On November 4, Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings will release Bob Dylan’s The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11. The upcoming compilation features recently recovered tracks that have been restored from early tapes of the folk hero’s fabled 1967 recording sessions with his then-unknown touring ensemble (who would later achieve their own acclaim as the Band). We’ve already heard three cuts from the six-disc set: “Lo and Behold!,” “Odds and Ends,” and “Dress It Up, Better Have It All.” Now, we’ve uncovered “900 Miles From My Home,” an American railroad traditional that Dylan’s reworked and strung along with lackadaisical guitar-work. His characteristic growl holds steady, chugging through the homesick lyrics with aching intensity.
