"Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Legends"

This three-disc set includes 46 performances by some of the greatest artists of all time, including footage of many musicians playing with each other for the first time. The music is timeless. We get to see Jerry Lee Lewis, Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Elton John, The Doors, Eric Clapton and many more artists. Besides the great music, the DVDs include four hours of bonus material with many of the acceptance speeches, rehearsal footage, what happens backstage and lots more.

"The Canadian Tenors: Live at the Royal Conservatory of Music Toronto"

The Canadian Tenors - Clifton Murray, Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira and Fraser Walters - are four terrific singers. They blend pop music with classical, theater, opera and other styles, singing in English, French, Italian and other languages. They have performed all over the world and will be touring the United States. There are 20 songs on the DVD.

"Bing Crosby: The Television Specials, Volume One"

Bing Crosby was one of America's most famous entertainers, and from 1954-77 he starred in 30 television specials. There are four shows on two discs, and they include commercials and interviews. The music will bring back memories for many, as some of the guest stars include Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin, Bernadette Peters and more. The laughs, meanwhile, are provided by Bob Hope, Phil Harris, The Smothers Brothers, Flip Wilson, Edie Adams and other greats.

"The Virginian: Season One"

Available on DVD for the first time, this classic series was the third longest-running TV Western behind "Gunsmoke" and "Bonanza." It was one of the most ambitious shows and was great-looking with an excellent cast led by James Drury, Doug McClure and Lee J. Cobb. The writing was first-rate and some of the guest stars included George C. Scott, Bette Davis, Lee Marvin, Gena Rowlands, Ida Lupino and Robert Duvall. Percy Faith's music always added to the intrigue. This 10-disc set includes thirty episodes.
