Bob Dylan & The Band Documentary Set for September Release
In 1966, the landscape of rock music changed forever when Bob Dylan embarked on his first electric world tour with unknown backing band the Hawks. After the tour, the Hawks, who became known simply as “The Band,” recorded an album with Dylan in Woodstock, NY that would be known as the legendary Basement Tapes.
On September 25, this story of The Band’s rise to prominence with Dylan and their relationship thereafter will be told in the DVD release of the new documentary Down In The Flood. The film will feature new interviews with The Band multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson and legendary rockabilly musician (and Hawks namesake) Ronnie Hawkins along with others associated with Dylan’s electric tour and The Band. Fans can also expect rare footage and photographs from the collaboration along with the music that made it the culturally significant event we know it as today.
