Columbia / Legacy Recordings have shared another Bob Dylan song that will be on the upcoming release The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11. Above, you can listen to "Dress It Up, Better Have It All."

The song follows a blues shuffle as a piano and electric guitar accompany Dylan's freewheeling vocals. A Little Richard influence can be heard in its rhythm. A precise guitar solo is supported with a fluid bassline as the song rollicks along. The tune falls apart at the end and Dylan lets out a faint laugh.

You can listen to "Lo and Behold!" (Take 1), another song from the upcoming release, here on Zumic.

On November 4th, the recording will be issued as part of Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series Volume 11, which is being released as a 6-CD box set with 138 tracks called The Basement Tapes Complete as well as an abridged 2-CD set with 38 tracks called The Basement Tapes Raw. Vinyl is also available if you wanna get in that '60s spirit! Click the links below for more details on the different editions and to buy at
