Editorial Reviews

Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes is a music event 47 years in the making. It's an historic album project from five of music's finest artists -- Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) -- in unique collaboration with a 26-year-old Bob Dylan. Produced by project creator T Bone Burnett, the album was recorded in March, 2014 at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where the artists and Burnett convened for two weeks to write and create music for a treasure trove of long-lost lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes. The collective completed and recorded dozens of songs, the first 20 of which appear on this deluxe edition.

Bob Dylan lyrics, left in a drawer, create a breeding ground. Every musician involved composes new music in which the destiny of these words is at last fulfilled. The music is enduring and diverse. The biggest name here is Elvis Costello and he shines on the humorous rocker "Married to My Hack" and on the gospel-flavored "Six Months in Kansas City (Liberty Street)". But the names that are more sub rosa in the music field engage themselves fully in the music. They switch instruments from song to song. Taylor Goldsmith is at home in the folk taletelling of "Florida Key". Jim James, from My Morning Jacket, musically connects the dots no better than on "Quick Like a Flash", which can only be found on the Deluxe Edition. The same can be said for Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) on the countryish "The Whistle is Blowing", also only found the the Deluxe Edition. But the singer who tops them all is Rhiannon Giddens from the Carolina Chocolate Drops and she plays a fine fiddle and banjo too. Imagine that burst of excitement you feel when you first make contact with her singing on the poetic "Spanish Mary" and on "Hidee Hidee Ho #16" with her voice and Joey Bellorose's shoe-box drum sound. And her haunting delivery on "Lost on the River #20", backed by the stone great acoustic guitars of Goldsmith and Mumford, is something of beauty and transcendence. It gets to the root of American folklore.

Unlike Dylan's "Basement Tapes", this doesn't have that album's informal surroundings and it even sounds slick in parts. But I like this music for what it achieves and that's reaccessing that old "Basement Tapes" spirit. They're having a great time making music together. There's no sense of entitlement, just grateful acknowledgement from musicians and producer.

No- it won't "sound" like Dylan, at least not musically. No- it won't "sound" like The Basement Tapes- at least not many of the cuts - though I think some do. Bottom line, and the mark of quality music, is that it won't matter- you would buy this if it was not connected to Dylan or The Band. And Yes- you will be able to know which of the collaborators wrote each tune by their style….very identifiable- who cares. Bottom line- Very High Quality Music. Very enjoyable the first time you listen to it- which is saying something for me! Hell, T Bone Burnett has his finger prints all over it….say n'more. Enjoy.

What changed my perception of this release was seeing the video footage from the sessions. True collaboration; seeing how they wrote, interacted; the difference in approach. My respect for Mumford went from little to sky high; saw Jim James in a low key atmosphere; Costello as the elder statesman. The best part IMO was to see different writers have a go t the same set of lyrics, and hear the results. We hear, what?...maybe 3 or 4 versions of "Lost on the River"? Love the release. And these kind of undertakings can backfire; but Burnett had a very secure handle on it.

I really approached this collection of Dylan lyrics augmented by music written by a cast of contemporary musical luminaries with great trepidation. How would 47 year old lyrics "fit" with the modern styles and musical inclinations of the likes of Marcus Mumford, Elvis Costello et al? The answer is just brilliantly! This is an album anyone-not just Dylan fans-will love. And there are reputedly at least two more volumes to come! Essential

This album is fantastic! All of the songs are good and interesting, but so many of the songs and melodies on this album are mind-blowingly good and touch me deeply. I was already a big fan of Marcus Mumford and Elvis Costello, but now I LOVE Rhiannon Giddens, too!! Kansas City, Spanish Mary, and Hidee Hidee Ho #16 are my top favs!! Grand slam!!

This disc exceeded all expectations!!!! Obviously the lyrics were created by a master song writer, but each artist breathes their own life into the material. As you listen to it you hear traces of Elvis C, Dawes, My morning jacket, Mumford and the Chocolate Drops. However, none of these artists strays too far from the material as the band gels to make some exciting new music without it being just an extension of the bands mentioned above.

I purchased the standard 15 track edition so I can't comment on the extra 5 songs included in the deluxe edition. This is a great collection of songs if you are a fan of the contributing artists' other work. They only use Dylan's lyrics, none of the music was written by him, so there is not a lot of Dylan influence in the music itself. Married to My Hack and Spanish Mary are probably the closest to what I'd consider a Dylan sound.

The makeup of the album is about an equal number of songs written by each artist. If you've watched the accompanying documentary on Showtime (also recommended), you'll know that each artist pretty much wrote their own songs and directed the others on how they wanted them performed. The actual songwriting was not very collaborative with Lost on the River #20 being one exception. So the overall feel of the album is more of a collection of individual songs by different artists than an album by one group. I don't think it takes away much from the album, though, and I do enjoy it a lot. Since the songs were recorded live and each artist was included in some way on each one, there is a cohesiveness to it that you wouldn't get if this was, say, a normal tribute album.

Favorite tracks include: Kansas City, Spanish Mary, Nothing to It, Florida Key, and Lost on the River #20.
