If you’re looking for a reason to stay in tonight, PBS has it as their ‘My Music’ series served up ‘Ed Sullivan’s Top Performers.’ The special, airing on PBS stations across the country, takes a look back at the longtime variety show host’s top music acts.

The Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Doors, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Mamas & the Papas, the Turtles, the Fifth Dimension, and Tom Jones are among those featured in the special.

TJL Productions’ TJ Lubinsky says of the program, “This special takes you back to the original moments of the artists and songs when they first broke, with a focus on the late ’60s, this collection of rock and roll classics exemplifies the defining backbeat in the soundtrack of our lives.”

In addition, a multi-CD set called “Pop, Rock and Soul’ is expected to spin off from the special and feature performances from Ed Sullivan’s Top Performers. The collection is said to include over 100 classic tracks.
