One of the greatest rock films of all time, Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs & Englishmen gets digitally overhauled and released on DVD for the very first time! This film captures one of the most exciting concert tours ever and catapulted Cocker into Rock Legend. With friends Leon Russell and Rita Coolidge among others, this DVD includes two dozen incredible songs plus backstage footage, fan interviews and electric performances all remastered in 5.1 surround and stereo, and as an added bonus, a Personal Playlist and a 24-page Pressbook from the original theatrical marketing of the film in 1971. Recorded at Fillmore East during the first week on the road, with a couple of added tracks from a later show at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, it captures all the excitement and exhilaration of the tour. Thirty-five years on it remains an extraordinary record.
