    The Bootleg Series Holy Grail has Arrived

    For years Dylan fans have clamored for a Bootleg Series box set of some sort, but, especially in the earlier years of the BS, they feared it would be a a more curated release and that the black market bootlegs that released just about everything would still be the way to go. However they shocked us by giving both a curated 2-disc edition, as well as this massive 6-disc set. Does it live up to expectations? That and then some. Garth Hudson went in with some fine audio people and baked the tapes, and resorted them to being as well preserved and presented digitally as ever was thought possible. What you end up is is 6 discs that include everything we knew would be there - and more than a few gems we didn't know existed. Any Dylan or Band fan will love this release, as the box itself and books that come with it are also a lot of fun, filled with great pictures and liner notes. Is it pricey? Sure, but it's hard to complain about any price put on the box set of the holy grail of rock n' roll bootlegs!

    This is an incredible set of 6 cds containing a wealth of unreleased material from the basement tapes sessions. I think this is one of the best of the bootleg series and I own all 12 of them. The deluxe version is quite a bit more expensive but we'll worth it for the serious fan. The book is cool but the real treasure is the music.

    Finally the complete set available. A nice package with 2 books and 6 CDs. Expensive but worth it to finally hear it all, lots of music as most discs around 70 minutes. I was surprised by the overall sound quality considering the source material, with the exception of disc 6 which is considered a bonus in that sound is poor to OK.

    The complete Basement Tapes is an absolute must for all Dylan fans. This period with the Band was arguably the most prolific of his/their musical career. Great package put together by Garth Hudson!

    The Complete Basement Tapes provides listeners with a true feeling of what it would have felt like to be a fly on the wall at Big Pink in 1967. It is awesomely inspirational and influential.
