Be Released with Nearly All the Unforgettable Music Intact

CHINA BEACH IS AVAILABLE
EXCLUSIVELY ONLINE AT
CHINABEACHONDVD.COM



FAIRFAX, VA, February 26, 2013 - Beginning with the unforgettable title sequence theme song, "Reflections" by Diana Ross & the Supremes, one of the hallmarks of China Beach, the groundbreaking ABC-TV series, was the use of music - iconic, emotional music from the '60s and '70s featuring everyone from Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, to Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder and dozens of other popular performers. It's this music, in fact, that has prevented China Beach from being released at all.

"China Beach was long seen by many as unreleasable because of the clearing of so many rights," said Jeffrey Peisch, VP of Entertainment Marketing for Star Vista Entertainment/Time Life. "However, the show's fanatical fan base and its standing as one of the greatest TV series to never be released on any format, made us recognize that the time and expense spent on clearing the music was well worth the effort."

Gord Lacey, founder of TVShowsonDVD.com, said, "When we launched the site in 2001, China Beach was, from the very beginning, one of the most requested unreleased programs on DVD. Fans will be thrilled to know that the music that made the series so memorable will be nearly intact on the DVD set."

StarVista Entertainment/Time Life spent well over a year clearing the rights to hundreds of copyrights so that the DVD collection would be released with nearly all of the original classic rock and soul music songs from the original broadcasts. The 302 cleared songs featured throughout the series include "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, "Nowhere to Run" by Martha and the Vandellas, "Baby, I Need Your Loving" by the Four Tops, "My Girl" by the Temptations, "I Got You (I Feel Good)" by James Brown, Manfred Mann's "Do Wah Diddy Diddy," "Brown-Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison, "Piece Of My Heart" by Janis Joplin, Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe," "Respect" by Aretha Franklin and many more.
