This 7 DVD set features rare archival performance footage of Muddy Waters, Howlin'
Wolf, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Eric Clapton and many
more. It also features newly filmed performances by contemporary artists
singing classic blues songs. It may have been underrated when first
broadcast on PBS on consecutive nights in the fall of '03, but executive
producer Martin Scorsese's homage to the blues is a truly significant,
if imperfect, achievement. "Musical journey" is an apt description, as
Scorsese and the six other directors responsible for these seven
approximately 90-minute films follow the blues--the foundation of jazz,
soul, R&B, and rock & roll--from its African roots to its
Mississippi Delta origins, up the river to Memphis and Chicago, then to
New York, the United Kingdom, and beyond. Some of the films (like Wim
Wenders's The Soul of a Man and Charles Burnett's Warming by the Devil's
Fire) use extensive fictional film sequences, generally to good effect.
There's also plenty of documentary footage, interviews, and
contemporary studio performances recorded especially for these films.

The last are among the best aspects of the DVDs, as the bonus material features the
set's only complete tunes. Lou Reed's "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean"
and the ElektriK Mud Kats' (with Chuck D. of Public Enemy)
hip-hop-cum-traditional updating of Muddy Waters's "Mannish Boy" are
among the best of them; on the other hand, a rendition of "Cry Me a
River" by Lulu (?!) is a curious choice, even with Jeff Beck on hand.
The absence of lengthier vintage clips, meanwhile, is the principal
drawback. For that reason alone, Clint Eastwood's Piano Blues is the
best of the lot; a musician himself, Eastwood simply lets the players
play, which means we get extensive file footage of the likes of Art
Tatum, Oscar Peterson, and Nat "King" Cole, as well as new performances
by Ray Charles, Dr. John, and others. Overall, this is a set to savor, a
worthwhile investment guaranteed to grow on you over the course of
repeated viewings.

The included DVD's are:
1) Feel Like Going Home
2) The Soul of a Man
3) The Road to Memphis
4) Warming by the Devil's Fire
5) Godfathers and Sons
6) Red, White & Blues
7) Piano Blues

Over three hours of special feature material including: Live performances not seen in the film
On-camera interviews with the directors
Director commentaries
Director biographies and filmographies
Director biographies and filmographies
Special menu options to scan for all music performances

The premise is a good one: take seven visionary directors and turn them loose on a
subject like the blues. The result, while for the most part excellent
has a slight tendency to lag a little.
The Blues takes us on a musical journey through perhaps the only true
American art form. The journey begins in the Mississippi delta and winds
its way to Mali and all points in between. What we wind up with is a
history of the black influence in American and its expansion to the

The series opens with Martin Scorsese's Feel Like Goin' Home a
documentary that takes modern blues player Cory Harris from the
Misissipii delta to Mali in Africa to explore the similarities in the
music that moved from Africa with the slave transports to the Southern
United States.

German director Wim Wenders film The Soul of a Man chronicles the lives
of three blues players that affected the director. Through fictional
recreation and archival footage we get biographies of Blind Willie
Johnson, Skip James, and J.B. Lenoir.

Richard Pearce takes us on a musical journey with B.B King. and Rosco
Gordon back to Memphis and Beale Street og the past and present in his
Road to Memphis. Also explored is the story of moden player Bobby Rush
who continues to travel the "chitlin circuit" of his ancestors. The film
culminates in a performance of bles legends at the W.C. Handy Awards.

Charles Burnett tells the story of his youthful travels with his
southern blues loving uncle in Warming By the Devil's Fire. This film
relies heavily on archival footage of the great southern blues artists
and explains the differences between the music that was played on
Saturday nights in contrast with the gospel music of Sunday mornings. It
is interesting to note that in many respects that there was not a whole
lot of difference between the two genres in style.

Perhaps the most interesting film is Marc Levin's Godfathers and Sons
which explores the Chicago blues scene. The film profiles Marshall
Chess, son of Leonard Chess and founder of the legendary Chess Records.
Chess meets with rap icon Chuck D to take the blues to its next level
with a modern recording of Electric Mud. The reunion of the origal band
with blues next generation makes for an interesting film.

Red, White and Blues by director Mike Figgis explains the blues impact
on classic rock in the 60's and 70's. This is a straight interview piece
that covers the British invasion by the music and its branching out to
the world.

Piano Blues is Clint Eastwood's contribution to the series. This film
features interviews with piano masters Ray Charles, Dr. John and Dave
Brubeck. This piece also includes archival footage of Art Tatum,
Theolonious Monk, Fats Domino, and Professor Longhair.

The series is a good one if not necessary one that you'll want to watch over and over.
