This documentary takes a look at the life and career of Duane Allman, a Southern musician whose blues-influenced take on rock and roll helped spark a revolution in popular music through his session work with Muscle Shoals, collaborations with Eric Clapton, and contributions to the group he would form with his brother Greg, the Allman Brothers Band. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This rather mushy combination of animation and live-action remains one of Disney's most controversial efforts."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Warrants watching for its misguided naive look at slavery."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A visão deturpada de uma vida feliz de escravidão compromete o filme, mas sua história lúdica e simpática, ressaltada pelo carisma de Baskett, acaba nos conquistando."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Apparently the Disney wonder-workers are just a lot of conventional hacks when it comes to telling a story with actors instead of cartoons."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"The central drama is only intermittently successful, and not only because any rational modern viewer will be seriously put off by the jolly racial ignorance of it all... but its heart is in the right place."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"If only Disney had been as aware of the environment they were depicting as they were inventive in their combination of live action film, cartoon animation and unforgettable songs."
‑ , Film4
"Better save this for nostalgia only -- kids won't be missing anything if they never encounter this relic."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Song of the South's cartoon sequences are as fine as anything produced by the Disney animators."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The film is not racist, but it stupidly regurgitates the old myth of happy, singing slaves who just love working on massah's plantation."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
