I have recently acquired A Tree With Roots (Scorpio, 2001), a bitchingly comprehensive bootleg of Dylan and the Band’s famed Basement Tapes.  It is a remastered version of The Genuine Basement Tapes and contains 108 songs (incl. several alternate takes). The quality is generally great and very raw.  It’s a revelation, believe me.

These tunes were recorded sometime in the Spring/Summer of 1967 in a house in West Saugerties, NY.

As I digest it, I will keep SWR readers informed of the finer points.
