You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere Take 1 of has Dylan playfully making up lyrics as he goes along. Dylan calls The Band “basement noise” in one verse. For Dylan fans, early versions of the songs are a delight to discover.

The Basement Tapes
See What’s In The Three Versions of Bob Dylan’s The Basement Tapes for the exact contents of each set.
The Basement Tapes is an important historical recording for Bob Dylan. It represents Dylan’s transition from drug-fueled rock imagery in Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde to his new sparse country based music on John Wesley Harding.
While The Band recorded some of these songs, Dylan ignored them and recorded all new material on John Wesley Harding. The Basement Tapes were distributed to other artists to cover.
