The Bootleg Series Vol. 11: The Basement Tapes: Raw is a compilation album by American singer / songwriter Bob Dylan, released in November 2014 by Columbia Records.

The Basement Tapes have been revered for decades and the “holy grail” for music collectors and Dylan Fans, and have been notoriously bootlegged in various forms over the years. The Basement Tapes Complete was released as a part of the official bootleg series (Vol. 11) and was the first time the complete recordings of the sessions had been officially released. The Basement Tapes Raw was released alongside the "Complete" set is a distillation of that mammoth set.

The Basement Tapes: Raw can't quite be seen as an expansion of the 1975 double LP The Basement Tapes but rather a necessary revision. Shepherded by The Band's Robbie Robertson, that 1975 double-vinyl inserted Band recordings where they didn't belong, suggesting the group were equal partners when it was really Dylan's show.

The Basement Tapes: Raw rights this wrong, stripping away the excess overdubs and excising the ten Band songs, a process which includes handing some of the tunes back over to Dylan, including a wildly careening version of Don't Ya Tell Henry, and then adding in all the major Dylan originals missing from the 1975 LP (I'm Not There, Santa-Fe, Minstrel Boy, Quinn The Eskimo, Get Your Rocks Off, Sign On The Cross) and then adding hints of the covers and general madness that can be found in the complete haul.

Naturally, some gems are available only in the big box, but it's the kind of stuff that seems better in context, when it's surrounded by the heavyweight songs showcased here. On their own on this superb set, those songs amount to a version of The Basement Tapes that not only represents what happened at Big Pink more accurately, but is a thrilling, endlessly captivating listen in its own right.

This limited edition 180 gram heavyweight vinyl triple LP plus double CD box set with 56 page booklet is pressed in the USA.
