Bob Dylan & The Band - The Basement Tapes mp3 album

The Basement Tapes is an album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan and The Band. It was released on June 26, 1975, by Columbia Records and is Dylan's 16th studio album. The songs featuring Dylan's vocals were recorded in 1967, eight years before the album's release, at Big Pink and other houses in and around Woodstock, New York, where Dylan and The Band lived. Although most of the Dylan songs had appeared on bootleg records, The Basement Tapes marked the songs' first official release.

By the time it came out in June 1975, Bob Dylan and the Band's The Basement Tapes was the most famous album never released. It was also one of the most frequently bootlegged. It was written about, dissected, discussed and heralded as a masterpiece before Dylan's record company finally decided to put out some of the songs that were recorded by the singer and his onetime backing band eight years earlier. Following a July 1966 motorcycle accident, Dylan retreated to his home in Woodstock, .

The Basement Tapes Bob Dylan & The Band Released 07/01/1975. Some years back, The Band cut a song called "The Rumor. It's a tune that could well describe the music now collected here. In 1965 and 1966 Bob Dylan and The Hawks played their way across the country and then around the world; those rough tours pushed Bob Dylan's music, and The Band's, to a certain limit, and they had made stand-up, -no quarter-asked music if there ever was such a thing. In the summer of 1967 Dylan and The Band were after something else

The Basement Tapes can be heard as a manifesto for the '90s' underlying Americana agenda or as the greatest album never intended for commercial release. Homegrown 1967 recordings taped in the Band's fabled Big Pink hermitage in Saugerties, New York, many of the 24 songs resonated across American and English rock and folk long before their belated 1975 release through studio interpretations by the Byrds, Fairport Convention, Manfred Mann, Peter, Paul & Mary, and numerous other acolytes, as well as through myriad unauthorized bootlegs
