Critic Reviews for Tom Dowd and the Language of Music
A fitting epitaph for a giant few people outside the industry knew but whose work everybody heard.
As a probing look at a really nice-guy genius in the studio world, it succeeds admirably.
Deserves credit, not only for choosing a wonderful and deserving subject for a film, but for doing him proud.
A loving portrait of 50 years of pop music and a man who by all accounts was a musical genius.
Audience Reviews for Tom Dowd and the Language of Music
Wonderful documentary about a legendary producer and record engineer who's worked with everyone from Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin to Cream and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and obviously one heck of a guy too. Highly recommended for anyone who truly loves music.
If you love music and are more than a casual listening, you will dig this very well done tribute to a legend!
Mostly a tribute to an overlooked, incredibly gifted sound engineer - who also worked on the Manhattan Project as a teenager. There's a segment where Dowd shows the audio breakdown of "Layla" (the ending with the piano and two guitars). So cool!
