Entertainment Reviews:

Mojo - 08/01/2005
"[Q]uasi-hipster Cavett took rock seriously and often devoted entire programmes to top stars of the day..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/26/2005
"[The] performances soar, like Joni Mitchell's a cappella 'Fiddle and the Drum' and Bowie's 'Young Americans' soul shtick."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2005
"[Cavett] provided a younger and more cerebral alternative to the raucous, Vegas-styled jaw session on the other two networks. Cavett hosted with style, intelligence and decorum..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

"The Dick Cavett Show" gave the Woodstock Generation a reason to stay up late. When Dick Cavett joined the late-night talk show parade in 1969, his intelligent wit pumped a much-needed breath of fresh air into the format. The show offered guests a forum for controversial opinions and didn't shy away from an occasional debate about women's liberation or the war in Vietnam. "The Dick Cavett Show" also became the late-night home of rock 'n' roll, with a guest list that reads like a who's who of the era's top performers. This 3-disc set features some of the greatest live performances and interviews in the show's history. The featured guests include: Janis Joplin, George Harrison, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, Ravi Shankar, Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone, Joni Mitchell, David Crosby and many more!

Product Description:

While its ratings never matched those of Johnny Carson's THE TONIGHT SHOW, Dick Cavett's 1960s and '70s late-night talk show retains an esteemed spot in the annals of television history for its host's intelligent interview style and historic guest appearances by some of the greatest rock musicians of the era. ROCK ICONS presents a collection of 10 episodes featuring THE DICK CAVETT SHOW's most memorable musical moments, including interviews and performances from George Harrison, Paul Simon, Ravi Shankar, Sly and the Family Stone, and many more. Highlights include a 20-year-old Steve Wonder performing "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" just days after the song's release; a rare TV interview with David Bowie, who performs "Young Americans" with Luther Vandross on backup vocals and David Sanborn on saxophone; three appearances by Janis Joplin, including one with movie star Gloria Swanson and another just two months prior to her death; and a historic episode with David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Jefferson Airplane, and Joni Mitchell recorded the day after Woodstock.
