I've been shirking my duties as #1 Dylan fan due to lack of funds. I would love to get The Complete Basement Tapes, and I don't really want to get the "standard" version because it honestly seems kind of lame. I haven't listened to it (though I have the Tree With Roots bootleg, obviously) but looking at the track listing, it's mostly alternate takes of songs that were already on the 1975 collection. And not even alternate takes of the best songs. So I'd much rather have Complete, but because Columbia are horrible, it's like $100. Argh. It's the first Dylan album I haven't gotten on the day of release since the No Direction Home soundtrack! It's driving me nuts!
*Ahem* All of that is to say that, regardless of that, I'll of course be getting Shadows In The Night when it comes out. Interesting concept for an album, although nothing Dylan does surprises me anymore. I predict it will be perfectly decent, but probably not anything more than that.
