Muddy Waters, Bukka White and Howlin' Wolf on new DVD
A revealing new programme will examine the artists and music which shaped one of the world’s greatest rock’n’roll bands, Led Zeppelin.
Down The Tracks: The Music That Influenced Led Zeppelin contains rare and previously unseen footage of Howlin’ Wolf, Charley Patton, Son House, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Bukka White.
The DVD will also look at some the lesser known artist and movements, such as skiffle, folk and even an exploration of their interest in the occult, which are clearly identifiable on Led Zeppelin’s albums.
Renowned producers Joe Boyd and Larry Cohn, and musicians like John Renbourn, Chas McDevitt and Davey Graham give revealing interviews alongside blues historians and music authors.
The DVD is due for release on 15 September 2008.
