Highway 61. The actual highway.

I've traveled it many a time. Where it goes through Memphis is right by where I taught school. It was one of the two ways I could use to get to the school.

In Mississippi, the section from Memphis to Tunica has become super busy with all the casino traffic. A close friend's brother was killed on 61 driving to his job at one of the casinos.

There was quite a Beatles influence around the time of Blonde on Blonde. This is one of the tracks that didn't make it...

I only own The Freewheelin' and Highway 61 Revisited but both albums are lovely and I play them often.

*bump!* Bringing this back from the dead for the most remarkable news!

Volume 11 in The Bootleg Series has been announced for release on 4th November, and it is the one every Bobhead has been praying for since the series began - The Basement Tapes Complete. Complete! Not cherry-picking what they think is the best stuff, but "every salvageable recording". 6CDs, 138 tracks, with 30 never bootlegged - most not even rumoured! The sodding Holy Grail!

Compiled from meticulously restored original tapes--many found only recently--this historic six-disc set is the definitive chronicle of the artist's legendary 1967 recording sessions with members of his touring ensemble who would later achieve their own fame as The Band. 

The Basement Tapes Complete brings together, for the first time ever, every salvageable recording from the tapes including recently discovered early gems recorded in the "Red Room" of Dylan's home in upstate New York. 

Garth Hudson worked closely with Canadian music archivist and producer Jan Haust to restore the deteriorating tapes to pristine sound, with much of this music preserved digitally for the first time. The decision was made to present The Basement Tapes Complete as intact as possible. 

Also, unlike the official 1975 release, these performances are presented as close as possible to the way they were originally recorded and sounded back in the summer of 1967. The tracks onThe Basement Tapes Complete run in mostly chronological order based on Garth Hudson's numbering system.

Damn expensive! £110 on Amazon for the UK! But it will and must be bought!

Alongside there will be a 38-track 2CD "pick-of" The Basement Tapes Raw.

And the rumour is that next-up will be Blood on the Tracks.

I was listening to Concert for Bangladesh last night and ended up listening to It Takes a Train... about 8 times. The entire song is great, but  Iespecially love the (half) verse:

"Well I want to be your lover, I don't want to be your boss

Don't say I never warned you If your train gets lost"

Half of what I say is meaningless...

"She said...And it's making me feel like my trousers are torn"

I was thrilled to hear about that long-awaited Basement Tapes box...but DAMN it's going to be expensive! :(

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
