Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle DVD out June 3rd

We've been telling you about the major revival of Seventies superstars The Hudson Brothers, including a new MySpace fan page, grassroots campaign to get them into he Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in February, the upcoming DVD release of their freaky Saturday morning kiddie extravaganza, The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show.

Now the details are in:

VSC (Video Service Corp.) is releasing a 3-disc DVD set on June 3rd.

The set includes every episode from the second series, along with a bonus episode from the original prime time version of the show.

Also, Brett Hudson's basement-dwelling-kid character "Chucky" gets spotlighted in a bonus featurette "The Best of Chucky Margolis."

Cost for The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show - The Complete Series is $29.98 SRP for 355 minutes' running time.

Bill, Mark and Brett Hudson moved from rock ‘n’ roll to prime time TV comedy in the summer of 1974 with their two CBS television shows as well. The first was the brief (5-episode) prime time series The Hudson Brothers Show. Then CBS moved it from Wednesday nights to Saturday mornings, expanded the program's already family-friendly variety format to appeal even more to kids, and renamed it The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show (their pal John Lennon renamed them The Kings of Saturday Morning”).

Look for Mark and Brett at the Fest for Beatles Fans June 29-July 1 in Las Vegas and in Chicago, August 8-10, signing the DVD and other memorabilia-- and performing. (Brett, one of our pals from Frozen Pictures will be screening his new film, The Seventh Python in Chicago—along with the film’s star, Neil Innes.

The Razzle Dazzle DVD has a placeholder page on Amazon.com.

Well, I for one can't wait to see my childhood heros again in all their feathered hair, platform shoes and youthful glory! They had the musical and harmonic genius of the Beatles mixed with the comedic timing of the Marx Brothers. Not to mention they made my twelve year old heart go pitty pat! It will be great to see all the sketches "No thanks, we're trying to cut down...", Rod Hull and his emu, the songs and of course, "Heyyyyy Margolissss!"

What fun!
