Keep me logged in Lost Your Password? Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Bandtheir most technically elaborate album. The Beatles had just released Sgt. Pepper which I didn't like at all. I thought that was a very indulgent album, though the songs on it were real good.
I didn't think all that production was necessary. Mike Marqusee describes how the basement recordings represented a radical change of direction for Dylan, who turned his back on his reputation for importing avant-garde ideas into popular culture: "At the very moment when avant-gardism was sweeping through new cultural corridors, Dylan decided to dismount.
The dandified, aggressively modern surface was replaced by a self-consciously unassuming and traditional garb. The giddiness embodied, celebrated, dissected in the songs of the mid-sixties had left him exhausted. He sought safety in a retreat to the countryside that was also a retreat in time, or more precisely, a search for timelessness.
Dylan had married Sara Lownds in November The intense collaboration between Dylan and the Hawks that produced the basement recordings came to an end in October when Dylan relocated to Nashville to record a formal studio album, John Wesley Hardingwith a different crew of accompanying musicians. They had rubbed off on him a little.
Dylan referred to commercial pressures behind the basement recordings in a interview with Rolling Stone : "They weren't demos for myself, they were demos of the songs. You know how those things go. Peter, Paul and Mary, managed by Grossman, had the first hit with a basement composition when their cover of "Too Much of Nothing" reached number 35 on the Billboard chart in late Along with "Nothing Was Delivered",  it appeared on their country-rock album Sweetheart of the Rodeoreleased in August.
As tapes of Dylan's recordings circulated in the music industry, journalists became aware of their existence. Wenner listened to the fourteen-song demo and reported, "There is enough material—most all of it very good—to make an entirely new Bob Dylan album, a record with a distinct style of its own. Dylan brings that instinctual feel for rock and roll to his voice for the first time.
If this were ever to be released it would be a classic. Reporting such as this whetted the appetites of Dylan fans. The double album consisted of seven songs from the Woodstock basement sessions, plus some early recordings Dylan had made in Minneapolis in December and one track recorded from The Johnny Cash Show. One of those responsible for the bootleg, identified only as Patrick, talked to Rolling Stone : "Dylan is a heavy talent and he's got all those songs nobody's ever heard.
We thought we'd take it upon ourselves to make this music available. In JanuaryDylan unexpectedly gave permission for the release of a selection of the basement recordings, perhaps because he and Grossman had resolved their legal dispute Not Fade Away - Various - The Roots Of The Rolling Stones (CD) the Dwarf Music copyrights on his songs.
Engineer Rob Fraboni was brought to Shangri-La to clean up the recordings still in the possession of Hudson, the original engineer. Fraboni has described Robertson as the dominant voice in selecting the final tracks for The Basement Tapes and reported that Dylan was not in the studio very often. According to Fraboni, four new songs by the Band were also recorded in preparation for the album's official release, one of which, a cover of Chuck Berry 's "Going Back to Memphis", did not end up being included.
While Fraboni has recalled that the Band taped them in the liner notes for the reissued versions of the Band's own albums state that these songs were recorded between and In justifying their inclusion, Robertson explained that he, Hudson and Dylan did not have access to all the basement recordings: "We had access to some of the songs.
Some of these things came under the heading of 'homemade' which meant a Basement Tape to us. They were never intended to be a record, never meant to be presented. It was somewhat annoying that the songs were bootlegged. The album was finally released in the spirit of 'well, if this is going to be documented, let's at least make it good quality. For a comprehensive list of the Basement Tapes session recordings, see List of Basement Tapes songs.
See also List of Basement Tapes songs Note: The cassette version includes LP sides 1 and 2 on side 1, and LP sides 4 and 3 in that order on side 2. It poses Dylan and the Band alongside characters suggested by the songs: a woman in a Mrs. Henry T-shirt, an Eskimo, a circus strongman and a dwarf who has been identified as Angelo Rossitto.
John Rockwell of The New York Times hailed it as "one of the greatest albums in the history of American popular music. It would have been the best album oftoo. Criticism of the official release of The Basement Tapes has centered on two issues: the recordings by the Band on their own, and the selection of the Dylan songs.
In his book about the basement sessions, Greil Marcus describes the album's contents as "sixteen basement recordings plus eight Band demos". He writes, "The album as released hardly gave a real idea of what they had been doing in Woodstock. The authenticity of the album was questioned by a reviewer of the remastered version of the Band's Music from Big Pinkissued in Dave Hopkins noted that "Katie's Been Gone", which appears as a bonus track on the Big Pink reissue, is the same recording that appeared on The Basement Tapesbut now "in stereo and with improved sound quality beyond what the remastering process alone would provide".
Hopkins declared, "The cat's out of the bag: 'Katie' and the other Band-only tracks on The Basement Not Fade Away - Various - The Roots Of The Rolling Stones (CD) must have been intentionally muddied in the studio in so that they would fit better alongside the Dylan material recorded in the basement with a home reel-to-reel.
By including eight Band recordings Not Fade Away - Various - The Roots Of The Rolling Stones (CD) Dylan's sixteen, he says, "Robertson sought to imply that the alliance between Dylan and the Band was far more equal than it was: 'Hey, we were writing all these songs, doing our own thing, oh and Bob would sometimes come around and we'd swap a few tunes. Barney Hoskyns describes "Heylin's objections [as] the academic ones of a touchy Dylanologist: The Basement Tapes still contained some of the greatest music either Dylan or the Band ever recorded.
