The Bootleg Series Vol. 11: The Basement Tapes Complete is a compilation album of unreleased home recordings made in 1967 by Bob Dylan and the group of musicians that would become The Band, released on Legacy Records November 3, 2014.

The Band is the second studio album by the Band, released on September 22, 1969. It is also known as The Brown Album.

The Basement Tapes Bob Dylan & The Band Released 07/01/1975. Some years back, The Band cut a song called "The Rumor. It's a tune that could well describe the music now collected here. The Basement Tapes" are a bit like the phantom 1956 session that brought Elvis, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash together for the first and last time. In spite of the bootlegs and cover versions, "The Basement Tapes" have always been more of a rumor than anything else.

By the time it came out in June 1975, Bob Dylan and the Band's The Basement Tapes was the most famous album never released. It was also one of the most frequently bootlegged. It was written about, dissected, discussed and heralded as a masterpiece before Dylan's record company finally decided to put out some of the songs that were recorded by the singer and his onetime backing band eight years earlier. Following a July 1966 motorcycle accident, Dylan retreated to his home in Woodstock, .

One of the most acclaimed albums in either Dylan’s or the Band’s catalog, The Basement Tapes supposedly documents the collaboration between the two in 1967 following the former’s motorcycle accident. These sessions (which had become legendary as the result of their partial release on rock’s first bootleg) were originally conceived as the source of songs for other artists, with these versions never meant to see the light of day. Upon their release, they were immediately heralded as classics in their own right. The Basement Tapes Q&A.

Alexis Petridis's album of the week. Tapes bootlegs, this does feel a trifle like shutting the proverbial stable door. Still, the preponderance of Basement Tapes bootlegs tells you something about the importance heaped on the music they contain.
