Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings will release Bob Dylan’s ‘The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11′ on November 3rd (pre-order here). 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 Raw: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11′, a two-disc version of highlights from the deluxe edition, will also be released on November 3. This will also be issued as a 3 LP set on 180-gram vinyl. Scroll down for the story behind the legendary ‘The Basement Tapes‘.

Classic Album Sundays is hosting a special ‘The Basement Tapes‘ session on Tuesday, 21 October at Bag O’Nails in Soho, a classic rock venue where Jimi Hendrix performed. Long Ryder, Coal Porter and Dylan authority Sid Griffin will join us as our special guest to relay the story behind Dylan’s legendary 1967 recordings with The Band at Big Pink. Griffin is a true Dylanologist and has published two books on his favourite subject: ‘Million Dollar Bash: Bob Dylan, The Band and The Basement Tapes’ and ‘Shelter from the Storm‘. Due to his extensive research we are sure he will be able to answer any questions you may have.

The CAS evening will also include a full vinyl album replay of the original ‘The Basement Tapes‘ (a Mobile Fidelity audiophile pressing) on our state-of-the-art audiophile hi-fi and a preview of some of the previously unreleased recordings featured on the new deluxe edition.

Tuesday, 21 October, 7 to 10 pm

Bag O’Nails, 9 Kingly Street, London W1B 5PH

Closest Tubes: Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus

Tickets: £10 online here and if available, £12 on the door

I imagine a few non-ER (or silent ER) touring people might be going, but how to find them??

I'm going along with my friend Jo. She works for Classic Rock magazine....

Not that we'll get to chat. I think it's a case of listening in silence. I have bought some knitting to do & hopefully Sid can sign my copy of his Shelter From the Storm book.
I will report back!
