At last, we're allowed into the Basement...,
This review is from: Million Dollar Bash: Bob Dylan, the Band, and the Basement Tapes (Paperback)At last we have the fullest possible guidebook to the legendary Basement Tapes. Griffin shines an often witty light on who sang and played what in the Basement of Big Pink, West Saugerties, NY 1967-68.
This is a fascinating book for Dylan fans (BobCats), Band fans (we're BandHeads) and all music-lovers curious to learn more about this wonderful episode in rock history.
If you have any of the music but feel hindered from listening further through 'mixed-up confusion', you can now make sense of these often chaotic pieces with help from Sid Griffin's detailed notes. The music becomes more enjoyable and more remarkable. We learn that the musicians (soon to be known as The Band) were so much more than just Dylan's back-up guys. And as The Band, they were one of the greatest groups ever.
Thanks to Sid Griffin, for a wonderful book. All music-lovers: Enjoy!
