'Had these Boston bad boys stuck it out beyond their 1966 debut, we might today be calling them--and not the Stones--the World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band. As it is, The Remains most certainly are America's greatest lost band,' - Mark Kemp, June 2007 Paste Magazine.

The Remains appeared on Ed Sullivan, opened for the Beatles, and then broke up just on the brink of fame. America's Lost Band is a documentary of The Remains' return to Los Angeles for the first time in 40 years - since opening for the Beatles - a film that follows a group of 60-year-old musicians back together pursuing their passion. It's the story of what happens when a band reaches the cusp of rock greatness, but doesn't make it over the final hurdle ? and what happens when they put the past aside to renew the pursuit for greatness.

Preceded by: Electric Revolution, (Mark Moorman, 11 minutes, USA) which documents Gage Brewer's world premiere performance of the electric guitar in Wichita, Kansas in 1932.
