BOB DYLAN AND THE BAND
The Complete Basement Tapes: From The Reels [no label, CD 3 and 4 of 11]

Recorded at “Big Pink”, West Saugerties, New York, 1967. This 11-CD set was released in 2001.

Philip Cohen notes:

This is the most complete Basement Tapes collection in circulation. This is not for audiophiles. It is for completists who want everything; warts and all.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.

Notes from rec.music.dylan, August 2001:

In the time since this ‘fan project’ was completed, there have been a couple of other ‘Basement’ releases, one a 5 CDR set, nice quality, but lacking many tracks (…almost nothing from reel 1) emerged, and more recently the 4CD ‘Tree with Roots’ emerged. These have been carefully compared as well, and where appropriate, tracks were upgraded to the original 10CD set. Recently, someone else seems to have gotten hold of this set and and thinks that there were some other missing tracks (I’m not particularly convinced that reel 11 contains any new Basement tracks at all…) and added these tracks to reel #11.

  7. Tracks 417, 419, 420 and 423 Should NOT have been omitted because the versions on the official release feature overdubs that Robbie Robertson added right before they were released (at least according to the liner notes by Greil (yes, he is my brother) Marcus)

  11. I’ve bought the official version three times (once on vinyl and was amazed at the songs and performances and later on the original and remastered CD version). I love this stuff, and this can only add to my enjoyment.

    thanks.

  13. So, let me get it straight:

    You’d rather have music removed than have it actually listened to???

    Here’s the thing: there’s so much creative commons 2.0 and 3.0 music available (not to mention copyrighted music that the authors don’t mind people downloading) that I don’t find the need to buy music (not this kind or genre, anyway).

    If - by doing this - I’m helping putting an end to music industry as we’ve known it, so be it… There’ll still always be freely-downloadable music!!!

    If you remove it, I’ll just pass it by and move on to the next worthwhile thing I can freely download (and there’s so many of those) because the plain truth is I can well live without THE BASEMENT TAPES!!!!
