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:

Getting back to the band, it dawns on me why I always liked their music so much; it’s just so natural and inclusive in nature. Seeing them live bears this out as people from all walks of life show up and have a great time. Every show is a celebration of life and humanity. This dvd presents the band on a personal level so you get a real feel of what kind of people they are. Aside from the professional differences, and there are a few, the focus is on the music and the fans. The charitable work they continuously perform shows the kind of generosity that few bands exhibit. It makes me want to buy many cases of their wine (proceeds go to charities).
One interesting note; there’s an interview with Pat where he talks about the first show (in Chicago) where Tom couldn’t make it because he was so ill. That was my very first concert and I remember being hugely disappointed. I also remember the spokesperson telling the crowd that they could get a full refund (on their way out) but the band was ready to rock for those who wanted to stay. WOW! I’m so glad we stuck around because the band was on fire! Pat sang most of the lead parts and Skunk Baxter just tore his guitar apart! Too bad there’s no dvd of that show.
On a final note, BUY THIS DVD.
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.
This DVD has far surpassed my expectations. If you love The Doobie Brothers this is a must have.
