Trivia Edit

  • these "Mother B's Bedroom Tapes" were two 10" reels that were found in Cedella Booker's bedroom in 1981.
  • both reels were restored in 1989 by Roger Steffens.
  • considered a true gem among fans , because most of the songs are quite different from what was released. They also give a deep insight in the songwriting process and even in some of Bob's thoughts.
  • "Slogans" is the only track that has been officially released (after heavy postproduction and overdubbing).
