"Cavett Show" DVD

According to Yahoo!, the DVD featuring musical performances from the "Cavett Show" will have to be delayed. But for a good reason:

A late thumbs-up from Mick Jagger has forced the distributor of a DVD featuring musical performances from "The Dick Cavett Show" to postpone its release by two weeks to Aug. 16. In addition to segments featuring the likes of David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Janis Joplin and George Harrison, "The Dick Cavett Show: Rock Icons" will now boast almost 15 minutes of the Rolling Stones.

Jagger has allowed archival label Shout! Factory to include performances of "Brown Sugar" and "Street Fighting Man" -- albeit trimmed to two minutes each -- filmed during a July 25, 1972 performance at Madison Square Garden in New York, and two backstage interviews he did with Cavett.
Well, that was nice of him. I wish Dick Cavett (or someone like him) still had a show. I guess Jimmy Kimmel will have to do...
