Doobie Brothers Releasing ‘Let the Music Play’ Documentary on Nov. 13
The Doobie Brothers have enjoyed more than four decades of hit records and world tours, and now the group will chronicle their musical adventures in a new documentary. ‘Let the Music Play’ is slated for release on DVD, Blu-ray and digital video on Nov. 13 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
The film uses interviews with band members Patrick Simmons, Tom Johnston, Michael McDonald, John McFee, Tiran Porter and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter to trace the musical evolution of the Doobie Brothers, from their early rock successes like ‘Listen to the Music’ and ‘Black Water,’ to the later pop era that produced hits like ‘What a Fool Believes,’ but also divided the band. Manager Bruce Cohn and producer Ted Templeman also took part in the film.
‘Let the Music Play’ also features live performances of live performances of ‘Rainy Day Crossroad Blues,’ ‘Without You,’ ‘Listen To The Music,’ ‘Black Water,’ ‘Takin’ It To The Streets,’ ‘Rockin’ Down The Highway,’ ‘Neal’s Fandango,’ ‘Long Train Runnin’’ and ‘China Grove.’
A press release for the project boasts, “With a total running time of well over two hours, this is the complete package for any fan of this amazing band.”
