Along for the ride were the unknown Canadian band The Hawks, made up of Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel and Robbie Robertson. Of course, they eventually became known as The Band.

On September 25, MVD Entertainment Group will release the documentary Down in the Flood, telling the story of the relationship between Dylan and The Band, the legendary amateur recordings that they made together in Woodstock, their re-invention of American music and their continued albeit sporadic relationship during the 1970s.

Featuring new interviews with Garth Hudson; Band producer John Simon; The Hawks’ 66 tour drummer, Mickey Jones; the man who assembled and tutored the Hawks and from whom they took their name, Ronnie Hawkins; Dylan guitarist, Charlie McCoy; Band biographer Barney Hoskyns; Basement Tapes Archivist, Sid Griffin, Isis magazine’s Derek Barker and Rolling Stone’s Anthony De Curtis.

Also features rare footage, archive interviews, seldom seen photographs and the music that changed the world, all at once making for the finest program on this element of Bob Dylan and The Band’s respective and communal careers yet to emerge.
