Watch the New Bob Dylan ‘Basement Tapes’ Video Narrated by Jeff Bridges
A month following the release of ‘The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11,’ there is now a short film companion piece, ‘From the Village to the Basement.’ The time-lapse video follows the route that took Bob Dylan from Manhattan to the house in West Saugerties, where he and the Band would create many of those ‘Basement Tapes’ recordings in 1967. Watch it in the Facebook post below.
The nearly three-and-a-half-minute video compresses more than 12,000 photos of the journey, which begins in front of the Washington Square Hotel in Greenwich Village and ends at the West Saugerties house that became known as Big Pink.
The film is narrated by actor Jeff Bridges, who thanked Legacy Recordings’ Tom Mullen -- who wrote and created the video -- for giving him a copy of the ‘Basement Tapes’ in a note that read, “Thanks for stoking me out on the Dylan ‘Basement Tapes.’ Man, I’m diggin’ ‘em big time and the packaging is pretty cool.”
'The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11' is out now.
