Great documentary.

This is the story of Bob Dylan and The Band, the legendary amateur recordings that they made together in Woodstock, their re-invention of American music and their continued relationship during the late 1960s and 1970s. Featuring the first interview with Garth Hudson in over a decade, together with contributions from Band producer John Simon; 66 tour drummer Mickey Jones; Hawks mentor Ronnie Hawkins and many more, plus rare footage, archive interviews and the music that changed the world. This is the finest program on Dylan and The Band s respective and communal careers yet to emerge.

  1. Mickey Jones interview (verbatim) from Extras section of ‘Down In The Flood’ doc RE “Play fucking loud”

    “It was definitely @ the Manchester Free Trade Hall that the guy yelled ‘Judas.’ Bob walked up to the mic and he said ‘I don’t believe you. You’re a liar.’ In Scorsese’s doc. ‘No Direction Home,’ he tries to synch up the words ‘play..fucking..loud’ to Bob. That didn’t happen. That’s a mistake, and I will say to my grave that he manipulated that, and if you look at that footage 10 times, you’re gonna see 2 things: the lip does not match up to Bob, whoever said ‘play fucking loud’ said it, was almost yelling, and when he manipulated those words into Bob’s mouth, Bob’s mouth is right in Robbie’s ear. He wouldn’t be yelling in Robbie’s ear. The other thing is, there’s a bit of a British accent there. Because you can hear the guy say (MJ in a faux British accent) ‘play fucking loud.’ It’s not Bob Dylan. For 35 years, everybody though it was me, because I was the guy who played loud and kicked it off loud. It wasn’t me. We don’t know who it is. Nobody knows who it is. But here’s my theory. I believe it was one of our stage crew. We had a stage crew of 4/5 guys that went with us on the whole tour. And they would be right on the stage if anything went wrong. I believe it was one of our stage crew, who were English, standing up for us in the moment. Because they had seen this booing the whole tour, and when that guy yelled ‘Judas,’ This guy got sick of hearing it and he said (again MJ in a faux British accent) ‘Play fucking loud.’ And that’s when I hit the largest, loudest flam on my snare drum I ever hit. Not only on that tour but maybe in my career..I don’t know. And, uh, Scorsese got it wrong.”

  2. Great doc, watched it several times already, but I wish you would have posted the Mickey Jones extended interview clips in the “extras” section for people to see. It’s as good as anything that made the final edit of the movie, especially the part where he thoroughly dismisses the notion that Dylan said “play fucking loud” onstage during the famous ’66 show at Manchester Free Trade Hall. I’d post it myself if I knew how to get it from DVD to Youtube.

    1. Hi Dave & thanks for commenting,

      I will search youtube… but I guess no one has uploaded the extras… anyway I’ll have a look
