Posted by David Lambert
Video Service Corp (VSC) of Canada has announced that November 10th will see the DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc releases for Spectacle: Elvis Costello with... - Season 1. Each format gets a 4-disc set (note: the DVD box shows "5" discs, but the studio info specifies it will be "4") running 650 minutes, at a cost of CA$54.98 SRP for the DVDs, and CA$74.98 SRP for the Blu-ray version. Complete details about the show, and the contents of the home video, can be found in the studio description below. At the bottom are images of the packages for both the DVD and Blu-ray:
    Elvis Costello's aim has never been truer in thirteen up close and personal episodes of chords and conversation with superstar singers and songwriters including Elton John, The Police, James Taylor and John Mellancamp.

    Shot last year at storied New York venues, Harlem's Apollo Theatre and NBC's 30 Rockefeller Plaza studios, Costello with his band The Imposters split each hour between colorful creative discussion and putting a new spin on classics like Purple Haze and Ballad of a Well Known Gun.

    The show, conceived and produced by Canadians, is coming off terrific ratings and reviews on CTV while raising the roof on audience figures on The Sundance Channel in the U.S. The DVD will be released in both Standard and Blu Ray formats in a 5.1 mix supervised by Costello himself, and will feature over 90 minutes of special features including interviews and bonus jams the likes of which audiences have never seen.

    Sir Elton John - The Police - Kris Kristofferson - Rosanne Cash - Norah Jones - John Mellencamp - James Taylor - Diana Krall - Bill Clinton - Rufus Wainwright - Tony Bennett - Jenny Lewis - She & Him - Jakob Dylan - Herbie Hancock - Lou Reed - Julian Schnabel - Renee Fleming - Smokey Robinson

    • All episodes are extended versions with performances not seen on CTV
    • Four disc set with over 90 minutes of Special Features including Behind-The-Scenes interviews with Elvis Costello and other performers, Bonus Songs, and more.
    • Bonus Songs cut specifically for the DVD include: Purple Haze, Ballad of a Well Known Gun, You Win Again, Beginning to See the Light, No More Tear-Stained Make-Up and moreā€¦
    • Season Two is in pre-production and slated for appearances are the likes of Bono, Paul McCartney and others...

    This is a historic TV series that is a must for all audiophiles.
