All 17 of the  Rolling Stones  performances on  The Ed Sullivan Show  will be released Nov. 1 in a deluxe package from Universal Music Enterprises and Sofa Entertainment. An abridged version of the Stones on  Sullivan  will be released Oct. 4. The deluxe edition, titled  Six Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Rolling Stones  includes several performances that have never been released, including their final appearance on the variety show on Nov. 23, 1969. The deluxe package includes six full episodes of  The Ed Sullivan Show  while the Oct. 4 release is  Four Ed Sullivan Shows Starring The Rolling Stones. "The best Rolling Stones TV performances are on these shows," says  Andrew Solt , executive producer of the sets and founder of Sofa Entertainment, who researched the band's visual history while making a documentary on the band's first 25 years. "On the concert films and on other shows you don't get the same production values, and here the sound is as good as the visuals. … Groups knew they would appear in front of 35 million people so they rehearsed and made sure they would look good before doing on. Knowing they were playing live on TV made them do their best." Read More... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/thr/television/~3/_rIvT0mHY7s/rolling-stones-ed-sullivan-show-232179
