More Basement Tapes!

Bob Dylan & The Basement Tapes

Join us this Saturday at 3 pm on "Folk Music & Beyond" for Bob Dylan and The Basement Tapes revisited.  The original tapes were released by Dylan and The Band in 1967.  Since then, more songs have emerged from the Basement vaults.  A few months ago, Dylan released "The Basement Tapes Complete"--a six CD box set.  We'll hear some of the new unreleased tracks, as well as alternate takes.  We'll also hear "The New Basement Tapes" produced by T Bone Burnett.  Dylan recently found a stash of Basement lyrics that he didn't set to music.  Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Rhiannon Giddens, and others try their hand at setting Dylan's lyrics to music.
