The Gonzo Tapes: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

The Gonzo Tapes: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson was released by Shout! Factory on October 28. The 5-CD box set of previously unreleased recordings includes original cover artwork by Ralph Steadman, an introduction by film director Alex Gibney, and a 44-page booklet with never before seen photos from his estate.

Recorded by Thompson between 1965 and 1975, these tapes capture his thoughts and descriptions both as they’re happening and in reflection, as he would often go back to rerecord commentary. Filmmaker Alex Gibney, producer Eva Orner and Gonzo archivist Don Fleming were given permission by Thompson’s widow to explore the boxes of tapes stored in the basement of his Owl Farm home in Woody Creek, Colorado, left behind after Thompson’s suicide in 2005. Fleming transferred the audiocassettes and reel-to-reel tapes to digital files, and they made their way to the cutting room for the film Gonzo: The Life And Work Of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

I Got the Feelin’: James Brown In The ‘60s

James Brown concert DVDs from the ’70s to the ’90s have scanned as many as 50,000 units each, but there’s never been a DVD collection that focuses on James Brown in his 1960s peak. Until now. Shout! Factory is proud to correct that with the release of the 3-DVD set I Got the Feelin’: James Brown in the ’60s, the definitive look at JB’s on-stage prowess, including an acclaimed documentary, two previously unreleased concerts, and more. With full-length versions of many classics, including “I Feel Good,” “Out Of Sight,” “Cold Sweat,” “Try Me,” “I Got The Feelin’,” “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World,” “Bewildered,” and “Please, Please, Please,” I Got the Feelin’: James Brown in the ’60s is an essential part of any music lover’s collection.

Sports Night: The Complete Series 10th Anniversary

Debuting on ABC in 1998, Sports Night was an innovative half-hour program about a team of smart and likeable people who put on a daily live sports cable newscast, much like ESPN’s SportsCenter. This team is funny, disciplined, capable and fast-thinking—a group of consummate professionals, but in their personal lives . . . not so much. There they operate in apparent chaos, communicating every uncensored thought and feeling through a libretto of witty and honest chatter over the hum of the separate-but-integrated live show-within-the-show.

With breakout and memorable performances by Josh Charles (In Treatment), Robert Guillaume (Benson), Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives), Peter Krause (Dirty Sexy Money), Sabrina Lloyd (Sliders) and Joshua Malina (The West Wing), this was writer/producer Aaron Sorkin’s (A Few Good Men, The American President) first television series. And it was director Thomas Schlamme’s first collaboration with Sorkin. The pair, who would continue to click brilliantly with The West Wing and Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip, may not have known it at the time, but with Sports Night they defined a new style and raised the bar for all television programs to follow.
