AbstractBob Dylan's Basement Tapes lay in a critical phase of the singer's career, in the shift from a production strictly based on folk-revival models to a new way of songwriting, based on his new electric sound presented in the live and recordings of 1965. In this article a brief analytical survey on four song from that period gives some overall indication about how to look at this repertoire and about its place in the context of the singer’s career, as well as in the history of American popular song.
