Almost 40 years ago, Bob Dylan partially released ‘The Basement Tapes’. The entire box set- including six CD’s, 138 tracks, and 118 previously unreleased recordings- was finally released last month. To celebrate, and give listeners and fans a better understanding of the sets back story, Dylan has released a short film… narrated by The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges.

Inspired by the road trip Dylan and his bandmates took from a Manhattan hotel to a pink house in upstate New York’s West Saugerties, the film’s creator, Tom Mullen, compressed more than 12,000 photos to create the short film, beginning at NYC’s Washington Square Hotel and ending at Big Pink’s driveway.

"Big Pink is a pilgrimage for people," Mullen tells Mashable.

"It's as if Jeff Bridges is next to you telling you the story on a road trip, like if you're with your parents and they're telling you a story," Mullen added.

"What I learned from the trip is how much this place means — how important this pilgrimage is and how people really connect to it," he says.