And while a Dylan fan might understandably grumble that he wanted to hear another Bob song, a fan equally versed and interested more generally in late 20th-century American music would only smile and thank the Good Lord for the gift of this song. But it is a song from The Basement Tapes era and it swings like a randy sailor on shore leave in a bisexual bar. So give Robbie a break. ByDylan showed scant interest in the discographical minutiae of the recordings.
Interviewed on the radio by Mary Travershe recalled, "We were all up there sorta drying out So, in the meantime, we made this record. Actually, it wasn't a record, it was just songs which we'd come to this basement and recorded. Out in the woods Although The Basement Tapes reached the public in an unorthodox manner, officially released eight years after the songs were recorded, critics have assigned them an important place in Dylan's development.
Michael Gray writes, "The core Dylan songs from these sessions actually do form a clear link between They evince the same highly serious, precarious quest for a personal and universal salvation which marked out the John Wesley Harding collection—yet they are soaked in the same blocked confusion and turmoil as Blonde on Blonde.
Augustine '". Singer-songwriter David Gray commented that the great achievement of The Basement Tapes is that Dylan found a way out of the anguish and verbal complexity that had characterized his mid-sixties albums such as Blonde on Blonde : "It's the sound of Dylan letting his guard down.
The sound of the Band is so antiquated like something out of the Gold Rush and Dylan fits in because he's this storyteller with an ancient heart. At the time everything he did was so scrutinized, yet somehow he liberated himself from all that and enjoyed making music again. You hear an unselfconscious quality on this record which you don't ever hear again. In place of that album's strangled urgency, Dylan adopts a laconic humor, a deadpan tone that speaks of resignation and self-preservation in the face of absurdity and betrayal.
Robert Shelton has argued that The Basement Tapes revolves around two sets of themes. In his sleeve notes for the release of The Basement TapesGreil Marcus wrote, "What was taking place as Dylan and the Band fiddled with the tunes, was less a style than a spirit—a spirit that had to do with a delight in friendship and invention. Inafter listening to more than basement recordings issued on various bootlegs, Marcus extended these insights into a book-length study, Invisible Republic reissued in under the title The Old, Weird America.
In it, he quotes Robertson's memory of the recording: "[Dylan] would pull these songs out of nowhere. We didn't know if he Not Fade Away - Various - The Roots Of The Rolling Stones (CD) them or if he remembered them. When he sang them, you couldn't tell. These ghosts were not abstractions. As native sons and daughters they were a community. And they were once gathered in a single place: on the Anthology of American Folk Music ". Marcus suggests that Dylan's Basement Tapes shared with Smith's Anthology a sense of alchemy, "and in the alchemy is an undiscovered country".
While removed from the public's gaze, Dylan and the Band made music very different from the recordings of other major artists. Andy Gill writes, "Musically, the songs were completely at odds with what was going on in the rest of the pop world, which during the long, hot summer of was celebrating the birth of the hippie movement with a gaudy explosion of ' psychedelic ' music—mostly facile paeans to universal love draped in interminable guitar solos.
While George Harrison was testifying that life went on within and without youDylan was taking his potatoes down to be mashed. While Mick Jagger was 2, light years from homeDylan was strapping himself to a tree with roots.
This aspect of the basement recordings became obvious when Dylan chose to record his next album, John Wesley Hardingin Nashville in late The songs on that record, according to Howard Sounes, revealed the influence of Dylan's daily reading of both the Bible and the Hank Williams songbook.
As producer Bob Johnston recalled, "Every artist in the world was in the studio trying to make the biggest-sounding record they possibly could. So what does [Dylan] do?
He comes to Nashville and tells me he wants to record with a bass, drum and guitar. When the Band began work on their debut album, Music from Big Pinkin a New York studio in January they employed a recording technique similar to the one they had become familiar with during The Basement Tapes sessions.
As Robertson described it, "We used the same kind of mike on everything. A bit of an anti-studio approach. And we realized what was comfortable to us was turning wherever we were into a studio. Like the Big Pink technique. It is not rehearsed or slick. Neither are The Basement Tapes. Remember that The Basement Tapes holds a certain cultural weight which is timeless—and the best Americana does that as well. Stuart Bailie wrote, "If rock'n'roll is the sound of a party in session, The Basement Tapes were the morning after: bleary, and a bit rueful but dashed with emotional potency.
I think [Dylan] was trying to write songs that sounded like he'd just found them under a stone. As if they sound like real folk songs—because if you go back into the folk tradition, you will find songs as dark and as deep as these. InRolling Stone magazine ranked The Basement Tapes number on its list of the greatest albums of all time number in a revised list,  and number in the magazine's list. On March 31,Legacy Records issued a remastered version of the original Basement Tapes double album, which critics praised for its improved sound quality.
In the early s, a virtually complete collection of all of Dylan's recordings in Woodstock was released on a bootleg five-CD set, The Genuine Basement Tapes. The collection, which contains over songs and alternate takeswas later remastered and issued as the four-CD bootleg A Tree With Roots. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
