Conversations About Her

Bob Dylan – Tupelo (John Lee Hooker Cover) | New Music

 

Many of the songs that Bob Dylan recorded at Big Pink in 1967 were released as bootleg records or never saw the light. The Basement Tapes was an incomplete release that missed up to 30 recordings. Some of them have recently been unveiled including Dress It Up, Better Have It All”, “Lo and Behold!” and “Odds and Ends”. Now one more track has been revealed, a cover of blues musician John Lee Hooker.

 

“Tupelo” recalls the flooding of Tupelo, Mississippi, in 1936, narrated by Dylan in Hooker’s talking blues style. “Tupelo” will appear in a new compilation of the Basement Tapes sessions titled The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11, due out on November 4 on Sony Legacy Recordings. It will feature 138 songs, 30 of which were never released before.

 

Stream “Tupelo” below via Stereogum, and other uncovered tracks at SPIN, Death & Taxes, and Brooklyn Vegan.
