On Nov. 4, Bob Dylan superfans finally found their holy grail: “The Basement Tapes Complete,” a comprehensive, six-disc set of Dylan and The Band’s famed (and oft-bootlegged) 1967 recordings made in upstate New York. The following week saw the release of “Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes,” a new batch of songs that puts previously unused Dylan lyrics from that same period to music. On Tuesday, Dylan brings his Never Ending Tour back to D.C. for a stop at Constitution Hall. Here are some Dylan facts by the numbers.
