Bob Dylan, The Band “Down In The Flood” DVD Set for Release

 

SIDVD571Down In The Flood is the story of the relationship between Bob Dylan and The Band, a group of Canadian musicians collectively known as the Hawks who backed Dylan on his first electric world tour in 1966. The story includes the legendary amateur recordings that they made together in Woodstock, their re-invention of American music and their continued albeit sporadic relationship during the 1970s.

The DVD includes rare footage, archive interviews, seldom seen photographs and the music that changed the world. It also includes new interviews with Garth Hudson; band producer John Simon; The Hawks’ 66 tour drummer, Mickey Jones; the man who assembled and tutored the Hawks and from whom they took their name, Ronnie Hawkins; Dylan guitarist, Charlie McCoy; Band biographer Barney Hoskyns; Basement Tapes Archivist, Sid Griffin, Isis magazine’s Derek Barker and Rolling Stone’s Anthony De Curtis.
