Bob Dylan Confirms The Basement Tapes Complete, Box Set to Include Previously Unknown Songs

Bob Dylan is gearing up to release The Basement Tapes Complete on November 4 through Legacy Records. The six-CD box set, which will be the 11th installment in The Bootleg Series, will feature 138 tracks from Bob and The Band’s famed 1967 “Basement Tapes” sessions. Rolling Stone reports that 30 of the release’s 138 tracks are so rare that most “fanatical Dylan fans never knew” they existed.

The previously unknown songs includes “Wild Wolf,” an early rendition of “I Shall Be Released,” a cover of Hank Williams’ “My Bucket’s Got A Hole In It” and more. Most of the tracks were recorded in a basement/garage at Big Pink in West Saugerties, NY in the spring, summer and fall of 1967, while others were recoded at Dylan’s home in Hi Lo Ha and Levon Helm’s home in Woodstock. The Basement Tapes Complete was compiled using the original reel-to-reel tapes that hold the all of the recordings from the 1967 sessions.

With this big release now behind them, Dylan’s camp have told Rolling Stone that that they are thinking about revisiting the 1975 era and Blood on the Tracks. The group has also made on of the previously unknown tracks—an alternate version of “Odds and Ends”—available to stream via Rolling Stone.
