You Can Rent Big Pink, the House Where Bob Dylan Recorded The Basement Tapes

In 1967, during his period of convalescence, Bob Dylan and the band that would eventually become the Band recorded more than 100 tracks in an upstate New York house now known as the Big Pink. Dylan & Co. would whittle those tracks down to his seminal 1975 double LP The Basement Tapes, an album essentially written and recorded in a pink-hued void, cut off from modern pop music. You can now rent that void for the low price of $650 a night, for a minimum of two nights. The house currently has a perfect five-star rating, based on five reviews. Sadly, the posting says “the basement is not included in the rental,” but a futon is, so if you ever wanted to write an album called The Futon Tapes, now’s your chance.
