The basement tapes: raw by Bob Dylan and The Band encapsulates everything that great music should be. It’s simple and effective, played in a relaxed environment and the songs are gems. These tunes are about as stripped back as you can get. Robbie Robertson’s restrained guitar is a thing of beauty.
There are just too many wonderful tracks here to mention highlights but I will anyway;
- One Too Many Mornings
- Tears of Rage
- a blistering, countrified Fulsom Prison Blues
- an alternate take of You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere
- a blues-soaked Blowin’ In The Wind…
Listen to it loud, on a Sunday afternoon, with a beer or two at the ready.
