  • The Basement Tapes

    The album “The Basement Tapes” are in fact just that; records that were made at various houses in and around Woodstock, NY in 1967 where Bob Dylan and his supporting band The Hawks, later known as The Band, lived.  Up until this time, many of his basement records had already appeared in a series of bootleg records, but “The Basement Tapes” album was the first official release.  What makes these recordings so intimate as compared to many of his other albums are that many of the songs were taken from his own experience after his near fatal motorcycle accident in July of 1966.  Different in style than his previous records, songs such as “Lo and Behold” and “Tears of Rage” are just two songs that make up an album that was widely seen as some of his best work ever.  This double album remains today one of the top selling Bob Dylan album.
