"The Ernie Kovacs Collection" 6 DVD set was officially released on April 19, 2011, and it’s great! Purchase it DIRECTLY FROM SHOUT FACTORY! This set contains almost 14 HOURS of material which hasn't been seen in over 50 years! It’s the definitive collection of Ernieís work; a MUST HAVE for Kovacs fans everywhere! It comes in an attractive box with a 40 page color booklet that contains essays by Joshua Mills, David Kronke, Jonathan Lethem and program notes by set curator Ben Model along with some great photos that you've never seen before!
