A pair of concerts by The Kinks and Diana Ross and the Supremes, shot for TV in Paris, France during the 1960s, are being issued on DVD on September 25th.
The Kinks' Paris 1965: Broadcast Archive was shot in April of that year for a French television special to air that July, but it was abruptly cancelled when authorities deemed the group "too wild for prime-time TV." After a public outcry, it was eventually shown. The DVD features their hits "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night," plus five covers, including "Louie Louie" and Chuck Berry's "Bye Bye Johnny."
Although it's being issued as by Diana Ross, Paris 1968: Broadcast Archives is a March 1968 concert shot at a Paris TV studio, featuring Ross and The Supremes. It includes their then-current hit "Reflections," a medley of their past hits, The Beatles' "Michelle" and a handful of classic pop songs and standards from shows and movies.
