R2 set to fly with ‘Orlando’

Portland-based R2 Entertainment is releasing the DVD debut of the “Tony Orlando and Dawn” variety TV show in a three-disc DVD set on Sept. 13.

Disc will accompany the reissue of the group’s entire music catalog for the first time on CD in a six-disc set.

“Tony Orlando and Dawn — The Ultimate Collection 3-DVD Set” will include highlights from the CBS series that ran from 1974-77, including comedy sketches with guest stars such as Jackie Gleason, Milton Berle, Kate Smith, Alice Cooper, Sly & the Family Stone and Freddie Prize, and performances of songs including “Tie a Yellow Ribbon” and “Knock Three Times.”

The trio — Orlando, Telma and Joyce — are also reuniting in the recording studio for the first time in 28 years to record the group’s first Christmas album to debut on Oct. 11, “Tony Orlando and Dawn — A Christmas Reunion.”
