Eagle Rock Entertainment has selected May 26 for documentary filmmaker Sam Jones’ Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued … Blu-ray and DVD editions will be available.
Imagine finding a trunk full of lost Rembrandt or Picasso paintings, that’s pretty much what happened with a treasure-trove of Bob Dylan lyrics from 1967 (16 unfinished tunes from his legendary “Basement Tapes” sessions) that were distributed to such recording artists as Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford and others to interpret.
The result was the release of the “Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes” CD last November. This documentary chronicles the creative process that went into Grammy-winning producer T Bone Burnett’s selection of artists to “rediscover” Dylan’s lost works and the finished product of their efforts.
Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued is nothing short of extraordinary … 106 minutes of pure joy!!!
