As one of the most successful variety shows in the history of U.S. television, The Dean Martin Show distinguished itself via its host’s trademark style – he prided himself on never rehearsing, and gliding through little flubs with an easygoing charm that captivated audiences. The program also sported the crème-de-la-crème of talent at that time; regulars included comics Rodney Dangerfield, Dom DeLuise and others, and musical guests such as Duke Ellington and Tony Bennett. This release constitutes a “best of” featuring favorite clips from the nine-year run of the series. Celebrities in this compilation include Bob Newhart, Peter Sellers, Tim Conway, Florence Henderson, Ellington, Bennett and many others.

What a rip off……AMAZON sells Caterina Valente Live 68 CD&DVD without the DVD!!! and that’s not all….
a lot of you have contacted us after having bought some of our products at Amazon…….. and WOW……are you right to be angry!!!!!
Amazon, without our knowledge, have listed and are selling Caterina’s and Eric’s CDs which are actually CDrs burned by Amazon from Mp3s. In fact, if you look closely at the listings, it is written that it is so. But, apart of the fact that it is not the original CD, not the original booklet, for example, in the Caterina Valente Live 1968 CD & DVD, the DVD with the Heidelberg TV Special is missing!!!! (they don’t burn DVDs…. I wonder why)
WHAT A RIP OFF!!!!
Here are the cover pictures of the CDr listings, you clearly recognize them by the blue bar on top of the cover….. so if you see a listing with a cover picture with a blue bar…. IT AIN’T THE ORIGINAL PRODUCT.
So PLEASE, before ordering anything on-line, read everything carefully.
Be assured that we are doing everything to stop this…. as these are not the products we have released!
You are entitled to get the real thing!
In the mean time here is a link to the original Caterina Valente Live 68 CD&DVD at amazon.de (Germany)… no blue bar on the top of the cover
We will keep you posted and a big thank you to all of you who have informed us about this situation. It is thanks to you we can do something about it.
