2.0 out of 5 stars Pause and consider before splurging!, 9 Nov. 2014
Well it sounds amazing - a superb remaster job which really makes you feel as if you're there, which for many Dylan freaks will be reason enough to get this. For anyone else, even if you've ever fallen in love with the original 'official' Basement Tapes, don't expect the unreleased material on here to be in anywhere near the same league as that album ('I'm Not There' notwithstanding). I'd even suggest to the Dylanologists (ooh, run, duck for cover...) that Robbie Robertson's track choices, remixing and overdubbing on the first official LP were perfectly judged and improved on the source material. Ditto the Band stuff re-recorded after the fact.

3.0 out of 5 stars No great improvement in sound quality, 17 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The Basement Tapes (Audio CD)
Five stars for the music, but if you have the previous remaster from 2000-ish you really don't need this latest one. It's louder, but there's not much increase in depth or detail. It was a lo-fi recording to begin with, don't forget...
