coming up with something he's calling "The New Basement Tapes." He's taken lyrics Bob wrote at the time of the original basement recordings at Big Pink (my recent photo, left) and added backing with Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford and more. Lo and behold. Yea, heavy, and a bottle of bread.
Update: And, of course, big news this week of first official release of the full original Basement Tapes. And my fictional tribute.
Here's first cut released from the T-Bone "new" album. Jim James on guitar we're told. Mumford singing?
