 In decades of listening to these recordings in varying quality what I’ve always heard is a singer sharing some of his favorite songs in hopes of finding the inspiration to create new ones. The joys and treasures of both can be found on these six discs.

  1. Regarding Basement Tapes: Just ran into a link ( = ) from BBC documenting a phone interview (aired very recently like maybe yesterday) with Garth Hudson. It’s a great story, and there are clips of the interview. Apparently a one point Garth stopped talking and started playing. I only listened to one clip: a 3:30 -long clip llabelled “…Garth Hudson discusses Dylan and plays One Too Many Mornings and The Patriot Game” . Ofter some odd banter, Mr. Hudson’s wife chimes in saying “He wants to play something.” And Mr. Hudson starts playing a piano and delivers some very beautiful music… even over a transcontinental telephone connection, it’s quite beautiful.
