Today we’ve got another track off the much-anticipated The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11, set for a November 4, 2014 release.
As you can hear if you listen to this one and the previously released “Odds & Ends,” the sound quality is much better than on the bootlegs we’ve lived with for so many years.
I’ve been listening as well to a streaming sampler of tracks off the 6-CD set and they really sound excellent.
When you consider that Dylan and The Band made more than 138 recordings of originals and covers during the summer of 1967, it’s mindblowing. I haven’t heard everything yet, but between the sampler and the bootleg recordings, I believe the official set will stand as one of the peaks of Bob Dylan’s recording career.
For now, enjoy “Lo and Behold!,” and while you’re at it, give “Odds & Ends” another listen.
