For all of it's brilliance, and for some truly superb and impassioned renditions ... still, Basement Tapes, as a whole (even the official ones), have never quite been my cup of meat. Of course, they document a most historic six month period in the lives of Dylan and the Band. They are essential to any serious collector.
Volume one of this exhaustive series finds Dylan on 12-string guitar for some songs, and piano on others. There were so many reel-to-reel recordings made in Big Pink's basement that some got stashed away and 'lost'. This disc contains some incredible versions that would have surly found their way to official release, had they been found. They didn't surface for nearly two decades.
