Hullabaloo - 4 Single-Disc 'Best Of' Collections of the '60s Music Show Come to DVD this Fall

MPI Home Video brings NBC's 1965 variety program back to disc in September

Posted by David Lambert
    Transporting viewers back to the days of go-go dancers, mod mini-skirts and swinging pop-rock sounds, it's HULLABALOO! The top singers and groups of the hippest decade ever present their biggest songs, blending the British Invasion with Broadway and folk-rock with rhythm and blues. This fondly-remembered and highly influential 1965-66 NBC-TV primetime series offers a treasure trove of music that remains just as popular today.
Between 2000 and 2002, MPI Home Video released a series of DVD compilations for volumes of Hullabaloo episodes, NBC's1965 musical program often compared to Shindig! or American Bandstand. There would be a different host each week (including Sammy Davis, Jr., Petula Clark, Paul Anka, Liza Minnelli, Jack Jones and Frankie Avalon), singing a couple of their hits and introducing the various other acts. Those included such chart-topping performances as Bobby Vinton, The Four Tops, Lesley Gore, The Animals, The Ronettes, and many more!

Now, after public demand generated this past March when PBS used the series as part of their pledge drive, MPI is bringing the classic variety show back to DVD on September 10th with 4 different single-disc releases, at just $14.98 SRP each. They will be titled "Hullabaloo - The Best Of: Collection 1 through Collection 4, and you can see the package art for all four of them at the bottom.
