Editorial Reviews

Let The Music Play is the authorized story of The Doobie Brothers from their beginnings as a biker band in California in 1970, through their breakthrough with Listen To The Music in 1972, sustained success and line-up changes in the mid-seventies and their change of musical direction and further success following the arrival of Michael McDonald in 1976. Worn out by non-stop touring and internal disagreements the band broke up after a farewell concert in 1982. There were sporadic reunions in the eighties before the band reformed permanently in the early nineties and have continued touring and recording ever since. This new film features contributions from all the surviving key band members, their manager Bruce Cohn and long term producer Ted Templeman to tell the full story of the band's highs and lows through four decades of musical evolution. / Bonus Features: Bonus live performances of: 1) Rainy Day Crossroad Blues 2) Without You 3) Listen To The Music 4) Black Water 5) Takin It To The Streets 6) Rockin Down The Highway 7) Neal's Fandango 8) Long Train Runnin 9) China Grove

To be fair I just got into the Doobie's in the last year. Saw my first concert of theirs last month (it rocked). So my knowledge on this band is some what limited. So this release could not come at a better time. The two hour plus Blu ray gives a great overview of a band that has gone thru a lot of changes over the years. It interveiws just about everyone who is still alive that has been thru the band or worked with them in a significant role (such as Ted Templemen the producer of some of their best records). The thing that struck me was how at peace the band is with their history. In most Band's members of one era would be trying to take credit over members from another. But here Michael MacDonald seems very comfterble saying his period of the Doobie's is not the true Doobie's sound. Don't worry he gets his credit for saving the band when the thought they couldn't go on after Tom Johnston had to leave for health reasons (bleeding ulcer). It also does not treat the reunion years as an after thought like so many of these documentaries do. It takes you thru record by record. Over all I was very happy with this documentary.
This disc also has about 45 minutes of live footage. I figured this would be from a current tour but it actually spans their career. It also has some of their biggest hits. Overall I could not be happier with this package.

In the essay by San Francisco Chronicle music journalist Joel Selvin which accompanies some great Doobie Brother memorabilia in the 8-page booklet inserted the BD case, Selvin refers to this 99-minute film as both a "sprawling documentary" and a "scrapbook", both terms that I think accurately describe the centerpiece of this DVD and Bluray package. When original DB member Pat Simmons discovered a trove of old videos spanning 40 years in his house, he - and the remaining DBs provided them to filmmaker Barry Ehrmann to create the film.

I'll admit up front that I have always liked the DBs but I was never a rabid fan and knew little about them other than what I heard on the radio. But, after watching this thoroughly enjoyable film, I know a lot more. And the snippets of songs I heard - there are no full performances in the film (how could there be? - they produced way too many hits) but nine are included as bonus tracks - brought back a lot of memories. All the important folks are here in open, and in depth, interviews. All the living members (four have died over the years) of the band, their manager (of 40 years!) Bruce Cohn and Producer Ted Templeman. Unlike many of these "story of" documentaries, it's not loaded with comments from music journalists or biographers. There's only one and, honestly, I forget his name and I'm not sure he adds much except from a fan's perspective.

The footage, both in the film and as part of the 43-minute "bonus" section, is not always the best lighted or sharpest but - if we are to believe Selvin's comment that much of this is being seen for the first time in years - it's certainly watchable. And, as the band sings in just one of their biggest hits, just "listen to the music". It's still great.

Yes I am a member of the Doobies fan club and have met them on many of occasions. This just tops off what I already know about the boys. It is fantastic with great films and scenes I haven't seen before. You can't just watch it once and put it down the first time. Believe it or not I had to watch it twice because there is always something you miss.
If you think you know everything about them your wrong. I'm sure after seeing this we all still don't know everything, but this is really a great way to feel closer to understanding the truth behind them and what all happened throughout the years.

Lets face it I'm one of the doobies bigest fans. Have attended two of their recent tour concerts. They are better than ever. I'm a fingerstyle guitarist my self. While I don't play any of Pat's songs. He has been a great influence in what I do. His song "Never Far From Home" from their "World Gone Crazy" album is a beautiful and touching song that much of the Baby Boomers can certainly relate to. I bought the CD and the LP Record version which has three additional tracks. Yes, my 1970's record player still works. I compaired the quality of the LP to the CD while playing them at the same time. The LP on my Denon had a better low end than the CD. This story of their history is just outstanding. Especially the obveous "film clip" of Tommy actually composing and relating to other members of the band of what he wanted "musically" as the tune progressed: just "Priceless". It's a blue-ray you'll you will want to watch five times just to get all the interesting details not captured in a single viewing. As a matter of fact I think I've talked myself into viewing it again right now!

As much as I have always loved the Doobies music, this DVD tells so much more about the history of the band. Learning some of this has made me respect how much it has taken to keep the band together for most of the past 40 years.
This DVD has far surpassed my expectations. If you love The Doobie Brothers this is a must have.
