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.
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.Read more ›
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.

I have loved this band since I first heard their music in the early 70s. Couldn't wait as they released new albums on just about an annual basis. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Martha Eich
