1-4, 6-8 Levon Helm (drums).

 

Notes

The instrumentation above is taken from Griffin, but are essentially unknown in the sense that all involved musicians were multi-instrumentalists and no written documentation remains.

Lines notes below refer to THE BASEMENT TAPES COMPLETE liner notes.

1-7 started circulating among collectors September-October 1992.

3 Griffin claims that this song was recorded 3 October. In the lner notes it is a traditional song called One Kind Favor. See also Barker, page 313.

4 is also called Coming Round The Mountain.

5 is called It's The Flight Of The Bumblebee in the liner notes and attributed to Bob Dylan. Since not much of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakovs composition is left, this seems correct. See Griffin, page 227.

8 is unreleased and uncirculated.
