In a way, Lost On the River reminds me of Mermaid Avenue, the album by Billy Bragg and Wilco, where they were given a bunch a lyrics penned by Dylan's hero, Woody Guthrie, and turned those into songs. And like Mermaid Avenue, Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes largely succeeds. The album starts with a vengeance with "Down on the Bottom," which features Jim James channeling Dylan's vocal style of the Nashville Skyline era, and some great fuzzed guitar from James and from Elvis Costello. It's unlikely that anything more will come of The New Basement Tapes. All these artists have careers of their own to tend to. But it's interesting to hear these Dylan lyrics come to life - even his castoffs made some really good songs! On a related note, I might also recommend the TV documentary Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued, which is playing on Showtime this month.

skills that were needed for an album that wound up called Lost on the River. That's how Burnett's old pal Elvis Costello, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons, and Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops became a band called the New Basement Tapes (the name seems more of a formality than an actual moniker), and if Burnett's intent was to approximate the communal. balance between his own idiosyncrasies and the Americana currents that flow out of The Basement Tapes. Then again, the whole project is rather impressive: Burnett and the New Basement Tapes remain faithful to the spirit of The Basement Tapes yet take enough liberties to achieve their own identity, which is a difficult trick to achieve.
Most of the songwriters err on the side of avoiding Dylanish settings, in particular, are bland adult-contemporary stuff, and his lack of puckishness means that when he gets to a phrase like "I have paid that awful price," it lands with a dull clunk. To be fair, the funereal Giddens/Mumford setting of "Lost on the River" that closes the album is one of its high points. The MVP of this group turns out to be Elvis Costello, who treats Bob as a band member who didn't happen to show up to the jam that day.

Lost On The River is an album of good, sometimes excellent songs with a unique creation story which, in the end, adds little of substance to the narrative of perhaps the most mythologised recordings in history. How would you define the relationship between this record and The Basement Tapes? The relationship is between the intellect that began both of them, and his way of looking at life and the world. I’m not a scholar of this stuff. Bob is a friend of mine, a man who I love, and I feel I understand him in ways that not many people do – I feel Bob, if you know what I’m saying! But I’m not a Dylanologist. I’ve never listened to the complete Basement Tapes, for instance.
