Bob Dylan & The Band: The Genuine Basement Tapes Volume 1-5 (audio)

On November 4, 2014, Columbia/Legacy will issue The Bootleg Series Vol. 11: The Basement Tapes Complete, an official 6-CD box set of all Dylan’s available basement recordings, including 30 never-bootlegged tracks.

We’re warming up to this highly anticipated release here @ alldylan.com with a look at bootleg releases with material from Dylan & The Band’s recordings @ The Big Pink, West Saugerties, New York – June – October 1967

In the early 1990s, a virtually complete collection of all of Dylan’s 1967 recordings in Woodstock was released on a bootleg five-CD set, The Genuine Basement Tapes. The collection, which contains over 100 songs and alternate takes, was later remastered and issued as the four-CD bootleg A Tree With Roots. Greil Marcus showed the set to Garth Hudson, who declared, “They’ve got it all.”

Nonetheless, a handful of basement songs not available on A Tree With Roots or other bootlegs have been documented, including the Band’s “Even If It’s a Pig Part I” (which has circulated in fragmentary form) and “Even If It’s a Pig Part II”, and Dylan’s “Wild Wolf” and “Can I Get a Racehorse” (copyrighted as “You Own a Racehorse”).

She said she would always stay
But I was cruel

Great documentary.

This is the story of Bob Dylan and The Band, the legendary amateur recordings that they made together in Woodstock, their re-invention of American music and their continued relationship during the late 1960s and 1970s.
