INTRODUCING THE VAULT SERIES! A Never-Before-Released series of complete shows from The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. Now for the first time ever, we have opened up the vault to share with you the legacy of Johnny Carson - 30 years, 4,000 shows, 25,000 guests. The fans have been asking for more, and we've heard you!
We have big plans for this series in 2013, beginning with the Volume 1 release in June and we've already begun work on Volume 2! Carson Entertainment Group plans to release more shows this year and if these volumes sell well, just wait for 2014! Your support in this endeavor will make it possible for us to keep reaching back into the vault for more classic Johnny Carson - just like you remember.
JohnnyCarson.com has begun alerting fans of the late night legend that in June 2013 - next month! - they will release The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson - The Vault Series: Volume 1, the first of a new series of DVDs they plan to put out which dig deep into the Carson archives. Cost and a specific ship date haven't been provided yet, and we're not even sure so far if this will be available for general release, or through online sellers such as Amazon, or if this is only going to be directly sold by Johnny's website. Stay tuned and we'll try to find out. Our thanks to reader Anthony Castaldi for the heads-up about it. Below is the description of the Volume 1 contents, plus a look at the packaging:
