OUT OF THE BASEMENT

by

Bob Dylan’s most recent release, The Basement Tapes Complete, lumbered into the spotlight a few weeks ago with a quantity and quality of critical approval it’s impossible to imagine any other contemporary artist inducing. Recorded in 1967 with the Band, during a self-imposed sabbatical, the glorious American sounds captured on these six CDs is about as authentic and as innocent as it gets. So one can imagine Dylan, 73, seizing the opportunity to give this mightily fetishized material a final victory lap in the autumn of his career. Instead, expect Dylan to play pretty much the same glacially morphing set he’s been reworking with his crackerjack band for years. It’s what he wants you to hear during this five-night run, and it’s what will be delivered.
