Nice!Check out this great news:
Ed Sullivan Show Catalogue Officially Availaible On Streaming Services
Hopefully they'll stream footage from the Carpenters appearances on the show
The show started using B&W videotape in the early ‘60s. The very first Ed Sullivan Show broadcast in color was in September, 1965. The Rolling Stones performed ‘Satisfaction’, so it was a big one!
The week before was the last show broadcast/taped in black and white featured The Beatles, when they made their last appearance actually in the CBS studio.
Carpenters (as far as I know) were only on the show 2 times (both in 1970). The first appearance was the well-known one with ‘Close To You’ and ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’. The second appearance was the episode taped at Walter Reed Hospital. They performed the Bacharach medley ‘live’.
