Respond2 (a.k.a. R2) Entertainment - who produced the wonderful Ultimate Carson Collection set - has sent over the full details of the long-awaited Tony Orlando and Dawn - The Ultimate Collection DVD set. The 3-disc package is pictured below, and has a firm street date of Sept. 13th. You'll get 9 Hours of the classic variety show plus several rare extras, all for $49.99 SRP.
    TIE A YELLOW RIBBON ROUND THE NEW DVD!

    They sold over 70 million records between 1970 - 1977, with three #1 songs and 2 American Music Awards. Their signature tune - "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree" has become somewhat of an anthem in not only welcoming soldiers home from war, but also as a symbol of hope for the return of missing persons. In 1974, Tony Orlando & Dawn's already huge recording career morphed into a hit weekly CBS-TV variety show, the result of a very successful 4-week summer replacement run. Originating as The Tony Orlando & Dawn Show and ending as The Tony Orlando & Dawn Rainbow Hour, the show received strong ratings and further endeared Tony Orlando, Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent in the hearts of America. Never before available on any home video format, this is first and only Tony Orlando & Dawn video collection of any kind - in living, digitally remastered color! You're gonna Knock Three Times for this one!
