It's a Bob Dylan bonanza.
On Nov. 4, the six disc motherlode of The Basement Tapes, drawn from the 1967 Saugerties, N.Y. sessions between the Bard and the band that would become The Band, will be released in their most complete ever form. The 138 song set will include 30 never before released tracks including,a cover of Hank Williams "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It," alternate takes of classic Dylan songs like "One Too Many Mornings" and one I'm most eager to hear called "See You Later, Allen Ginsberg."
Two and half weeks later, Dylan will be pulling into Philadelphia for a three night stand at the Academy of Music from Nov. 21 to 23, according to BobDylan.com. It's part of a 31 date tour that includes multiple nights in major cities including Seattle, Chicago and New York, where Dylan will play the Beacon Theatre on Nov. 28-29 and Dec. 1-2.
Also, on November 11, Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, will be released, with T-Bone Burnett producing an album featuring Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, in which lost Basement Tapes era Dylan lyrics will be set to new music.
Got all that? Good. Dylan and The Band covering Woody Guthrie's "Ain't Got No Home" at Carnegie Hall in 1968 is below. Tickets for the Academy go on sale at 10 am on Sept. 8.
