The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 - The Basement Tapes Complete (2014)

This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.


The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 - The Cutting Edge 1965-1966
(2015)

Revised 20 March, 2017.


This is an album of songs performed by Frank Sinatra, release date 3 Feb 2015 (USA), 2 Feb 2015 (Europe). A Deluxe Edition was not released, just the standard CD and a vinyl release (which includes the CD).

The front photo of Bob was taken by William Claxton in 2006. Several people on the Internet have noticed the similarity between the album front and the sleeve art of the Blue Note Records jazz label, so it was suggested the album may appear on the Blue Note label (the CD and record label design is that used by Blue Note). However, as all copies of The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 - The Basement Tapes Raw/Complete came with a flyer advertising this album, it was after all to be released on the Columbia/Sony Music label. The album sleeve is indeed inspired by the iconic album sleeves created for Blue Note by Reid Miles between 1955 and 1967, such as the 1962 Hub-Tones album by Freddie Hubbard, thanks to Harold Lepidus for the information. Thanks to Dag Braathen for the Blue Note record label and the album poster. The CD design also uses the Blue Note record label design.

Thanks to Derek Barker for information about Full Moon And Empty Arms, a song which appeared on the bobdylan.com home page on 13 May 2014. The song was written by Buddy Kaye and Ted Mossman, based on a theme by Sergei Rachmaninoff, in 1945 and was a hit for Frank Sinatra in that year. Thanks to Dag Braathen for finding the sheet music to Blue Moon by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, performed by Bob on Self Portrait in 1970 and reissued in a remastered version on The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 - Another Self Portrait (1969-1971) in 2013, which has the moon and clouds design used for Bob's version of Full Moon And Empty Arms!

Bob amazed fans by performing the Frank Sinatra classic Stay With Me, written by Jerome Moross and Carolyn Leigh, the theme tune from the 1963 Otto Preminger film, "The Cardinal", as the last encore from the Dolby Theater, Hollywood, CA, on 26 Oct 2014. we now know this is another song from Shadows In The Night.

In the rear picture you'd expect Bob to be looking at a Sinatra 7" single, but it's actually a Sun record! Thanks to Rob Joy for identifying it as Johnny Cash's Get Rhythm/I Walk The Line

Rob says "Based on the larger version of the photo on the rear sleeve of the vinyl edition of Shadows In The Night I think that the record Bob and the masked lady are holding is Johnny Cash - Get Rhythm/I Walk The Line as re-released by Jack White's Third Man Records on 21 May 2013. The B-side I Walk The Line is facing the camera. The record definitely is not an original Sun pressing, but a Third Man re-release, because it has the newly designed sleeve, which is exclusive to the Third Man Sun reissues. Also the black dot on the right side of the label is the Third Man Records logo, which of course cannot be found on Sun originals. The fact that it must be a Third Man reissue considerably narrows down the number of records from which the one in the photo was chosen. Based on the shape of the words on the label (the photo is too blurry even on the larger vinyl version to be readable) my conclusion is that it should be the Johnny Cash 7" mentioned above. I cannot really see the "I" from "I Walk The Line", but other than that it's the only one of the Third Man Sun discs that fits the visual. This also means the photo is from 2013 or later. Unless of course the record Bob is holding in the original photo is another record and the Third Man disc was photoshopped into the picture."

Also thanks to Andreas Volkert.

Other songs recorded at the 2014 sessions:

That Old Black Magic (Harold Arlen/Johnny Mercer) (released in May 2016 on Fallen Angels)
Young At Heart (Johnny Richards/Carolyn Leigh) (released in May 2016 on Fallen Angels)

Also rumoured was a duet of Somethin' Stupid (Clarence Carson Parks) with Lana Del Rey (Elizabeth Woolridge Grant)! However, when Lana was asked about this on Friday 18 Sep 2015 by Matthew Ingate she said "I f*cking wish I'd sung with Bobby, it's a dream, he's a real hero. But I'd die if we sang together, especially a Sinatra song. But he's just so hard to reach out to, he really keeps himself to himself. I would love to sing with him, just once, though."

Brunswick 8443 (USA 1939)
On 15 Oct 2015 Bob surprised the audience at Braunschweig (Brunswick), Germany by performing Melancholy Mood! Melancholy Mood (Walter Schumann/Vick R. Knight Sr.), now released on Fallen Angels, was the B-side of Frank Sinatra's first single in 1939! The A-side was From The Bottom Of My Heart (Harry James/Andy Gibson/Billy Hays/Morty Beck). This single was on the US Brunswick label, and considering Bob, where he first performed the song is not likely to be a coincidence. Thanks to Hermann Rechberger, who was at the show, for the information, and also to Sonny Boy McFitzson.

The album sold very well, for example reaching No. 1 in the UK in Mar 2015, a second album of Sinatra songs called Fallen Angels was released on 20 May 2016, and a triple album Triplicate will be released in Mar 2017!

Thanks to Keith Venturoni, Szymon Struzyna and several others for information about the Record Store Day 2015 7" single on blue vinyl of The Night We Called It A Day/Stay With Me from Shadows In The Night, released on 18 Apr 2015 in the USA and UK. This is listed in International Singles 2010s.

Columbia 88875057962 (USA) - front with sticker, scan by Gerd Rundel

The regular US CD release comes in a jewel case with a sticker on the front. The sticker has catalogue number "88875057962 S1" unlike the Canadian and US stickers, which just have catalogue number "88875057962". The big surprise is that all inserts have catalogue number "88875057962" while the CD has catalogue number "88875051242" (same as the CD with the US LP package and the "AARP" release below). See above for detailed CD scans. The reverse of the rear insert is plain blue with a small catalogue number "88875057962" at bottom right.

This release sold in Canada has the same catalogue number as the European release, not the catalogue number on the CD included with the US LP or the CD given away with "AARP" magazine. It has the US front and rear inserts with no mention of Canada. The only Canadian information is on the front sticker (two French words) and on the CD itself. The Canadian CD also has the Sony Music logo, not used in the USA.

It comes in a jewel case with a sticker on the front and a single stiff card front insert. The reverse of the rear insert (not shown) is plain blue, without a catalogue number, unlike the Australian and Japanese releases below. It can't normally be seen, because the CD tray is black.

Columbia 88875057962 (Australia) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This CD release has Australian information on the reverse of the front insert, the rear insert and the CD itself. It has what looks like the same front sticker on the jewel case as the European release. The reverse of the rear insert is plain blue, but this time has the catalogue number, like the Japanese release below. Bill Hester has a copy of the same album bought in New Zealand, and points out that this time the CD tray is clear so you can see the catalogue number. Bill also says that the CD and inserts only say "Distributed in Australia by ...", not that the album was manufactured there.
