  The Basement Tapes
A two-disc set of ad hoc performances from 1967, albeit refurbished slightly for this release, "The Basement Tapes" provides the missing link between Dylan's long, poetic songs of the mid 60s and the shorter, more direct songs of the late 60s.
Most of this music is selected from the many songs originally taped by Garth Hudson during the basement sessions with Dylan in Big Pink.
In his book Bob Dylan: The Recording Sessions, Clinton Heylin is rather critical to the selection of songs used on this album, claiming that several of the tracks were not recorded during the basement sessions with Dylan.

But for the official album the record company took the original stereo tapes, collapsed them into mono, overdubbed new parts (including drums which are largely excluded on the original performances), and filled out much of the album not with basement tapes but with in-studio demos recorded by the Band without Dylan.
The tapes in their original form are mostly covers, but covers pulled up from deep within America's cultural consciousness.

This cover of Tommy Roe's chart-topping Buddy Holly soundalike "Sheila" is one of them, and though a poor-fidelity live version that the group taped a couple of months later in Hamburg was issued as part of the Star-Club tapes, this would presumably be both better sounding and a better performance.
It's likely, however, that the tape was erased or has vanished forever.
No tape has surfaced, however, and it seems possible that if such a session took place, it might not have even been taped.
