From The Village to the Basement - Bob Dylan fans eager to eat up anything related to the new box set, The Basement Tapes, should check out this short film narrated by Jeff Bridges. The actual visuals, comprised of more than 12,000 photos, may not be that exciting, but having The Dude as narrator is selling point enough. (bobdylan.com)
