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.

It’s out.. and we’re listening. There a lot of music to binge on here.
While listening it’s also fun to read about this wonderful release, and that’s why I put together this post. It’s a collection of links to relevant articles about the “The Basement Tapes Complete”.
This post will be updated.
