 Bob Dylan and The Band chronicled in new documentary

 In looking back at the history of Bob Dylan, his work with The Band stands out as one of the most impactful and legendary periods of not just his own career, but music at large. On September 25th, a new documentary from MVD Entertainment Group will explore this celebrated partnership.

Down in the Flood will recount Dylan’s time with The Band’s original The Hawks incarnation, from the famed 1966 electric tour to the The Basement Tapes recordings. Both archived and new interviews will be featured, including The Band multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson, the drummer from the 1966 tour Mikey Jones, The Hawks’ original frontman Ronnie Hawkins, guitarist Charlie McCoy, and John Simon, who produced The Band’s 1968 debut, Music from Big Pink.

Pre-orders for the September 25th DVD release are going on now at MVD, and you can watch the trailer below. Dylan’s 35th studio album, Tempest, is due September 11th via Columbia Records.
