Pee-wee's Playhouse; Seasons 3, 4 & 5 (Shout! Factory)

Posted by Steve Rosen on February 27, 2015 at 5:30am 0 Comments

Pee-wee's Playhouse was that rarest of things - a children's show that was simultaneously educational, enlightening, and entertaining. For over two-and-a-half decades, Pee-wee Herman - born Paul Reubens - brought his unique brand of television programming to a generation of modern kids who grew up with Captain Carl, Magic Screen, Conky, Jambi the Genie, Miss Yvonne, Cowboy Curtis, Reba the Mail lady, Globey, Chairry, Pterri,, Randy and other assorted characters calculated to delight young watchers.

This wonderful collection from Shout! Factory covers Seasons 3, 4 and 5, which represented the final 23 episodes of the imaginative show. Also included here in Pee-wee's Playhouse Christmas Special. Each of these shows has been carefully remastered from original film stock so you can now watch them in high-definition.

Playhouse was conceived with the idea that education could also be entertaining. The shows are highly influences by 1950s programs such as The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, The Mickey mouse Club, Captain Kangaroo and Howdy Doody. Though the show was primarily aimed at a younger audience, it found popularity with the parents as well. Pee-wee always strived to enforce positive ideals in his viewers.

Besides the live-action performances, you can see all the puppetry, video animation and prepared sequences that were also part of the design.

A thoroughly delightful DVD collection, Pee-wee's Playhouse will keep you amused for hours.

Mr. Bean: The Whole Bean - 25th Anniversary Collection (Shout! Factory)

Posted by Steve Rosen on February 25, 2015 at 6:47am 0 Comments

Rowan Atkinson in his portrayal of the hapless Mr. Bean is part Charlie Chaplin, part Monty Python, part the Marx Brothers, part Marcel Marceau. But inevitably all Bean. This classic and hilarious collection all 14 episodes of the English series that first premiered on January 1, 1990 and ran on the ITV network in the UK through October 1995.

Besides including all the regular episodes, this assortment also includes missing scenes from three episodes - Merry Christmas Mr. Bean, Do-it-yourself Mr. Bean and Back to School Mr. Bean - as well as a 40-minute documentary titled The Story of Mr. Bean. There is even a cartoon trailer called Mr. Bean; The Animates Series.

Bean is a unique and loveable character who routinely bumps other cars out of parking places, jumps in front of other people waiting in line and has a stuffed bear called Teddy as his best friend. He makes the simplest thing complex - his raison d'etre - and for all the world acts like an alien just landed on the planet.

All of the episodes here have been remastred and look and sound beautiful. You have never seen anything like Mr. Bean and if you have seen him on BBC television on reruns, you now have the opportunity to watch Rowan Atkinson perform his magic in every episode. You will choke with laughter.

playing his guitar and entertaining his peers

Posted by Ernie Dufour on February 24, 2015 at 8:11am 0 Comments

Ernest Cecil Paul Dufour, aka Ernie Dufour, is the youngest of children born to Alma and Angus Dufour, who raised their children on a small island near Freddie's Channel off of Georgian Bay, Ontario Canada.
Being raised on a island, and within a family where music was an important part of their lives, Ernie at a very young age familiarized himself with what later became his most valued possession; the guitar.
As Ernie grew up,school became a struggle for him. He never really felt he was fitting in, so to speak, so for the first time, he turned to his music and let it speak for him. By doing this, playing his guitar and entertaining his peers, Ernie discovered not only,could he play music,he had heard his family member play around the house, but he also had a talent for composing his own songs. Lyrics,which came to Ernie as soon as he touched his guitar,soon had a melody to go along with them and songs became a reality for Ernie.
As Ernie continued his journey in life, music became more and more significant. Words he could not express became songs which would take shape as he picked up his guitar. Many of the songs which Ernie has recorded have not been written down until after he sang them for the first time. These songs are pure- from the heart. Ernie, at times have struggled with this talent, or as he has described it"curse".

Tyrannosaurus Rex: Deluxe Reissues (Universal Music)

Posted by Steve Rosen on February 22, 2015 at 3:41pm 0 Comments

Well before Marc Bolan was a glam rocker and creating boogie gems like "Bang a Gong," he was one half of Tyrannosaurus Rex along with Steve Peregrin took, an experimental and psychedelic folk-oriented duo on a series of three albums.

All three albums have since been re-released in deluxe editions. Newly remastered, the trio of albums - My People Were Fair and Had Sky in Their Hair...But Now They're Content to Wears Stars on Their Brows, Prophets, Seers & Sages: The Angels Of the Ages, and Unicorn. The first two albums were released in 1968 and Unicorn the following year and feature Bolan on acoustic guitar and vocals. What makes this so interesting that in his previous band called John's Children, Marc had completed embraced the notion of electric instruments but in T. Rex he completely abandoned them in favor of more organic sounding acoustic guitars.

All three albums were produced by Tony Visconti [these were his first projects and would later go on to work with Bolan in T. Rex and subsequently David Bowie and many others] and provide a wonderful snapshot of Bolan's musical identity at the time. With Took banging on bongos, African drums, Chinese gongs, plunking on a  pixiphone and blowing on a kazoo while Marc strummed an acoustic and sang, the music was shot through with flower power psychedelia and the guitarist's unique vision of the world.

Each of the albums will be released as 2-CD editions complete with a 2014 mono remaster of the…
