Well, I am impressed with that purchase….ordered on 14th from amazon Italy. Received today 16th, new sealed unit ( interestingly despatched from Scotland)
For around £52.

If you like the normal ‘ Basement Tapes’ set, you’ll love this.

Roll on ‘Desire’ and ‘ Blood On The Tracks’ era sets


Hi Paul.

Do you know if any other Bootleg Series had the same deluxe packaging?



Hi Rui,

Vol. 10 is still available as a 4-CD-SDE for about EUR 70 (Another Self-Portrait), for Vol. 8 there is a 3-CD SDE incl. 2 books as well (Tell-Tale Signs) but that is deleted and so you have to pay about EUR 250 on the usual sites . And not to forget the 18-CD plus 9-45rpm vinyl single and several other stuff SuperUltraDeluxe-version of Vol. 12 (The Cutting Edge), limited to 5000 numbered boxes worldwide, which currently is a regular guest on Discogs’ monthly charts of the most-expensive item of the month (last month one was sold for about USD 1100).


Thank you very much Klaus.

I just found a copy of Another Self-Portrait in my country (Portugal) for around 65Eur. But the other 2 are off limits :-)

All the Best,

Mad earwig

As someone who likes to try before buying, I have the 18 disc set in flac. It’s good, but too many versions of the same song is a brave and time consuming listen.
I recommend the 6 disc edition as it is more concise, has most of the best versions of the tracks and is a superb set with books etc.


Got the 6-disc version and am happy with it, but still: 18-disc version is on my list what to order after i won the lottery ;-))

Yes the wait was worth it ,got both sets.

Thx Paul


These Basement Tapes are listed as Complete but this one is getting rave reviews also https://www.amazon.com/Basement-Tapes-Bob-Dylan-Band/dp/B001NERPHS/ref=sr_1_1_twi_aud_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1487102419&sr=1-1&keywords=Bob+dylan+The+Basement+Tapes+mfsl I have not compared these track by track but apparently there are some on the two-disc set that are not included in the Complete offering.
Spotify has samplers of both releases. I don’t know if any readers are familiar with the two disc set. Apparently fans need both to be truly Complete.

Tom.That is the original Basement Tapes album released in 1975 to discourage bootleggers. The tracks on that album are enhanced with overdubs to make them more appealing. It’s why the BoOtley 11 set is called the Basement Tapes Raw. The one you link to also includes sessions by The Band after Dylan left town. The Bootleg Series is a Dylan series so doesn’t feature any tracks from those sessions.


This is a great set and outside of the second bootleg series- the Manchester concert, is my favorite of the series. I picked up the cd set and the vinyl set. Now waiting and waiting for the day the Blood On The Tracks sessions are released.

Peter Stanton

Glad to hear that Mad Earwig, as I have just bought them both.

I too hope that hings will quieten down for a while.

Mad earwig

Thanks Paul,
now ordered as I have been waiting for an acceptable price on this for a while and amazon UK are listing this between £80-£300.

Was lucky to have a flac version so know what I’m getting and it is so much better than the normal double cd version with Dylan having a good time.
This and the ‘cutting edge’ set are excellent.

Peter Stanton

Bit the bullet and got this and the 6 CD Cutting Edge for the same price.

Finding your site really has been good news from a music point of view but disastrous financially.

Paolo Meccano

Paul, while I’m glad that you’ve recently alerted me to some great savings on boxes (Beatles, Clash and now this) that I’d previously refrained from purchasing, I hope you’ll forgive me for hoping that things will calm down for the next few months at least…


By the way: i just saw that “The Cutting Edge”-6 CD-box currently sells for the same price as well on Amazon.it.

Simon F

Having already got the triple vinyl set cos I have the original Basement Tapes album on vinyl, I then wanted to hear all the extra material so bought this six CD set from Amazon UK just over a year ago for £60 which I felt was a pretty good deal. A truly fascinating collection.


All good things come to those who wait…well, in this case i haven’t had enough patience and ordered it in November last year thinking this will only go up pricewise for 88 EUR from Amazon.de.
As far as they’re concerned i was right (it’s above 100 EUR currently) but obviously i haven’t thought about our italian friends :-(
At least buying from the German site gave me the download for free…

Thanks to CJ for the book suggestion anyways.

PJ Miller

Similar price for 6 CD Cutting Edge too.

CJ Feeney

From a musical content PoV this is the best of the deluxe Bootleg sets. Also buy a copy of Invisible Republic by Greil Marcus to accompany your listening., His writing style is an aquired taste, but his background research to these recordings and the origins of the older folk songs is excellent.
