A licensing deal struck between UMe and SOFA Entertainment Inc. has facilitated the launch of a new YouTube channel dedicated to the Ed Sullivan Show and all of its robust archives.

This means, of course, that a treasure trove of archival performances from music legends and icons will be made available to watch whenever you want. This is a big deal, considering many of these performances were not available (officially, at least) otherwise.

Rolling Stone notes that the channel launched with seven videos, with plans for more to be unveiled over the next three years.

Here’s what you can watch now:

The Temptations “I Can’t Get Next To You,” filmed Sept 28, 1969:

The Supremes “You Can’t Hurry Love,” filmed Sept. 25, 1966:


The Jackson Five, “Stand!,” filmed Dec. 14, 1969:


Marvin Gaye, “Take This Heart of Mine,” filmed June 19, 1966:


Gladys Knight & the Pips, “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” filmed March 29, 1970:


Neil Diamond, “Sweet Caroline,” filmed Nov. 30, 1969:


And finally, the Beach Boys, “Good Vibrations,” filmed Oct. 13, 1968:


Per Rolling Stone, here are some more performances that have since premiered since the Ed Sullivan Show YouTube page went active:
