Tra le molte pietre miliari culturali di Bob Dylan, i leggendari Basement Tapes hanno a lungo affascinato e sedotto generazioni di musicisti, appassionati e critici musicali. Dopo aver trasformato la musica e la cultura all’inizio degli anni 1960, Dylan raggiunse vette ineguagliabili tra il 1965 e il 1966 con la pubblicazione di tre album storici, l’innovativo singolo che ha fatto la storia Like A Rolling Stone, una performance controversa e leggendaria al Newport Folk Festival del 1965 e i tour che toccarono gli Stati Uniti, l’Europa e il Regno Unito. L’ascesa di Dylan e la prodigiosa produzione dell’inizio di quel decennio subirono un brusco arresto nel luglio del 1966, quando giunse la notizia di un suo grave incidente di moto nello stato di New York.

Durante la convalescenza, lontano dagli occhi del pubblico per la prima volta dopo anni, Dylan si sistemò, insieme a Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson e, più tardi,Levon Helm, nel seminterrato di una piccola casa, soprannominato “Big Pink” dal gruppo, a West Saugerties, New York. Questa formazione, successivamente passata alla storia come Bob Dylan e The Band, registrò più di un centinaio di canzoni nel corso dei mesi, tra cui cover, stornelli ironici e divertenti e, soprattutto, decine di nuove canzoni di Bob Dylan, tra cui i classici I Shall Be Released, The Mighty Quinn, This Wheel’s On Fire e You Ain’t Going Nowhere.

Quando le voci di alcune di queste registrazioni cominciarono a circolare, si venne a creare una forte curiosità che alimentava un settore un segmento completamente nuovo del mondo della musica: il bootleg. Nel 1969, un album misteriosamente intitolato Great White Wonder iniziò a essere distribuito nei negozi di dischi in tutto il paese, e la musica di Dylan a partire dall’estate del 1967 iniziò a infiltrarsi nel tessuto della cultura popolare, che penetra le anime degli amanti della musica di tutto il mondo. Col passare degli anni, sempre più appassionati cercarono questo raro contrabbando, curiosi di sentire questa nuova musica del leggendario Bob Dylan.

Le registrazioni effettive, tuttavia, rimasero commercialmente non disponibili fino al 1975, quando la Columbia Records ne pubblicò 16 nell’album The Basement Tapes (che includeva anche otto nuove canzoni di The Band, senza Dylan).

Un successo di critica e popolare, “The Basement Tapes” finì nella Top 10 negli Stati Uniti e nel Regno Unito, con John Rockwell del The New York Times, che lo definiva “uno dei più grandi album della storia della musica popolare americana“, Paul Nelson di Rolling Stone che lodava le tracce come “le canzoni più dure, più dolci, più tristi, più divertenti più sagge che conosco” e il Washington Post che sottolineava “… Dylan si è affermato come il più grande artista che la moderna musica pop americana abbia mai prodotto.” Robert Christgau diede all’album un rating A + sul Village Voice, dove arrivò in cima alla classifica annuale Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.

Nel corso degli anni, le canzoni di “The Basement Tapes” hanno ossessionato e lasciato perplessi gli appassionati, le registrazioni stesse rappresentano un Santo Graal per i Dylaniani. Cosa c’era sul resto di quei nastri?

“The Basement Tapes Complete” riunisce, per la prima volta in assoluto, ogni registrazione salvabile dai nastri, comprese le prime gemme scoperte di recente registrate nella “Sala Rossa” della casa di Dylan nello stato di New York. Garth Hudson ha lavorato a stretto contatto con l’archivista musicale canadese e produttore Jan Haust per ripristinare il suono incontaminato dei nastri in deterioramento, e molta di questa musica è stata trasferita e conservata in digitale per la prima volta.

La decisione è stata presa per presentare “The Basement Tapes Complete” nella versione più intatta possibile. Inoltre, a differenza della pubblicazione ufficiale del 1975, queste performance sono presentate nella versione più fedele possibile al modo in cui sono state originariamente registrate e suonate di nuovo nell’estate del 1967. I brani sono in ordine per lo più cronologico basato sul sistema di numerazione di Garth Hudson.
