"Others have written wonderful reviews of this extraordinary DVD collection and I share their enthusiasm wholeheartedly. There is not one DVD set in my collection that I've enjoyed more than this one. Tony, Joyce, and Telma are three of the most talented artists to ever grace the stage and their show is a joy to watch. A show such as theirs is a true television treasure and deserves to be preserved on DVD in its entirety.
A long time ago television was really like this! It made you laugh and sing along. Tony and Dawn introduced us to many guest stars - some no longer with us. We laughed up a storm with Jackie Gleason, Ted Knight, Phyllis Diller, Dom DeLuise, Ruth Buzzi, Danny Thomas, Milton Berle, and the incredible Freddie Prinze. Tony and Dawn sang their own hits and every other style of music be it soul, country, gospel, or pop. Tony, Joyce, and Telma knew how to have fun with their guests and their audience and the camaraderie shines here! The audience finales alone (all unscripted) feature more humor and fun than any modern day sitcom. This show made you feel good and, thanks to this DVD collection, it still has the power to do just that.
I am fortunate to have ten installments of this series on VHS that were recorded several years ago from The Nostalgia Channel. Most (but not all) of those ten are beautifully restored here; and we also have the additional "Juke Box" feature to enjoy. The "Extras" are great too; but how great it would be to see the two Christmas episodes of "Tony Orlando and Dawn" on DVD! And then there's an appearance or two (or more?) of Tony with Freddie Prinze on "Dinah", not to mention their appearance together on "Chico and the Man". This list could go on, I'm sure, but when it comes down to great entertainment one volume simply isn't enough!
To R2 Entertainment - this is an outstanding presentation! To DVD collectors everywhere - buy it, have a great time, and introduce your children to Tony, Joyce, and Telma. Children need to see a show like this - full of warmth, fun, humor, and music. It may even influence them musically. I was the ripe old age of seven when "Tony Orlando and Dawn" premiered and before the show left the airwaves I had begun my own odyssey into music performance. This odyssey continues to this very day. Thank you, R2 Entertainment, for reintroducing me to my first idols.
Let's hope we see more of "Tony Orlando and Dawn" in a Volume Two collection because, like Tony's guest Mr. Jackie Gleason says, "Oh how sweet it is!""
Precious Memories of the 1970's

"This DVD set is truly a reminder of the quality of past television programs. The music was something you could sing along to and the comedy was truly worthy of the name. If you remember when this show was popular you will thoroughly enjoy reliving the memories. If you are too young to remember the show this is a chance to see what you missed. The set contains three DVD's with four shows on each one. After watching the first show I had to keep going until I had seen all four programs on the first DVD. The price for this set is not steep considering the quality you are getting. It would certainly be very easy to watch the same program several times. If there are people in nursing homes who would remember the Tony Orlando and Dawn show it would be an uplifting experience for them to view these shows again."

"I am a huge fan of Tony Orlando and Dawn. I was a teenager when they were at their peak and recall watching their show and listening to their records with great delight. I never dreamed they would ever be back together in DVD format and making an Christmas Album together. It is fabulous.
I did not realize back then the goodness that the show exudes. Tony Orlando seems sincerely interested in the audience having a good time and Telma, Joyce and Tony seem to really enjoy working together and it shows."
A MUST BUY.. GO GET IT!!

This DVD set is filled with wonderful laughs, songs, comedy, guest stars and memories you will want to watch over and over again. It's truly a classic collection of TV history that is a must have for any Tony & Dawn fan. Even if you are too young to remember the show, this is still a great purchase for anyone to make. You will see why Tony & Dawn were one of the most popular groups of their time. This is 9 hours of laughs, music and fun for the whole family to enjoy. I urge you to go out and purchase this truly awesome DVD collection. Believe me, you won't be disappointed. After watching these shows, you will probably find yourself looking for tickets to Tony's next concert! Enjoy!! Denise Molinaro
