    Dylan fans "moist" as 'Complete Basement Tapes' bootlegs set for official release

    Guardian:

    Bob Dylan and the Band: The Basement Tapes Complete review – rickety, strange and utterly timeless

    Sometimes he sounds like a man who thought the guy who shouted 'Judas!' might have had a point after all....

    ---
    The rough recordings Dylan made in Woodstock in the spring and summer of 1967 had a profound effect, widely held to represent the third time in as many years that he altered the course of music.

    The Complete Basement Tapes To Be Released November 4 (bobdylan.com)

    After the Fall: Bob Dylan's legendary basement tapes (New Yorker)

    ---
    In 1978, Dylan told Jonathan Cott, of Rolling Stone, “I didn’t create Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan has always been here . . . always was. When I was a child there was Bob Dylan. And before I was born, there was Bob Dylan.”

    First Listen: Bob Dylan, 'The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11' (NPR)

    The dog's name was Hamlet.

    He lived at the house known as Big Pink, in the woods near Woodstock, and during the summer of 1967, responsibility for his care was shared by Bob Dylan and members of The Band. Hamlet was on the scene during the fruitful recording of The Basement Tapes, part of the storied atmosphere that led to one of the most vivid chapters in American music.

    I like it. It sounds rough, but a lot of it is still really good. What a gem.
    All statements are my opinion only.

    Anyone of a certain age recall the Dylan Renaissance of '75, Blood on the Tracks in Jan., official release of Basement Tapes in June, then the Rolling Thunder tour nipping hard on the heels of those two Events. (Saw the Bobber in Wichita with...wow, who-all...Joanie, Allen Ginsberg prowling backstage, um, Mick Ronson, T-Bone Burnett, maybe Ramblin' Jack Elliot, that whole lot, Scarlet Rivera on fiddle and more, more -- Bob Neuwirth etc.). "Good times" sounds a bit facile, though good times they were.

    Do we care too much about food and Bob Dylan, the New Yorker asks?
