This documentary covers the lives of three well-known blues musicians, Blues Traveler (d. 1996), Roy Harper (d. 1988), and Stevie Ray Vaughan (d. 1998). The three are a trio of brothers and were musicians before they decided to become singers, blues singers in particular. The group's music is simple, but resonates with the audience, and is sung with a sincere sound. The brothers are truly icons of the blues era, and their music is a class apart from the standard music styles in the early 20th century. The brothers' personality is reflected in their music, and their stories are very moving. The music is their life story, and they live it as best they can, despite being in a way they can't change. The three brothers are brothers, but it is hard to see the relationship they have. Roy Harper is the oldest brother, and the one who is most devoted to his music. He is a true blues singer, and one of the reasons the brothers become blues singers in the first place. Stevie Ray Vaughan is the youngest brother, and he is the one who has more energy. He is the one who is an inspiration to the brothers. He is their inspiration and a true blues singer. As with most stories, there are many sides to the story, and the documentary covers the brothers' lives, but not as much as the brothers themselves. This documentary has a good production quality, and is well-constructed, but the story is told with too much emphasis on the brothers. It is easy to see the relationship between Roy Harper and Stevie Ray Vaughan, but the brothers are too much of a focal point in the story. The brothers are probably the best actors in the documentary, and they are very believable, even in the story. The brothers are shown to be very committed and dedicated to their music, and their stories are very moving. However, the brothers' story is told in too much detail, and it becomes hard to get into the brothers' personalities. While the brothers' lives are wonderful, the story is too much of a focus, and the brothers' story is too well-developed for the documentary to be interesting. The documentary could have been better if it had a better focus. Still, it is a good documentary that gives the brothers their due. Rating: 7/10
