I actually own this and can confirm that it sounds remarkable, such an improvement. I too was skeptical because the recordings were so primitive; but it was on sale and so...anyway, I have an original Columbia issue, and the Raw box set—this smokes both those in terms of quality. Much more clarity and depth. They did a great job. The best you could hope for for these recordings: cleaned up and pretty.

This 180 gram "We Are Vinyl" reissue of "The Basement Tapes" is excellent in my opinion. The pressing is solid and the sound is great as well, highly recommended from me! Would have been interesting to see an insert of some kind or something extra for such a legendary album, but the gatefold jacket looks great and the sleeves are highly quality and lined. Very well done all around!

Does anyone know which pressings of this record aren't auto-coupled? Are there any older pressings without auto-coupling? Or only the newer ones?

How much of an improvement is this over the original pressing? Of all the Dylan albums MOFI have done, this is by far the most lo-fi in terms of original recording quality. I'm curious as to how much of an improvement could actually be made over the quality of the original pressing considering how the album was recorded.

“The Basement Tapes” were rumored to exist for almost ten years, occasionally a song, or a bootleg would surface to support this notion, but in reality most people thought they were just another of the many mysteries that surround Dylan ... but rumors persisted. We now know that these tapes made in the basement of the house know as Big Pink, in Woodstock, New York, just west of Saugerties, at 2188 Stroll Road [and in 1992 when I was there, the house was still pink] the rented home of The Band and were the working models for both Dylan’s release of “John Wesley Harding,” and The Band’s outstanding outing “Big Pink.”

This music, this music that celebrated Americana, was one hundred and eighty degrees from the contemporary music of the time which was of a psychedelic nature. There was nothing surreal about these songs, as was the nature of “Blonde On Blonde,” the sound was stripped down, straight forward and supported Bob’s need for the simpler things as he was recovering from his motorcycle accident. Bob would go over to the house every day, it was a very relaxed atmosphere, flush with ease and grace ... everyone was just bouncing ideas off each other, hence the incompleteness of so many of the numbers found here. I suggest that you read “Across The Great Divide” the story of The Band to get a really good feel for these times. Even the cover has a down home subterranean Sgt. Pepper feel to it, that ceases to bring a smile to my face

In any event there are some really fine numbers and the sheer volume will keep you going back for more. I know that each time I play these discs I find something that I had missed on the last listen. This is a sound body of work, one that should not be dismissed as it centers around both Bob Dylan and The Band, so if you are a fan of either or both you will want this release. As a turning point in American music “The Basement Tapes” can not be avoided ... everything changed as a result of these numbers, songs by everyone became more real, and by that I’m not speaking of the the late 1950’s early 1960’s versions of reality and love, this was the real thing, the core, the smile, the holding of your breath because this is the truth.

I don’t play this album often, it’s like the hundred dollar bill I have tucked in the brim of my cowgirl hat, I just have this sense of peace knowing it’s there ... same with this release, I' happy just knowing it’s part of my collection.

In 1967 Bob Dylan was recovering from his much-discussed motorcycle accident. In that time he made in various houses dozens of rough demos with The Band, a group of Canadians who had accompanied him in 1965 on are also much-discussed first electric tour. And the fans and critics continued to talk, because the informal recording sessions formed a fascinating part of Dylan's oeuvre. The songs leaked out and were illegally distributed on the first massively popular bootlegs. A number of songs produced other artists such as The Byrds and Manfred Mann hits on. Eight years later became part still issued on the double album The Basement Tapes (1975). The Baker mixed bag drew on the rich source of the American tradition and influenced rootsy singer/songwriters and americana-bands. Dylan and The Band were in top form and made a handful of classics (I Shall Be Released, Million Dollar Bash, This Wheel's On Fire), but also made a lot of fun with funny covers. In 2014 many more sessions were officially released in a box with six CDs and a slightly more modest Demir. Yet handsome for recordings that were made with cheap equipment and probably never were intended for the general public.

Why are the tracks on the records different from the sleeve?
I.e. Side 1 and 4 on record 1
And side 2 and 3 on record 2.
