Editors’ Notes It took 46 years to happen, but the Holy Grail of music bootlegs was finally officially issued completely and as originally recorded. Modern remastering has brought out the best in these primitive recordings made on 7-inch reel-to-reel tapes, primarily in the basement of a house in West Saugerties, N.Y., called Big Pink. Intended for publishing purposes and for fun, these tapes capture Bob Dylan and The Band from March 1967 to as late as 1968 as they work through new songs and covers of classic folk, country, blues, and gospel, inadvertently jumpstarting the entire alt.country movement. It’s an essential 139-track celebration of American music.
