Dunhill,

it's funny that u posted that pic because I had a question re: AM that I thought u guys could answer.

Other then the supposed "12:30" episode, did the group appear any other time on AM other than the episode that is pictured?

Funny that the show was in b/w and the picture is in color.

Hey Guys,

me again. Got an email yesterday that CD Universe has shipped the dvd.

Though the LT pic is in b/w and the Hollywood Pallace show is in color, I don't think that the shirt that Michelle is wearing is even the same pattern. (no fist a cuffs over this now)

Alby, thanks for posting the back cover of the DVD but I can't make out what it says, though at this point in life I'm part bat!

Many times color photos were taken at the TV shows for archive purposes or even for teen magazines, though the show was in b&w. I've seen some GREAT color photos of the Byrds on Shindig, too. It's also cool to see color photos of Hullabaloo since just about every show that survives now is b&w kinescopes, with 3 exceptions.
As for the M&P on Bandstand, I have them listed as being on the 2/19/66 show (Cal. Dreaming) and 8/12/67 (12:30) only.

That's what I thought. Thanks Gary. Hope we can find a dub of the 12:30 segment

I got my dvd and here are the chapters
1. Opening
2. John Phillips' early years
3. First Marriage
4. The Folk Music scene in NY
5. The Journeymen
6. The Virgin Islands
7. California Dreamin'
8. Monday, Monday
9. The American Sound
10. Recording the second album
11. Success and wealth
12. Michelle is Replaced
13. The Monterey Pop Festival
14. The end of the group
15. The death of Cass Elliot
16. Professional failure and drug abuse
17. Drug Rehabilation
18. Back in the studio
19. Credits

it seems that there is just more of John's addiction which I thought was already added to the documentary before. However, I would much rather have some stuff on Michelle's acting success, Denny's tv success in Canada and Cass's continual popularity rather then John's addiction! Ah well, at least I have it on dvd now and the cd universe price was good

I watched the dvd bonus material and it consists of extended interviews with Michelle, Denny and John. No clips or other pictures. Pretty cool seeing the interviews though.

Hi John,
Thanks for the information. It'll be interesting to see the extended interviews. Perhaps the reason they put in etended information about John Phillips' problems with addiction is because the documentary concentrated on him.
Take care, Nicole :mrgreen:
