Listen to a Song From Bob Dylan’s Upcoming ‘Basement Tapes Complete’
As Bob Dylan gets set to release the much-anticipated new volume in his ongoing 'Bootleg Series,' a six-CD box set devoted to every single song from the legendary 'Basement Tapes,' one of the tracks from the sessions is now available for your ears.
An alternate take of 'Lo and Behold,' which was originally released on the double 1975 album culled from the sessions, offers a cleaner, looser and more energetic take of the song. Give it a listen below.
Following a motorcycle accident in 1967, not to mention tons of scrutiny over the past couple years focusing on his music and heated tour of the U.K. in 1966, Dylan retreated to a house outside of Woodstock, N.Y., in which his backing group, who'd later rename themselves the Band, was staying.
Together they would record hundreds of hours of music. For years, bootleggers have attempted to compile the definitive version of 'The Basement Tapes.' Dylan's record company put out an abbreviated version of them in the mid-'70s.
The upcoming box, ‘The Basement Tapes Complete,’ includes 138 songs, many of which have even escaped bootleggers. The set, which is also the 11th volume of Dylan's celebrated official 'Bootleg Series,' is due on Nov. 4.
