Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings have announced that it will release Bob Dylan’s The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 Nov. 4. The full set will contain six CDs with 138 tracks taken from Dylan’s 1967 recording sessions with The Band and compiled from the original tapes with many unreleased tracks. A two-disc CD and three-album vinyl set series of highlights will also be released. (The Basement Tapes were first released as a bootleg, The Great White Wonder, in 1969).

Columbia first released 16 songs from the tapes legitimately in 1975 as The Basement Tapes. It went Top 10 in the U.S. and UK.  According to Columbia/Legacy, The Basement Tapes Complete will feature “every salvageable recording from the tapes, including recently discovered early gems recorded in the ‘Red Room’ of Dylan’s home in upstate New York.”

According to the label, Garth Hudson of the Band worked with Canadian music archivist and producer Jan Haust to restore the deteriorating tapes to pristine sound. The set features The Basement Tapes Complete as intact as possible, the label says, with the sound as close to the way they were originally recorded and sounded back in the summer of 1967, and also mostly in chronological order.
