*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.

Well, it's been rumoured for months, ever since this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ2PHtS2bKg

appeared on Bobby's official site earlier this year, and now the details of his 36th studio album have been announced.

It's called Shadows in the Night, and will be released on 3 February, and is - believe it or not, unlikely as it seems, etc - Bobby does Sinatra!!!!!

It was a real privilege to make this album. I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a 5-piece band. That’s the key to all these performances. We knew these songs extremely well. It was all done live. Maybe one or two takes. No overdubbing. No vocal booths. No headphones. No separate tracking, and, for the most part, mixed as it was recorded.

I don’t see myself as covering these songs in any way. They’ve been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day.

Here's the tracklisting:

I’m a Fool to Want You
The Night We Called It a Day
Stay With Me
Autumn Leaves
Why Try to Change Me Now
Some Enchanted Evening
Full Moon and Empty Arms
Where Are You
What’ll I Do
That Lucky Old Sun

Who'd have thunk it?!!!!

$599.99 is taking the piss. Yeah, 5,000 copies only every going to be made and released but no amount of outtakes would make most fans go that way especially when within a few months, heck in a feck days, all of it will be up online in excellent sound quality for free. But you dont get 

  • A leopard skin printed spindle
  • A strip of film cells from an original print of the ‘Don’t Look Back’ film
  • Certificate of authenticity

Balls. How will life continue or the music sound as good without those sitting gathering dust in your house?

 

If this was Apple and The Beatles they would get slaughtered by 99% of everyone before they all went and downloaded it from many a place on the net. Kind of like what most did with the official '63 bootleg on itunes, and that only cost $40 or something!! But we didnt get a book! Or the right track details!! Or even 1 feckin' CD!!!! ahdn_paul_01

Admittedly true. Though if Apple were to release such a comprehensive set for Rubber SoulRevolver and Sgt. Pepper, who here wouldn't pay $1.58 a track (that's what it boils down to, without all the packaging and extras)?
