I've been a Dylan fan since 1965, and I love The Band as well, so I feel qualified to say that this is the best Dylan documentary I've seen yet.

Today, it is hard to remember what a divide there was between folk, country and pop music in the early 60's. Many fans felt betrayed when Dylan went electric. They thought he had sold out.

The Band were there for those often traumatic days, which ultimately changed the music forever. The documentary uses rare footage and recordings, along with commetary from rock journalist Robert Christgau, producer John Simon, and musicians Garth Hudson, Mickey Jones, and Charlie McCoy to offer valuable insights into what was undoubtedly one of the most prolific collaborations in modern music history, which broke down the barriers between country, folk, blues and rock music.

This was fun, but there's not much new here. Maybe, as a self-professed Dylanoligist, I might have been expecting too much. Still, I watched it and enjoyed it, but won't revisit it. The one new piece of information was the interview with the drummer who was kept on salary for the year that Dylan licked his wounds after his "motorcycle mishap." I've never thought of Dylan as being generous or even fair minded in this way, despite the ethical quality of his songs from day one. If you're new to this period of Dylan that follows his great trilogy of mid-sixties albums, you will find the DVD fascinating. If you've read some bios or know the bootleg Basement Tapes, you'll still have a pleasant couple of hours remembering how this artist's instincts moved in a startling new direction.

I'm a big fan of Dylan and The Band so I'm incredibly biased but I thought this documentary was extremely well done for being "unauthorized" so to speak. I've seen just about every documentary out there on the Band and I thought that this did a great job at summarizing their relationship with Dylan as well as providing a background of Levon and the Hawks as well as putting the 1966 Dylan tour into context. Lots of footage I hadn't seen especially of the 1966 tour (clips of Eat the Document). The contributors they had were pretty much as good as it gets: Band and Dylan biographers as well as Mickey Jones, John Simon (producer of Big Pink and The Band), and the soft-spoken genius Garth Hudson. The film also plays samples of songs that I hadn't heard before and you can only find on the Genuine Basement Tapes bootleg. Only complaint was sometimes the interview dialogue was a little hard to hear during segments that had background music playing. Also wish they covered Dylan's appearance at the Rock of Ages concerts, but now I'm just nitpicking.

I must admit that I approached this dvd with a fair degree of scrutiny, due to the fact that it was one of those "UNAUTHORIZED" releases. I must say, however, both my friend & myself were very pleased with this recent release. Due to the fact that it was unauthorized, I had to look very closely at exactly who was involved in the making of this dvd. With some rare footage of recordings, some performance footage, and talking heads mainly with key participants that included rock journalist Robert Christgau, producer John Simon, & musicians Garth Hudson, Mickey Jones, & Charlie Mccoy, this documentary is very informative & enjoyable. Essentially beginning with some very early footage of The Hawks, who would later become The Band, & Ronnie Hawkins from 1959 performing his hits "Mary Lou" & Forty Days, the dvd moves forward capturing all of the important events that charted Dylans' progression with The Band between 1965-1976. Both fans of Dylan, as well as of The Band, will thoroughly enjoy this dvd. The Hawks attracted Dylan's attention while both were playing in Greenwich Village. Both drummer/vocalist Levon Helm & guitarist Robbie Robertson were in the electrified backup group at Dylan's controversial Forest Hills, New York concert of August 28, 1965. Despite a falling out between Dylan and Helm, Dylan then hired The Hawks-with drummerdylan's Mickey Jones in place of Helm-for his controversial 1965-66 world tour. This became the beginnings of a longtime collaboration for both parties . After Dylan's July 29, 1966 famous motorcycle accident, the group settled near the suddenly reclusive Dylan in the Woodstock, New York, area. Shortly thereafter Helm rejoined & they began to record what would evolve into "The Basement Tapes". The Band also began to record their own material as well.Read more ›

What else can be said about Bob Dylan? The truth is that, like the Beatles, Robert Allen Zimmerman's life (aka Bob Dylan) has been documented in unprecedented ways - these are true icons of our times. And he is still making music, "Tempest' being his most recent effort. It is also true that Dylan's life as a musician has had quite an interesting evolution. The very absorbing and illuminating "Bob Dylan and The Band - Down in the Flood" provides an honest look at one of those chapters in Dylan's evolution that left a mark in the history of Rock & Roll.

The documentary begins by informing us that "in 1966, Dylan began his first electric world tour -- landmark moment that divided his audience. Backing him was a Canadian group called The Hawks, later renamed The Band." These words serve to introduce us to the history of The Band in Toronto, Canada, and we are told that popular Ronnie Hawkins & The Hawks was kind of the main motor for the group. After Ronnie's separation from the group, it became Levon and The Hawks, named after drummer Levon Helm. With time, Levon quit the group when they went to work for Dylan, and they eventually became simply The Band. The film also includes material from the period in which The Band moved to Woodstock, after finishing their engagement with Dylan, and how they generated some interesting music during that time. Of course, we also watch footage from Dylan's performance with the group on the electric tour, in which they were booed by the people that didn't like Dylan's musical change of musical direction.
