I was flicking through the updated Million Dollar Bash in a book shop today and in the track-by-track section at the back two takes of Wild Wolf are discussed. Why only one on the Complete box set? Was the other take one of the tracks deemed unsalvageable?

Didn't read that part but there must be a few people on here who have the book and can elucidate. I did look up what he had to say on Mary Lou, I Love You Too though, was pleased to see he seemed to like it almost as much as I do, for some reason I imagined I'd be in a minority on that one but I think I've listened to it more than any other track so far.

I've got the previous edition of MDB, not the new one, and it has a short piece on 'I'm Alright', though only one take - I can post if you're interested. :o

I'm Alright (Take 1) 0.58.

Dylan: Acoustic Guitar & Vocal.
Danko: Bass.
Hudson: Organ.
Manuel: Pedal Steel Guitar.
Robertson: Electric Guitar.

"Another Drinking song, this one sadly unfinished. Perfect for 'The Faces' back when Rod Stewart and Ronnie Laine were still mates and still speaking to one another. The Hawks with Ronnie Hawkins singing could have cut this song up and and spun it our five ways from Sunday. Ends while the performance is still on. Damn"

(Take 2) 2.38:

Dylan: Acoustic Guitar & Vocal.
Danko: Harmony Vocal.
Hudson: Organ.
Manuel: Piano.
Robertson: Electric Guitar.

"This recently uncovered take could use Rick's hefty but unobtrusive basslines. The guitar & organ combine to drown our Richard's piano, but this is still what sounds like an unreleased Ronnie Laine / Rod Stewart classic that sadly cuts to an abrupt stop during a chorus. Shame"

So, again, as with Wild Wolf, why has only one take been issued on the supposedly complete set? From the descriptions they don't sound unsalvageable or unlistenable. And why is the released take of I'm Alright nearly a full minute less than the running time given by Griffin?

Stevie Wonder´s singing "Blowin´in the wind" at the 30th anniversary is very similar to
the version, which appears on BS11. Love that version, it´s great.
Think that Stevie had knowledge of that one. In 1993 . watching live the concert,
I thought - amazing interpretation! I still think that, nevertheless knowing the origin.

More likely that Bob based the basement version off of Stevie Wonder's Motown record that came out in 1966, which is the same version he plays at the 30th Anniversary concert.

Is there a Basement influences thread?.... just randomly in conversation about opening doors. I started singing...
"Open the door, Richard" etc. Mark immediately remember an old Rockabilly tune of that name by Louis Jordan.
It's a funny song.

Yes... it's in one of those books. Might have been the Gray encyclodepia.
I'm kind of debating getting the Basement Tapes Influences album, not really sure yet though.
Anyone here got it?

Probably the best and most complete compilation of "influences" was done by Xirkus and is downloadable on usenet. I posted about this a few weeks ago.

Do you happen to have a tracklist available? Accessing that site seems rather complicated.

Yes, it is too complicated for some people.

I'm sure i'm in the minority here...but I still haven't heard this release yet.
I'm getting the "COMPLETE" & "Vinyl" versions for Christmas....(i hope)

just moved into a new space and set up my listening booth tonight.

I spun the 1975 release and enjoyed the experience thoroughly.
I really like THE BAND tracks....

It seems like the band became THE BAND during the original sessions and these tracks tell some sort of Tale.
I'm sure having the all Bob version (both raw & complete) will be an intense joy...

But, I'm still very happy with the 1975 release...and I think I will continue to spin it again & again...

Can't wait 'till Christmas!
