BOB DYLAN AND THE BAND
The Complete Basement Tapes: From The Reels [no label, CD 5 and 6 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.

  6. Thank you for the soundtrack, at least the opening number thereto, for my future in Hell. There can be no greater torture than Track 20. Yet, somehow .. sublime.

  7. I’m Not There is one of those “legendary” tracks that when I finally heard it, I was not at all disappointed. If it can live up to the drama of a Greil Marcus description, then you know it’s great.

    I spent a good part of a night drinking little glasses of wine and listening to that song over and over. I ended up crying, and woke up the next morning with a mouth like a carpet. Not recommended, but still worth having done.

  11. Warning!!! My computer has detected a new virus. It’s called the Dunguspapilloma virus. This virus infects music blog sites by interrupting intelligent conversation with persistent off topic toilet humor. It is unknown if this virus really appreciates music at all as it has never actually commented on it. It appears to be a jealous infection with no life of it’s own. This is NOT a Trojan as it has never had the opportunity to use one. When not infecting computers the Dunguspapilloma virus attaches itself to it’s mothers apron strings. It is not allowed to go outside or to play with others. To protect yourself and your computer from this harmful spirochete you must practice good personal hygiene and above all else- don’t forget to wipe yer ass folks!
