Each of the thirteen one-hour episodes in this complete first season exposes the essence of iconic and influential figures who are given the rare opportunity to speak intelligently and in-depth about music and their careers - how their classic songs were written and why; their experiences; their influences and the creative process overall, revealing new insights about their extraordinary work and lives. Unique performances - by the featured guests, by Spectacle's multi-faceted host, Elvis Costello, and by the guests and host, along with other spontaneous illustrative moments - further distinguish Spectacle as one of the most complete music television experiences fans could want. Disc 1: Sir Elton, President Bill Clinton, Tony Bennet, Disc 2:Lou Reed, Julian Schnabel,The Police, Smokey Robinson, Disc 3: Rufus Wainwright, Jakob Dylan, Jenny Lewis, She & Him, Diana Krall and Sir Elton John, Disc 4: Herbie Hancock, Kris Kristofferson, Roseanne Cash, Norah Jones, John Mellencamp and James Taylor, Disc 5: Renee Fleming, Bonus songs, outtakes and backstage footage, rehearsal footage, stills gallery and more.
